Callimero

MIDDLING-TO-MYOPIC CARTOON of curious origin starring a frustrated black chicken/duck who wore a piece of eggshell on its head. The tagline of every episode was “It’s an injustice, it is,” said in a high whiny voice. Dreadful.

    I remember someone gave me a comic book with this character in many years ago.

    Some of the stories in it were quite funny. Normally Calimero was asked to do an odd job for someone & managed to make a complete mess of it, usually due to reasons beyond his control or some strange misunderstanding.

    My Mum binned it eventually because it was held together with tape.
