@Phila Adrienne. Barbapapa is a series of children's books written in the 1970s by Annette Tison and Talus Taylor, who reside in Paris. Annette is French and Talus is American. The books were originally written in French (barbe à papa is French for cotton candy, or—literally—"father's beard"), and were later translated into over 30 languages. As short cartoons, they reached a broader audience via TV. Barbapapa is now one of the popular characters that is made into merchandise in some Asian countries, such as Japan. Also a comic book version was created. Both the cartoons and comics sometimes show concerns about the environment and contain environmental messages.

I grew up watching Barbapapa in Japan...is it French!?  I am delighted to know another European show  was in Japan (along with Moomin, my favorite).
