(Op 16 maart 1941 verschijnt de eerste Tom Poes strip met als titel Tom Poes en het geheim van de Blauwe Aarde in het dagblad De Telegraaf. Tom Poes is de fictieve hoofdfiguur en is een kat, bedacht en getekend door Marten Toonder. Aanvankelijk betreft het een kinderstrip, voor jeugd vanaf 10 jaar. De eerste verhalen worden geschreven door Phiny Dick (de vrouw van Toonder) en de illustraties zijn van de hand van Marten Toonder. Aanvankelijk is Tom Poes de hoofdfiguur in de strip. In het derde avontuur getiteld In den toovertuin stapt een zekere Heer Olivier B. (Berendinus) Bommel de verhalen binnen. Met uitzondering van het 17e avontuur zal heer Bommel een vast karakter worden in de strips en te zijner tijd zelfs tot hoofdpersonage uitgroeien.)

(Op 15 april 1947 wordt Radio Nederland Wereldomroep opgericht. Alhoewel de Wereldomroep in 1947 is begonnen gaat de geschiedenis terug tot vroeg in de 20e eeuw. Nederland werkte destijds aan radioverbindingen met de koloniën en aldus ontstonden radiozenders als Radio Kootwijk. Later, in de Tweede Wereldoorlog was radio voor de Nederlandse regering in balling van vitaal belang om het volk toe te spreken. Het Radio Oranje werd door de BBC vanuit Londen uitgezonden en was voor veel Nederlanders een stem in donkere dagen. Radio Oranje was na de Tweede Wereldoorlog voor de regering een belangrijke reden om de Wereldomroep op te richten.)
