Take a peek inside this 1970’s annual, filled with classic comic strips and adventure stories!
1972 Beano Annual
Back when Charley was teaching kids to safely cross roads, Biffo was helping too! Some of the characters’ outfits don’t quite match the colours they wear today – can you spot them?
Blue? or Red?
This was the first annual with a decimal price tag – 144 pages of laughs for only 50p! A Beano bargain!
The Bash Street Cats
These rivals to the Bash Street Pups make a very rare appearance here, and were never seen again!
It wasn’t just Beano that got an annual…
Dennis the Menace got his own annual in 1956, which was published every two years until 1978. It was then published annually from the 1987 to 2011!
