Storyline

Pumuckl is a nice and sometimes naughty goblin who used to live with a cabinet maker named Franz Eder. Mr. Eder has had to live through quite some trouble because Pumuckl always was up to do some mischief. The history of "Pumuckl" is going back to the early 1960 when the Bayerischer Rundfunk started a radio series on the notorious goblin Pumuckl. The author of the Pumuckl stories is Ellis Kaut, a resident of Munich, Germany who became famous for having invented that naughty little creature. By 1970 "Pumuckl" was successful enough that his stories were pressed on records. At this time actor Alfred Pongratz was the voice of Meister Eder. Alfred Pongratz died in 1977 and so Gustl Bayrhammer got the role. In 1979, the Bayerischer Rundfunk decided to put "Pumuckl" on TV. The TV series was absolutely successful and is still continued even today even though Gustl Bayrhammer (Meister Eder) died several years ago. Today, Pumuckl is living on a ship that travels the river Danube, and his new ... Written by Max Merbald <max.merbald@gmx.de>

Adorable, charming and cute
1 September 2005 | by (Austria, Vienna) – See all my reviews

Ellis Kaut's "Meister Eder und sein Pumuckl" is the most charming kids series ever to grace German television. Pumuckl is a friendly little goblin who can only be seen by the carpenter Meister Eder, since the day that Eder accidentally pinned Pumuckl to a pot of glue. This made the Goblin visible and now the couple live under the same roof. Gustl Bayrhammer's performance as Meister Eder and the brilliant voice-over by Hans Clarin for Pumuckl make the interaction between the real life carpenter and the animated goblin seem totally natural and very cute. In each episode the stubborn and sometimes cheeky Pumuckl learns a lesson in life and Meister Eder teaches him such values as tolerance, respect and honesty. Although the stories always have a moral, it never seems importunate or questionable. Meister Eder is the grandpa every kid wishes for and children can relate to the funny little goblin, while grown-ups can still smile at the adorable way these stories are told. This is absolute quality TV for your kids. I know I'll let mine watch it.
