On his never-ending quest for fame and glory, Runkel the Knight wastes no opportunity to demonstrate his skills. The problem is, he doesn’t have any!

Luckily, his anarchic squires Dig and Dag, known collectively as the Digedags, are on hand to protect him. And their help is so desperately needed as the evil Count Kirk constantly orders his henchwomen, (Grapple-Hook-Dina the Pirate, and Charlatania the Alchemist), to sabotage Runkel’s claim-to-fame, time and time again.

When crazy Digedag-ideas combine with supernatural potions and Runkel’s clumsy antics, even the smallest everyday affair is destined to escalate into absurd, slapstick mayhem!

Based on the characters from the Mosaik comics by Hannes Hegen.
