It is unlikely that any cartoon character has managed to say so much in the confines of a standard strip as Miss Rouge. She joins the typing pool in May 1964 and experiences the usual sexist appraisal of those less enlightened times as Bristow gives her the once-over in strip 1033 .
Bristow's mission is to torment and terrorise all typists. In Rouge he nearly meets his match but somehow under the onslaught of words he manages to keep his end up. Here's a good example - strip 1259 but in the end there is only way to shut her up - strip 1470
Rouge's mission, like all typists desperate to escape from the pool, is to seek out and marry the most eligible man she can find. Unlike her friend, the hapless Miss Sunman, she succeeds, and Rouge gets her hooks into Atkins of Accounts. She explains how to Bristow in strip 2174 .
Soon afterwards the marriage is blessed with a baby boy, naturally named Robin after the son of the firm's founder. Mrs. Atkins then returns to work in the typing pool but the relationship with her husband becomes a tad strained. Poor old Atkins - if he puts a foot wrong he has to face the awful consequences.
