Did You Know?
In Germany, Switzerland and Austria, where "The Persuaders" ("Die Zwei") was wildly popular, this series was dubbed in an irreverent way, ad-libing a lot, thus departing from the original scripts and using very funny, often absurd colloquialisms and phrases. (For example the speakers even improvised jokes about their own dubbing work in process). Because of that, in Germany, it had more of a comedy element to it, more so than its original version, making the characters even more quirky and lovable. The German dubbing owes a big part of this show's success and popularity in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. (The same thing happened there with the dubbing for Starsky & Hutch). Other countries, such as France, would follow the German model. Tony Curtis even asked Rainer Brandt, the German speaker, to write the dialogs for the next season, but the series got canceled before this could have been done. See more
