Asterix or The Adventures of Asterix (French: Astérix or Astérix le Gaulois, IPA: [ asteʁiks lə ɡolwa]) is a series of French comics. The series first. This deal reminded me how i used to enjoy the wonderful Asterix books from the library. wanted to introduce them to.

Most of these jokes, and hence the names of the characters, are specific to the translation; for example, the druid named Getafix in English translation is Panoramix in the original French and Miraculix in German.

His name is usually left unchanged in translations, aside from accents and the use of local alphabets. For explanations of some of the other names, see List of Asterix characters.

Ethnic stereotypes[ edit ] Many of the Asterix adventures take place in other countries away from their homeland in Gaul. In every album that takes place abroad, the characters meet usually modern-day stereotypes for each country, as seen by the French.

Italics Italians are the inhabitants of Italy. In the adventures of Asterix, the term "Romans" is used by non-Italics to refer to all inhabitants of Italy, who at that time had extended their dominion over a large part of the Mediterranean basin.

But as can be seen in Asterix and the Chariot Race , in the Italic peninsula this term is used only to the people from the capital, with many Italics preferring to identify themselves as Umbrians, Etruscans, Venetians, etc. Various topics from this country are explored, as in this example, Italian gastronomy pasta, pizza, wine , art, famous people Pavarotti, Berlusconi, Mona Lisa , and even the controversial issue of political corruption. Goths Germans are disciplined and militaristic, they are composed of many factions that fight amongst each other which is a reference to Germany before Otto von Bismarck , and to East and West Germany after the Second World War , and they wear the Pickelhaube helmet common during the German Empire.

Helvetians Swiss are neutral, eat fondue , and are obsessed with cleaning, accurate time-keeping, and banks. The Britons English are phlegmatic , and speak with early 20th-century aristocratic slang similar to Bertie Wooster. They stop for Tea every day making it with hot water and a drop of milk until Asterix brings them actual tea leaves , drink lukewarm beer Bitter , eat tasteless foods with mint sauce Rosbif , and live in streets containing rows of identical houses.

Hibernians Irish are the inhabitants of Hibernia, the Latin name of Ireland. They fight against the Romans alongside the Britons to defend the British Isles.

Hispania Spain is overrun with tourists , the country where people of northern Europe go on vacation, ask to eat the same food they eat at their homelands, and cause tremendous traffic jams on the Roman roads. Other recurring topics are flamenco , bullfighting , and olive oil. Reference is also made to the famous literary character Don Quixote. The warrior first hallucinates American-style emblematic eagles ; the second time, he sees stars in the formation of the Stars and Stripes ; the third time, he sees stars shaped like the United States Air Force roundel.

Asterix's inspired idea for getting the attention of a nearby Viking ship which could take them back to Gaul is to hold up a torch; this refers to the Statue of Liberty which was a gift from France.

Corsicans are proud, patriotic, and easily aroused but lazy, making decisions by using pre-filled ballot boxes. They harbour vendettas against each other, and always take their siesta.

Greeks are chauvinists and consider Romans, Gauls, and all others to be barbarians. They eat stuffed grape leaves , drink retsina , and are hospitable to tourists.

Most seem to be related by blood, and often suggest some cousin appropriate for a job. Normans Vikings drink endlessly, they don't know what fear is which they're trying to discover , and in their home territory Scandinavia , the night lasts for 6 months. Cimbres Danes are very similar to the Normans.

But while Asterix and Obelix were unable to communicate with them, they are perfectly able to understand the Cimbres.

Their names end in "-ten", perhaps similar to those of the Normans, whose names end in "-sen". Belgians speak with a funny accent, snub the Gauls, and always eat sliced roots deep-fried in bear fat.

They also tell Belgian jokes. Lusitanians Portuguese are short in stature and polite Uderzo said all the Portuguese who he had met were like that.

Sumerians , Assyrians , Hittites , Akkadians , and Babylonians are perpetually at war with each other and attack strangers because they confuse them with their enemies, but they later apologize when they realize that the strangers are not their enemies.

This is likely a criticism of the constant conflicts among the Middle Eastern peoples. The Jews are all depicted as Yemenite Jews , with dark skin, black eyes, and beards, a tribute to Marc Chagall , the famous painter whose painting of King David hangs at the Knesset Israeli Parliament. Asterix's and Obelix's visit to Jerusalem is full of references to the Bible.

Numidians , contrary to the Berber inhabitants of ancient Numidia located in North Africa , are obviously Africans from sub-Saharan Africa. The names end in "-tha", similar to the historical king Jugurtha of Numidia. The Picts Scots wear typical dress with a kilt skirt , have the habit of drinking "malt water" whisky and throwing logs caber tossing as a popular sport; their names all start with "Mac-". Asterix and the Big Fight.
