Douwe Dabbert

Douwe Dabbert

Douwe Dabbert is a Dutch comics series by artist Piet Wijn and scenarist Thom Roep.


Douwe Dabbert is a small gnome-like creature. He goes through all sorts of strange adventures where he meets (often) supernatural beings. He carries a magical knapsack from which he, and only he, can always conjure items that suit the situation.

In total, twenty-three comic books appeared starring Douwe Dabbert. From 1975 to 2001, these stories were published as a sequel-story in the Dutch version of the weekly magazine Donald Duck. Apart from the album stories, some shorter stories that never made it to a full album were printed in Donald Duck. Most of these stories were no longer than a few pages.

Pief, capture from Het flodderwerk van Pief

On his journeys, Douwe often encountered recurrent characters, such as Domoli, Pief en Kijfje – three wizard apprentices who have appeared in six of his adventures. Another example is Wredulia, a mean witch who plays a part in two stories. Furthermore, there are Ludo Lafhart and Knudde, two clumsy crooks who appear in three stories. In several of his stories, he had a dodo as a companion.

The last story was partially drawn by Dick Matena, due to Piet Wijn's poor health at the time.
