I loved the Bash Street Kids. Plug was my favourite, and not forgetting Smiffy, lol great memories of comics as a kid. Mind you I was a tom boy, but have to admit I did buy Jackie, just for the wow great posters for my bedroom wall of Marc Bolan, my Grandma used to ban me from putting drawing pins in her wallpaper, 9woodchip, of course), lol. Come on share your favorites.

Before I discovered Jackie and FAB 208 (Big David Cassidy fan - loved all the posters in both) I used to get Bunty and Judy, Diana etc. Still got all my old Annuals too.

I didn't really have comics when i was growing up but my mum used to by me Just Seventeen and Smash Hits every week..

I used to avidly memorise the song lyrics to the Top 40 every sunday whilst taping it too..(obviously i wouldn't even contemplate such an illegal act nowadays!!!)

In addition, my mum used to help out at our school and also our church so whenever she used to spot a Jackie Annual at any of the organised fete's/fair's she buy it for me and i was transported into a whole different world of teenage angst..

I also got to know how to blend pink and blue eyeshadow at a very early age thanks to my Jackie Annual 1978...Before i should even contemplate wearing it!!!

the Mekon - now there was a villain; and his arch rival Dan Dare

as for posters - well the one of the tennis player from behind hitching up her skirt to adjust her knickers springs to mind (fuunily enough) as do Bridgit Bardot in 20,000BC and a naked Jane Fonda poster (now where did that one go?). Halcyon days - the sun always shone, summer holidays were endless and it always snowed at Christmas

Lol, no you're not going mad, it's great to reminisce, I loved Marc Bolan for the very same reason, his gorgeous eyes and dark locks, lol. It was such a shame that he died so young in a tragic accident. Yes I loved to collect the badges, I was also a member of the Tufty club.

Lol, btw hope you had an enjoyable Birthday Owena, only just noticed.

Does anyone remember the 2 owls (I think they were) and there was an Aunty Jean!. I cannot remember that being the Tufty Club lost, but then it was 20 or so years ago, haha. It's bugging me now trying to remember.

Thanks for the birthday wishes, yes I had a very nice day.

I used to love David Essex until i was taken to see him on stage - he's so short - I fell out of love with him that day.

As for comics, i used to have Bunty delivered to my house every week and loved cutting out the paer dolly's and clothes on the back.
Does anyone remember Mick and Mont Morentsy (cant spell it) slap stick guys who always had a bucket of wallpaper paste and a ladder. I loved Mr Pastry too.
And, somewhere I still have a few Robertson Golly badges - how much do you think they are worth now. Molly

God I,d forgotten all about Jackie magazine!
It was like a bible to us teenage girls full of angst.

I remember winning some sort of quiz on Anglia TV and getting a record voucher.
One of the singles I bought was "Little Things" by Dave Berry.
I thought be was the business, all mean and moody :)

How are you today Soo, hope your bites are healing now. You've got me humming Little Things in my head now, lol. Oh our teen years were the best era, don't you agree. I'm still banging about in my head who had Aunty Jean in one of the kids clubs, aaggghhhh it's doing my head in now. I've even googled and got nowhere with it.

:help:

OOHH I still have some of them too. I did have a full set of the Golly pottery figures too, but my mum gave them to my eldest when he was little, and he broke them (little darling!!) They were worth around a £100 then too!!!

There was a programme on the radio recently and I was half listening, as you do, and it was two characters and Aunty Jean was part of this club, I'm sure they were owls. Thanks for helping me with this.
