Madicken is a Swedish girl from the upper level family, growing up during the time of first world war which did not include Sweden. She lives happily with her family, experiencing the world and making brave and crazy things.
An 8 y.o. Swedish boy always gets into trouble despite good intentions and afterwards ends locked up in a shed. He lives on a farm (before electricity and cars) with his mom, dad, sister, maid, best friend the farmhand and an old woman.
The Melkersson family decides to leave the city for the summer to rent a house in the Stockholm archipelago. They come to enjoy the simple life there and all adventures that come their way together with resident family, the Grankvists.
Nostalgic value is what saves this series from being completely forgettable. In my opinion only one TV series based on Astrid Lindgren's books was worth seeing, and it was Emil i Lönneberga. This show is only recommended if your kid is restless and you want to kill some time. No memorable characters, no compelling plot lines, and no hilarious jokes or sidekicks, but the series does have a soothing and innocent atmosphere that small kids will enjoy.
The plot concerned three families, mainly their children, in a small community called Bullerbyn (Noise Village) somewhere in Sweden. Cute, like I said, but only in small doses.
