TV nostalgia: Maxime Denommée was fascinated by The Little House on the Prairie

Although his outdoor activities and his work on the farm did not allow him to spend much time in front of the television, Maxime Denommée had several areas of interest, as evidenced by his many memoirs master key, The little house on the prairie… and the fight!

Maxime, which youth program impressed you the most?

master key. I have two sisters, so we identified with the three main characters [Passe-Partout, Passe-Carreau et Passe-Montagne, NDLR]. I remember making wooden necklaces for them that they got personally. At that time they were on tour. We had seen her in the Farnham High School auditorium.

What are your fondest television memories from your childhood?

My fondest childhood TV memories were watching Little House on the Prairie as a family. I wanted to be Charles Ingalls [joué par Michael Landon, NDRL] once grown up. I wanted to be a carpenter or carpenter. It turns out that I work with wood regularly.

Did you watch a lot of TV when you were young?

I haven’t watched that much TV. I played outside and worked on the farm with my father. On the other hand, alongside Passe-Partout and The Little House on the Prairie, I loved wrestling, Sundays at 11am, hosted by Édouard Carpentier. With the nice Rougeau brothers and mean macho man Jake “The Snake” Roberts. Without forgetting the duel of the titans: Hulk Hogan against the Ferré Giant.

Is there a character that influenced you?

I really enjoyed Esteban in The Mysterious Cities of Gold. He was very brave. And the documentary finale of the episodes fascinated me. It was mysterious to the kid I was, but so educational. I would like to see that again today.

Is there another song from a show that you remember?

All Passe Partout Songs. And I still sing the most beautiful rainbow.

Is there a character you would have loved to play for children?

I would like to play a character like Monsieur Craquepoutte [joué par Denis Houle, NDLR] in knock-knock-knock. I like likeable curmudgeons.

Which universe should the children discover?

I want to introduce universes like Sol et Gobelet. Fire kids’ imaginations with next to nothing instead of bombarding them with information and ultra-stimulation. I find the cartoons broadcast on Télétoon unbearable and intoxicating.

What do you think of today’s youth television?

I really like the work of Télé-Québec. It is so important to have educational programs that trust children’s intelligence and encourage their imagination.
