If you grew up in France, you would be very familiar with the Shadoks‘ world. This cartoon was on TV about 50 years ago on a daily basis and delighted children and adults alike. The Shadoks‘ philosophy was to keep pumping to solve any problem which might arise.
It is somehow quite appropriate in our home as today we have had the 5th swimming pool water pump installed in almost the same number of months. Mind you this is only a temporary pump to repace the other temporary pump which was installed yesterday. The brand new pump we had to purchase and was installed 10 days ago was defective and is being sent back to the factory under guarantee.
I say, send me a few Shadoks. They would keep pumping and pumping and pumping.
Does anyone remember the Shadoks?
