The Morecambe & Wise Special was a one-off book in the standard British Annual format (albeit slightly taller and wider than most of the period) published by Weidenfeld & Nicolson in 1977. It contained a mix of jokey features, though the only actual comics content was a four page strip titled 'Making the Grade!', written by comics historian Denis Gifford and drawn by Terry Wakefield. The strip was deliberately drawn in the style of a strip from Film Fun, which is referenced in the strip itself, and ends with the comedy trying to get work with 'Sir Loot Grade' (a parody of Lew Grade) of 'Low Grade Productions' before being hired by the BBC.
