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

The character originally debuted in 1948 as a kangaroo, but was redesigned as a more canine looking character in 1952.[1] The comics series was originally published in the comics magazine Cucciolo, as a filler intended for the younger readers.[2][3] It also named a short-lived eponym comic book series, published in Italy by Edizioni Alpe.[3]

The comics feature an unlucky and always hungry tramp, initially portrayed as kangaroo and that over the years assumed more human appearances.[2][3]
