The Beano  |  1st April 2017  

Who is the TOP April Fool's Prankster?

Did you know, The Beano is the longest running British children’s comic magazine? Published by DC Thomson, the comic first appeared on 30th July 1938, and has stolen the hearts of all ages ever since! So, where did the name ‘Beano’ come from? The name ‘Beano’ is an English word that literally translates to ‘a grand old time’ or ‘a bean feast’ (an annual feast for workmen in the UK during the 19th century, courtesy of their bosses).

The Beano is also one of the best selling comics in British popular culture. Its famous characters include Dennis the Menace, Minnie the Minx, Billy Whizz and much much more.
