A Special Story About Harold is a rhyming magazine story.


Harold springs a leak in his fuel tank and is looking desperately for a place to land. Below, his pilot spots a football pitch where they are forced to land. Suddenly, a clock strikes three and football players rush out onto the field. The game was played regardless with Harold right in the middle of the pitch. Harold doesn't mind - he loves football!



  • The football pitch is called a "soccer pitch", but soccer is an American term.
  • The football match would not have continued with a helicopter in the middle of the pitch.
  • Harold's propellers are coloured white.
  • The third image is repeated twice.
