TV: B is for... Barbapapa By TV Cream Posted on May 5, 2009 Share Tweet Share Share Email Comments ON ITV FROM 1970 TO 1973 SHIT CARTOON of Scandinavian origin concerning a sort of extended family of colourful, shapeshifting balloony blobs. The main two were Barbapapa and Barbamama, with various “character” parts (sporty Barba, sexy Barba) making up the numbers.

Maybe. Scary? Definitely. For some reason, this series scared the crap out of me. This and the opening titles for Doctor Who (Tom Baker era) had me scuttling behind the settee. Reply THX Kling Klang October 9, 2011 at 10:21 pm There was a storyline in this which had the Barbapapa home under threat from a collection of unmanned construction (or destruction, perhaps) vehicles which was pretty scary. I well recall their snapping as they advanced on the family. Reply Damon September 19, 2015 at 5:32 am The pink blob character Babapapa himself would say “all change” when it was time to ‘morph into a new thing. In my head I recall Babapapa looked a bit like Mr Greedy but pinker. And in my head it was French and was on BBC, not ITV … but I was so terribly little. Around 1975 I got a book of Babapapa at my primary school’s book club and imagine that the series must’ve been repeated later than 1973 … else I’ve got the best memory ever. Could be the latter.
