Classic Collectible of the Day!

bewitched_annual

Yep, it's another Bewitched item, this time two Bewitched annuals! I believe these were produced in Great Britain, where they would produce a hard-back comic book annual for all kinds of TV shows, as well as American comics characters!

What I don't know at all is if these were all-original stories, or if they were reprints of the Dell comics issues.

Pretty nice cover paintings... but what's up with that white cat? The Stevens didn't own any cat, much less a white one!

  1. Jon,
    For the cover with Darren suspended over the soup, on the left, from http://www.thetoycabin.com/world_distributors_bewitched_annual_1966.html?category_id=1093 :
    "World Distributors Bewitched Annual 1966
    "A large format oblong book with slightly damaged spine. Price unclipped. ( 27cm x 19cm ) 10.5" x 7.5" "

    And, from http://www.bewitched.net/memorabl.htm :
    "British Bewitched Annual (1966) - A collection of 7 different short Bewitched-related fictional stories with color drawings of the characters, written with that special "British flair". Published by World Distributors. (23K)
    "British Bewitched Annual (1967) - A collection of 31 different short Bewitched-related fictional stories with color drawings of the characters, written by Kevin McGarry, L. Ryder, M. Broadley & L. Porter utilizing their special "British flair". Published by World Distributors."

    (The second is the book on the left, with Tabitha. BTW, I wonder if that isn't a toy animal that she's flying around the room?)

    The GCD lists 10 Annuals from WDL, including A-Team, Gunsmoke, and The Man from U.N.C.L.E., but not these 2.
    Hope this helps!
