Beano has entertained children of all ages since 30th July 1938.
More than 80 years later, our unforgettable characters remain as popular as ever. Dennis STILL menaces, Minnie STILL minxes and Roger STILL dodges. That’s why everyone we know, STILL loves Beano.
Beano is a humour-based weekly strip comic aimed primarily at kids aged 7-11 (with an even split between boys and girls). Our readers are cheeky, mischievous, energetic and fun-loving; a lot like Dennis himself.
Beano guarantees funny reading for anyone looking to enjoy a great laugh. We achieve this through a combination of our famous comic strips and fun features, which have cross generational and cross gender appeal. Everyone enjoys a laugh and a joke – Beano comic delivers every week of the year.
The Beano Annual continues to be a favourite, securing #1 spot as bestselling annual in the UK 10 out of the last 11 years and Emmy-nominated animation series, Dennis and Gnasher Unleashed became CBBC’s highest-rated animation upon its launch in 2017.
