Oui Oui! It iz Freanch. Awgh hawgh hawgh.

I am so happy. I found some Chapi Chapo videos on Youtube yesterday. Oh happy day! So, I will share one of them with you. I know that they originated in France in the 70's.

It was named "Chapi Chapo" as a play-on-words with the French word, chapeaux, which means "hats". Both of the main characters wore oversized hats that matched their clothing. In the theme song they say, in French:

"Guess who is Chapi.
Guess who is Chapo.
Who of us is Chapi, Chapo.
That is entirely in red Chapi.
The blue is Chapo.
But we are like twins..." (rough translation)

So, the one in red is Chapi and the one in blue is Chapo. {ya, I totally cut and pasted that from wikipedia...I am not ashamed}

Have a good Weekend!

I've never heard of it either... seriously, you have an amazing memory! And it's opened up all these memories in me of shows I watched way back when...

I love the show Fifteen on Nick with Ryan Reynolds and also a show called Swan's Crossing or something like that. Sarah Michelle Gellar was on it. Fun stuff!

Have a great weekend!

You have an amazing memory. I don't remember much of the tv I watched as a kid. I really don't remember many shows made for kids back then. I'm jealous of all the Disney and Nick shows are kids get to watch these days.

Have a great weekend.
