->''Marsupilami coming running through the jungle,\\
Tales to tell we having the swinging good time,\\
Singing HOUBA! (HOUBA?) HOOOOOUUUUUBBAAAA! (HOUBA!) Oooh Marsupilami!\\
Marsupilami coming climbing through the trees,\\
He's so co-co nutty, We go bananas,\\
Singing HOUBA! (HOUBA?) HOOOOOUUUUUBBAAAA! (HOUBA!) Oooh Marsupilami!\\
HOUBA! Co-co nutty! HOOOOOUUUUBBAAAA!\\
Marsupilami coming always dropping by,\\
Just to hang around and have a swinging good time,\\
Singing HOUBA! (HOUBA?) HOOOOOUUUUUBBAAA! (HOUBA!) Oooh Marsupilami!''

In 1987, Franquin decided to create his own publishing company, Marsu Production, and launched a [[SpinOff spin-off]] comic about a family of marsupilamis, unrelated to Spirou's pet. They too started in ''ComicBook/SpirouAndFantasio'', being the subject of a [[ShowWithinAShow documentary within the series]] in the album ''Le nid des marsupilamis'' (''The Marsupilamis' Nest''). Mainly drawn by Franquin's assistant, Batem (Luc Collin), the series counts 22 albums in 2009 and is geared toward a younger readership than ''ComicBook/SpirouAndFantasio''.

In 1992, a first AnimatedAdaptation was launched. Produced by Creator/{{Disney}} and aired originally as a segment on ''WesternAnimation/RawToonage'', it only lasted a season and had little in common with the original, [[InNameOnly beside the name and the general appearance of the hero]]. The title Marsupilami could talk and was a laid-back [[DeadpanSnarker smartass]] rather than a [[UnstoppableRage volatile]] PapaWolf. All of the supporting cast was original. He was accompanied by his buddy, a big ape named Maurice, and met a lot of [[MisplacedWildlife African animals]]. Another change on Marsupilami that he now has the ability to speak and does not just say "HOUBA!" It was first aired on [[Creator/{{NBC}} NBC Saturday Mornings]]. Then it was later reran on the Creator/DisneyChannel and later, on Creator/ToonDisney.

A second cartoon was created in 2000 by a French production company. Much closer to the original than the Disney one in the first season, it was rechristened ''My Friend Marsupilami'' for the second season and centered upon a French human family that came to live in the middle of the Amazonian forest to study the marsupilamis.

!!The ''Marsupilami'' Marsupilami provides examples of the following tropes:
of:



* FlowerInHerHair: The main {{Tertiary Sexual Characteristic|s}} of Marsupilamies.




!!Tropes specific to the ''Marsupilami'' comics and the French cartoon:

* AnimalTalk: Very rare in the earlier albums -- In Franquin's short comics, he would occasionally have animals make comments to one another for the sake of a gag, but this tendency vanished in the album series proper, and for the first twenty-odd albums it stayed that way (bar the odd parrot). In more recent albums, though, animals get a lot more dialogue, though the Marsupilamis are an exception: They're clearly communicating and usually you can get the general gist of what they're saying from context and body language, but their "houba" cries are never directly translated.
* AscendedExtra: To some degree, the Marsupilami family themselves, since these particular Marsupilamis only appeared in one Spirou story, mainly to show that Spirou and Fantasio's Marsupilami wasn't the only one in existence. One recent ''Marsupilami'' comic reveals that Spirou and Fantasio's Marsupilami is in fact the brother of the Marsupilami from this comic.
** Noé, the clown and animal tamer, was a one-shot character from a ''Spirou'' story who went on to be a recurring character in this comic.
* TheChewToy: Bring M. Backalive
* {{Expy}}: Colin and Remi, the two journalists who house the Marsupilami family for a few albums, are pretty much Spirou and Fantasio with different looks and names.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Noé, the clown/animal tamer. While he is NotGoodWithPeople, he gets along famously with any and all animals.
* GreatWhiteHunter: Backalive only wishes he could be one.
* JungleJapes: The deep Palombian jungle where the Marsupilamis live.
* MeaningfulName: Bring M. Backalive is a hunter whose obsession is to capture a living marsupilami. Counts as a BilingualBonus as well, for its French readers.
* PapaWolf: You do not wanna touch Marsu's babies. In fact, harming babies of ''any'' species, including human children, is a bad idea when he's around.
* PandaingToTheAudience: One adventure is about a baby panda.
* PiranhaProblem: Marsu '''eats''' them.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: The baby marsupilamis, Bibu, [[TheSmurfettePrinciple Bibi]] and Bobo, [[http://1c.img.v4.skyrock.net/8396/24378396/pics/1650426260.jpg especially in the animated series]].
* TheRenaissanceAgeOfAnimation
* UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist: Bring M. Backalive, in his stories, swings between this and VillainProtagonist.

!!Tropes specific to the Disney cartoon:

* BadlyBatteredBabysitter: Marsupilami and Maurice babysat the Three Baby Monkeys in the episode: "Hey, Hey, They're the Monkeys!"
* BigGuyLittleGuy: Maurice and Marsupilami respectively.
* TheCameo: Disney had the character show up in commercial bumpers on WesternAnimation/TheDisneyAfternoon in the 1991-92 season, a year prior to the premiere of ''WesternAnimation/RawToonage''.
* CanonImmigrant: All the characters (besides Marsupilami) from the Disney series.
* DeadpanSnarker: Marsupilami, sometimes leads to SnarkToSnarkCombat between him and Norman.
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: Maurice the gorilla.
* InstantWristwatch: Marsupilami did wore a watch while checking the blood-pressure on Maurice in the Raw Toonage short: ''Jungle Fever''.
* LogoJoke: In the episode "Toucan Always Get What You want", Maurice grabs the Rainbow Tail Peacock of ''Creator/{{NBC}}''-TV Network to hide himself from Eduardo as Marsupilami hides from a tree. [[note]]This was a third and final time Disney made a joke with the Rainbow Tail Peacock of ''Creator/{{NBC}}''-TV Network. The others include the first episode of Disney's ''Wonderful of Color'' (which introduced Ludwig Von Drake) and the TV Special: ''It's tough to be a bird''. This was before Disney bought ''Creator/{{ABC}}''-TV Network in 1996.[[/note]]
-->'''Eduardo:''' I don't feel like no stinking bird today, My stomach craves the little spotted guy with the tail.
* MisplacedWildlife: The Disney series has this a lot.
* TheRenaissanceAgeOfAnimation
* ShoutOut: In the Disney Series, Four jungle men who sound like Music/TheBeatles are based on the four cavemen from the classic Disney short Toot, Whistle, Plunk and Boom.
* SickEpisode: Jungle Fever (where Marsupilami tries to cure Maurice from his cold).
* TheSpeechless: Maurice from the Disney series, who grunts.
* TalkingAnimal: In the Disney version, Marsupilami can talk and not just say "Houba!"
* VoiceOverTranslation: In Russia, A Russian male voice actor translate the dialog and keeps the English soundtrack as background noises.
