First season "Belderbos" (1964, 15 episodes): Suspicion rises in the quiet little village of Belder when a strange horse back rider arrives in town. Jan Stephorst, in Greece he was called Zeppos, has inherited the beautiful Belderbos castle. He was offered a huge amount of money for the castle, but he declines the offer and starts an investigation on his own to try and find out who is behind the offer. Together with Ben Kurrel and Rita Mees, a student and a baker's daughter, he discovers that the organisation of Baral (with the help of Zeppos' niece Ariane Despinal) is trying to gain possession of the valuable oil reserves underneath the Belderbos estate.

In the first season, Zeppos drove a jeep which was already considered spectacular at the time. In the second season he used an "Amphicar", a German amphibious passenger automobile, which became the Zeppos trademark. See more »

Old-fashioned but still charming
30 November 2003 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Kapitein Zeppos was and still is one of the most popular Belgian television series made for the youth. Made in b/w 4 years before I even was born and in a time the Belgian Television (BRT) still had (or wanted to spend) budgets to make good television series for the youth.

When you look back at now it all looks very old-fashioned and the filming & acting is by times very clumsy (no slang language and every dialog is in perfect theater-dutch) but still it is and stays one of the best television series (Only 'De Kat' was better in my opinion) made for the youth although the story is a bit slow by times.

It's a bit strange to see all those actors who are now 60+ (some of them are even dead) in their younger years. Senne Rouffaer (who's also the director) plays Kapitein 'Jan Stephorst' Zeppos in such a great way that every time when I see him I ask myself the question 'Why didn't they made a movie of the Belgian cartoon character Tintin with him in the part of Tintin ???'

Kapitein Zeppos is a must see if you're thirty-something like me just for nostalgic reasons.
