The Broons Annual No 1 - 1939 Annual - Back of Outer Sleeve

The BROONS first appeared on 8th March 1936 in the new 'Fun Section' of Scotland's most popular Sunday newspaper - The Sunday Post. No one at the time could have foreseen how phenomenally successful this set of characters were to become. They were in fact, destined to become household names.

Originally brought to life by the combined talents of D.C. Thomson Managing Editor Robert D. Low and illustrator Dudley D. Watkins, the BROONS have appeared every week in The Sunday Post for a continuous 70 years - as testiment to their enduring popularity.

In November 1939, three years after Maw, Paw, Grandpaw, Hen, Joe, Maggie, Daphne, Horace, the Twins and the Bairn made their entry into Scottish folklore, the first BROONS Annual was published. It has appeared every two years since (apart from the war years of 1943-46) alternating with that other legendary Scottish icon, OOR Wullie.

Make time to get comfortable in a nice relaxing armchair, open this superb facsimile reproduction and marvel at the comic genius that is The BROONS - Scotland's First Family!

"Sunday morn's the very best
Time to catch Daph an' the rest
An' where tae find this happy host?
The pages o' The Sunday Post!"

David Donaldson
The Broons Managing Editor 2006
