''Vater und Sohn'' is a German b/w comic strip by Erich Ohser aka e.o.plauen that tells about the hijinks in the life of a father and his son. It was published weekly during 1934-37 in the ''Berliner Illustrirten Zeitung''.

Before you ask: Yes, this was during the time of UsefulNotes/NaziGermany. Here's the background: The artist had made anti-nazi caricatures during the WeimarRepublic, so when ThoseWackyNazis came to power, he was forbidden to publish anything. They only made an exception since V+S was completely unpolitical, and published under a pseudonym. And even so, he still had trouble with the nazis - he ended up committing suicide in [[UsefulNotes/TheGestapo Gestapo]] custody.

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: The mother only appeared in the first few strips.
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin
* GenerationXerox: When we meet the grandfather and great-grandfather.
* HisNameReallyIsBarkeep: It seems more like NoNameGiven initially. But then we see: They even sign with "Vater" and "Sohn".
* NotSoDifferent: Sometimes the father punishes the son, but even more often they are having fun together.
* ThePunishmentIsTheCrime: When the son smokes a pipe - in front of his father - the father reacts by simply not doing anything. It doesn't take too long, and the son feels sick from the tobacco and leaves, probably for the bathroom.
* SingleMaltVision: In one strip, the father gets so drunk, he thinks he has ''four'' sons and buys four tickets for him.
* SoreLoser: The father isn't pleased when he gets defeated by the son in TabletopGame/{{Chess}}.
