Phone-a-Fiend

Phone-a-Fiend was a comic strip in the UK comic The Beano. It only appeared in one issue, that being issue 3103, dated 5 January 2002.

The strip was about a fictional organisation of the same name, comprising several different monsters that were hired to scare troublemakers into changing their ways. It comprised Frankenstein's Monster and Dracula-like characters, a werewolf, a severed head, a yeti and a 'skeleparrot', which, as the name implied, was the skeleton of a parrot. It ran alongside Space Kidette and Freddie Fear as candidates to be voted into the comic by readers, but Freddie Fear eventually won.

The title was probably derived from 'Phone-A-Friend', a device used in the highly popular UK game show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.
