The figure of Pierrot is central to Jules Laforgue's work, not only to the short play Pierrot fumiste (1882), but also to his next collection of poetry.

Laforgue began adopting the fumiste style in 1881, and the Chat Noir was one of the places he picked it up. Willette's early panel cartoon, launched by Le Chat Noir in 1881 and starring a clownish character called "Pierrot fumiste," impressed Laforgue so powerfully that by 1882 he had borrowed the title and the character for a play.--The First Moderns: Profiles in the Origins of Twentieth-Century (1997) by William R. Everdell
Willette publie sur une pleine page du Chat Noir (18 mars 1882) une bande dessinée intitulée « Pierrot fumiste », titre que Laforgue donne à la pantomime en trois tableaux qu'il rédige à la même époque. --Aux commencements du rire moderne: l'esprit fumiste (1997) by Daniel Grojnowski
