Lurchi, unser Salamander
Lurchi was (is?) the name of a fire salamander in a comic book series that advertised Salamander Shoes when I was a kid. Whenever you went into one of their stores, you got the current issue – which meant one went there a lot more often than one needed shoes, really. Each and every comic book always started with the words “Lurchi, unser Salamander, und die Freunde miteinander” (Lurchi, our salamander, and his friends, together…).
