Lau Fu Tze, Now and Forever

Wong Chak (inset) caused a stir in a shopping complex in Ipoh, Perak not too long ago. When manga creator of Crayon Shin-chan, Yoshito Usui passed away, there were talks on another artist taking over his place to produce more Shin Chan delights. Such practice is not new. Wong Chak, for instance took over the mantle of his father Wong Kar Hei in producing Old Master Q or Lao Fu Zi ( 老夫子) the popular Chinese cartoon character which first appeared in the newspapers and magazines in Hong Kong in 1962. In the late 30s, cartoons created by Peng Di (朋弟) featuring character resembling Lao Fu Zi have already appeared in the newspapers and magazines in Beijing and Tianjin in China. A 2001 book by a writer from Tianjin containing samples of work by Peng Di bear resemblance to Lao Fu Zi and there were accusations of plagiarism. Meanwhile, Lao Fu Zi and his friends Big Potato,Mr Chin, Mr Chiu and Miss Chan continue to delight both the young and old with their antics not only in comics but in movies as well in the form of cartoon animations, live actors and one even combined live actors and advanced omputer generated imagery or CGI graphics...
