Did You Know?
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
