Trude is taking her flatmate to Chicago! Their episode “animal haven” is part of the digital screenings of the International Childrens Film Festival CICFF . The festival begins today and ends on November 20th. Trude and Tier are also bringing their new friend: A pig they found on a transporter on the highway.


This Sunday, Tier wants to win a trip to a tropical island. But just getting the right answer to the quiz does not guarantee him his dream trip. Maybe there is a different way to relax on an island? And maybe it doesn’t even require getting on a plane.
Watch this episode this Sunday on “Sendung mit der Maus” to get into the vacation mood, no matter where you are right now. You can also currently watch all episodes of Trudes Tier, both old and new, on the Kika page.


This year Germany’s biggest children’s film festival is happening in the traditional way and if you go along you will see two of our films screened. There will be one episode of ‘Rico und Oskar’ and the premiere of the latest episode of ‘Trude’s flatmate’. The festival takes place from May 29th to June, 4th. If you go in person, you will also get the chance to meet Trude’s voice Ruth Macke, who will be here to talk about her work as an actress and voice talent. She’s quite a character.


Our series ‘Trudes Flatmate’ has a new slot on German TV. Starting today, KIKA is going to broadcast two episodes per day at 6 p.m. All existing episodes, including six brand-new ones, will be shown within the next two weeks. To celebrate the occasion, we also created a new, colourful title sequence that you can watch today for the first time. We hope you like it!


This weekend a lot of Easter celebrations are taking place. Trude however will be celebrating in a more unconventional way. Her Flatmate, in the role of the Easter Elephant, will organize an Easter Egg hunt with a difference.

You can watch the episode on Sunday at 9:25 in this week’s “Sendung mit der Maus”.


Real gems can be found in garbage. Tier is happy to collect all those free items that other people don’t care about anymore. Only his flatmate Trude is not too happy about his discoveries when tires, canisters  and other rubbish all end up in their apartment. Hording or Kondo? What will it be?
The episode “Sperrmüll” airs this Sunday on Kika and das Erste. It’s also available in the broadcaster’s media library.


Trude’s flatmate hurt his finger. Now, he is looking for help in a hospital. He befriends a boy who’s also not feeling well. But that boy’s sickness is not visible. Trude’s flatmate realizes that a quick fix with a band-aid won’t do the trick. The show “Sendung mit der Maus” is presenting this episode within a TV-special focussing on children’s mental health this Sunday on “Kika” and “Das Erste”. The episode was awarded with a Robert-Geißendorfer-Preis in 2019. In Germany you can also watch the episode online.


Tier has a real sweet tooth. Be it desserts, candies or chocolate bars: all make him really excited. Trude is certainly not happy when her dad visits them – fully loaded with piles of cake. But before she can intervene, Tier already takes his more than fair share. Oh dear dad! Watch Tier’s reaction this Sunday in “Sendung mit der Maus” on German TV.


Tonight the final of this year’s European Championship is taking place at Wembley arena where English and Italian boys celebrate their finest skills. When Tier’s enthusiastic neighbor Axel tries to teach him a lesson on how to kick the ball like a pro, Tier couldn’t care less. It decides not to waste its evening with a tosser and bottler but rather prefers to kick the ball in his backyard where football never has left.

You can watch the episode “Fussball” on youtube .


Each year public broadcaster ARD awards productions of high quality and an innovative approach. We are happy to say that this year our series “Trude’s Flatmate” and our short film “Swipe Swipe” were honored with this award. 


This years’ edition of Stuttgart’s animation festival ITFS is starting online today. You can find all information you need to watch the programs on the festival’s website. We are happy to be part of it with five of our films:
SWIPE SWIPE by Bummelkasten, Shadi and Johannes, “Fireworks” and “Klickhit”, two episodes of TRUDE’s FLATMATE directed by Klaus and Johannes, our first episode of RICO & OSKAR “Alles Banane”, directed by Micha and one episode of BOOTS & PAWS “Nicht gesund” directed by Klaus & Moni.


Everybody wants to score highest at miniature golf. But it’s only fun if all are playing fair. Trude and Tier can agree on that. Still sometimes you need to bend the rules a little to improve your game.
See how Trude and her flatmate Tier do just that this Sunday in “Sendung mit der Maus”.


To celebrate the 50th birthday of “Sendung mit der Maus” broadcaster WDR is going to air a selection of films that represent the last decade. Two of studio soi’s shorts have made the cut: One episode of Trude’s Flatmate from 2013 where Tier nicks an excavator from a construction site. The other one is “Swipe Swipe”, a music clip  from 2019. You can watch both on Sunday, March, 7th at 8:30 am on DAS ERSTE. The Trude episode is also available in our youtube playlist.
