The studios produced several new stories for Bravo! to succeed the original local production by Laudy, Jacobs, Vandersteen and Sirius. These stories included 'Cyprien Bravo', 'Phill Blue-Eyes' and 'Capitaine Hardell', among others. Rali and Tenas, accompanied by Duchateau, also made 'Le Triangle de Feu' for Spirou magazine in 1952 (signing with D'Aisin). The studios subsequently collaborated to the launch of the Belgian Disney studios, that produced comics and illustrations for Le Journal de Mickey.
