Atypically, only pics, without any commentary.

Janosik

Not just pics. This is a discussion forum. Some text would be nice too.

Hmm, I think it is a fair deal - I post pics and members discuss what they see.

He is sort of Polish Robin Hood and you can meet him in Zakopane today:

Agent J-23, a NKVD agent under cover in the Abwehr. In communist times sold to the public as a Polish hero. You can see him daily on cable.

Because he is one of the most famous pop culture icons here.

Marek Perepeczko, an actor who played Janosik, a legendary Robin Hood-like figure based on a Slovak national hero.

Yes! Later he repeated the success of the 1970s and became an pop idol again in 1990s as a superior officer at 13 Police Station:

It's disgrace to put Janosik and Hans Kloss next to her.

Next should be Thorgal.

Come on, Doda?

Yes, on request of male members of the forum.

It's disgrace to put Janosik and Hans Kloss next to her.

You are simply jealous.

Next should be Thorgal.

No, Thorgal isn`t truly Polish.

But I have sth better for you and other female members:

what about Radamenes from "Siedem ¼yczeń/Seven wished"?

Sorry, it is too dark a figure to become a pop culture icon.

When we are at it...My favourite comics:

Yes, I loved them too but one day I realised they are the copy of Asterix/Obelix idea. Can you imagine my disappointment? :):):)

As a Polish patriot, I prefer original, pure Polish comic characters! :):):):)

E.g., Titus de Zoo. Funny, he was also made from ink, just like Ink Blot!

Poland cartoon

Child heroes in Poland

Titus the Astronomer, episode 8, whole story.

Does anyone remember the name of a cartoon with two cats one of them being Bonifacy?

Oh wow, I remember that! :D I liked that part about a magic flute :)

"Przygody kota Filemona"
I liked it, it was warm and fuzzy and the white kitten was sweet and funny :)

Yes, sweet, but a little silly, too. :):) This is what I found on the subject:

THE HEROES TO TODAY'S YOUNG POLES

Since a recent international study on youth authorities, heroes and idols did not include Poland, perhaps this forum may be a good place to find out where young Poles stand. The results differed from country to country and among the figures listed were (not necessarily in this order): Allah, Snoop Dog, Harry Potter, Jesus, Spiderman, Angeline Jolie, Superman, Nelson Mandela, Jackie Chan, Kelly Clarkson, Martin Luther King, Homer Simpson, Mohammed, Angela Merkel, Bruce Lee, Christiano Ronaldo, Bob Marley...

Each country had entries unique to itself, so Poles answering this query are free to add names not listed above.

Haha, yes, but he was just a little kitten after all :)))

Merged: KAPITAN BOMBA - something about Polish pop culture and some hardcore curses

Do you want to find out something about Polish pop culture and lern some hardcore curses?

Look no further. Galaxy Kurvix is overrun by evil aliens. The only one that can defeat them is Captain Bomb.

Feud between two peasant families has remained engraved into Polish culture since 1960s.
