 Ray loved riddles. In every strip he would try to work out
    the answer to one. He'd get in a muddle with people and
    things around him, and by some so-queer-it-only-happens
    -in-comics twist of fate, he'd solve the bleedin' thing!

    Ray was actually solving riddles suggested by readers, who
    stood to get a £1 bounty if their riddle was picked. As a
    consequence, those there riddles were hardly brain-busters:

   "What do you call a camel with three humps?"
   "What has teeth but doesn't bite?"
   "Why is a dentist unhappy at his work?"


    Still, it stopped him getting into mischief on street corners,
    or dabbling in petty crime...

    Ray's weekly appearances ended when Shiver & Shake
    merged with Whoopee!, but he later resurfaced in 1980
    as a reprint in the pages of the Jackpot annual...
