Those little creatures/animals/children are somewhat disturbing.

Anyhow, he's using a synthi in his studio here:

Could be that. Sounds like it could be something moog to me also.

An early EMS Putney VCS-3 with DK-1 Cricklewood Controller Keyboard, Eminent 310 Unique organ, Farfisa Professional Organ, Elka Drummer, EMS Octave Filter Bank, at 2:40 something that vaguely resembles an EMS Synthi Hi-Fli, some massive multitrack deck (four tracks).

Geez! What a trip down memory lane! I remember "Chapi Chapo" on French TV in the late 70s. My little sister used to watch it just before Casimir, who sounded just like Jon Anderson of Yes!!!

OMG! Pépin la Bulle! I used to watch that as a very young child in the late 60s / early 70s. I even had a Garatakeu soft toy! And I can't get over the news that Casimir, Pépin la Bulle and Jon Anderson were really the same person! I love those out of tune marimbas at the beginning of the tune.
