Oh, no - what have they done?
18 December 2016 | by mads-72669See all my reviews

Oh, no. What have they done to the original cartoons?

1. The landscape has changed. It seems that Peddersen & Findus have moved from Sweden to South of Germany or Austria. To much sunshine and happiness.

2. The manuscript is now simple without double-meanings. And the dialogue between Peddersen and Findus has only little dynamic counteraction. Nothing for the older kids and adults.

3. A lot of the humor is replaced by clown-comedy. It looks like a show on RTL.

4. Some side-characters are now so stupid, that it is hard to cope.

5. The song are short, but not short enough.

6. Yet, some of the qualities are preserved, thank you. And in this live animated version the backgrounds have lots of interesting and funny details.
