How Obelix Fell into the Magic Potion When he was a Little Boy: This origin story is narrated by Asterix, who informs the reader that as a child, Obelix was often bullied by other boys, until Asterix, to help his courage, induced him to drink some of the magic potion that made the villagers invincible. When they are caught in the act, Obelix falls into the cauldron and ends up drinking it all, and is thereafter permanently under its influence.
Asterix and the Secret Weapon: A woman bard Bravura replaces Cacofonix as school teacher and 'liberates' the village women, causing the men to leave and live in the forest. Caesar secretly sends a battalion of female legionaries to conquer the village, having heard the Gauls will not strike a woman. The men and women have to settle their differences to overcome this new threat.
Asterix and Obelix All at Sea: Left alone in Getafix's hut, Obelix drinks a cauldron of magic potion. He first turns to stone, then into a small boy. Meanwhile, a group of men have escaped from Roman slavery on board a ship. Together, they travel to Atlantis, hoping to make Obelix a grown man again.
Asterix and the Actress: A Roman actress poses as Panacea in order to steal back Pompey's sword, scabbard and helmet which Asterix and Obelix received for their shared birthday.
