Status: Partially Found

A Licas e o Zé was the first Portuguese animated series, airing on RTP (currently RTP1) during its infancy in the 1950s. The show premiered in 1957, and it is unknown for how long it was on TV.[1]

The show was animated and written by Gustavo Fortuna and directed by Artur Ramos.[2]


The show followed the adventures of the main characters, Licas and Zé and their dog. Unfortunately, there isn't much detail about what the adventures consisted of.


Similar to the BBC, preservation was not in the mind of RTP, at least until the 1980s. As of September 2020, only the show's intro (with placeholder music, since the original music was lost) has been made available to the public.
