    Fuss Pot

    "Fuss Pot" was a strip that first appeared in issue one of Knockout, dated 12 June 1971; it later moved to Whizzer and Chips after Knockout ended. It was drawn by Norman Mansbridge. The main character was an incredibly picky girl who found something to complain about in any situtation.
