Le Voyage de la famille Bourrichon (known in English as The Voyage of the Bourrichon Family or The Voyage of the Family Bourrichon) is a 1912 French silent film directed by Georges Méliès, based on a music-hall comedy by Eugène Labiche. It is a comedy in the style of Max Linder, and is notable for being Méliès's last film.
Like all of Méliès's 1911–1912 films, The Voyage of the Bourrichon Family was made under the supervision of Charles Pathé and was planned for release by the Pathé Frères studio. The film was probably completed by Méliès at the end of 1912, and was advertised as an upcoming release in the French Ciné-Journal in May 1913. However, Pathé did not release it.
