Maboul, Professor. Professor Maboul was created by the French creator Georges Méliès and appeared in the film La Conquête du Pôle (1912).
Professor Maboul is a French inventor who has created a chicken-headed “aerobus,” or dirigible, with which he proposes to explore the North Pole. He assembles a team of six professors from England, the U.S., Germany, Spain, China and Japan, and they set forth. Unfortunately, they encounter the “géant des neiges” (giant of the snows), an enormous giant who tries to eat the explorers. They escape and return in triumph to Paris.
