I know a couple of DCs editors met Bob Monkhouse around the time of his national service on one of their regular trips to meet artists - I read the notes of their trip, which were really fascinating. A little time capsule of 40s Britain.

Watched the programme last night called 'The unforgettable... Bob Monkhouse' (next week it'll be someone different). In it it had his daughter once again confirm that Bob drew for The Beano. So, I think it's very likely that he did.

Finding absolute proof on this would take a bit of in-house research, however.


Edit: Unless the Monkhouse Estate has records of it.
