Re: Beano expansion

Dc Thomson should publish list of characters' real names. I'd like to know Ginger's real name as well as Pop, Dick and Harry's.

Re: Help please!

Creepy or Eerie had a UK version for a short while. But they wouldn't be sci-fi.

Re: Beano expansion

I did consider that when I made my post. I don't remember the characters having real names until well into this century.

The editor of the Beano was on Paul Ross's talk radio show between 4.30 and 4.50 this morning. Talking about Dennis's 70th anniversary. Paul Ross admitted to naming his daughter Hermione after Minnie the Minx.

This coming Saturday's Daily Mail Weekend magazine has an interesting cover. Who's the artist?

Re: British comics reprinted in Europe

Perhaps it's a Kelpie strip from an annual as the regular artists often didn't draw the annual versions of strips.

Re: Comics on TV

One of my guilty pleasures is watching Wheel of Fortune on Challenge TV. This morning the bloke who presents the prizes was sitting in an armchair reading the Beano. A 1988 episode.

Re: Talking Pictures TV

I enjoyed last night's final Hazell. Not only was it filmed here in Rotherhithe but Hazell bought his mate, hiding out from the police, some jellied eels and double pie and mash. Hazell hired a car and I recognised the car mart as the one just a few yards up the road from me.
