Cheerio [1919]

Country: UK
Total Issues: 49

A somewhat confusing title which was described (in Writers and Artists Yearbook for 1920) as containing "Serial stories suitable for boys reading. Good healthy adventure, sea, school, detective, colonial. Plenty of incident and no elaborate verbage. Length 6000 to 10000 words. Complete stories same style 3000 to 4000 words in length. Also articles with hobbies of interest to boys." The copy was presumably released before the paper was launched, because the actual magazine was very different.

According to collector Bill Lofts: " 'A Cheerful Paper for Cheerful People' was the blurb at the heading, whilst its contents, apart from cartoons drawn by the great Film Fun artist G.W. Wakefield, Fred Bennett and A.B. Payne, had serious serials and love stories such as 'The Fellow Who Loved Violet Hobson', 'Smoking Room Stories', (and) articles on famous jockeys and film stars such as Owen Nares. 'Hunting for a Flat' was another article in a later issue which I am sure will confirm that Cheerio was without question an adult market paper." (W.O.G. Lofts, A.C.E. Newsletter No.64, June 1984

Also from Lofts (Collectors' Digest Vol.21 No.245,-May-1967, pp30-31): No.1 appeared-May-17, 1919, priced 1½ d, with its cover portraying the great George Robey. Inside page had a serial story called "The Debts of Jasper Strange, V.C." Private, millionaire, ex-convict, and illustrated by J. Louis Smythe. Another page had a picture of Miss Alma Taylor. Smoking Room stories being witty; nutty; chirpy, and new, filled yet another page. Centre pages were filled with a serious drawing by G.M. Payne of Gnr. James Hardy who won the V.C. and came from my old Regiment in the Royal Artillery. "From Milly to Tilly" was yet another backchat page being the tittle-tattle of a tame typist to her girl friend. Serials by E. Allingham and H.B. Richmond prolific comic serial writers were also featured, and the last page on the back cover had Footlight Favourites with photos of Annie Saker, Fay Compton, Gladys Cooper, Owen Nares, Iris Hoey, Seymour Hicks and Margaret Bannerman. Other pages were filled with large half page cartoons that appeared in Titbits and Blighty though it did advertise Greyfriars Herald and Boys' Cinema.
