The series is based on the novel by German author James Krüss. It tells the story of Timm, the boy who traded in his infectious laugh for the ability to win any bet. The man who did the devilish deal with Timm is the wealthy businessman Baron de Lefouet, who is even more successful in business now he has Timm's engaging laugh to win him friends. Timm, on the other hand, soon realizes that life is not the same without the ability to laugh, and he sets out to find the evil Baron and try to regain the ability to laugh.
I too remember it like it was yesterday. I've searched and searched for anyone else that remembers it. At last, i've found recognition of what has haunted me ever since. Maybe I too hold this show with too high regard having not seen it since what must be the mid 80's. Since reading your post i went on German ebay and found some box-sets knocking about. I am yet to find out if they have different audio or subtitles. But if they do, rest assured i will do my up-most to a get that DVD into my collection.
Long live Timm Thaler.
Bring it back,
Thanks so much Jamie
