Buddies, The (Series) (1967-1968)

Two Canadian astronauts on a lonely refuelling station demonstrated bilingual tolerance-when they weren't hoarding food capsules and oxygen canisters or ejecting each other into airless space. Quebecois Latuque (who wore one) was a sentimental slob who melted when Mama Latuque made her weekly phone call ("Bi Bi...Bi Bi...do you love your mother, Bi Bi...?"). The Anglo, incompetent, rubber-faced Wilbur frequently crashed his bicycle on the way to the launching pad. The Buddies were also featured in episodes set in the Old West. - TV North, Peter Kenter
