De familie Doorzon

De familie Doorzon (The Doorzon family) is a comic that appears in the Dutch weekly magazine De Nieuwe Revu. This magazine is not intended for younger readers and the comic aims at the same group as the magazine: adults. The comic features the crazy family Doorzon: father Doorzon, mother Doorzon, daughter Doortje Doorzon and her boyfriend Arie Bleekjes, son Tonnie Doorzon and his boyfriend Kees Bleekjes, son Ronnie Doorzon (who became a mob leader at a very young age) and the intelligent Dozo, the son of Doortje and Arie. Other important characters are Jan-Jaap (the neighbor with suicidal tendencies) and his attractive wife (who had a sexual relation with 12-year old Ronnie), environmentalist Emile (who had a sexual relation with at least 3 members of the Doorzon family), bartender Tinus and the destructive contractors the Biereco's.
