Help please - info about "Out with Mummy" from Teddy Bear?

I can't seem to find anything about this beautifully-drawn series about a nuclear family which appeared in Teddy Bear and in two(?) "annual" books of its own. Of course, the social changes over the last forty years make it something of an interesting curiosity nowadays. Everyone is white, and health...

Re: Asterix

This just caught my eye. Wonder what the new books will be like? The Dutch academics Royen and van der Vegt have written two scholarly books (available in German) about Asterix - seriously investigating whether the Britons really spoke like "English Policemen"(!") I think they missed the point... ht...

Well done for the site!

I'm looking at a Rainbow Annual showing Tiger Tim and the Bruin Boys in a pirate cave, wondering when it's from. It's a great accolade for the site that the words On the 20th April 2011* the website changed server provider. Unfortunately, the new provider did not support the Classic ASP language tha...

Re: Index of Hotspur/ Rover/ Champion annuals/books?

Can I correct an assumption you appear to be making here, PP. I am personally in no way responsible for or connected with any of the displays in the pictorial library section of the forum. If in the future you want to contribute any of the missing annual covers, you should first contact Al, the guy...

Re: Index of Hotspur/ Rover/ Champion annuals/books?

What a link - I was getting ready to look up "Adventure Land" boy in red shirt on desert island by signal fire and "Adventure Land" boy in red shirt with wolf in front of setting sun and the magic of the interrent tells me 1924 and 1925 by photo means! So much easier than the Lofts/Adley route! THA...

Re: Index of Hotspur/ Rover/ Champion annuals/books?

Have a look in the Annual/Book section that our mighty leader Al . has set up over the years. http://www.comicsuk.co.uk/Annuals/AnnualWhole.asp Thanks. I did do a search first but didn't find that. I've now catalogued 65 different Westermans but I'm not halfway through, which suggests most of the n...

Index of Hotspur/ Rover/ Champion annuals/books?

I am drawing up an index of which DC Thomson and AP "annuals" my dad has - Hotspur/ Wizard/ Rover and Champion / Adventure Land etc. I recall a 1970s index by Robert Adley and Bill Lofts describing the covers, as these books tend not to have a date. In these days of pretty photos I found this: http:...

Re: Dandy Relaunch - losing momentum?

I saw the Harry Hill "there's only one way to tell - FIGHT" line on the cover of the Dandy yesterday and picked one up from a sheaf at Tesco's, thinking it would be worth a look. I think it's great! I must admit I was busy and had missed about the relaunch, but I thought Harry Hill and Jeremy Clarks...

Re: Dan Dare - The Film??

NOOOO!

(a Dan Dare fan, yesterday).

All these films are utter rubbish. Do I take it there has been a comics remake remake since the famous (and IMHO unequalled) Berlardinelli version?

Wasn't there an OINK! version (Ham Dare?) with Pigby?

Judge Dreddio Capello!

Looking at this evening's England football international, it struck me that Fabio Capello must have a son of about ten, called Eustace and due to become better known as Judge Fargo (clone "father" of Dredd). Basically, put an upturned bucket on Fabio Capello's head and you have Judge Joe Dredd. Coul...

Re: New Dennis TV Series

As Dennis's world in the Beano becomes aligned with that on the telly, I note in Beano 3505 that the Colonel looks quite different (without checking, no hat - bigger moustache?) and so does Bea (big open eyes). The whole of page 5 is a "generating electricity from Bea's pump gas" gag. Do they have t...

Re: Beano monitoring

In BEANO 3505, there is a lovely story. The Bash Street Kids are visited by a normal-looking, grey-haired man introduced by Teacher as David Sutherland, an "artist". When the Kids say "you can't be an artist! - you don't look like an artist!" he duly dons beret and smock. He is wise to their jape of...
