The last Magic-Beano book, these annuals would revert to just the 'Beano' name the following year.
After 7 years of Magic-Beano, readers would have recognised Koko as Eggo's friend, rather than the mascot of the Magic comic. Koko the pup never appears in subsequent annuals or comics.
This is the final Annual adventure of Tricky Dicky Ant, having made appearances since 1940. Only a few pages in this annual were printed 'landscape' style, which allowed 9 frames and an extra-wide title.
The following year, Swanky Lanky Liz would get absorbed into Lord Snooty's gang, still appearing in the 'Lord Snooty and His Pals' strip, instead of her solo comic strips.
