Pop culture eternal
There's a TV detective who's really 16 years old but looks 6 years old, can speak in various voices through his bow tie, and uses the name of a detective story writer: Conan. The boy detective started as a comic-book character. The books were so popular that they were made into an animated cartoon for television. Then the television episodes, in turn, were issued in book form.
