    Not sure if Amos is referring to comic about shows on TV . I found an image of the TV Comic annual [see below] which seems to show cartoon stars from TV shows of the day

    I temember having a comic in the mid 60's that was dedicated to Lady Penelope from Thunderbirds. I can't recall the name of the comic but I remember having a free ring with her insignia - the letter P stamped in pink on the front of it! I think I also had a toy version of her pink Rolls Royce! Happy Days.

    During football season, the Geography class got to become VERY FAMILIAR with the geography of the gridiron (football field) every Friday. The fact that we got to watch films of the upcoming opposing team had NOTHING to do with the fact that the head football coach also happened to be our geography teacher. Ha, ha ha!!!!

    Oh well your geography lessons weren't so boring if they were interspersed with teenage angst! As the teacher said - far more interesting tham boring gepgraphy. One of you could have ended up as an agony aunt!

    Maggie you will see from my previous post my Geography teacher[male] insisted on reading through the Dear Cathy and Claire problem page from Jackie every lesson instead of , in his words , the boring Geography syllabus . Amazingly I and my fellow students all passed A Level Geography despite having to endure those teenage angst problem letters in all their graphic detail for several terms .

    What about the girls' comics? I avidly read Bunty and Judy and in my teens all the girls loved Jackie which was the basis for a recent musical.

    The NME cane latet when we were older and 'cool'!

    For me it was the Beano, Topper, Whizzer and Chips and a few issues of Cheeky Weekly before music took over and it was NME, Sounds, Record Mirror, Melody Maker and the punk fanzines.;)

    Whizzer1969.jpg WHIZZER and CHIPS was a fairly short lived 2 in 1 comic printed around the late 60s and early 90s. CHIPS was a pull out centre . Whizzer had already amalgamated KNOCKOUT.:confused:
