Over the years, The Beano has changed to match the times, but
the aim's remained the same - to bring laughs, thrills, action, and
fun to children of all ages. Now, the Retro Beano section of the
website gives you your chance to find out fun facts, chuckle at
classic gags, and meet some favourite funny folk from throughout
The Beano's long and laugh-packed history!
Bit by bit, we'll be adding info on the stories and strips that
have entertained readers since 1938. We want you to think of this
section as the equivalent of an online Beano fanzine - one where
your views, comments, memories of classic stories and characters,
criticisms, and corrections (after all, there are over 7 decades
worth of Beano comics to go through, so mistakes might creep in)
are all welcome!
Working together, we aim to make it a great place to find out
about the comic's history. But, more importantly, because it's The
Beano, we aim to make it fun!
