Idéfix (Dogmatix in English) is the canine eco-warrior in the Asterix & Obelix comic book series.

The images to the right are taken from the 1971 episode ‘De Romeinse Lusthof’ (‘The mansions of the gods’). Romans cut down trees in the forest surrounding the small village the comic centers on, to make space for luxurious flats. This causes Idéfix to fall into despair – he can’t stand damage to the woods and has physical fits when being confronted with it.

In this episode, the druid has a solution: super-acorns, sprouting new trees instantly.
