Pif is a dog from the French comic strip Pif et Hercule. He first appeared in 1948 in the French Communist Party newspaper L'Humanité. The comic was later turned into a cartoon and at some point Pif even got his own magazine. For some reason his name was changed to Spiff when exported the English-speaking world. He hangs out with a black & white cat named Hercules, with whom he has the standard cartoon animal friend/enemy relationship. Pif is seen here as an enamel pin from 1991.
