The puppeteer became famous with the television died in Lille at 90 years.
Born in 1930, Marcel Ledun discovered very quickly, in the North of France, that he will be a puppeteer: an art that he learned in the early 50's first contact with the troupe of "Little comedian rags", then Louis Pajot, descendant of an illustrious dynasty, the Pajot-Walton's Company, which perpetuates the tradition of the marionette puppet for two centuries.
The television will give Marcel Ledun a magnificent showcase. In 1962, director Claude Laydu called on him to host a daily program for early childhood. It will be "Good night, the little ones!", With Nicolas, Pimprenelle, the sandman and so the famous Teddy bear, who invited a generation of young to go to bed early. Ledun has Teddy bear in this very popular program for two decades until 1976.
