‘Pumuckl's New Adventures’ Enchants Viewers Across Germany

Pumuckl captured German audiences last Christmas with up to 18.5% market share among 14 to 49-year-olds. The most watched episode attracted 1.88 million viewers aged 3+. On Boxing Day, viewers watched seven more episodes throughout the afternoon, securing the ratings win for the time slot, with up to 1.71 million viewers tuning in per episode.

Fans were eagerly anticipating the next chapter in the little kobold's tales and Pumuckl's New Adventures had already enjoyed a successful streaming launch on RTL+ in early December, as well as a significant success at the German box office. The cinema preview of the series quickly climbed into the weekly top 5. To date, over 350,000 people have seen the new adventures of the iconic little kobold in German cinemas.

Pumuckl has been a cult classic in Germany, Austria, and even Spain for over 60 years, providing funny and thoughtful stories to children and adults alike. In Pumuckl’s New Adventures, Florian Brückner takes on the role of Master Eder's nephew, who takes over his uncle's workshop where Pumuckl lives. The character of "Pumuckl" has been carefully modernized, with cabaret artist Maximilian Schafroth now providing the voice of the little kobold. As an alternate option for all nostalgic fans, Schafroth’s voice has also been altered with AI to sound like the legendary Hans Clarin, who originally portrayed Pumuckl.

The series is directed by Marcus H. Rosenmüller (GRAVE DECISIONS) and produced by NEUESUPER for RTL.
