D'Après Vous

From 2009 to 2010 I lived in New Caledonia, a French territory in the South Pacific.

D'Après Vous is New Caledonia's most popular (and only) cartoon show. The title translates as "According to you..." or "What do you think?" Each episode is based on a trivia question, highlighting a fact about the country.

The star of the show is Wouk. He is a cagou, a white bird about the size of a chicken. Cagous can't fly, but that doesn't stop Wouk from trying.

I wrote a few episodes of the show, one of which is below. It's in French, with English translations.

What do you think? Mandarins are found everywhere in the town of Canala thanks to...

- Bats

- Snails

- Or Deer?

Answer: Bats! These hungry creatures help disperse the seeds of the mandarin tree.

Some believe that the disappearance of these bats could also cause the disappearance of the mandarin.
