Rupert and Rusty story commenced in the Daily Express on Good Friday (14th April), and is a reprint of Bestall story B174 which originally appeared in black and white in the Daily Express in 1957.
It was later reprinted in colour in the 1965 Rupert Annual from where this version is taken. A further reprinting in the daily paper occurred in 2011.
A visit from the postman brings an invite for Rupert to go on holiday though his Mummy teases him about with whom and where.
Rupert and the Winkybickies story finished happily with Rupert managing to successfully complete his cereal card collection thanks to Pauline, one of the Guides.
This was the last original story written and drawn by Alfred Bestall for the Daily Express.
