Encyclopedia > John Geering

British cartoonist with a distinctive, occasionally flamboyant style, most famous for his work for DC Thomson titles including Sparky, Topper, Nutty and the Beano. Geering's characters include - Puss 'n' Boots, a more anarchic, surreal take on the traditional cat-and-dog strips, complete with bizarre dialogue and situations - Boots, for example, having taken a gardening job, boasts that the perks include "all the grass I can eat", whilst Puss can be found selling ice cream at the North Pole. Smudge, correctly billed as the world's dirtiest schoolboy, relishing any opportunity to get covered in grime and filth that presents itself. Bananaman, a bungling superhero whose alter-ego is a stubble-headed schoolboy. This character proved particularly popular during its run in the Beano, and spawned an animated television series voiced by Bill Oddie, Tim Brooke-Taylor and Graeme Garden. Geering has also produced topical and political satire cartoons for British newspapers.
