Fatty from the Bash Street Kids has been renamed Freddy.

And only one week later, more changes - Mandi (previously used for PSA type stories) and Harsha (from Har-Har's Joke Shop) have joined Class 2B, which solves two problems - Toots is no longer the only girl, and both new characters are ethnic minorities (Indian/Pakistani).

Good to see the Bash Street Kids changing. I always did think they needed more kids or less kids or just some changes. It was growing a bit stale last time I read it. It was good when they got rid of Teacher's anachronistic mortar board.

I wonder how long they'll last though. Wayne's in pain was the last new Bash Street Kid (14 years ago) and he didnt last long.

I apologise for linking to the Daily Mail but because of the recent changes to the Bash Street Kids, they've parodied them as the Woke Street Kids....
