The Bash Street Kids are one of The Beano's most popular strips. There's somebody there for everybody to relate to, from the tall gangly one Plug, to the facially challenged one Spotty, the leader of the gang Danny and the tomboy Toots. And for the record, as well as those three, the regular characters are: Fatty (since 2021 Freddy), Erbert, Sydney, Smiffy, Wlfred and Cuthbert. And, of course, Teacher. The Bash Street Kids strip was introduced in 1954, drawn by Leo Baxendale. Since 1961, David Sutherland has drawn about 2,100 strips.
