Yellow Jacket: The Beach Crazy Cyclist
Yellow Jacket: The Beach Crazy Cyclist is a short stop motion animated show for children made in France. It features the quick and whimsical adventures of a bicycle racer weaing a yellow jacket and his nemesis a black jacket wearing cyclist, amongst other toy characters. The cyclists are always model people but the spectators are toys and models like dolls and crabs. Black Jacket and Yellow Jacket are always at the centre of the plot, with Black Jacket using some devious trick to try to win and Yellow Jacket generally not trying to stop him, letting fate or karma prevent Black Jacket from winning. The show is always set at a beach and at a minuscule level. Sometimes a human will, in stop motion form, enter the show. After Yellow Jacket wins the first half of the closing credits plays then a small continuation gag plays and the rest of the credits roll. The sand is real and the bikes leave trails though much of it is not filmed at an actual beach but in a studio.
