Big Eggo, quite possibly Britain's, if not the world's, most famous ostrich, was not the only ostrich to appear in The Beano! Shortly after Eggo ended, another ostrich was to take his place - Big Bazooka, illustrated by Charles Grigg. The football loving bird made his first appearence in 1952, and ended a year later in 1953, although he continued in the annuals for several more years.
Here's one of his adventures - from the 1957 Beano book! Click on an image, then again for maximum size.
