Rupert and the Lucky Man finished on Sunday 2nd June after 26 episodes and the “Lucky Man” was a paper fold figure, giving Alfred Bestall the chance to incorporate origami into the story.

Rupert also encounters Rastus, Peter and the Pedlar, so a number of old occasional chums are featured in the story.
