Barbabravo (in French: Barbidur) is a male Barbapapa, and one of the main characters of Barbapapa. He is one of the seven Barbababies in the Barbapapa family. He is red with no additional accessories, though when he dresses up as a detective he wears a purple hat.

Official Description[edit]

"Barbabravo is a sportsman."

"He is very strong and likes to win. He also likes to lead and loves to eat."

"With his Sherlock Holmes' outfit (hat and magnifying glass) and the help of his faithful Lolita, he plays the detective."

"Barbabravo is a little too pleased with himself, but he is a good fellow."[1]


Barbabravo is an energetic, athletic young boy who thinks highly of himself. Because he is somewhat self-centered and sees himself as a leader, at times he lets this get to his head.



Barbabravo and Barbalib have similar personalities in the aspects that they both regard themselves as leaders and enjoy being in charge. As a result, they sometimes get into fights.


He is typically seen with the main family dog, Lolita, as she is faithful to him and enjoys being around him.

Barbabravo's name is a reference to his athletic personality - "bravo" is something one might say when cheering for an athlete at a sports game.

His French name, "Barbidur," is derived from the French word "dur," which can refer to a "tough guy"[4].
