I was a young boy, some 13 or 14 years old, back in early 1970's when I occasionally watched in the afternoon, after school, some episodes of this series. I can still remember how much I liked this film. That's why I still well remember after all this years not only the name of this series but the main characters and some more. However it didn't last much, perhaps just a few episodes, therefore it's possible many people can't remember it or just didn't have the chance of seeing it. What I did like the most was the quiet atmosphere, there was no fantasy but at the same time there was something magic and some mystery, also not a lot of people involved and it took place in humid Paris outskirts in autumn, lots of fallen leaves in the ground, with the two men, the old man and his assistant following an investigation, perhaps they were private detectives, I don't know, living in a sort of French country house with a garage full of staff. They used to wear raincoats, then, after talking inside the house about what to do and where to go they were leaving the place riding a motorbike with a sidecar. Non of them were wearing crash helmets, not so common at the time, but instead old fashioned glasses the driver and both of them a sort of leather caps for the head. It's a sort of film you don't often see, probably devoted for a minority and not for the big audience, perhaps that's why it wasn't a long and very popular series, though for me, even not having seen a lot of it, I still gladly remember it. It's a film one always would like to see in DVD or watch in again on TV .
