A real Bash Street has been unveiled in Dundee in honour of the naughty Beano school pupils The Bash Street Kids.
The new street sign, in the city's West Marketgait area, features Plug and Wilfred leaving messages for Teacher.
Plans for the street were put forward by Beano comic publishers DC Thomson, which is based in the city.
The Bash Street Kids are celebrating their 60th anniversary, having first appeared in a strip called When the Bell Rings in 1954.
Beano editor-in-chief Mike Stirling said: "The Bash Street Kids are legends of our past, present and future.
"By reading The Beano, generations have 'attended' school with the characters and kids still follow their adventures every week.
"It's truly an honour for kids of all ages, everywhere, that a street is being named after The Bash Street Kids.
"The Beano team are thrilled, well, everyone except Dennis. He's not a happy boy, not at all. He thinks the street should have been named 'Menace Street'."
