Haji Yaqoub is an old classic! Created by Mohamed Al-Mahdi in 2006, the Haji was featured in many editorial cartoons and was the protagonist of a comedy comic satirizing popular topics in Bahrain at the time. The cartoons were published in multiple nationwide newspapers.

Our old friend Haji Yaqoub will be brought back for an upcoming all-Bahraini series of cartoon animations, so stay tuned!
