Art and images relating to the comic character, Marsupilami. Created by Belgian comics giant, André Franquin (1924-1997), the super-strong Marsupilami made his debut in 1952, in the comic, Spirou & Fantasio (image 1). He grew and grew in popularity, and eventually not only had his own series, but also a hit song dedicated to him: the terrible, dumb, and catchy Wij zijn twee vriendjes (Hoeba Hoeba Hop), in 1978. Watch the horror here:

Marvel tried an animated series, Disney actually did it, but if you want to know the Marsupilami: read the comics. That’s where he lives.

(The images are all in Dutch, as that’s where I’m from, see.)
