KID'S KLASSIC KOMIC (ANNUAL) KOVERS - THE BEANO BOOK 1967...

Ah, The BEANO BOOK 1967 (released in '66).  To those
people of that 'certain age' I'm always referring to, this cover will
usher them straight back to the 1960s faster then you just read this
intro.  The '60s - the era of The BEATLES, BOND, BATMAN -
and The Beano.  The comic was never better than it was then - al-
though if you read it in the '50s perhaps you'd disagree.  No mat-
ter.  I'm the boss around here and I overrule you, so there!  (Ha!
The unlimited power that comes from having a blog.)

Brilliant kid. As you say,whoosh,and I'm back in 1967 with the very same annual. The cover sends nostalgic shivers down my spine.

Brilliant, innit? I remember reading General Jumbo in The Beano back around 1963 and detaching (temporarily) the leather lace-up part from a skate (the part you stuck your foot in) as an armband. Stick a bit of wire into one of the eyelets and hey, presto - a General Jumbo control unit. Happy days, Moony.
