April 18, 1953: Roger the Dodger makes his debut

Roger_the_Dodger-characterRoger the Dodger, real name is Roger Dawson, is a fictional character featured regularly in the UK comic The Beano. His strip consists solely of Roger’s basic remit to avoid doing chores and homework which usually involves him concocting complex and ultimately disastrous plans, the undoing of which results in him being punished (usually by his long-suffering father). To perform these tasks he enlists the help of his many ‘dodge books’. [Wikipedia]
