1996: RUGRATS Issue 1 (Marvel UK)

From May 1996: the first issue of MARVEL UK's RUGRATS weekly, based (of course) on the animated series.

It's an eye-catching front cover... except for the gotta-go-somewhere barcode.  Oopsie.  

This would have been one of the final launches to come out of the Annex Of Ideas before Marvel's acute financial woes forced the sale of their Panini subsidiary... including the British Bullpen. 

I think I managed to catch episodes of the series twice... and both times it turned out to be the same episode!  A testament to the BBC's commitment to value for money by playing the same cartoons until the tapes wore out.
