HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEANO

Radio Scotland has described the collaboration between The McManus and Beano Studios as ‘the best example of a successful partnership since Dennis got together with Gnasher’!

WHEN AN 80th birthday is approaching there’s usually some signs of the protagonist slowing down. Not so with Beano – 80 years young this month and looking as fresh and relevant as ever! The celebrations for DC Thomson’s comic creation reaching this milestone have even seen another famous Dundee institution, the city’s iconic McManus Galleries, being taken over and renamed by Beano’s colourful characters in an exhibition entitled Bash Street’s Back at The McMenace!

The exhibition is officially described as being a ‘fun and rebellious look at Beano at 80’. It takes in the history of DC Thomson as well as the story of printing and the birth of The Beano, with a special focus on the hilarious Bash Street Kids and their characteristic slapstick humour. Artists and writers who contributed to, and influenced the look and content of, Beano throughout the years also feature, alongside a display of how a comic is put together. The exhibition also includes an eclectic mix of Beano merchandise that has hit the shelves over the past 80 years. Radio Scotland has described the collaboration between The McManus and Beano Studios as ‘the best example of a successful partnership since Dennis got together with Gnasher’!
