Here is my first scan from a German comic strip book (it comes from the Einfach Tierisch 1 Bauerschlau book).
It's dated 1987 which means it was either created before or during the first run of the Boes TV show. The reason I decided to scan this one in is to show the continuity between the comic strips and the TV show. Epiosde number three, "A Small Kindness, A Terrible Nuisance", features Ollie (Boes) dashing around with his doctors bag trying to help out sick and injured animals. As you can see from the above scan it was a concept taken from the comic strips. I have other scans to further illustrate this point...but I'll save them for another day. In the meantime, enjoy this comic strip!
