Scotlands Oor Wullie And The Broons

4y ago


The Broons and Oor Wullie, Scotland's favourite comic stars, first appeared in the newly created Fun Section in The Sunday Post on March 8th, 1936. The Broons brought a wry slice of family life with a close-knit clan, all of whom, from the wise-beyond-her-years Bairn to eternally young-at-heart Granpaw, were instantly recognisable as the kind of people you might meet in any street in any Scottish city. While Oor Wullie was a young rascal who would become a hero to children and brought back warm childhood memories for adults with his cheeky sense of fun and lively adventures in his own wee town. Both stories were an instant hit!
