1980 Beano Annual

The 1980 annual was the first time Biffo the Bear did not appear on the cover, with Dennis and the Bash Street Kids taking over the playing field.

Double Sided Menace Mask

In an effort to minimise the damage caused by cutting out Beano activities, these back-to-back masks were printed on either side of the same page.

  • Double Sided Menace Mask? - Beano Book 1980 Annual
  • Double Sided Walter Mask? - Beano Book 1980 Annual

Thousands were wearing these badges!

Seriously - the Dennis the Menace Fan Club was in full swing in the 80's, heralded on T-shirts, posters, and - most importantly - badges.


The Bash Street Kids Annual debuted in1980, and continued to appear every year until 2010 - 30 years and still Class 2B couldn't graduate!
