Bash Street for Dundee?

Published On November 5, 2012 | By Joe Gordon | Comics

Dundee council is considering – and seems likely minded to agree to – a proposal from the mighty Dundonian publishers of the Beano and many others, DC Thomson, that a currently un-named street in the city be dubbed Bash Street, as part of plans to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Beano planned for next year. It would be rather nice to have a real Bash Street in the city, marking the wonderful corruption of young minds begun by the one and only Leo Baxendale decades ago with his delightful school antics that have gone on to entertain generations of school kids with their brand of madcap and irreverent, inventive fun.
