Character Feature: Ginger

Everyone’s favourite Ginger appeared first in the first Beezer on the 21 January 1956. Originally drawn by Dudley D.Watkins, Ginger first started as the Beezer’s cover star, until 1961 when Pop, Dick and Harry took the cover, he then got it back in 1964. After Dudley D. Watkins’ death, Bob McGrath drew Ginger until 1985. Bob McGrath drew The Three Bears for the Beano as well. After 1985 he was drawn by Jimmy Glenn who drew Ginger until the Beezer merged with the Topper.
