Skrotnisse och hans vänner

For some reason I decided to add swedish subtitles to an old swedish show I grew up with called Skrotnisse och hans vänner. Since there is none to be found. This show has a special place in my heart.

But wow, it took quite some time. I took me about 3 hours (!) to subtitle the first 25-30 minutes. I started to regret it since it's 2 hours and 52 minutes long. But I didn't want that time to be more of a waste than it already was.

It's quite some work, syncing it and stuff. I've never done subtitles before.

I just wanted to share this with swedish learners. Its much easier to learn if theres subtitles, but I couldnt find any subtitles for this so I had to make them myself.

So, It's an old swedish muppet style tv-serie that scared alot of kids, including myself. It still gives me the creeps. I just feel I need to share this with the rest of the world.

You can watch it here (you have to enable the subtitles)

Thanks! First time for me, I kinda enjoyed it but damn, it takes quite some time even if you speak the language. I will probably subtitle more in the future.

Can recommend https://www.amara.org/sv/ if you don’t know about it already for subtitling Youtube videos.

Tack så mycket! I have just seen the first 10 minutes and it seems like a cartoon that is interesting and amusing for adults too :) Plus they speak slowly which is great for learners.
