La Compète, also aired under the title Pierre et Isa (The Competition aka Pierre & Isa, respectively), is a French sports animated series that originally aired in December of 1991 on channel Antenne 2. While mostly traditionally-animated, it was one of the first French animated shows using CGI.


Pierre and Isa are two winter sports athletes from the (fictional) Republic of Ankor, childhood friends with romantic feelings towards each other. They have formed a team with friends such as their coach Mr Albert, Ernest the nerdy inventor and Floppy their wacky groundhog mascot. They are preparing for the Olympics but they are antagonized by a rival team from the (fictional) Nezir principality, headed by the villainous Princess Ingrid aided by her henchmen Hubert and Carlo.


The series was reaired on the same channel (then renamed France 2) as late as 1997, and at least on satellite channel CFI in about the same year.

Home video releases were very rare and no footage of the show could be found online until two German dubbed episodes were uploaded in 2010 (as Pierre und Isa) by "Kawaiikong" and the French intro in 2012 by "darkn8t1". Nostalgia channel "Télé NostalGeek" uploaded two episodes of the French dub in 2023.

As shown, the series seemed to have had a level of popularity in Germany. To add to the matter, the show gained a Wikipedia entry on its German version while it has none in the French version.
