The Gambols is a Britishmarker comic strip created by Barry Appleby in 1950 which was originally published in the Daily Express and is now seen in the Mail on Sunday.

The two central characters are George and Gaye Gambol, a happily married, suburban, middle class couple. George is the main breadwinner while Gaye is primarily a homemaker but she does occasionally take on part-time office jobs.

The stories revolve around the Gambols everyday life, in particular Gaye's passion for shopping and George's attempts at home improvements. The couple are childless, but at least once a year, they have their niece and nephew, Flivver and Miggy, stay with them.

Most of the Gambols strips were three or four panels long, however the Sunday Express published longer strips. Some of these strips also appeared in colour.

From the 1960s, Appleby's wife Dobs (Doris) was credited alongside him. After Dobs' death in 1985, Appleby continued with the strip on his own until his own death in 1996. The strip was then taken over by Roger Mahoney until the strip moved from the Daily Express to the Mail on Sunday in 1999 [387784].
