Jimmy and His Magic Patch

Jimmy and His Magic Patch was a comic strip in the British comic The Beano which began in 1944. It focused on a boy named Jimmy, who had a magic patch on the seat of his trousers that transported him to wherever he wished to go. The story was reprinted in Dandy Beano: 50 Golden Years in 1988, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the two comics. It has also appeared in subsequent sequels to the book, and in Classics from the Comics.

Famous quotes containing the words patch, jimmy and/or magic:

    I sing a hero’s head, large eye
    And bearded bronze, but not a man,

    Although I patch him as I can
    And reach through him almost to man.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    Whar have you been for the last three year
    That you haven’t heard folks tell
    How Jimmy Bludso passed in his checks
    The night of the Prairie Belle?
    John Milton Hay (1838–1905)

    Oh, what a catastrophe for man when he cut himself off from the rhythm of the year, from his unison with the sun and the earth. Oh, what a catastrophe, what a maiming of love when it was a personal, merely personal feeling, taken away from the rising and the setting of the sun, and cut off from the magic connection of the solstice and the equinox!
    —D.H. (David Herbert)
