Bash Street guest star

Here's a preview of part of my next Pup Parade strip. One of the things I like about doing this strip, apart from enjoying drawing the Pups, is that I get a chance to include some of the iconic Bash Street Kids sometimes too. Danny in this one for example. 

See the full story in Beano No.4139, on sale Wednesday 8th June!

Now that brings an interesting question.

With the recent influx of new pupils of class IIb, may we end up seeing additions to the core cast of pets to the pup parade cast?

Lew Stringer said...

I'm afraid not. Pup Parade ends in July, sadly.

Also, it'd be difficult to feature all 15 dogs in a strip. I can't predict what the Beano will do but my opinion would be to just say that not all kids have dogs.

Bruce Laing said...

Fair enough.

I assume 15 was a typo, and you meant 12. But, of course, Cuthbert never had a dog added to the Pup Parade, and he's been around since the 1970s. So it's not surprising that Harsha and Mandi won't be getting dogs either.

Nope, there are now 15 Bash Street Kids. 16 if we include Cuthbert. See Wednesday's Beano.

Oh that's sad news. I've enjoyed seeing Pup parade back. Will they be ending all the mini-strips? I see they've added them to Bash st school. Maybe they'll get you to work on another strip. Would love to see Ivy the Terrible and Biffo back in the weekly.

I don't know what's happening to the other strips, sorry. No, they haven't offered me any replacement work so it's not looking good I'm afraid.

Thanks Peter. Nothing anytime soon unfortunately. A very depressing time.
