Fifty years ago today the world was introduced to a little guy with blond hair, a big droopy moustache and horns. He, his best friend Obélix, Idefix the dog and the villagers of a small town in Armorica began outwitting Romans – amongst others – October 29, 1959.
I first encountered Astérix le petit Gaulois in French class and I can’t imagine a better way to learn a language.
Joyeux anniversaire Astérix, Obélix et toutes le gang!
