Wuff, Snuff and Tuff

Another bookshop find, a collection of William Timyn's strips originally seen in WOMAN magazine. Not sure what year this is from, but it looks like 40's or 50's judging by the print technology. The strips themselves are nothing special, but the design and layout is something I'd like to try to emulate sometime -

Seems they also inspired a puppet from Pelhams, though I can't tell if they produced all 3 identical pups.

'Tim' also created the more familiar Beep and Booster from Blue Peter (- thank you Toonhound!).
Right, back to work, Jim.
