"Korky the Cat" is a strip that runs in The Dandy. It stars an often mischevious cat who has taken on a number of roles over the decades.
In 1984 Desperate Dan - another character who'd been in The Dandy from the first issue - displaced Korky as the comic's cover star. Korky seemed to fall out of favour in subsequent years, never becoming quite as beloved a character as Dan. At around the time of The Dandy's 2004 overhaul, readers were polled on their favourite and and least favourite characters, and Korky didn't get a single vote in either category. When the new-look Dandy appeared, Korky was nowhere to be seen.
He did eventually appear in the new-look publication, however, interviewing TV personalities in a hip new guise. When The Dandy was given another overhaul in late 2010 Phil Corbett began drawing the strip.
