RUNKEL AND THE DIGEDAGS

Meet RUNKEL OF RUEBENSTEIN, a true knight of passion, who doesn’t hesitate to throw himself into danger and prove his courage. However, he is also a total clutz and a manchild!

Luckily, his squires, the two anarchic helper-kobolds DIG and DAG, are there to protect him.

Their help is desperately needed, as the evil COUNT KUCK sends out his henchwomen GRAPPLING-HOOK-DINA the Pirate and CHARLATANIA the Alchemist to sabotage Runkel’s fame again and again. When crazy kobold-ideas mix with magical potions and Runkel’s clumsy antics, even the smallest everyday affair is destined to escalate into absurd slapstick mayhem!

Based on the Mosaik comics by Hannes Hegen.
