The entire second episode in one illustration

Everyone in the family pitched in for this one. Can you spot the parts of the drawing prepared by BooBooKiki (3 years old), SuperChicken (10), and ClipClap (a.k.a. mummy)?

Nassim’s Alternate Universe: The Water-Bloated Hot Pink Hen and the Crocodile (Season 1, Episode 2)

In this episode, we discover Superchicken’s alternate universe for the first time. The story resembles the one in our universe, told by ClipClap. But it also takes unexpected twists and turns… You won’t believe who ends up fighting the crocodile in this episode…

The original crocodile

So we blindly listened (non-sequitur) to contemporary-art-diva-with-a-potty-mouth Marie Boisseau and headed for to the Louvre this afternoon to see the exhibit The myth of origins, from Hercules to Darth Vador (Mythes fondateurs. D’Hercule à Dark Vador). It’s a small exhibit that ends in a cul-de-sac, but then leads you to other parts of the museum. Of course, 10-year-old SuperChicken was into it because of the Star Wars reference… And guess who turns out to be the primordial mother, who nourishes the living and brings forth the earth? A crocodile, bien sûr!


Cette sculpture représente la mère primordiale qui nourrit les vivants et fait jaillir la terre. L’artiste a donné à ce grand crocodile une forme proche de la réalité, soulignant la puissance de l’animal tout en montrant son côté protecteur. (Culture iatmul, Papouasie-Nouvelle-Guinée, 20e siècle. Bois, pigments)

This is a sculpture of the primordial mother, who nourishes the living and brings forth the earth. The artist has given this large crocodile a near-realistic shape, accentuating its power while displaying its protective side. (Iatmul culture, Papua New Guinea, 20th century. Wood, pigments.)



The bubble-gum pink hen breaks out of the henhouse (Season 1, Episode 1)
