On his never-ending quest for fame and glory, the vain knight Runkel seizes every opportunity to prove his skills even in everyday life. The only problem is: he has no skills!

Luckily, on his wooden castle ship live not only the golden crocodile Mutawakkel, but also the two squires Dig and Dag, known as the Digedags. A little bit “fallen out of time” and more modern than the Middle Ages usually allow for, the Digedags think outside the box and help Runkel with ideas that adults would never have come up with!

When the evil Count Kuck once again sends out his henchmen Grappling-Hook-Dina and Charlatania the alchemist to conquer the land, when crazy Digedags ideas combine with Runkel’s bumbling escapades, even the smallest everyday matter escalates into an absurd slapstick chaos! Based on the “Digedags”, the most successful German comic of all time.
