Long-running comic strip from the pages of the Beano. Lord Snooty (real name Marmaduke Bunkerton) is a little toff in a top hat, who leads his gang of pals (who he obviously pays to hang around with him) into battles with the Gasworks Gang (a similar outfit to the Bash Street Kids, only evil). They would get into all kinds of scrapes, usually involving the fat kid eating everyone's lunch at some point. The strip was created by Dudley D. Watkins in 1938, and has run in some form for over 50 years.

Lord Snooty is mentioned on two Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band tracks : The Intro and The Outro and My Pink Half Of The Drainpipe. The strip was something of a quaint anachronism even then.
