"De vloek van Woestewolf" ("The Curse of Wolf Castle"), tracks the extraordinary adventures of Dr Kroch, healer of all ailments, wounds, bites and fractures, and his assistant Valet. When a coffer full of gold, with a letter pleading for help, is delivered to the doctor, he throws the half-indecipherable missive away as its sender claims to be suffering from... gold fever. The next day, when he is called away from his surgery, robbers Oenk and Boenk steal the coffer. There must be something special about this gold, and the doctor decides to respond to the letter and search for its sender: the Duke of Wolf Castle. Does this duke really exist, or is he just a legendary character? Does he live in a castle, or in the old ruins on top of a ghostly rock? Valet is scared, but in spite of a gypsy fortune-teller's warnings, the doctor perseveres: "Ghosts do not exist. Science has an explanation for everything". Written by
One of the famous 60's and 70's Children's TV-series from the Netherlands, along with series such as "Kunt U my de weg naar Hamelen vertellen" and "Swiebertje" are a cut above the rest. I'm sure whoever remembers this series thinks back with fond memories. A wonderful story, magnificently told through imagery part real and part animated. Hope it'll be rebroadcasted or better yet - DVD release.
