Les Aventures de Colargol - episodes 14 to 21 (1970's)

I used to like this show as a kid although to me it was simply Barnaby Bear, apparently there was a bit more to it than that.
Following the success of the Colargol albums Albert Barillé's animation company Procidis started production on Les Aventures de Colargol, a stop-motion animated series starring Colargol.
The series was produced from 1967 to 1974, comprising 53 thirteen-minute episodes which were broadcast in many European countries. Les Aventures de Colargol was renamed Barnaby when it was dubbed into English and broadcast in the UK by the BBC.
The series underwent another name change when a second dubbed version of the series was shown in Canada (and also in the UK and Ireland), this time as Jeremy the Bear. - Which is interesting because my brother always used to call it that and I kept telling him he was wrong.  Wonder if he would still like an apology all these years later?
