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
, 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.
