Just replaced my 1973 Follyfoot Annual today, thanks to e,bay. My now 35 year old daughter destroyed it as 4 year old. First by drawing on it, then by ripping the back off it. I was left with just the cover which I still have. Never mind alls well that ends well.
Will you come back.?

Well done Jean.  >41<

It always strikes me as a bit strange that the annuals didn't start until after the show had finished.  It was so popular during its run you'd have thought they might have at least put one out in 1972.

Especially as "Look- "In was so popular. Love the Follyfoot Annuals.

Thanks all. I,m just so glad I was able to replace it. It meant so much to me, that's why I kept the cover. This particular annual was a bit special as the pony on the back reminded me of one I rode as a teenager. It belonged to the brother of a boy I went out with. The ponys name was Rockerfella and as I was often likened to Dora at the time it held a special significance. >11<

Look what I found at the local Boot Fair this morning!



It's in lovely condition with no scribbling inside. I've spent the afternoon in the garden reading the comic strip stories and the interesting features - learned quite a few things about horses I didn't know before!

... And it cost me a cool... 50p!   ;)
Long live Follyfoot!
