    Talking about blobby things my younger brother used to like watching Barbapapa when he was little. I doubt if many people will remember it. I have a feeling it did not run for long on TV.

    Babapappa, Babamumma and Bababubba, I remember that. My grandparents had a book about them too. Is from some herdy gerdy country which explains the oddness.

    It's a bit before my time but my Mum made my brother a Barbapapa soft toy when he was young, which might still be in their loft.

    There were quite a few Barbapapa books, which might have been written before the cartoon.

    IIRC it was created by an American living in France.

    I loved Barbapapa. A big pink lump that changed shape.

    Here's a little something I think was shown as part of Swap Shop in the late 70's. I have spoke to people about this in the past and usually get a blank stare back.

    Actually from the late fifties, The Singing Ringing Tree

    Probably Germany's way of getting back at us from them losing the war lol

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    The Fast Show did a spoof of it as an example of Channel 9's programming.
