[[caption-width-right:347:Jommeke and his friends]]

''"Jommeke"'' is a long-running (since 1955) Flemish comic strip, originally drawn by Jef Nys, but after his death in 2009 [[OutlivedItsCreator continued by other artists]]. Along with ''ComicBook/SuskeEnWiske, "ComicStrip/{{Nero}}", "ComicStrip/PietPienterEnBertBibber"'' and ''"ComicStrip/DeKiekeboes", "Jommeke"'' is one of the most famous and popular comic strips in Flanders.

The series tells the adventures of a 10- or 11-year-old boy, Jommeke, and his talkative parrot, Flip. The rest of the cast consists of the playful Filiberke, twin sisters Annemieke and Rozemieke and AbsentMindedProfessor Gobelijn.

The stories are exclusively for children and an institution in Flanders, but [[NoExportForYou virtually unknown over the borders]].
----
!!Some of the many tropes in Jommeke:
* AbnormalAmmo: Madam Pepermunt shoots peppermints instead of bullets, hence her nickname.
* AbsentMindedProfessor: Professor Gobelijn, who is such an expert in everything that he frequently does and says the opposite of what he means.
* AlienInvasion: Friendly aliens pass by in ''"De Kikiwikies"'' and ''"Opstand In Kokowoko"''.
* AmericansAreCowboys: Madam Pepermunt, an American woman, who carries a revolver wherever she goes.
* AntiquatedLinguistics: For a very long time, from its creation in 1955 until 1989, the characters all spoke the Flemish dialect. And this while other comics already spoke the Dutch standard language since the 1960s.
** Kwak always adds the letter ''h'' in front of every syllable. Boemel changes the letter 'b' into a 'p' and a 'd' into a 't'.
** The Native Americans all speak TontoTalk.
** Professor Gobelijn, because of his absent mindedness will use the exact opposite words and phrases of what he means in his sentences.
* AsianSpeekeeEngrish: Or Dutch for that matter. Asians in this comic strip all have trouble pronouncing the letter "r".
* BabiesMakeEverythingBetter: Jommeke and Flip discover a baby in "Het Hemelhuis" and decide to take care of him with the aid of Annemieke and Rozemieke.
* BadassBeard: Jan Haring.

* PrintLongRunners: This comic strip has been in syndication and production since 1955.
