''The Beano'' is a long running [[BritishComics British children's comic]] that's been in circulation for almost 75 years, having entertained several generations of kids since 1938, making this one hell of a [[PrintLongRunners long runner]]. Published weekly, for over 70 years and with more than 3500 issues, it's famous for iconic strips such as ''ComicStrip/{{Dennis the Menace|UK}}'', ''[[DistaffCounterpart Minnie the Minx]]'' and ''[[WackyHomeroom The Bash Street Kids]]'', and is a huge influence in (and a reflection of) British culture. Other iconic strips include ''[[HighSchoolHustler Roger the Dodger]]'', ''[[SuperSpeed Billy Whizz]]'', ''[[FunnyAnimal Biffo the Bear]]'', ''[[FunnyAnimal Big Eggo]]'', ''[[RichKids Lord Snooty]]'', ''[[UsefulNotes/AssociationFootball Ball Boy]]'', ''[[SinkingShipScenario Jonah]]'', ''[[TheKidWithTheRemoteControl General Jumbo]]'', ''[[EnfantTerrible Ivy the Terrible]]'', ''[[InjunCountry Little Plum]]'', ''[[BornUnlucky Calamity]] [[CosmicPlaything James]]'' and ''[[BigEater The Three Bears]]''.

A number of spin-off comics have been released as well, including: The Beano Annual (which is released every Christmas and continues to sell 100,000+ every year); the monthly [=BeanoMAX=]; The Beano Summer Special, a yearly reprint Annual featuring content from both ComicBook/TheBeano and ''ComicBook/TheDandy''; Plug comic, a weekly comic which ran from 1977-1979 featuring as its main star one of ''The Bash Street Kids''; and the Beano Comic Libraries, which evolved into the Fun Size Beano. Other spinoffs include a few animated series (some of which were DirectToVideo) and video games.

The comic is easily the most well known British Humour Comic and is also the longest running comic of its genre. It has outlived numerous generations of competitor comics, such as ''ComicBook/WhizzerAndChips'', ''FilmFun'', ''Smash'' and ''[[ComicBook/{{Buster}} Buster]]'', and continues to introduce new characters and innovate.

Its readership peaked in 1950 before the introduction of its most iconic characters, and some consider it to have JumpedTheShark in the mid 60s when the artists LeoBaxendale and KenReid left to draw for Creator/DCThomson's (The Beano's publisher) rivals. However, the comic continued for long after these artists stopped drawing altogether, though the pair were a big influence on the comic.

In its long run it has [[ComicsMerger absorbed]] a number of characters from other comics such as ''[[MobileSuitHuman The Numskulls]]'' and ''[[TimeTravel Fred's Bed]]'' from ''ComicBook/TheBeezer'' and ''ComicStrip/{{Bananaman}}'' from ''Nutty'' and ''ComicBook/TheDandy''.

Two Beano home videos have been released, [[WesternAnimation/BeanoVideo the first]] in 1993 and a follow-up, ''[[WesternAnimation/BeanoVideostars Beano Videostars]]'' in 1994. Also, an interactive DVD in 2006, which focuses on the characters' attempts to save Bash Street School from closure after TV stars Mr Cheekychops and Sir Stinksalot's underhand underground scheme.
