In 1998 the Flemish daily De Standaard published a series of articles on the thoughts, ideas and perspectives of boys and girls in modern society.

The cool part is that Tom also referred to a well-known (well, over here at least) iconic use of these characters, namely in the illustration on the back of each album, as used here.
