Robbi, Tobbi und das Fliewatüüt

DIG005 LP (limited gatefold vinyl)

release date, Germany: 11th of november 2002

30 years after the puppet sci-fantasy series Robbi, Tobbi und das Fliewatüüt first aired on German television, we are proud to present the first ever release of the original music.

Join the adventure of Tobbi, a small boy and Robbi, the robot in their Fliewatüüt on the ground, in the water and in the air. Together they built a vehicle which can swim, fly and drive and takes them on their journey. In 1972 the producers of the series used a break-through filming technique: A combination of back projection and puppet acting. Today this series is regarded as a true classic of German TV-history.

The highlight of the series is undoubtedly the music by composer Ingfried Hoffmann, Germany’s best organ player in the 1970s. For Robbi, Tobbi und das Fliewatüüt he used contemporary sounds like Beat, Funk, Jazz and Bossa Nova to create a unique and extraordinary soundtrack. Hoffmann is also very famous for composing the music for other TV-series like Sesame Street and Hallo Spencer.

Includes the complete original music by composer Ingfried Hoffmann, selected dialogues of the characters and brandnew remix by The Frank Popp Ensemble. CD and LP come with exclusive preface by composer Ingfried Hoffmann, rare behind-the-scenes shots and lots of of essential infos and photos.
