 Mr & Mrs SlimmSammy Slimm
    The Slimms
Mr and Mrs Slimm were an over-fed duo who were always
    on the scrounge for food. But their scheming son Sammy
    was constantly foiling their plans with traps and tricks to
    stop them scoffing - for their own good, of course.

    There were only two possible outcomes. In the first, Mum
    and Dad came out on top, ridding themselves of Sammy
    and giving them freedom to scoff as much nosh as they
    wanted. And in the second, devious Sammy would thwart
    the duo and force them into a painful bout of exercise...

    You know, you just couldn't get away with this now.
    Mum and Dad's predicament would be "discussed" on
    Morning TV and Sammy paraded before the audience
    as the pantomime villain of the piece.

    S'funny how the world has changed.

    The Slimms started life as Cor!! stars. When the comic
    merged with Buster in 1974 they were dropped for a while,
    only to spring back into the Fleetway weeklies in Whizzer
    & Chips - Presumably, the word "Chips" got their tums
    rumbling again...
