In 1983 Roland Topor creates with Henri Xhonneux the popular French TV series Téléchat, a parody of news broadcasts featuring puppets of a cat and an ostrich. Henri Xhonneux (1945 – March 1995) was a filmmaker. He used the pseudonym Joseph W. Rental. He is best known for his animation film Marquis and and the surreal television series Téléchat. I’ve mentioned Marquis here.
