Storyline

Pumuckl is a nice and sometimes naughty goblin who used to live with a cabinet maker named Franz Eder. Mr. Eder has had to live through quite some trouble because Pumuckl always was up to do some mischief. The history of "Pumuckl" is going back to the early 1960 when the Bayerischer Rundfunk started a radio series on the notorious goblin Pumuckl. The author of the Pumuckl stories is Ellis Kaut, a resident of Munich, Germany who became famous for having invented that naughty little creature. By 1970 "Pumuckl" was successful enough that his stories were pressed on records. At this time actor Alfred Pongratz was the voice of Meister Eder. Alfred Pongratz died in 1977 and so Gustl Bayrhammer got the role. In 1979, the Bayerischer Rundfunk decided to put "Pumuckl" on TV. The TV series was absolutely successful and is still continued even today even though Gustl Bayrhammer (Meister Eder) died several years ago. Today, Pumuckl is living on a ship that travels the river Danube, and his new ... Written by Max Merbald <max.merbald@gmx.de>

Best children's'TV show ever!
22 June 2002 | by TAEMOSee all my reviews

Pumuckl is an outstanding TV show for children, funny, entertaining and well written. But it is not only for children, but also for grown ups. I am 20 years old and still watch Pumuckl when possible. Children will like Pumuckl's jokes and funny speech, grown ups will realize funny things that as a child one would not understand. For example Meister Eder having a beer with his buddies, talking as if it was a show made for a much older audience. And I am not saying they talk about sexual stuff, just things a child would not pay any attention to, whereas an adult will smile at every single line.

Also very outstanding is the great amount of Bavarian actors and guest actors, for example Gustl Bayrhammer, Ernie Singerl, Toni Berger, Karl Obermayr and many others. Not to mention Hans Clarin as the voice of Pumuckl, who is (was) the only real voice talent in Germany, in my opinion. I doubt that this show and the radio dramas would have been the successes they were, if it had not been for him. One cannot describe Pumuckls voice, it is beyond any normal one. It neither sounds like a child, nor like an adult, it is neither male nor female, just weird and a bit shrill. There is no comparison to it, just like to this show. Watch it, it is more than worth it.
