This series is amongst the first I remember from Dutch television back in the '50s. The song I remember most was "Zeefje waar ben je gebleven", as much as "Zeefje (a name) where have you gone". Zeefje was one of the main characters in the series. Don't look for deeper meanings, series in those days were mainly about archetypes. My grandmother used to sing that song in her moods when we came to look at Wednesday's television afternoon for children. We didn't have a TV ourselves back then; we (my sister and I) always went to her place to watch so my grandma could spoil us with fried potatoes, candy and self-made orange popsicles. Many, later known as famous, Dutch actors featured in that series but that's the story behind many of these series. Thinking back and trying to recall what's been done there I must say it's minimal, one camera recording all live is not a perfect condition for a perfect delivery but it was the beginning... How to compare that to nowadays series or movies is impossible, you're bound to put the bar too high to remain objective. So what are the instruments by which you can measure the validity of a series like that? Your guts, it's what left behind in your memory stripped of the need to compare but filled with the rather subjective impact the series made. Enough said.
