Storyline

Bamse is a big yellow teddy bear who lives in his secret hut on a very secret location deep in the forest. Having the mind of a 6 year-old he is a bit naive and quite demanding at times. He likes to play games with his friends, especially if he is center of the action. His best friends are the mute Kylling and the innocent Ælling (Danish for chicken and duckling). He also receives frequently visits from the ever travelling nomad Luna, and Aske who plays the guitar. Written by <nathue@hotmail.com>

This is childrens-TV at its best!
30 December 2002 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

Of all childrens-shows I've ever seen, from all over the world, this is probably the best (non-Henson). The two main characters are Bamse (a yellow bear) and Kylling (a yellow chicken). Over the years other characters have come and gone, like Luna, Ælling (Duckling), Pernille, Aske, etc.. Bamse lives in a very secret little hut out in the woods, where he's got his easy-chair, a few books, his boots, a plant he likes to water and talk to, a pink skirt, and the little stool he build himself which his guests get the questionable honor of sitting on. For those not from Scandinavia, who probably have never seen this show, all characters are living people, Bamse and Kylling are two (professional) actors dressed in costumes and not puppets or cartoons.

What makes this show so great is that it's not only for children. No matter how old you are you can watch it, laugh at it, and be dazzled about how these characters reflect everyday real life in their own child-like, naive, and curious way.

Bamse is good at heart, but still he's somewhat of a possessive jerk. Like "it's my chair, so you cannot sit in it" or "I found this bike so only I can ride it", and stuff like that. This usually is at Kylling's expense because Kylling is the exact opposite. He looks up to Bamse and would gladly share everything with him. One of the best quotes from the show, which describe their relationship the best would probably be this by Bamse: "An agreement is; I say what we do and you say yes" However, Kylling is Bamse's best friend, even though he sometimes treat Kylling like dirt.

It's not really an educational show, except for the brief safety-issues like if Bamse is about to hit in a nail with his hammer he would turn to the camera and say: "When hitting in a nail I have to be careful not to hit my paw", he would giggle, and then hit his own paw. Or when he would climb his ladder, he would make sure the viewers know ladders are dangerous because it's easy to fall off of them, which he of course ends up doing anyway. Lots of slapstick routines in this show.

You cannot have a childrens-show without songs and music, so of course that's included as well. Like the bee-buzzing song, the song about being lost in the wilderness, the Yd-Yd song which is my favourite, it's about the sound Kylling makes when he has found a worm. And of course, the brilliant rain-song.

I would best describe "Bamses Billedbog" as Laurel & Hardy for kids.

This is childrens-TV at its best! 10/10
