Here is the star, it's Barbapapa

I had for some reason mentioned Barbapapa to joystormer once (although I can't remember why). It was a cartoon I remembered from my childhood but she had no idea what it was. Apparently it was on in 1973 and 1974; this would explain why she couldn't remember it.

I did a web-search today and could only find one reference (someone had it listed as his favourite cartoon). I realized I was probably spelling it wrong (and so was this guy). I was thinking it was Baba Papa. Oddly enough I remembered some of the title song (really). So I did a search on phrases of the song ("Here is the star it's" "shapes and sizes" "all of the other"). This worked!

And now for your enjoyment meet the whole Barbapapa family.

And the theme song in many different languages.

One thing I have learned from this is that when I say a cartoon was cool, I am soo wrong.


I had no recollection of this cartoon either, so I checked out your link. Ummmmmm... wow.....

Josie and the Pussy Cats was always a favorite of mine. I was also partial to Force Five, Star Blazers, Thunder Cats and an occasional episode of Transformers.
