This is a show from the wonderful mind of Michael 'Bully' Herbig. A compalation of different sketches including Abahachi und Ranger or Unser Traumschiff. With actors such as Michael 'Bully' Herbig, Christian Tramitz and Rick Kavanian.
This lavish, impudent, adult fairy tale takes the viewer from 18th-century Braunschweig to St. Petersburg, Constantinople, Venice, and then to the moon using ingenious special effects, stunning location shooting.

Because no one thought of shooting a 'Making of' or something similar, Wolfgang Stumph allowed the production company to use private video tapes he had shot on the set in 1990 for the "Behind the Scenes" material on the DVD release of this movie and its sequel. See more »
"Go Trabi Go" is a movie that consists of two elements: It is the story of a travel, but also a comedy. The Italian landscapes and sights are shown in beautiful pictures when the trip of the Struuz' passes camping sites, nudist beaches (a new experience for the people from GDR), lakes and finally Rome. Their guidebook is a diary from Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (Mr. Struuz is German teacher), their car a Trabant. This typical Ossi-car is one of the funny elements. The owner of the car is the father, he loves his car (which he calls "Schorsch") and this leads to many funny moments. The main comical sources are the archetypes. All the wessi's clishés towards the ossis and vice versa are put together and packed into figures, situational humor and funny dialogues. The film has many highlights, when the society of German revue artists and comedians appear in the film (e.g. Diether Krebs telling the shocked Udo Struuz 109 jokes about Trabants). I enjoyed viewing the film and I think not only people with knowledge about the wessis and the ossis will do so, too. All in all a wonderful story about a family getting away from the ex-GDR to see how the world out there really is...
