35 years later -- remains my absolute favorite cartoon from childhood
7 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a kid in the 60s, I would see this unusual cartoon pop up from time to time and I was mesmerized by it. From what I remember -- it's set in France, about a fussy little man who suffers the daily degradation of the King's parade passing his house and -- for one reason or another -- as the sweepers pass and clean up the debris -- a big pile of garbage lands in front of his house. No real dialogue to speak of -- just a parade soundtrack, & lots of faux French pomp and silliness. Great use of repetition as his frustration builds -- first trying official channels, where he describes (mimes) the daily parade and the unfortunate outcome -- and then resorting to his own ingenuity to try to outsmart the system. I have never forgotten this one. I can still hear the soundtrack and I find myself longing to see it again! Been digging around and haven't found it anywhere. If anyone knows of a source, please post! This is a treasure.
