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. http://www.20minutes.fr/culture/179...-bd-comment-spirou-enfin-retrouve-marsupilami http://bdzoom.com/97508/lart-de/«-s...u-marsupilami-»-par-yoann-et-fabien-vehlmann/ Dupuis did a little video showing some flashbacks of the Marsupilami in Spirou to introduce the new Tome 55.
