Anyone recall the name of an old french TV series which revolved around the lives and adventures of these kids who lived in the same apartment complex? There was a girl who had 2 goldfish named Plic and Ploc. Another episode featured 2 kids delivering food to a neighbor in the same building by using a basket and rope. I saw these shows in French class in middle school. Anyone recall the name?

Thanks!

Oh, that sounds so familiar... Was it a TV show or a movie? Was it based on a book? Oh, oh, oh....

Wow! You had French class in middle school? If I were given a choice I would have chosen Japanese, then I wouldn't have to read subs or be subjected to horrible dubs. Aaargh!!!

It's killing me because I know I've seen this shot of the groceries in a basket being pulled up to a window. This also happens in a children's book I loved as a kid, Astrid (Pippi Longstockings) Lindgren's Lotta pa Brakmakargatan (Lotta moves out)... I remember watching this French film and thinking, "Oh that's just like in the Lotta book..."

If anyone cares, I loved "The Red Balloon".

Okay, I've solved this problem... almost a year, but it's Small Change by François Truffaut. I'm pretty sure this is where I saw the groceries being pulled up with a rope, and here is proof about Plic and Ploc. Just go to that page and do "find" for "Plic" or "Ploc"....

I think you're right. I thought of that movie as soon as I saw the part about the groceries. If I ever have a kid, I'm going to give him a giant baguette to carry around. I hear it makes them breakproof.

Which, the bread, or the kids?
