Disney animator: Say, we should put a price on this comic. Whattaya

Disney animator: Sounds good to me.

Yes they did - they were a real team. I have enjoyed the Asterix 
stories Uderzo himself has written, but they just don't have that 
special spark of the classic Goscinny/Uderzo collaborations.
