''C'est pô juste...''

One of the most popular recent FrancoBelgianComics, ''Titeuf'', created in 1992 by the Swiss cartoonist Philippe Chappuis, aka ''Zep'' (as in Music/LedZeppelin), tells the everyday life of the 8-year-old Titeuf and his buddies, specifically on their... confused views regarding the adults and the world. It frequently plays with the ChildrenAreInnocent trope: The kids are far more aware of sex, drugs and the like than the adults would believe, but almost always by ComicallyMissingThePoint, especially Titeuf himself. A translated version appeared for a short while in ComicBook/TheDandy.

!!''Titeuf'' provides examples of:

* AerithAndBob: Titeuf (from ''"Tête d'Oeuf"'', "egghead", according to WordOfGod) versus the rest of the cast.
* AllMenArePerverts: This starts young. The fixation the boys have on the school nurse, for instance. Titeuf's "borrowing" a picture of his babysitter in a bathing costume.
* AnimatedAdaptation: A TV series and a movie.
* AnimeHair: Titeuf's blond lock, taking the IdiotHair trope to a whole new level by being his ''[[CharlieBrownBaldness only]]'' hair, and nearly as tall as his body.
* ArtEvolution: Characters were more rigidly drawn in the early albums, while they have rounder shapes in the later ones.
* AsleepInClass: Though not asleep per se, the children are really, really bored in class, and it shows.
* AuthorAvatar: Titeuf's father strongly resembles Zep.
* BaldWoman: Titeuf once meets a girl who is hiding a bald head under her hat: turns out she has cancer.
* {{Bowdlerise}}: On the TV series, the school nurse started out with [[GagBoobs overly large breasts]], but for her season 3 redesign they were reduced to a normal size.
* BleachedUnderpants: It's funny to see how wholesome and kid-pandering the series and franchise have gotten, considering the first comics were quite dark and adult.
* BracesOfOrthodonticOverkill: Worn by Jean-Claude, which he is not very happy about, causing him a speech impediment. When playing pretend games, he will sometimes play the part of a "steel-jawed tyrannosaurus".
* BucketBoobyTrap: The kids attempt to do that in real life after seeing it in a cartoon and... RealityEnsues. As said in the article page, water is heavy, and the bucket doesn't fall empty. Cue in a badly injured kid and two ashamed ones.
* CatchPhrase: C'est pô juste... (s'not fair...)
* CelebrityCameo: French rock singer Johnny Hallyday makes an almost-surreal appearance in the movie.
* ChildrenAreInnocent: As already mentioned, DoubleSubverted.
* ClusterFBomb
* ComicBookTime: The early albums are set during TheNineties, while the latest ones are set in TheNewTens, with Titeuf still being around the same age.
* DeliberatelyMonochrome: The first volume.
* TheDiseaseThatShallNotBeNamed: The infestation of headlice in the school. When Titeuf hears that kids with lice will be sent home for treatment, he sets about getting some. He gets sent to the school nurse instead.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness : The first few volumes (the very first one in particular) are considerably DarkerAndEdgier (maybe HotterAndSexier ?) than the later ones. In fact, their boldness can be downright disturbing. The first album is also the only one in black and white.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: Titeuf's parents are only addressed as such, but the trope is generally averted with the other adults.
* FakeOutOpening: The opening of the movie places everyone in Prehistoric times.
* FiveManBand
** TheHero (though he isn't recognized as such in universe): Titeuf
** TheLancer and TheChick: Manu
** TheBigGuy: [[FatBastard Hugo]].
** TheSmartGuy: [[NerdGlasses François]]
** SixthRanger: usually [[BracesOfOrthodonticOverkill Jean-Claude]]
* FromTheMouthsOfBabes: Will use very nasty words sometimes. Sometimes straight, sometimes innocently.
* HockeyMaskAndChainsaw: In the movie, when Titeuf is looking at a psychologist's patients, he pictures one of them must be very violent by having come out of his head a small killer wearing a hockey mask and brandishing a chainsaw.
* HospitalHottie: The busty school nurse.
* KidsAreCruel
* KissingCousins: Titeuf has shown to be once attracted to his cousin Julie, and immediately asked his dad if cousins could marry. He pointed out the genetic problems that could arise.
* KnownOnlyByTheirNickname: [[HollywoodHomely Dumbo]], [[MeaningfulName named for her]] [[Disney/{{Dumbo}} big nose and ears]].
* LimitedWardrobe: Averted for one scene in the movie where Nadia wears a white shirt instead of her usual black and Titeuf accidentally gets black ink on it.
* LoveLetterLunacy: In the movie, Titeuf thinks his parents are seperating because his mother found his love letter to Nadia and thought it was from a secret admirer of hers.
* NoSympathy: Zigzagged in the movie. Tituef accidentally gets Nadia and himself in trouble and sent to the principal's office [[ItMakesSenseInContext for passing notes in class]]. The principal takes pity on Titeuf when he mentions his parents are currently seperated and lets him off, but he doesn't even bother hearing Nadia's side of the story and punishes her.
* OddballInTheSeries: "Nadia gets married" is a full story about Titeuf getting jealous over Nadia's supposed boyfriend.
** "Welcome to teenagehood!", the latest album, does the same thing.
* ProgressivelyPrettier: Inverted with Nadia, who was originally drawn with a more traditionally "pretty" face, but was progressively drawn more cartoonish and with big pouting lips, to more fit in with the comical atmosphere.
* SchoolNurse: the strikingly-''poitrine'd'' "Double-Airbags", whose ''embonpoint'' stops all conversation as she walks past.
* SternTeacher: Titeuf's teacher, an old strict lady.
* TinyGuyHugeGirl: [[spoiler: Titeuf recently dates another girl, Ramatou, who is much taller than him.]]
* ToiletHumor: Quite often.
* VitriolicBestBuds
* VomitIndiscretionShot: Hervé, aka "Vomito", has this as his hat.
