Paul Buissonneau started his career as a singer with french chorus "Les Compagnons de la Chanson". While the chorus was touring North America with Édith Piaf, Paul left the "Compagnons" and stayed in Canada. He became actor, put on stage many plays and revues, particularly for children (Quebec baby-boomers surely remember his "Roulotte") and made many T. V. appearances. A colorful character, Buissonneau founded "Le Théâtre de Quat'Sous" (litterally, The Four Pence Theater) with actors Yvon Deschamps and Jean-Louis Millette, and actor and singer-songwriter Claude Léveillée in 1955, and on may 1968, he put on stage a happening that changed music and theater in Quebec: "L'Osstidcho", starring Deschamps, singer Louise Forestier, singer-songwriter Robert Charlebois and his wife Mouffe. Other memories from Paul Buissonneau is his character Piccolo, created in the late 60's for a children TV series of the same name.
