Comic / Comic Feature
25 appearances (over 25 pages) between issue no. 1 (24/09/77) and no. 25 (11/03/78).
The first seventeen were printed in colour, the rest in black and white.

Jungle Japes with Colonel Podgy Whiner, Large White Hunter (as in Large White Butterfly Hunter), and his ape friend Lumpy Gibbon. Lumpy grew to King Kong proportions overnight while Whiner slept, after washing down Whiner's 10 years' supply of dried dumplings with copious amounts of water, when the two of them met in the first episode.

In issue nos. 13 and 15 (the weeks before and after the Christmas edition) the strip was replaced by a poster featuring the pair ("A Cool Yule Poster" and a 1978 Calendar)
