Dennis and Gnasher build their very own kelpies
Dennis and Gnasher have added their own giant sculptures next to The Kelpies in a special edition comic strip.
The original cartoon was made as a gift for the structures’ sculptor, Andy Scott, after a visit to the site near Falkirk with famous Beano artist David Sutherland.
Now an image of the 30-metre (98ft) horse-heads with the characters next to them has been printed on a number of items to coincide with the 67th anniversary of Dennis’ first appearance.
Mr Scott said: “Dennis and Gnasher have brought smiles to the faces of generations of youngsters, myself included when I was a boy, and it’s a real pleasure to see their unique sense of mischief so skillfully brought to life with The Kelpies.”
The sculptures are found near Grangemounth in the Falkrik Council area and are the largest public artworks in the UK.
Mr Sutherland, one of Beano’s most famous and beloved artists, has been drawing The Bash Street Kids and Dennis the Menace for more than 55 years.
He said: “I have long been an admirer of Andy’s work.”
