Background notes: The series Fodring Forbudt (direct translation: Feeding Prohibited but the the correct translation would be Don't feed the animals) started in 1980 in the Danish newspaper Politiken. The cartoonist Gantriis who wrote the series Livets gang i Lidenlund had become sick and the paper needed a replacement until Gantriis returned. After Gantriis returned, the series went on hiatus until 1986. The strips from Politiken were collected in a strip album from the company Interpresse in 1984, and in 1986, Fodring Forbudt returned as a comic with new material, also from Interpresse. The series ran for six issues until 1987 and contained various strips with animals. The strips were collected in two albums from the small Danish publisher Ultima in 1994 and the series has not been published since then.
