Saturday Specials

Saturday special trail

Following these trails during the preceding week, the first Beau Peep 'Saturday Special' strip was published in the Star on Saturday 29th August 1981.

Saturday special

It consisted of 3-bars and was ‘standalone’ (i.e. it was a completely separate strip that did not follow on from the Monday to Friday story-line). These 3-bar specials appeared every Saturday (and most can be seen in the ‘Beau Peep Colour Collection’ book).

From Saturday 21st August 1982, these specials then comprised of only 2-bars, and these ran up to February 1984.

After a two-year break, a shorter run of 2-bar strips were published in the Star between April and August 1986.
