Biography

Bassie and Adriaan are a popular clown and acrobat duo who featured in their own television series, taped between 1976 and 1994 and (as of 2005) still aired in the Netherlands and Flanders (Belgium) television. Before Bassie and Adriaan went on television they were a successful acrobatic duo who performed in many Dutch circuses. The television series consistently feature the duo, from time to time assisted by a parrot called Tweety, a dog called Lara or a small robot named Robin. Mostly aired on public television by broadcaster TROS, the series then switched to commercial broadcasters such as Kindernet and later on the Dutch version of the American children’s channel Nickelodeon.

The plots of the ten-to-thirteen-episodes-long series center around the duo getting involved in a criminal scheme by not-so-intelligent bad guys. Bassie and Adriaan are then falsely accused and spend the rest of the series tracking down the criminals and turning them over to the police. In many episodes their adventures lead them to exotic places in the south of Europe, mostly in Spain, the Canary Islands and Greece. Well-known crooks in the series are “B1”, a mafia-like character, “B2”, a nearly deaf and slow-moving criminal, “B100”, a loyal but very unlucky detective-like person, “Handige Harry” (“Handy Harry”), a producer of dud bombs, “Vlugge Japie” (“Fast Japie”), a famous jewelery thief, and “de Baron” (“the Baron”), the evil mastermind of the gang. There was also a season that played in America and even one across all of Europe, all filmed on location.
