Rico, Oskar and their friends decide to plant some flowers. With patience and care, they manage to create a beautiful flower garden. However, overnight, all the plants mysteriously disappear. So Rico and Oskar decide to lie in wait at night to catch the thief red-handed.
This spring-themed episode of Rico and Oskar will air as part of ‘Sendung mit der Maus’ this Sunday on German TV.


For this holiday season, we got the chance to create a special of Rico & Oskar. On the first of December their Christmas adventures premiere on KiKa at 10:35 a.m.
Dive into the festive spirit as the kids explore Berlin during the most wonderful time of the year. There’s just one question: Who or what is the Spirit of Christmas, and what happens when Rico, Oskar and their friends stumble upon it? There is a second chance to watch the complete special on December, 17th at 5:25 pm again on Ki.Kia.


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.


At the start of 2021 the second episode of our contribution to the Rico & Oskar TV series will be shown as part of Sendung mit der Maus. This time, the children help one of their friends to overcome stage fright. But in the end it is Checker himself who discovers that it is okay not to have goals as long as you keep on moving. Find out more about the series on our website.


In 2019/2020 we had the opportunity to direct and animate 5 episodes for Rico & Oskar, an animated TV Series written by Andreas Steinhöfel and Klaus Döring. Rico & Oskar is produced by Sad Origami and based on Andy’s novels. The first of the episodes we contributed will air this Sunday in “Sendung mit der Maus” on WDR.

In this episode Oskar states that slapstick comedy does not resonate with his sense of humor. But being a rather clumsy fellow himself, boy oh boy, does he make it hard for his friends to not laugh at him. Sometimes it takes a while to accept what our true calling is. At least Oskar will always get the attention he deserves.
If you are a fan of Rico & Oskar: the 5th book has just been published. It’s a good one!
