Re: Comics on TV

I didn't say the actor had no musical ability :)

Re: Comics on TV

Excellent work again, Digi.

Steve - the actor with the guitar was required to play a character with aspirations to be a singer despite having no musical ability, so his renditions were deliberately appalling and extremely annoying.

Re: Comics on TV

From Children's Film Foundation feature Supersonic Saucer (1956 or 1958 depending on which source you choose to believe - there's no year shown in the credits)... http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll33/Galaxus/saucer1_zpsmye8kb2j.png http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll33/Galaxus/saucer2_zpslbqs3c...

Re: Comics on TV

Good suggestions, Digi. I agree with Jakob that 2099 seems to most closely match the cover shown in the screen grabs.

Re: Comics on TV

Was watching Top Of The Pops 1982 last Thursday: The first act was The Piranhas featuring Boring Bob Grover doing "Zambesi" - Bob was in a Dennis the Menace style jersey with a rolled up copy of the Beano in his pocket. That edition is getting repeated at 10:30 on BBC4 tonight. Thanks for the info ...

Re: Comics on TV

From British film All Neat In Black Stockings (1968). In one scene we see the contents of a scrapbook belonging to an artist. Into one of the pages has been pasted part of the cover of the same year's SMASH! POW! It's FANTASTIC SUMMER SPECIAL . http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll33/Galaxus/anibs1_...

Chips' Comic

This is an interesting article, documenting an unusual spin on the concept of the 'TV tie-in comic'. Apparently Chips' Comic was a TV programme for young children in which the characters were seen 'preparing' issues of the titular magazine that really were available to buy. Never heard of it myself.

Re: Comics on TV

From Poor Cow (1967). In this scene Joy (Carol White) asks Dave (Terence Stamp) if she can read one of his comics. He hands over what he tells her is a copy of 'Lewis Lane featuring Superman's girlfiend', so Dave is clearly no comics aficionado. I recorded the film when it was shown on the Talking P...

Re: Comics on TV

Thanks Rab - the enticing prospect of an appearance by the fragrant Carol has strengthened my resolve to reach the final Please Sir! disc (yes, my box set is the same as yours).

Re: Comics on TV

I watched a few of the early series of Grange Hill on Youtube a couple of years ago and thought they were still good, but I bailed out before the rot set in. I downloaded the Grange Hill spinoff Tucker's Luck a while back but haven't got round to watching it yet.
