* AVillainNamedZrg: Zorglub, of course[[note]]Some theorize his name is actually a parody of this trope, being a fusion of it and the word "Arglub" that is often used in classic Franco-Belgian comic to render choking noises.[[/note]]. In a downplayed examples, other villains created by Franquin (such as Zantafio or Zabaglione) also tend to have "Z" somewhere in their name.

The titular Man is Fantasio's old adventurer uncle Zantafio, who found the Fountain of Youth and brought back copious amounts of its waters (the Elixir) in large bottles.

The magazine this series was created for, now titled ''Spirou'', is [[PrintLongRunners still being published nowadays]]. It is now a [[AnthologyComic weekly anthology]] of various comedy series, as well as serializing various adventure series of Dupuis's catalogue. Throughout the '90s and 2000s, its eponymous series barely appeared in it (due to frequent ScheduleSlip), though ''ComicBook/LePetitSpirou'' remained a regular presence. This changed with the one-shots, which have been published at thrice the rhythm of the main series so far.

* ThemeMobile: Whatever Zorglub invents is invariably named as Zorg-something, which gives us the zorglumobile and the zorgcopter (and the zorgwave, zorgspeak, the Zorgmen...).

* ArchEnemy: Zantafio
** Zorglub is a weird mix of this and FriendlyEnemy with Champignac, at least until he pulls a HeelFaceTurn.
