The series premiered in
1947. Stopped in 1976.
This 4-panel newspaper pantomime
strip is reminiscent of Ferd'nand; it
stars a family man, Louie, as well as a nameless
wife and a nameless dog, and they are all
entirely silent. Louie is a small man with a big
moustache, that tends to show his mood at the
moment (for instance, by hanging when he is sad).
By nature Louie is a mild-mannered character
leading an eventless life, and he was once
described by Hanan as an anti-Superman.
