I love the Professor Balthazar series. Wonderful music, crazy adventures, tales that speak to children (I guess) as well as the children in adults. (How was it Liberace said? The difference between the men and the boys is the price of their toys.)
Balthazar is the Inventor, distant relative to Gyro Gearloose (Oppfinnarjocke) in Donald Duck. It says something (a lot, I´m afraid) about the cold, humorless world of Wikipedia to call him (Gyro) an “an anthropomorphic chicken”.
I think the Balthazar series is over, but here´s a new invention worthy of the Great Professor.
And here´s the Professor himself, in a wonderfully Taoistic adventure (Swedish text). Mission: creating holes!
