Leo Baxendale on the Bash Street Kids

July 1, 2009 in Comment

In an article for the Times, legendary Beano cartoonist Leo Baxendale recalls how in the space of seven months he created the classic strips Little Plum, Minnie the Minx and, most famously, the Bash Street Kids – and that a lot of the inspiration for the strips came from a regular game of office keepie-uppie.
