Are you sure? I've been getting the 'annuals' (of Wullie and 'The Broons' on alternate years) since the 60s and he's always been called 'Oor Wullie'.
I can only imagine it was some attempt to anglicize him ?

Oor Wullie has been published (under that name) since the 1930s. They may well hae produced some anglicised versions in the 1980s in an attempt to expand the market beyond Scotland but they certainly weren't the "originals".

Do you have any "The Browns"? annuals?

lol. Ovbviously you can type faster then me!

This from Wikipedia (the definitive source of all knowledge - it's well known that fiction becomes fact when published in Wikipedia, and vice versa if it isn't):

"In the original Watkins scripts the dialect unquestionably placed the action on Scotland's east coast, probably D.C. Thomson's hometown of Dundee. In 1970s annuals, which reprinted earlier strips, Watkins' dialogue was Anglicised somewhat, and the current scripts feature Scots dialect of a more generic kind"

No mention of "Our Willie", but I'd love to see a copy o that. By jove! Goodness, gracious me! That's terribly good!
