I never saw any but I'm intrigued and I added one of them to my watchlist. I like the names of the characters and the descriptions of the movies are pretty cool. 

Oh, my gosh, the "Peter Griffin answer" reminds me of 'the "Betty White option," lol. What ever happened to that? I loved it. I bet you and I are two of maybe five or six who have been around long enough to remember that. : )

Regarding your post above, were you having problems with the list or this thread (?) because I noticed your link back to this thread didn't take. 

Oh, may I suggest one small edit to the (really good) intro? ('below in bold)

The little Gaul might be the French equivalent to Mickey Mouse --- hey, he even got his own theme park in 1989!

I'll fix the typo, thanks Ruby.... yeah, I was pretty p**** off this morning because I really don't get why the intro would be problematic in the first place.

Seriously, I can't recommend enough Asterix, it's witty, funny with the kind of harmless humor that can appeal to everyone, you should start with Asterix and Cleopatra, my all-time favorite, watch the first minute and who knows? you might end up watching the whole film.

Oh my gosh, I just watched the first two minutes and it's great! 'Really creative and original, funny, and like nothing I've ever seen before. The animation is so charming; actually everything about it is charming. I' still watching it. : )

Thank you x 10, ElMo!

I'll never stop finding a purpose in my life as long I can make other people discover the gems of my childhood. Your comment made my day, ruby.

It's never too late to discover Asterix, try the albums ruby, especially those written by René Goscinny. As for the movies, may I recommend The Twelve Tasks of Asterix (1976).

You need to fix the return link to this page. It doesn’t work. You don’t have the address to this page after “link=“.

I too never saw any of these but I will look for them. Especially the one about America (And yes, I am already fore-warned that it will critique the U.S.A.. )

I don't remember any critique of the USA (the movie is set almost 2000 years before its formation). It's one of the weaker entries of the series though.

ElM,

I'm assuming you will take care of the discussion link, now that this thread has  reappeared.

ElM,

Thanks for adding the discussion link. I know that you would normally do so, except when Get Satisfaction offers undesirable challenges.

It beats me why this one, of all the suggestions, had to bug, Asterix didn't deserve it :( :(

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Poll Suggestion: Bon Anniversaire, Astérix! (60th Anniversaire).

"By Toutatis!", "These Romans are Crazy!", "Ave Caesar!" et caetera...

So many catchphrases and adventures that enriched the childhood of many comic-book readers all over the world. Asterix, the little Gaul is one of the most popular and emblematic character of the French-Belgian school, with adventures that spanned six decades and a dozen of cinematic adaptations, making it one of the most successful and enduring French franchises of all time. Asterix might be the French equivalent to Mickey Mouse, hey, he even got his own theme park in 1989!

The little Gaul's adventures also many catchphrases that became part of everyday language such as "the sky is falling on our heads" or "falling into nk] when you were a child", a reference to the magic potion and Obelix who, as we know, isn't fat but "just well-covered".

Celebrating a milestone year for Asterix, the 60th anniversary of his creation and 30th of his park, which of these cinematic adaptations of Asterix' adventures, live-action or animated, is your favorite?

"The Twelve Tasks of Asterix". Instead of adapting any of the comic book stories, the writers wrote an original story which somehow resolves the series' main struggle and concludes the Gallic Wars in alternate history mode, with the Gauls in control of the Roman Empire.

In the process, the story satirizes beauraucracy, turns a gladiator fight to a choreographed circus performance, exaggerates Obelix's hunger and strength to a degree unseen in the regular series (he even eats one of the monsters which he was sent to defeat), and features a horror comedy scene involving an army of ghosts that manages to be both spooky and funny.
