The series Barbapapa (or "Les Barbapapa" in French)was one of my favorites when I was a small kid (in '73 I was 5).
The idea of a pink blob character and his colourful family who can morph into anything they wanted is very attractive for small children. The stories are simple and funny; little adventures where the transformations of the Barbapapas come in handy for all sorts of heroic and less heroic purposes. The series is quite calm and innocent, not crazy and hyperactive like most modern children's cartoons seem to need to be for some reason. The adventures all usually have a few simple basic moral lessons in them, without being condescending, patronising or irritating. The animations are nice and basic, and for that time quite fluid.
A good and wholesome series for kids from toddler-hood to about 9 years old, or possibly even very early teens.
