Poll Suggestion: Bon Anniversaire, Astérix! (60th Anniversaire)

"By Toutatis!", "These Romans are Crazy!", "Ave Caesar!" et caetera...

So many catchphrases and adventures that enriched the childhood of many comic-book readers all over the world. Asterix, the little Gaul is one of the most popular and emblematic character of the French-Belgian school, with adventures that spanned six decades and a dozen of cinematic adaptations, making it one of the most successful and enduring French franchises of all time. Asterix might be the French equivalent to Mickey Mouse, hey, he even got his own theme park in 1989!

The little Gaul's adventures also many catchphrases that became part of everyday language such as "the sky is falling on our heads" or "falling into nk] when you were a child", a reference to the magic potion and Obelix who, as we know, isn't fat but "just well-covered".

Celebrating a milestone year for Asterix, the 60th anniversary of his creation and 30th of his park, which of these cinematic adaptations of Asterix' adventures, live-action or animated, is your favorite?
