Spip is a character in the comic book series Spirou & Fantasio. He is Spirou's pet squirrel.

Introduction

He accompanies Spirou and Fantasio on their adventures, and sometimes helps them out of some dangerous situations. He expresses his thoughts through thought bubbles, although, in early appearances he was capable of "speech". He is sometimes grumpy and makes sarcastic comments. Often, he critiques things that happen around him. Spip can be considered the tritagonist of the series.

History

First introduced in Issue #60 of Le Journal de Spirou, dated June 8th, 1939, where Spirou rescued him from the lab of a mad scientist, Sosthène Silly. He only appeared as a minor character, but when Jijé started authoring the series, he made him Spirou's sidekick.

Trivia

  • At one point, Dupuis considered making a "Journal de Spip", a companion to the Spirou magazine, for young children, but this idea was later discarded.[citation needed]The page "Help:Citation needed" does not exist in English Moegirlpedia yet.
