Barbapapa

What was it about

Barbapapa picture

Barbapapa and his family can turn into anything they want. Each member of the family has his or her own personality. Very good show for the youngest children as each episode deals with another problem they will recognise in a way that is 'morally correct'.

Barbapapa Barbabravo headshot

Barbabravo

With his tools of Sherlock Holms (the hat and the magnifying glass) and with the help of his faithful hound Lolita, he tries to act like a great detective.

Barbabravo is sometimes too proud of himself; but he is a good fellow!

He is a specialist of the science of Nature! He knows all about the various animals and plants, the climate and the bad effects of pollution. In one word, he is a distinguished ecologist.

Barbapapa Barbabelle headshot

Barbabelle

Barbabelle is violet.

Barbabelle is the most beautiful. (At least it is she who thinks that!) She likes jewelry, and perfumes.

She is very afraid of little hairy creatures like caterpillars and spiders, and she faints when she sees one! Barbabeau finds her foolish fears irritating!

Barbalib is an intellectual. She is usually deep in her books and she knows the answer to many questions

She can easily take a superior air. Barbotine often disputes with Barbabravo about who is the leader or boss. She can have a difficult character. Her brothers and sisters have to be careful not to walk on her toes! But she has a good sense of humor!

Barbapapa Barbabright headshot

Barbabright

Barbabright is blue.

Barbabright is a scientist. Neither chemistry, astrophysics, nor genetics are a secret to him!

But sometimes his theories carry him too far and the consequences of his hazardous experiments can lead to catastrophic consequences! Happily, his brother Barbazoo, an ecologist, keeps close watch over his activities!

Barbapapa Barbabeau headshot

Barbabeau

Barbabeau is black.

Barbabeau is hairy. Barbabeau is an artist. Still within the torments of his creativeness, he has not yet found his way through cubism, hyperrealism, surrealism, expressionism or conceptualism!

He is very sensitive! He sometimes gets too quick-tempered with the ironic comments of his sister Barbalib!

Barbalala loves music. She is talented at playing many kinds of instruments. But she is also interested in Botany and ecology like her brother Barbazoo.

Barbalala has a dreamy happy temperment. She almost never gets angry. She has a pacific, calming influence over her brothers and sisters.
