Plouffe Family, The (Series) (1953-1959)

Aka: La famille Plouffe

Plouffe Family, The
The Plouffe Family was a Canadian television drama about a Quebec family that first aired in the French-language on Société Radio-Canada in 1953.

A year following the successful premiere of the original series, CBC programmers decided to launch an English version. The version was essentially the same as its French counterpart, though modifications were made in the script to remove profane and vulgar language and any references to sex. The same cast of actors were used for the English broadcasts which were aired later in the week.

The series chronicled the daily life of a working class family in the years following World War II.
