Three TV shows (among many) I remember from my childhood are CIRCUS BOY, WHIRLYBIRDS, and The ADVENTURES Of ROBIN HOOD. Circus Boy was CORKY, played by MICKY BRADDOCK, who later metamorphosed into MICKY DOLENZ of The MONKEES and METAL MICKEY fame (as a producer and director in the latter's case). Whirlybirds starred, er... helicoptors, and Robin Hood starred RICHARD (Brylcreem Boy) GREENE, and had a rousing theme tune that everyone of a certain age remembers. Forget ERROL FLYNN, Richard Greene, to me, was the real Robin Hood.
I don't have a Whirlybirds Annual yet, but I'll get one eventually. (And I quite fancy having a Z-CARS Annual too.) Until I do, here are a few pictures from the other two, along with the covers, to whet your appetite for picture-strip tie-ins to old TV shows. I particularly like the Robin Hood ones, how about you?
|As well as b&w drawings, there are also 'grey tone' illustrations|
in the book, which I suspect were originally produced in colour
|Interestingly, although this illustration is signed by A. POLLACK, the|
book credits the illustrations to JOHN POLLACK on the adjoining page
