Trivia

After the 16th season, Samson's portrayer Danny Verbiest chose to end his commitment to the franchise. He was soon replaced by Peter Thyssen, however the production of new episodes was postponed in order to give him the chance to practice the necessary puppeteer and voice skills. In the end, it was decided not to produce another season, although other 'Samson en Gert' activities such as the yearly theatre shows still go on. The series was also followed by a film and several TV-specials. See more »

9 August 2007 | by (Genk, Belgium) – See all my reviews

Samson & Gert is the series where all Belgian children grow up with. In the beginning the creators made quite some effort to make this into a fantastic series for children. The characters were pretty believable, or at least for that kind of show. But over the years everything got pretty bad. Good characters as Joop Mengelmoes, Miranda DeBolle and 'De Burgemeester' (allright, he was still around at the end, but it was like he was playing somebody completely different) left and stupid (and I mean STUPID) character (like Eugène, Frieda and the 'afgevaardigde van de minister') took there place.

In the end it became unwatchable, just like all the other series Gert Verhulst created with his 'Studio 100'. I miss the old days. The sad part is that this series still plays each day on Belgian television, but only the later part of the series! We want the old ones back! Back when it was fun for young AND OLD!
