    Long before Disney had did a cartoon featuring Marsupilami. It was part of the Franco-Belgian comic book series "Spirou & Fantasio" when André Franquin, who worked on the series at that time created it. However when Franquin left Spirou & Fantasio to others authors to continue the series. He kept the rights of Marsupilami and sell it later to Marsu Productions.

    However Dupuis (who publish Spirou & Fantasio) acquired Marsu productions in 2013 and the current staff who work on Spirou, Yohann and Frank Vehlmann, bring back Marsupilami in Spirou and Fantasio in Tome 55 named in French, "La colère du Marsupilami" (the anger of Marsupilami) who explain the disseapearance of Marsupilami from the world of Spirou & Fantasio. I spotted 2 good French articles about it.

    Dupuis did a little video showing some flashbacks of the Marsupilami in Spirou to introduce the new Tome 55.

    I wish they came out with more Franco-Belgian comics in English.

    There a publisher in the UK called Cinebook who did translation of some of the Franco-Belgian comics book series. Some of them are available on Amazon.com. http://www.cinebook.co.uk/

    There are twenty Spirou comics translated into English :)

    Number 15 was translated in 1995 by Fantasy Flight Publishing. You can only buy it second-hand. It is called ''Spirou and Fantasio: Z is for Zorgub''.
    Numbers 1-11 and 14 were translated in 2007 by Egmont / Euro Books in India. You can find them on Amazon.
    Numbers 5-7, 33-34 and 39-43 have recently been translated by Cinebook in the UK: http://www.cinebook.co.uk/index.php?cPath=182
