Do you remember Flapi, the spanish-basque fluo plastic nose flute produced in 1988? Some of us wondered what such a commercial name could come from...
Well... I found a comic, that was also a cartoon, which was broadcast in Spain from 1979 and featured a couple of squirrels. The two little heroes were names Banner and Flapi (Flapi was the lady), and the cartoon Banner y Flapi.
Could this have been the origin of the nose flute name? The funny thing is that the typo used for both the comics and the nose flute resemble much.
