Cigarettes and Alcohol: Andy Capp

Paul Slade
For Smythe, it was still Andy and Flo?s small domestic struggles that gave the strip its fascination. Andy?s slapstick antics in the pub may be what pulled readers in, but it was his scenes at home with Flo that kept them coming back for more. ?When characters are as deeply-felt and understood as Andy and Florrie, ideas aren?t all that difficult to come by,?

Smythe found the town?s stoical outlook on life was just as he?d remembered it, and its people remained a constant source of inspiration. ?The mindset?s exactly the same,? he told one reporter. ?I can still go down to the Boilermakers? Club and get two or three ideas just listening to the conversation.? To Lilley again, he adds: ?I go to pubs and the dogs and the sort of places Andy might be?.

Their advice to these beginners is to study the clear and accurate layout of each panel, to look at how well each panel sits with the one before and the one that follows, and to analyse the perfectly-balanced use of black and white shapes. No-one does it better.?

Smythe?s own explanation for the strip?s universal appeal was that everyone not only knows what?s funny, but also knows that members of the opposite sex are frequently baffling, frustrating and almost impossible to bear ? and never more so than when they?re sharing your accommodation.

Smythe?s secret in showing us Andy?s world so accurately was simply that he knew it so well. Where an outsider might have injected cheap sentiment or self-conscious social comment into the strip, Smythe simply produced a slightly heightened version of the streets where he?d grown up. ?Possibly the reason for Andy?s success was not having time to invent [anything],? he wrote in 1965. ?The background and the environment are exact, the characters ordinary, the situations commonplace.?

Smythe is dealing with themes that the mainstream media ? television and films in Britain ? aren?t going to deal with till the sixties, maybe five, ten years later,?

mass audience. John Osborne?s Look Back in Anger, which ushered in the Angry Young Men?s revolution in British culture, had its first performance only 15 months before Andy?s debut, and John Braine?s 1957 novel Room At The Top was published in the same year. The first cinema film to venture into this area - an adaption of Osborne?s play - was not released until 1959. Most timid of all was television, where the gritty-for-its-day soap opera Coronation Street did not debut until December 1960, and Ken Loach?s Cathy Come Home had to wait until 1966.

I consider Andy Capp to be among the world?s best-designed cartoon characters,? Mahoney says. ?Reg was a brilliant designer, and could reduce an object to pure simplicity. ?The strip appealed to me most when he started eliminating everything but the bare essentials. The artwork was clean and simple, and I try to keep this style in my own drawing.?

He brought exactly the same approach to drawing Andy?s world, using just four ruled lines to create a bar for him to prop up, and a mere three to indicate we?re now in Flo?s hallway.
