Boyhood days made happy by both The Beano and Dandy
The article in the August edition on the Beano’s 80th anniversary brought back many happy boyhood memories.
The Beano was always my favourite comic but I really had the best of both worlds because my friend, who lived opposite, always had the Dandy and after a few days we would swap.
The issues I always looked forward to most were the Christmas issues when the titles of both would be pictured with snow on the top.
When they came out it really felt that Christmas was near. My parent’s encouraged me to read (what I think was called) “The Children’s Newspaper” but this was a much more serious publication, and never had snow on its Christmas edition, so for me it never really took off!
