This from the BBC cult website:"Statistics show that you're most likely to get your own story in a girls' comic if you're a sporty, disabled, artistic Victorian orphan who lives with a violent aunt or uncle, having a hurt sister/brother/pet who you need to earn money for, but don't realise that your best friend secretly resents you, the snobs are plotting against you, and an evil mastermind is attempting to take over your school and you're the only one who can resist her powers. However, this will count for nothing if your name doesn't lend itself to a clever titular pun.
Over forty-three years (Jan 1958 to Feb 2001), Bunty's The Four Marys went through several looks, lots of school hols and a change of headmistress, but the girls stayed in the Third Form throughout. "
You are right, JvS and BB, Bunty was brilliant after all. But it still wasn't as good as Misty. I can't believe I'm arguing with a pair of feminists who are defending bloody Bunty.
