Carpanta Hambrón, or as better known, Carpanta, is the name of a Spanish character featured in the comic strips and comic books of the same name created in 1947 by José Escobar Saliente.[1] The comics focus on Carpanta's perpetual hunger and his usually failed attempts of satiating it.

The comic series stars Carpanta as the main protagonist and Protasio as Carpanta's friend, along with cameos from other comics such as Petra from the comic book series Petra, criada para todo.[2]

Escobar created Carpanta to symbolize the misery in postwar Spain.[3] It was first published in the 4th number of the Spanish weekly illustrated magazine Pulgarcito, being the first strip Trece en la Mesa (Thrirteen at the table).[2]
