... this ...?
no it's a character that was only a line (hence la-linea) ... 5 mins long usually and very very clever ... about 100 of these were done .. the artist was Osvaldo Cavandoli. SBS used to run them as fillers (probably 10-20 years ago - hence the reason you probably don't know what it is).

The filmclip of Jamiroquai's latest single is a play on this show, believe it or not. (at least I'm pretty sure it is). Of course it's "funked up" by being in 3D animation, but still... it's quite funny to think about really
The Line, was actually shown on ABCTV as a 5MF(5min filler), as well as Ah Iee A A Oh! (not sure of the real title), the sand drawings. Other ones I can remember are the paper folded swans or ducks (but that could have been connected to the Mr Squiggle Show).
I also remember the orange and blue "Plonsters" as they are now called. They sometimes had black hair or none at all!
I also have vauge memories of a series or one-off show involving octopus like plastcine animations that involved real live people. I think also to it was dubbed. If anyone knows the title I would love to know more about it.
While on the subject of odd shows from the 80s, does anyone remember a show called Professor Poopsnagle (don't laugh). It involved (i think) an old dotty professor who travelled around in a flying red bus with a group of young kids (not very PC these days).
