PP: People spitting on precious childhood memories by turning them into cash-ins.
Warning: Major rant upcoming.
In the sweet old days of the early 90's there were many classic shows for children.
You had the ever so addictive Thomas the tank engine
The enormous success of the awesome Norwegian theater act (which was turned into a movie) Captain Saber tooth
which had a theme song that was so awesome it still haunts the minds of parents who are forced to listen to it 300k times every day. (it is also great getting drunk to)
You also had the huge Scandinavian successes of the Swedish film adaptations of Astrid Lindgren's
many famous stories.
These movies started in the 70's yet remained popular with children to this very day.
Especially Emil i Lönneberga
(the intro explains perfectly what this show contained) which I blame to be a major reason for why Norwegians generally can understand Swedish while the Swedish generally can't
You also had Postman Pat, Fireman Sam, etc. These shows were creative quality entertainment rather than most of the cash-in garbage you see on children's television these days.
And in the awesome year of 1993, there was made a Norwegian show called "Pelle Politibil"(Pelle Police car).
That funny little Volkswagen went around catching thieves and being awesome and cute.
And like most shows in those days, it had one hell of a catchy theme song.
This show was one of my absolute favorites as a child.
And then, many years later, the revive him as
But that can still work, right?
I mean, he is still catching thieves, right?
...No. He is... he is fighting environmental criminals. Okay, so they try to put some lame environment message.
But like, he is fighting big corporations that are trying to dump their shit in nature illegally, right?
No... he is... fighting two badgers
who for some reason have an hard-on for polluting.
WHAT DID YOU DO TO PELLE, YOU ASSHOLES!
Stop trying to take a dump on my childhood! This is NOT the kinda shit I remember Pelle for!Also the animation is poor.
