Bermúdez, Gapy. Gapy Bermúdez was created by the Spanish author Joaquin Belda and appeared in ¿Quién disparó (1909).

¿Quién disparó, set in Madrid, is a spoof, full of characters who (in the words of one critic) "seem to have just stepped out of a zarzuela" (Spanish light opera). Gapy Bermúdez is a Great Detective. He is a Sherlock Holmes spoof, performing the usual feats of deduction and the like. He is Watsoned by the narrator, who claims to be Belda himself.
