Poes, Tom. Tom Poes was created by the Dutch creator Martin Poonder and appeared in the comic strip “Tom Poes” (1939-present).

Tom Poes is a white cat who lives in a world in which there are few humans and many anthropomorphic animals. Poes lives outside the city-state of Rommeldam, near the Black Mountains. Poes is a brave individual who tries to help people and fight for good, despite the opposition of the evil wizard Hocus Pas and the faerie-like “small people.” Poes is helped by his friends Oliver Bommel (the tenth richest being in the world), the artist Terpen Tijn, and the scientist Prlwytzkofsky.
