Cartoons in German: Pettersson und Findus

I found this cartoon (about 12 minutes long) delightful:

It is adapted from stories that were originally in Swedish, but as far as I am able to judge, the German text and the voice-acting are first rate. If you've read through the Stories section on Duolingo, I think you'll find the language is at about the same level – very understandable and satisfying for a learner, without being artificial in any way. And of course there are many more episodes out there.

I think this comment from YouTube says it best:

Für Peterson Und Findus wird man nie zu alt

Hi Jacob,
