Shipwrecked on an uninhabited island, Robinson Crusoe fills his time in either building a shelter for himself, or by reminiscing about the years he spent at sea and the adventures that led him to where he is. The months roll by and the hardships become easier, especially with his herd of wild goats, the ship's dog and a friendly parrot to keep him company. But one day he comes across a strange footprint - friend or foe? Note this was an unusual Anglo-French production and Robert Hoffmann is Austrian. There are two surviving, and very different versions - an English language (dubbed) version with 13 x 28 minute episodes and a German language version with 4 x 80 minute episodes. They are very different edits, with different musical soundtracks and many different scenes, which is all of great interest to fans of this series. Both are available on DVD, although sadly the German version does not have English subtitles available (and vice-versa).
