Today’s Awesome Google Doodle: Bonne Nuit Les Petits

Who remembers this awesome cartoon we used to watch when we were kids?

Bonne nuit les petits Marchand de Sable Google Doodle


“Bonne Nuit Les Petits” was the last thing my parents let me watch before ordering me off to bed when I was little. Time has changed – bedtime is no longer pre-news 8 pm these days. For those who don’t remember, the series portrayed two siblings:┬áNicolas and Pimprenelle who were visited by le Marchand de sable (the merchant of sand) just before bedtime as he told them moral stories before sprinkling sand over them as they went to bed.

Well, today’s Google Doodle makes me miss the simpler days of being a worry-less child.
