'Spip, Couette & Calot' (from the animation series by Pikaboo, Oliver Auqier, Dreamwall Studio and Dupuis)

We’ve had some weird stuff before in the “It’s Official” series, but it doesn’t get much weirder than this. Spip, Couette & Calot is a 3D animation series about the adventures of Spip, along with Spirou’s creepily-come-to-life bellhop cap (Calot) and Seccotine’s… pony tail (Couette, who’s represented as a tiny Seccotine head on legs). Seriously, W!T!F!

Clearly intended for very small kids, with episodes from 15 to 30 seconds in length (they aired on the Belgian TV station RTBF in 2011), the point of this nightmare creation is nevertheless hard to fathom, and I’m not sure I want to try. Maybe it’s better to just move along and pretend that this thing doesn’t exist.
