    Did anyone else see this tonight on BBC4?

    Was absolutely brilliant! ;)
     
  2. Seen it before, Ms RT has got it on DVD> It's got bicycles and a Citroen H Van, two things of which I'm inordinately fond.
    I love the dog in it, especially when he's trying to bark at the train and the frog at the same time.

    I liked the "car chase" with the "stretched" 2CV's, the now obvious use for a German WW2 grenade as a fishing device, and the "patron" still waiting for the return of the pedallo at the end. ;)

    Last time I looked on Amazon, they did not know of this film ;).

    Don't think I have seen it. Is it foreign? It sounds it.
     
  7. Watch it Noodley. Now. It's brilliant.

  9. Here's a bit of it. Apparently they actually did the music as it's shown in the animation.

    Amazon does know of this film. I think I may have spelled it wrong last time ;).
     
  11. And Here's the opening.

    Location:
    Penarth, Wales
    Looks unusual and good from the clip, but I would get bored if that went on for much longer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
     
  13. It doesn't. The little boy at the end of the opening clip gets a bicycle bought for him and finishes up riding in Le Tour. He soon becomes involved with a sinister ring of gamblers after being swept up in the broom wagon. A brilliant film which only the French could have made.

    It's not up to the standard of "Tom and Jerry" is it?
     
  15. Well, what is?
