O'Naire & Penny Less
was a poor man's Ivor Lott &
Tony Broke, with Milly
playing the stinking rich one and purseless Penny
Milly's high-faluting ways at Moneybags Mansion would
inevitably see her coming a cropper, whilst Penny
parents would make-do and came out trumps each week.
What can one say? This was very much the mixture as
before, with Miss Milly scattering cash like it grew
and poor penny-pinching Penny looking on agog.
Ivor Lott and Tony Broke had originally been Cor!!
before they transfered o Buster, so it all fitted snugly
when Jackpot comic merged with Buster in February 1982
and Milly and Penny teamed up with Ivor and Tony to
us the longest Fleetway strip title ever seen:
Ivor Lott and Tony Broke
with Milly O'Naire and Penny Less
In September 1985 that twisting title was cut down to
dropping the girls name altogether - though they still
starred in the strips. But at the beginning of 1987
girls' luck ran out and they were dropped altogether.
Still, they had lasted 8 solid years in the Fleetway
comics, with the fabulous Sid Burgon holding the
pen throughout their run...
