From his somewhat questionable beginnings as a comic relief character...
He fairly quickly developed into something more than a simple foil for the series' star, Spirou. Since the title character of the spinoff series Gaston Lagaffe took over the buffoon part, Fantasio's role became more of the long-suffering straight man. But not entirely so, developing into an appealing blend of Man of Adventure and a necessary dash of irreverence and sheer goofiness, a much more fitting companion to the ready-for-action Spirou.
A couple of choice moments for your indulgence:
Fantasio encounters Japanese fixtures:
Fantasio shows the ladies some smooth moves:
(his idea of a pick-up line is "I don't live with my parents any more")
Fantasio goes through some minor changes, thanks to an invention of Champignac's:
(a man must have priorities, in the end)
Fantasio demonstrating improper usage of office furniture under the influence:
And finally, a follow up to the One Perfect Moment I posted before, where we believed that Spip had drowned during an attack of Ms. Flanners' robots:
What's not to love? Besides, he can go en pointe like a pro!
(seriously, what straight man does that reflexively, anyway?)
