The series was also broadcast live in English as The Plouffe Family, on CBC Television the following year and ran on both networks until 1959. The series was revived in the 1980s as a miniseries. The series was based on the novel Les Plouffe, by Roger Lemelin. It chronicled the daily life of a working-class family in the years following World War II. The family included patriarch Théophile, a former provincial cycling champion who had settled into life as a plumber, his wife Joséphine, a naive but kind-hearted mother who doted on her adult children Napoléon, Ovide, Cécile and Guillaume.
