Crazy Credits

During the opening credits, the Dutch character played by German actor Reiner Schöne is listed as 'Van der Brecken', which is the correct Dutch capitalization. But in the end credits he is always listed as 'Van Der Brecken', which is incorrect. See more »

Finally on DVD!!!
20 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My sisters and I watch this every year. Our VHS tapes that my Mom recorded long ago are so, so worn out. I was so excited to find that they are releasing a region 2 version!!! I wish I lived in Europe!! We always go through and make a character list and assign ourselves and our friends roles to play in the movie. I used to be Isabella, but this last time I had to be Van Der Brecken. We talk about Long John all the time too. This really is one of the greatest childhood memories along with Gummi Bears. I hope they are quick in releasing a Region 1 version because I don't want to buy another DVD player. But I may have to. This is the greatest series ever and I love Jim Hawkins and Ben Gunn!!
