Spirou. Spirou was created by the Belgian creators Jean Dupuis and Robvel and appeared in Le Journal De Spirou (1938-present).

Spirou is an adventurous young teenager who begins as a hotel groom but who is quickly dragged into a series of adventures around the world. He is assisted by Spip the Squirrel and by the eccentric inventor Comte de Champignac. He is accompanied by his best friend, the reporter Fantasio. Some of his enemies include the Mad Scientist Zorglub and the dictator Zantafio. Spirou travels to European operetta kingdoms, to China (in “The Prisoner of the Buddha”), and to the fictional South American nation of Palombia.
