Interview with Tommy Krappweis, author of the awesome Mara und der Feuerbringer-trilogy* and inventor of Bernd das Brot (a German Children’s TV-character that makes Eyeore look cheerful)
"Bernd das Brot has been on German TV since 2000. What does that tell us about Germany?"
"A lot. I don’t know what exactly but a lot."
Yes, one of the most popular kid's TV-shows (that is also loved by adults) is about a really sad bread.
*as well a hilarious book about camping and an equally hilarious one about his time as a stuntman in a Wild West theme park in Southern Germany
I just found that post in my drafts (there were a surprising number of posts in my drafts and I didn't remember making a single one...most of them aren't relevant anymore but as I just mentioned the Mara-books in my favourite Fantasy-novels post I thought I could post this one)
