i don’t know how many languages the Barbapapa series were adopted . i still wonder how they may sound like in other languages.

To start with, ‘hulahup, barbatruc’ is ‘hop hop hop değiş tonton’ in Turkish..

Fans are invited.

Hüp-hüp-hüp, barbatrükk! (Hungarian) Jun 17, 2009

My 5-year old daughter and 3-year old son are fans – is that a good enough excuse?

The word "barbatrükk" is quite commonly used in Hungarian. In sports, it means a fairly dumb trick that is fairly easy to counter – but if the opponent falls into the trap, he/she will look a bit ridiculous. It is also used in other contexts for simple but slightly illegal tricks.

Barbapapà in Italian Jun 17, 2009

I can't really remember that much of Barbapapà, but I remember I used to watch the series sometimes when I was a child. And the saying was "Resta di stucco, è un barbatrucco".

Barbatrucco is a word that has then been borrowed in Italian, and it is used in speech. I use it quite oftenicon_smile.gif
The whole idiom is also sometimes used.

My 2 cents
