Serafino is the title character of an Italian comic series created by Egidio Gherlizza.

It debuted in 1951, published in the comics magazine Cucciolo, as a filler intended for the younger readers.[1] [2] It also named a short-lived eponym comic book series, published in Italy by Edizioni Alpe.[2]

The comics feature an unlucky and always hungry tramp, initially portrayed as kangaroo and that over the years assumed more human appearances.[1][2]
