The Funny Wonder. London: 24 Tudor Street [Harmsworth Bros.]. Vol. 9, no. 215 (new series). 13 March 1897.

Chubblock Homes, a burlesque version of Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes (for which, see B21), was invented and drawn by Irish artist Jack B. Yeats. Commencing in Comic Cuts on 16 June 1894, the series was subsequently transferred to page 1 of The Funny Wonder the same year, running there on a weekly basis until 1897 (Horn 6.823). Repeats ran in Comic Cuts in 1906–7, the name now spelt Chublock Homes. See also B21–B28.
