Whilst our December infosheet last week covered all things Christmas, we’d like to introduce you to one of our favourite winter-characters….. the Weihnachtsmann!
Now everyone knows who Santa Claus is, but this particular cartoon Weihnachtsmann has his three helpful elves – Trixi, Jordi and Guilfi – and a polar bear – Balbo. Unfortunately the Weihnachtsmann also has a neighbour, Grantelbart, who is not a fan of Christmas or the Weihnachtsmann and repeatedly attempts to ruin Christmas with his troll, Gugor.
The series first featured in Germany in December 1997 and has since aired every year leading up to Christmas on the German TV station Super RTL. There is a total of 26 episodes and you can find all of these on YouTube, starting with Episode 1 “Die magische Perle.” To watch it, just follow this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DKcNNkLXbKg
Throughout the episodes you’ll learn about the elves’ magical powers, the polar bear’s clumsiness, Grantelbart’s love for rock music and the many talents of the Weihnachtsmann!
We hope you love this show just as much as we do! 🙂
