Need a list of cartoons in phrench. Simplistic, but somewhat more intellectual. Detectives or some sweet story about animals are preferred.

My purpose is to raise interest to phrench from my daughter, because I remember learning italiano myself by reading dozens of Diabolik books (mom of my friend had them in kitchen) and watching italian movies (they are all simplistic).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diabolik

I see that her teacher is awful and my girl has no motivation (as well as majority of her class) to learn that language.

Not necessarily a cartoon per se, but I have very fond memories reading Le Petit Prince. Simply written and lots of illustration, and would definitely classify as intellectual.

- Asterix of course, but the jokes in Asterix are very phrench - goes way over anybody's head. That includes half of phrench people.

- Tintin

- on the more girly side, Natacha the stewardess

- also, Gaston - simple short comics.

Don't know any more, I'm afraid.

Jeez, with Natacha I will speak perfect french myself.

With Tintin I tried to learn Dutch, but found the plot boring (perhaps because the language is above the basic level). Will try anyway. Spillberg made a animation movie about Tintin. Good start.

Many thanks to both of you!

How old is your daughter?
I would recommend the classics
Barbapapa

https://fr.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbapapa_(s%C3%A9rie_t%C3%A9l%C3%A9vis%C3%A9e_d%27animation)

il était une fois homme
https://fr.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Il_%C3%A9tait_une_fois%E2%80%A6_l%27Homme

and (it's a bit Phrench, so check it yourself first)
Chasseurs de dragons
https://fr.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chasseurs_de_dragons_(s%C3%A9rie_t%C3%A9l%C3%A9vis%C3%A9e_d%27animation)

If we are talking comics, then Yoko Tsuno comes to my mind.

Edit: Lucky Luke, Yakari, Les petits hommes, Boule et Bill.

If very young, may be Babar may be of interest.

If you are not living on the edge you are taking up too much space.

Additional thought. Not really a comics but I would mention le "Petit Nicolas". Extraordinary illustrations by Sempé and great text by Goscinny (creator of Astérix). Do not go for the "modernized" version with poor text and computer-made illustrations. She may want to watch the cartoons derived from the modernized edition though.

More things to consider!

@pj Yes, I meant comics, not cartoons. She is 14. Performing well at school except French. She needs little bit more motivation.

So far, I will focus on Tintin, Asterix and Gaston.
"Chasseurs de dragons" comics seems really cool! Very promising, she will like it.

In addition:

Les Schtroumpfs (The smurfs)
Spirou & Fantasio (especially Franquin-era)

@nikol

In that case your thread title
phrench cartoons
is misleading.

As it starts to be the case here in NP. Sad

N.B. If she is 14, you cannot go wrong with Le Petit Nicolas.
BTW, the French are big Japanese Mangas consumers,
you should find what you/she wants there

Ok. I made a correction of the title.
Anyhow your help was not wasted - a minute ago I bought "Chasseurs de Dragons, Tome 1"

Also, I recalled "Ludovic detective" (Ludo) - set of criminal cases (riddles) to solve. Published in comics style.
Par example

That's phrench for you. Not just phrench, but phrench in the 70s. It's like phrench squared.

I forgot Lucky Luke and the Smurfs were phrench as well...
