The 400 Blows, as seen on "Monsterpiece Theater".

The 400 Blows, or Les Quatre Cents Coups, is a 1959 French film by François Truffaut. It is a film about an ordinary teen in Paris, thought to be a trouble maker by his parents and teachers. The French title is a reference to the French expression "faire les quatre cents coups", which means "to raise hell", but the English title is a direct translation, missing the meaning.

The film was spoofed in a "Monsterpiece Theater" segment of Sesame Street. The spoof is a take off of the American translation, and involves Grover attempting to blow out the candles on his Birthday Cake.
