Bill Tidy (born 1933)


William Edward Tidy, MBE (born 1933)

Since selling his first cartoon almost sixty years ago, Bill Tidy has forged a reputation as one of Britain’s best-loved and most prolific cartoonists. He is perhaps best known for his strip cartoons ‘The Cloggies’ and ‘The Fosdyke Saga’.

Bill Tidy was born in Tranmere, Cheshire, on 9 October 1933. His father, William Edward Tidy, was a merchant sailor who walked out on the family when Bill was a child. As a result, Bill Tidy was brought up by his mother, Catherine Price, at her off-licence in Liverpool. Educated at St Margaret’s School, Anfield, Liverpool, he left school at fifteen and from 1950 to 1951, he worked for R.P.
