(2 January 1993)
|Regular characters||Betty, The Yeti|
Sick of the cold weather and lack of company, a talking yeti flees the Himalaya by grabbing onto the wheel of a passing aeroplane, landing in the white cliffs of Dover. While there, he meets a young girl called Betty, who befriends the yeti and adopts it as her pet. The subsequent strips followed the adventures of the yeti as he tried to adjust to city life.
Appearing in the comic throughout the year, the strip last appeared in issue 2698, dated 2 April 1994.
However, the strip appeared in the 1995 Beano Annual.
The strip was revived in issue 3784, dated 16 May 2015, now retitled Betty and the Yeti. This half-page version is drawn by Steve Beckett, and shows the Yeti befriending Betty over a comic at a campsite. He then stows away in the luggage on the car roof as Betty and her father drive back to Beanotown. The Yeti himself looks identical to Robert Nixon's version, but Betty and her family have been completely redesigned.
