Mr Meecher, the Uncool Teacher is a strip in The Dandy written and drawn by Wilbur Dawbarn, which made its debut in Issue 3516. Meecher's catchphrase is 'You can call me Trevor', but one of the running jokes is no-one ever does. He's always referred to as 'Sir' or 'Meech' by his class "mates", and 'Trevelyan' by his mother. He tries to be 'down with da kids', but always makes himself look more of an uncool fool by doing so. The strip ended its first series in Issue 3525 ending up with Meecher being abducted by aliens.

Mr Meecher featured in a readers' poll in February 2011 allowing the readers to decide which characters would get the axe and which would continue. Overall Mr Meecher came fourth getting beaten only by Harry Hill, Desperate Dan and Pre-Skool Prime Minister. His second run began in July 2011 and ended in July 2012 with 46 strips.

A third series began in issue 3598 (15th September 2012) as a three-panel strip. It survived in this format until the final issue (3610).
