Background notes: Gøjen (Popsy in UK and USA) like Pildskadden and Frømand usually has no active parts in the stories. The function of Gavstrikkerne mostly resembles Storm P.'s "De tre små mænd og Nummermanden" or the pictures on the walls in George MacManus' strip "Bringing Up Father" adding small pantomime stories within the main story.
