Abstract : From 1932 to 1939, the cartoonist Robert Fuzier not only contributed satirical cartoons, but also a weekly comic strip - The adventures of Dede and Doudou - to Le Populaire: the mainly daily of the socialist party SFIO [Section Française de l'Internationale Ouvrière - the French Section of the Workers' International]. These were designed to strengthen the appeal of the newspaper, serving as socialist propaganda for children, and were supportive of the movement of the Faucons rouges [Red Hawks - a socialist scouting movement]. A strong link is thus established between the two graphic genres. The comic strips elaborated on the then-current cartoons by taking up some of their subjects, giving another life to their most negative characters, and marrying many of their stylistic and comical processes. The aim was thus to beguile readers of the comics, plunging the malignant, "loaded" characters from reality into stories that end up ridiculing them or demonizing them. This interaction between the two genres varied depending on the political context. While already very apparent whenever the comic strips incorporated their heroes with real characters from the cartoons (transposed to exotic places) this became especially striking at the time of the Italian invasion of Ethiopia (1935-6), when such heroes were made to participate directly in the events of the hour. However the link became very tenuous in the following two years thereafter.
