    Whizzer and Chips
  Holiday Special 1978

   The 1978 Special sports fantastic cover art from Mike Lacey.
   Inside the intergalactic stars of "Space School" dominate
   proceedings by appearing four times. And Thomas Williams
   is the busiest artist. He stands in for messrs
Lacey, Knox,
   and Millington
on "Sid's Snake", "Lucky Dick" and "Hover
   Boots", before returning to "Tiny Tycoon"...

   The centre-page "game" is a bit of con, though. It's simply
   a checkeboard of red and blue squares. You add the dice
   and counters yourself, and there isn't even a sniff of an
   illustration, or a cut-out character or number wheel to
   make up - Yah-boo!
