The series premiered in 1948. Stopped in 1988.
is perhaps the most popular humour strip in Denmark
despite its unusual environment. We follow a possibly
widowed, nameless father who tries to raise his four
children (the series' title translates to Father of Four):
The older, nameless sister called Søs (Danish
abbreviation for Sister), the teenage twins Ole and Mie,
and the latecomer Per affectionately called Lille Per (Little
Per). The latter functions as the fun guy who manages
most of the punchlines that are either social
commentaries or subtle and clever conversation pieces.
The cozy family strip has sparked numerous films and new ones still premiere.
