Jimmy das Gummipferd, by Roland Kohlsaaat

Roland Kohlsaat started illustrating and cartooning after the second World War. His first comic strip was an adaptation of Erich Kästners' famous novel 'Emil und die Detektive'. In 1953, Kohlsaat created 'Jimmy das Gummipferd' ('Jimmy the Rubber Horse'), which became his most famous comic strip. It ran for nearly twenty-four years in the magazine Stern. In 1960, this strip was re-titled to 'Julios Abenteuerliche Reisen' ('Julio's Adventurous Voyages'). Kohlsaat became incapacitated in 1976, and the strip was discontinued. Roland Kohlsaat died on 1 February 1978.

For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
