MAIN STORY
The series premiered in 1950. Stopped in 1963.

Rasmus Dyrepasser (the surname means Zookeeper in English) is a funny, Danish pantomime strip (always 6 panels) taking place in a very constricted area - a Zoo. It must be of enormous proportions, because every strip shows a new animal! The animals can be described as rather naturalistic or as very imaginative, and, common for most of them, they seem to be able to just walk away from their cages and restricted areas and roam as they please, while the jovial and relaxed Rasmus is just trying to do his job.
