Ahiru no Quack, or better known as Alfred J. Kwak is a dutch anime aimed at kids.
But unlike most cartoons aimed at kids, Alfred J. Kwak features lots of mature and mostly sad the,es. Amongst others it deals with various social and political issues, like abuse, or power. Even with all these negative themes, the shows about important values too, like friendship, family and solidarity.

The anime is notable for the political themes on which it points a highlight. In the anime ...our main protagonist fights a evil fascist dictator, takes in refugees, saves whales against hunter and even oversees the changeover of his country from read more

That koala with the heavy accent for instance.
Also, sometimes I wonder what van Veen must have been smoking or if he was on some sort of elephant drugs. Because I'm pretty sure there is no clown living on the moon. People think this read more

This is the FIRST anime serie i,ve seen on t.v as a kid with my sister ( back at the time i din't knew anything about anime, too young, ) but i notice'd that it looked diffrent and more well done background sketckes than any other cartoon i've watched then so far ( i was around 3,5 years old) back in '89. On air on t.v it became a very populair cartoon for the kids and the further the story developed, it went to a darkertwist somewhat offensive with some sign's of WW2 and the rasicm apartheid in back then South-Afrika something u read more
