Adaptations

Films

The series was adapted into two live-action films: one in 1981 and in 2018. The first film, Fais gaffe à la gaffe!, released in 1981, did not feature Franquin's characters, since Franquin did not authorize the franchise to be adapted at that time. The second, Gaston Lagaffe, directed by Pierre-François Martin-Laval, was released in 2018.

TV series

The comic strip was adapted into a TV series produced by Marsu Productions and the studio Normaal.

Other media

  • Two smartphone games based on the series were released in 2011.[1]
  • A 4D simulation ride, Gaffe à Gaston, is located in Parc Spirou, a theme park starring the characters from Spirou magazine.[2]
