Fanfan Dédé

Network: TVA Television Network

Broadcast Run: 1975 to 1985

Broadcast Medium: Television

A children’s morning program, hosted by André Richard (Fanfan Dédé), featuring marionettes, songs and stories. The host would create the impression of speaking to each child individually by addressing them as Fanfan at Home. Hanging up letters of the alphabet on a clothesline to form words gave this program an educational dimension. It was broadcast from 1975 to 1985. The program eventually came to an end because of a copyright dispute between TVA and the program host André Richard.
