    And we all know Andy Capp himself isn’t in the “everyone else” category.

    When did the Vicar shave off his mustache, anyway?

    Did anyone else notice that in the 2 top panels, the Vicar has 4 fingers on his right hand, but 5 on his left?

    As an aside, what ever happened to the characters’ accents? As I recall, even Andy Capp is a phonetic spelling of the way Hartlepudlians pronounce handicap.

    Probably parents complaining that kids weren’t going to learn to speak properly if they read Andy Capp, and so they made a change….sadly

    what a shame—i wish they would just leave it alone…it was better w/ the “accent”

    I agree, that’s why Andy has regained his accent in my (And #6’s) “fan art”

    Absolutely.



    The Vicar’s chum clearly doesn’t read the funny pages in The Daily Mirror.

    I agree, without the accent it loses it’s identity.

    @Number Six:

    How’s about having a go at representing the Glaswegian accent?
