La Famille Citrouillard, by René-Charles Béliveau

René-Charles Béliveau was one of the artists from Quebec that began to draw comics for Canadian newspapers around the turn of the 20th century. He was the creator of 'La Famille Citrouillard', about a family that came directly from the country and discovered the disappointments of urban and modern life. It appeared in La Patrie from 23 April 1904. Béliveau's characters were sometimes featured in the strip 'Timothée' by Albéric Bourgeois and vice versa. Béliveau left this series in 1905, to began 'Le Père Nicodème'. 'La Famille Citrouillard' was taken over by T. Bisson, who drew the series for another year. The characters were then integrated in Th. Busnel's version of the 'Timothée' strip.
