The comic was converted into a series by the extremely talented Sofianos family in 1985 for the Greek public television as a puppet show.
This is not your ordinary puppet show. The best the Greek TV and theater had to offer lend their voices. The settings were full of detail and life. The script and dialogue is extremely smart and mature, full of comedy, plot twists, drama, dealing with war, life and death. Character development is top notch and you forget that you're watching puppets after a few minutes.
On the down side, you have to understand Greek fluently and have a good understanding of Greek culture to get all the clever jokes.
If you do, this is one of the best series ever made, in any language. Watching it again, 30 years after its premiere, its still fresh, timeless and amazing.
It really is one of the things where the stars aligned properly, the right people got together and created a once in a lifetime masterpiece.
Thank you for gracing our childhood with such an amazing, influential piece of art.
