Jean Tourane was a French filmmaker and artist that worked almost exclusively with live animals. In 1957, he released The Secret of Magic Island, his first feature length film. Mark and I discuss all things Jean Tourane, including his children's television series, Saturnin, which was later edited into Dynamo Duck for Fox Kids. Come for the tale of the little duck that could, stay for the terrible French accents we provide.
