In 1983 the readers of 'Het Nieuwsblad van het Zuiden' met Kees Kruik for the first time, a cartoon character who, not bothered by knowledge, shines daily shine about current events in general and those of the city of Tilburg in particular. The comic appears in the newspaper for 20 years, and during that period Kees grows into Tilburg's most famous cartoon character. The collaboration ends in 2003, but the comic hero continues to perform regularly, especially in commercial comic expressions of mostly Tilburg companies and governments! In 2015 he suddenly appears again in a weekly column in De Tilburgse Koerier, until 2020, when that newspaper ceases to exist. But Kees remains popular in Tilburg and surroundings, and has therefore decided to share his view on daily life every week from September 2020 on the Facebook - and Instagram page from his spiritual father.
