Broons, The - 2017 Annual
The Broons and Oor Wullie are cartoon strips that appear every week in the Sunday Post newspaper. Both strips have achieved legendary status and in 2016 they celebrate their 80th anniversary!
In the Sunday Post’s The Broons strip, the family is billed as being ‘the happy family that makes every family happy’ and this phrase sums them up perfectly. Though they are ten in number, the family enjoys staying together in the small tenement flat of 10 Glebe Street, Auchentogle.
The marvellous artwork and well observed storylines means that everyone recognises a little of themselves in these classic tales. The strips often feature celebrity appearances and the famous faces that appear in The Broons or Oor Wullie see it as a great honour.
