Minnie the Minx
Minnie made her first appearance in 1953, making her the third longest running Beano character, after Dennis and Roger. Artist Leo Baxendale illustrated Minnie as well as the Bash Street Kids and The Three Bears, and worked on Beano for ten years.

Minnie appears in her iconic beret and stripey jumper, but has black dungarees that later disappeared. Beano also used to have text stories without pictures - you can see a couple here, to the left and below the strip.
