Scribbly is a comic that runs daily in the Dutch edition of the Metro free newspaper, and has done so for the past five years. It is written and drawn by Jean-Paul Arends. Seven albums have been published containing the daily strips. The strip is known for its weird cast, and its tendency for parodizing well-known films and books.
