Biography

Die Sendung mit der Maus (The show with the mouse) is a famous children’s series on German television, airing uninterrupted since 1971. Its goal is to encourage children to actively participate in life, to ask questions and to shape their own lives through taking action.
The show first aired in 1971, and is shown in a weekly Sunday morning slot, usually at 11:30 in the ARD and the ARDs / ZDFs children’s channel KI.KA.

The format is aimed at younger children, and the language used in the show is a version of german that refrains from using “big words” and long sentences which might confuse children. More complicated concepts are broken down into smaller parts which then are explained in a way easily understandable and comprehensible to young children. However, due to the long running of the show, many of the show’s early viewers are now in their twenties, thirties or even forties who fondly remember the show from their childhoods and encourage their own children to watch the programme, thus contributing to the show’s lasting success and impact on german society.
Each show consists of a similar pattern of short featurettes, separated from each other by a short mouse cartoon.

The show always starts with its iconic theme music, unchanged since 1971 and recognised throughout the german population.
