    Default Dennis the Menace Fan Club

    I joined the 'Dennis the Menace Fan Club' and 'The Gnasher Fang Club' in the seventies. It was great - you got a membership card with your photo on, a bit like a passport and two badges - the Gnasher one had fur all round the outside.

    I understand that this became 'The Beano Club' in 1988 (and consequently lost all crediblitiy).

    I have my old membership card somewhere, I will have a look for it and if I find it I will scan it and post it on here. It's a laugh to see my kiddie face with the big zit on my chin, lol.

    Anybody else join this? If you still have your cards, would love to see them. Thanks.

    I collected Beano comics from 1993 to 1998, sadly I no longer have them. I used to be with the Beano Club in 1998, what I remember and still have are a small bag and a poster. I also remember the Dennis the Menace Fan Club with the Dennis and Gnasher badges.

    I wanted to, but never got round to doing so, mainly because it meant cutting up a Beano for the application form.

    I read the Beano from 1984 to 1992 (& was given some even older ones) & the price for joining was alway 45p. Did it ever go up?

    I joined the Dennis the Menace and Desperate Dan Fan Clubs around 1993 and here is what I remember getting -

    Dennis the Menace - Black wallet containing furry Gnasher badge, red Dennis badge and a membership card and rules list. I seem to remember having to stick your own photo onto the card though.

    Desperate Dan - Black wallett, plastic Desperate Dan badge and a circular tin badge with a cow pie on it, membership card and club rules.

    Getting these membership goodies through the post was so exciting as a kid, are both of these clubs still going?

    This is my Dennis the Menace Fan Club stuff, plus a couple of extra badges. I think I joined in about 1993.


    The blue badge says "He Who Menaces Wins" and the second Gnasher badge was given away with the Beano a few years ago.

    Thanks for posting the pics of your stuff - really cool to see them again.

    Sadly, I couldn't find mine , but I reckon my mam might have them stashed away in her bungalow somewhere.

    I joined the fan club and got the wallet and badges, and I have an impression of one of them burned into my palm after a scrap with Indiana Jones.
    We all stand together...bom bom!
