Storyline

Kulderzipken is a fairy tale about the simple farmerboy Kulderzipken who by accident managed to succeed in the first task to win the hand of prinses Prieeltje, the daughter of koning Jozef. Koning Jozef doesn't want Kulderzipken to become the new king, and with the help of the mother of the devil and her son (who is too nice to be a devil) he's constantly trying to throw Kulderzipken out. In every episode there is a new task, or a character destroying the peace, and as always, Kulderzipken saves the day. Written by River4Rain

Kulderzipken has it all.
1 December 2004 | by (Antwerp, Belgium) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best children series on Belgian television ever. It has very funny dialogue, great sets, beautiful costumes, amusing & inventive story lines and Belgium's best actors and actresses. It's not only a fairytale, it makes fun of other fairy tales too. Like when one of the two Gebroeders Grimm remarks that "the princess was poisoned by an apple" the other says that "apples are frequently used to poison people in fairy tales". Every story is basically about something that goes wrong in the castle, sometimes it's a trick the Devil's Mother plays (she lives together with her too-good-to-be-a-devil son in the castle's cellar), sometimes it's just someone who causes trouble. And always it's Kulderzipken who manages to save the day, but every time resulting in Koning Jozef not keeping his promise to make Kulderzipken a king. Because Kulderzipken is poor, he doesn't want him to marry his daughter, but in his heart he loves Kulderzipken as his son. The roles are played by Belgium's finest actors and actresses, and include a wide range of guest appearances, mostly actors and actresses you'd only see in serious roles, now giving the best of themselves in a fairytale character. Due to the humour that applied to children as well as adult, Kulderzipken was very popular and widely praised throughout Belgium.
