Alicat: i suppose the eww meant yummy..for my lookalike yello cotton candy
Barbapapa was also... yess...
Barbapapa (always knew french was funny and messy...)

Barbapapa is both the title character, and name of the "species" of said character, of a series of children's books written in the 1970s by Annette Tison and Talus Taylor, who resided in Paris, France. The books were originally written in French, and were later translated into many languages. As short cartoons of a length of only five minutes, they reached a broader audience via TV.

Barbapapa himself is a generally pear-shaped, pink shapeshifting blob-like creature who stumbles upon the human world and tries to fit in. The shapeshifting is usually accompanied by the saying "Clickety Click Barba Trick". After various amusing adventures, he comes across a female of his species (more shapely, and black-coloured), named Barbamama. They produce seven children, known as the Barbababies, each a different colour:

* Barbazoo (Barbidou in French), yellow, male, lover of animals
* Barbalala, green, female, lover of music
* Barbalib (Barbotine), orange, female, lover of books
* Barbabeau (Barbouille), black and furry, male, lover of art
* Barbabelle, purple, female, lover of beauty
* Barbabright (Barbibul), blue, male, lover of science
* Barbabravo (Barbidur), red, male, lover of strength and heroism
