The King Hollewijn
© Toonder studio's
As Kappie, "Koning Hollewijn" is not an animal serial, but it is addressed to the adults, more than the children. Thi good-natured king, with white beard, has all the annoyances of a XXth century monarchy, and at first a prime minister hard to endure. Happily, he has a goddaughter, young and fair girl, Wiebeline Wip. Cleverly she helps him to win from difficult situations.
The shorter of the 4 mains serials of Toonder has, alrhough, 73 storie (from 1954 to 1971). It was the less published in France (because the republican tradition ?). La Croix, national catholic newspaper, published one story, called "Le Roi Bouboule", and "Les éditions Mondiales" published 14 comics books "Arthur" (Hollewijn became the King Arthur...).
