This one goes out to my brother Ewan and to any other Ontario kids who were in French Immersion in the early 80s: Téléfrançais! C'est formidable, exceptionnel! C'est excellent, sensationnel! C'est merveilleux, c'est magnifique! Téléfrançais, fantastique! (They really over-sold the show, didn't they?)
I found this video thanks to the "Téléfrançais! The Ananas Fan Club" on Facebook. Tears of laughter are streaming down my face as I watch. Even in Grade 1 we were savvy enough to know the show was beyond lame. Still, I'll never forget the sweet sounds of Les Squelettes.
