Ikabod Bubwit (literally "Ikabod the Small Rodent", "Ikabod the Small Rat", or "Ikabod the Mouse") is one of the most noteworthy[1] and most memorable[2] comic book, comic strip, and cartoon[3] characters created in the 1980s by Nonoy Marcelo, one of the foremost cartoonists in the Philippines.[2][3] Ikabod Bubwit himself is considered as the most famous mouse character created by Marcelo.[4] In the comic strip Ikabod, Ikabod Bubwit was the representation of the humorous illustration of the socio-political woes of ordinary Filipinos, and the comic strip itself was used at times by Marcelo in re-imagining and portraying Filipino political figures, including Ferdinand Marcos, Cory Aquino, Joseph Estrada, and Gloria Macapagal Arroyo.[3] Ikabod Bubwit was portrayed by Marcelo as an “irreverent mouse” with “funny antics” who lived in Dagalandia (literally "Mouseland" or "Ratland").[1][5] Ikabod’s hometown, Dagalandia, was described as a “recast” of “the Philippines as a nation”[4] with “an apt mirror image for the turbulent setting of the Philippines” during the present and in the past.[2] The satirical comic strip about Ikabod Bubwit ran from the late 1970s through 2002.[4]
