Tram commemorating Toonder
Marten Toonder, writer and comic book artist, would be 100 years old this year. Who does not know brainchildren Ollie B. Bommel
and Tom Poes? A special tram decorated entirely with Bommel drawings is in service throughout Amsterdam to celebrate the Toonder commemoration.
Have you already seen it?
For the fans, we have put a large image of the working drawing online of the tram decoration that you can look at or download.

Above, you see Captain Wal Rus, Tom Poes and Mr. Ollie, taking a ride in "their" tram. These are actors
from Opus One who are in the musical De Nieuwe IJstijd (the new ice age), which is a tribute to the stories of Marten Toonder.
