Synopsis:

Puppet series about the inhabitants of Asblikfontein (“Trashcanville”), where discarded objects come to life. The main characters are Oscar, a cheeky but lovable rabbit, and Knersus, the prehistoric pterodactyl with a taste for rabbit meat. Knersus lives in a cave with his three sets of spare teeth, and it's here that he makes his wicked plans to catch Oscar and to annoy the inhabitants of Asblikfontein. Oscar’s friends are knight and inventor Prins Poggenpoel, who went off course during a dragon hunt and was never found; Snorkie the little dragon; and Marietjie the pretty rag doll. The second series introduced Wonderwoef, a dog with a love for dancing and many magic tricks up his magician’s hat. Oscar was based on a children’s book by Norman Dahl, and the TV series was a co-production between the SABC and IDTV. A 1977 series by Tyne Tees in Britain, Oscar the Rabbit, was based on the same stories and characters.Puppet series about the inhabitants of Asblikfontein (“Trashcanville”), where discarded objects come to life.
