   Kid King - Reg Parlett style
    Kid King
Such an obvious idea for a kids' strip, it's a surprise this
    wasn't done sooner: Kid King was young boy king. A twelve
    year old keen to do what twelve year olds do - muck about,
    binge on fast food and sweets and have fun. He was forever
    attempting to duck his royal duties to go and play with
    his mates, much to the irritation of the Lords and Ladies
    of his royal entourage, and in particular his valet,
    Lord Claude...

    But what, exactly, was he King of? - I don't recall a
    country ever being named. And hang about, that was
    public money he was blowing on those absurd pranks
    and games!

     Kid king - Robert Nixon style
