Look-In Television Annual 1989
Price at £3.75, the 1989 Look-In annual features many nine celebrity faces you will recognise from 1989 on its cover, including Rick Astley, Madonna, Cilla Black and Alf. Inside there are two picture strip stories; Knight Rider: Kitt's Love Match and Black Beauty: A Dry Spell. The back cover is very disappointing in that it simply features a big yellow star and four rectangular blocks of red and blue.
There are six Pleased To Meet You sections featuring Timmy Mallett, Bros, Stephen Hendry, Debbie Gibson, Cilla Black and ALF.
Also included in the jokes section Tommy Cannon's Favourites Funnies and Bobby Ball's Greatest Giggles. There are also many pages of puzzles & quizzes.
Special features include Paper Heroes, Stable Stars, 5-Star: The Facts, The Hit Factories, Andrea on Wheels, The Real Ghosts, Dance Crazy and Years of '89.
The photos of well-known 80s celebrities inside the TV screens featured on the front cover starting with the 1984 annual, although they were in two vertical strips until 1986. From 1987 to 1990, the TV screens were in three horizontal strips, and the final annual in 1991 went back to the vertical format. The first annual was published in 1972 and featured Roger Moore on the front cover.
