La Linea

If you had the pleasure of watching La Linea animated shorts by Oslvaldo Cavandoli when you were a wee one (they used to be aired as between-show fillers on TVO) then you'll be happy to know that you can resurrect those old memories from the back of your brain, give them a good dusting and relive those happy times courtesy of the internet. For those of you who have the misfortune of never having seen a La Linea short then there is hope for you yet. The simple animation featured a very intense little man drawn out of a white line on a solid colour background that varied based on his mood. The little man communicated with his creator in an unknown language often demanding that certain arrangements be made for him and his creator always obliged. There's really no way to accurately explain the pleasure I get from watching these little shorts. You can find quite a few episodes by doing a search on YouTube or DailyMotion.

Thanks sharelle! I was trying to explain this to a friend the other day. Now I know what it was actually called. TVO was so great back then, Read all about it, Dr. Snuggles, Great Space Coaster (was that on TVO?) and of course the Hobo Clown who taught me french. Ecoutez!
