Lovely web site Tolworthy. :)

Will have a look when I get a chance for some non-shown covers. I do have some badtime bedtimes (but not all) - nice to see them listed so clearly. :)


Thanks! Much of it is due to the generosity of the fine folks at this forum (and a couple of other people). I hope I can soon add your name to the list of credits :)

Thanks to Muffy, the Badtime Bedtime site has reached the half way point! 25 of the 50 badtime books now have scans of the first page on the site. Plus there's a bonus "obviously inspired by badtime books" scan.

Time is running out for anyone who wants to ensure their immortality by supplying one of the few missing scans! (Well it's worth a try :)

Another update: thanks to scans generously donated by visitors, the badtime bedtime site now has over three quarters of all badtime books ever made (mostly just front covers for copyright reasons, but I did sneak in eight complete stories). If anyone feels like helping out by scanning a missing cover...?

Hey, it even has the Alladin/Star wars story i remember from my youth (well, somebody else's youth, it was a good 12 years old or so when i got it XD), in full too! Though one page appears to have been replaced by an Excel graph showing sales of the Fantastic Four XD

Whoops! Just fixing that now. I've also added a lot more pages that you can only find if you hunt for them. I don't want to blatantly ignore copyright, so there is only a limited number of complete stories on the site. But if you want more complete stories, a little detective work will definitely be rewarded. I will say no more than that. :)

Only ten more comics to find! Thanks to the continued generosity of visitors to the site, it now has scans of the front page of every badtime book ever published, except for eleven (I thought it was ten, but one annual has two stories):

1. Issue 18: Star Truck
2. Issue 25: The Underwater World of Jacques Custard
3. Issue 28: William the Conk (reprinted in the 1982 annual)
4. Issue 30: Dick Twittington
5. Issue 47: Cooljock
6. Issue 61: The Hound of the Backstreet-villa
7. 1977 MF annual: Ye Badtime Bedtime Nursery Rhymes
8. 1978 MF annual: Starchy and Butch: drawn by Mike Brown.
8a. 1978 MF annual again: Traffic Island (this one I remember as my all-time favourite as a kid)
9. 1979 MF annual: Boggles
10. 1983 MF annual: One Billion Years B.C. (Before Comics)

I'm not looking for the complete stories (though that would be especially nice!) but just for a scan of the first page. If anyone is feeling generous...
