Favourite Characters in The Beano


#1

@foppyish asked where my name came from. It is a play on Billy Whizz from The Beano.

Incidentally, my favourite strip was Crazy for Daisy. Here’s a chance for some of you to show your age.


#2

Was a big Numbskulls fan personally.


#3

I used to like Rodger the dodger. But they are all little shits in retrospect


#4

hello there willy jizz


#5

It’s odd how that essentially got made into a massive Pixar film


#6

used to fancy minnie the minx
bash street kids was definitely the best though


#7

He was a bit of a wily cunt in hindsight, you have to feel for the parents


#8

Always used to read Dennis The Menace first followed by Bash Street Kids…


#9

rich uncle skeleton


#10

alaways liked roger the dodger


#11

Roger the Dodger

Also, Beano>Dandy


#12

Bash Street Kids and Rodger.


#13

didn’t know anyone who actually read the dandy when i was a kid, reckon it was bought entirely by middle aged nerds


#14

I used to read Buster more than the Beano though.

Faceache was my favourite character.

If I was ill, I would get the Dandy as well as the Beano, but it paled in significance really. Desperate Dan was OK I suppose. You had to suspend your disbelief a bit when he ate those massive pies, whereas the Beano was gritty realism, all misbehaving kids and talking animals


#16

Actually the animals didn’t talk, did they


#17

There was a kid called Joe King at my school, ah the bants we had


#18

Bash Street Kids/Softy Walter


#19

Calamity James


#20

if you dont say roger the dodger you are cut off
