Great comic starring the cat Heinz. Heinz was probably inspired by Garfield but contrary to Garfield Heinz lives on his own without a boss. Other important figures of the comic are Fritz the cat, Judocus the turtle and the intelligent Ape. The Dutch Heinz creators Eddie de Jong and Rene Windig both work on drawings and scripts. They are producing a hilarious comic by using only a few words and a few lines.

Doctor: [POK!]
Heinz:  Now that's a no-nonsense solution.
