Whizzer and Chips Holiday Special 1971
    Whizzer and Chips
  Holiday Special 1971

   A 96-page extravanganza here, for Whizz-kids and Chip-ites
   alike. The 1971 Summer Special features every top toon
   from the weekly comics, in the giddy days before those
   "Knockout"  stars and others were involved in proceedings.
   What's more, it's all strips, with ne'er a one-off wonder
   or filler puzzle page in sight...
   The standout is a magnificently offensive "Shiner" strip,
   in which our gloved chum drops by the local Zoo to box 
   a rhino, an elephant, a kangaroo and an octopus. Yes,
   you read that right. We get to see Shiner walloping a
   rhinoceros - You couldn't do that nowadays!
