The series is of Poland’s major ones Generations of Polish people grew up on it. Yes, we did have comic books back then.

Sad news …
but hey 97 is quite an age many can just dream of, not to mention the awesome artistic legacy of Papcio Chmiel.
By the way a well established animation studio - Human Ark is working on a feature 3d animation based on another famous polish comic book by Tadeusz Baranowski “Podróż Smokiem Diplodokiem”
the movie is to be titled “Diplodocus”

Great, I didn’t know that. Still, this adaptation may have little to do with the original due to intranslatable wordplay. I Read Baranowski’s comic books as well and they are for the upperintermediate learners of Polish for the wordplay.
