This page describes content which, while legally created, was not licensed by the Walt Disney Company. Spirou in Ostend (Spirou à Ostende in the original French) is a comic one-pager possibly written by Rob-Vel, and drawn by either him or Luc Lafnet. It features Spirou, M. Papillon and Entresol.


The Moustic Hotel crew spend a vacation day at the beach in Ostende, where Spirou enrols in a sand sculpture contest. Of course, the young rapscallion has no intention of playing fair.
