Marie-Charlotte was a puppet show series that originally aired on French TV channel TF1 in 1982 and was re-screened a few more times in the 1980s. It was a slice-of-life series, centered on a little girl, Marie-Charlotte, who would discover many facts of life with her parents. It ran for an unknown amount of three-minute long episodes.
The puppets were the creation of Jean Godement, a puppeteer whose many works were common sights on French TV in the 1970s and the early 1980s. Unfortunately, the vast majority of his shows have not resurfaced. Marie-Charlotte is one of the most obscure shows, and very little evidence of it subsists today, even on the internet. Only a handful of screenshots are available and no footage can be found.
