Trivia

(series 5) The story for this series was based on a radio play which Bassie and Adriaan had made a year earlier. It had included a Chinese character named Ping Poen as one of the baddies, but when the play was turned into a TVseries, this character was dropped and replaced by B2, who was already well known from two earlier televised adventures. The reason for dropping Ping Poen was that Aad van Toor thought the character too unrealistic for TV. See more »

Goofs

The titular crown is said to be the crown of King William II of the Netherlands, which is the official Dutch state crown. After stealing the crown, the Baron puts it on his head, which he shouldn't be able to do. The Dutch state crown is only meant for display during the monarch's inauguration and wouldn't fit on a person's head. See more »

Crazy Credits

The show's leader contains several scenes which were only shot for the leader, in order to make the viewer curious about the story, while never appearing in the series itself. See more »

The BEST EVER
6 April 2001 | by See all my reviews

Oh yes, you won't get any better than this.

Superb adventure and fun in Greece with the dutch masters of children comedy.

Paul van Gorcum steals the show with a brilliant appearance as the villain "the Baron".

The best serie I have ever seen.

An absolute must for every Dutch kid.
