Whoopee was Fleetways third longest running comic, and it packed up and joined Whizzer and Chips on the week following 6th April 1985. With it came many classics such as Boy Boss, bookworm, calculator kid, the bumpkin billionaires and more.
In 1989, Whizzer and chips did one last merge - with the scarce scouse mouse comic. The sub-title was dropped after 6 issues, and the scouse mouse stories were dropped in early 1990.Scouse Mouse issue 5, March 1989 (Above).
A few years later Whizzer and Chips changed their logo for the last time, to a more modern, computerise design. By 1990, it was just one comic and was filled with reprints. Then, on 27th October 1990, it too packed up, becoming Fleetway's second most popular title.It joined the companies only surving comic - Buster. First Buster Whizzer and chips (above). Last Buster with Whizzer and chips (below).Buster struggled on until 1995, when it became fortnightly. It too started featuring reprints on almost every other page. But still it struggled on through the decade. At the turn of the century however, it died. Buster was last sold on 4th January 2000. Final issue of Buster (above).
