This was my favourite series when I was little. My parents had bought the videos of the episodes "De Gouden Locomotief", "De Zingende Kaars" and "De Minilotten". They had also taped the episodes "De Regenboogprinses" and "De Windbrekers". The only one I didn't have on tape was "Het Laatste Dwaallicht".
My favourite character was, of course, Lambik. I really loved the way he mixed up words and letters, and the dumb things he did. Next to the "real heroes" Suske, Wiske and Jerom, he was the clumsy one who always made them end up in even more trouble...
One could say that this series is nothing to modern animation like Shrek and Finding Nemo, but I don't think kids really pay attention to that kind of thing. The characters in this series are handpuppets and therefore they aren't very lifelike, but at least you get to use your imagination.
This handpuppet-show is probably the best adaptation of the Suske en Wiske comic books I have ever seen. There is also a series of animated films, which is also okay because the characters look exactly like the characters from the comic books, but it lacks in humour. Recently, a Suske en Wiske adaptation with real actors has been made, but neither the characters nor the atmosphere resembles that of the original comics.
I would be SO happy if this series was released on DVD, or at least broadcast again on TV...I am sure kids will still love it!!!
