Although at the first glance Macherot's comic strip characters look like Disney ones there is a big difference in style and layout. Chlorophylle does look similar to Mickey Mouse, but he is a door mouse and his adventures have a special satire dimension, which makes the comic acceptable for adult audience. The episodes taking place on the islands inhabited only by animals are especially amusing. The adventures of Chlorophylle first appeared in the French and Belgian youth comic book magazine Tin Tin in mid 50's. Later it was published in many other countries.
