98494 Marsupilami           Discovered 2000 Oct. 27 by J.-C. Merlin at Le Creusot.
Named for the comic-strip character created by the Belgian cartoonist André Franquin (1924-1997). A playful, gluttonous wag, the Marsupilami first appeared in Jan. 1952 in Spirou and Fantasio magazine, where it shouted out its first "Houba!"
