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

This anime is liberal indoctrination propaganda.
I was no more than two years old when I started watching this anime.
I wasn't even a weeb yet and already I had seen my first anime.
But after re-visiting this anime (it is an anime and nobody believes it, but that's the truth) I found that many of it's themes were racist reductionist simplifications and some quite offensive.
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

I saw this for this first time when I was a kid growing up in the Netherlands, and it was THE cartoon. Like many people already said before, it's a kids show, but it has a lot of mature topics like diseases, starving, crime, death etc.
I really think that this show shaped me in a way because they didn't go out of the way to show children how the world really is.
To me, and this might be the nostalgia talking, was the best cartoon of all the cartoons of my childhood.
Thank you for having this on My Anime List, it really makes read more
