Sweet Tooth (comics)

Sweet Tooth was a fictional character in a comic strip in the British comic Whizzer and Chips, first appearing in January 1973. A "Whizz-Kid" in the comic, and about a boy who has a fixation for sweets, continually hounded by Greedy Greg (originally Bully Bloggs), it joined Buster after Whizzer and Chips merged with it in 1990. It remained in the comic until the end, a rerun by this time.

A main feature of the comic was the prominent front tooth that the character always displayed.

Though other artists, including Vic Neill drew strips from time to time, Trevor Metcalfe was the main artist throughout, though Jack Edward Oliver included Sweet Tooth on the last page of the final issue of Buster in January 2000, explaining that Sweet Tooth's "sweet tooth" eventually went bad from all the sweet eating.

Famous quotes containing the words sweet and/or tooth:

    Protestantism has the method of Jesus with His secret too much left out of mind; Catholicism has His secret with His method too much left out of mind; neither has His unerring balance, His intuition, His sweet reasonableness. But both have hold of a great truth, and get from it a great power.
    Matthew Arnold (1822–1888)

    Poverty is the result of bad adjustment between the soul and its desires.... In the days of great poverty, I did not mind the sensation of hunger.... But ... to be deprived of tooth paste, to brush the teeth without it, was a dreadful thing, a daily discomfort.
    Alice Foote MacDougall (1867–1945)
