By the end of the 1950s television was beginning to replace the written words as a means of mass entertainment. Published annuals were on the decline. TV Fun Annual was in many ways a 'last gasp'. The cover depicts Arthur Askey of Radio Fun bursting through the hoot to a new beginning and singer Petula Clark who was at the height of her career, swinging across rivers.
