Comment: Aylin Sengül in blue skirtalls (pictured) in ep s1e2. Maybe also later as teen? Maybe also other actors? At least one man in green bibs. Martin Lindow in blue working coveralls in s1e7/s1e8.

I saw some episodes by coincidence today. I prefer the original 1995 movie starring Constantin von Jascheroff, Iris Berben and Angelika Milster. There is also a 2007 film remake.

Good plot and funny family entertainment, but I don’t like boys with long hair (Lindow). Farm content but probably few farm scenes at least not with this girl in skirtalls. Also some boys at school and cycling, but I don’t know of any other actor in bibs (maybe some older men, maybe in coveralls).

Series is actual running on each Sunday morning at das-erste (place of Mama ist unmöglich). I will check the other episodes as well, but there are better series. 1989 novel by Uwe Timm.

Rating 3-4 for now. Clip is from season 3 also showing a man in green working bibs. One episode (same as pic) is on YouTube. English title:” Rudy the Racing Pig (2008)”.
