Trivia

According to director Václav Vorlícek, his first choice for the role of princess Arabela was Libuse Safránková, the star of his earlier feature films. Unfortunatelly, the actress was ill at the time of shooting, so Vorlícek cast young actress Jana Nagyová instead. However, because of her strong Slovak accent was Nagyová over-dubbed in post production by Libuse Safránková. See more »

This is a wonderful series that I remember from my childhood. Magic is the word here. All the actors are great but I especially remember Vladimir Mensik. Let's have the DVD now - with English subtitles please!
