Colargol by alitta2
Colargol by alitta2


I made this gift for one of my Polish pen-friends who had his birthday yesterday.

Colargol was a stop-motion animation created by Albert Barillé (who was also the author of the famous cartoon series Il était une fois... / Once upon a time...) and Tadeusz Wilkosz.
The show was produced in co-production with his company Procidis and Polish animation studio Se-Ma-For between 1967 and 1974, having a total of 53 episodes.

After the end of the series, it had 3 other movies made in Poland: Colargol na Dzikim Zachodzie (Colargol in the Wild West) in 1976, Colargol zdobywcą kosmosu (Colargol, the Conqueror of Space) in 1978, and Colargol i cudowna walizka (Colargol and the Magic Suitcase) in 1979.

Although it was aired in many countries including my homeland, I don't remember this show having been aired on any Hungarian channels, and besides the intro I  haven't found any videos that would prove it was, but there was a voice cast in an old TV guide magazine for the show, so I believe it ever has been aired.

Hope that you like it anyway!

Colargol created by Albert Barillé and Tadeusz Wilkosz belongs to Procidis and Se-Ma-For studio.

TeeJay87I remember watching those stop-motion cartoons back in the 1990s - they were pleasant in watching, though had one main flaw: the episodes almost always ended in the most interesting point of the story. Sure, it was made to attract the audience's attention to watch the following episode, though I've never been fond of such a cheap way of keeping the audience.
Though I won't deny - it was a good cartoon for its period. :)

alitta2Yeah, there is an example for the same for such in Hungary as well: a similar stop-motion series called Misi Mókus kalandjai (literally Adventures of Squirrel Misi) that was about a squirrel boy who escapes from home because of a dispute with his parents, so he travels around the world just to go home in the end as he has homesickness in the middle of the series.
It was still a good show though, especially thanks to the great dubbing and the figurines created by Ottó Foky (he was the most notable stop-motion animator and director so far, even his major work TV bear is still popular today, as there was a scandal when a redesigned version was about to replace it).
