Comic Strip: Piet Pienter en Bert Bibber
Piet Pienter (left) and Bert Bibber (right)

"Piet Pienter en Bert Bibber" was a Belgian/Flemish comic strip series drawn by Jozef Van Hove (1919-2014) under the pseudonym "Pom". It ran from 1950 until 1995 and featured the adventures of two good friends, Piet Pienter and Bert Bibber.

Piet is the clever one, as his name indicates ("pienter" is a Dutch synonym for being smart). He often smokes a pipe and is generally a normal human being. Bert is the Anti-Hero. He is clumsy, na´ve, impulsive, not very bright, frequently overestimates his own powers and often bad-tempered when his luck runs out. But in general he has a good heart and sometimes shows moments of pure genius or craftiness. Other important main characters are:

  • Susan: the young and pretty daughter of an American millionaire. She often comes to aid when Piet and Bert have financial troubles or need stuff that regular folks cannot afford. Bert has a secret crush on her.

  • Theo Flitser: a young and enthusiastic photographer who works for a news paper and always searchs for a sensational scoop. Susan admires his professionalism and therefore Bert Bibber envies Theo.

  • Professor Kumulus and Professor Snuffel: two very smart and absent-minded professors.

  • Commissaris Knobbel: The unsympathetic and useless head of the police whose actions only make things worse. Still, whenever Piet and Bert solve a case, he pretends he solved them solely by himself.
