A short-file with the Digedags, the 3 stars from the original East German comic book series "Mosaik", created by Hannes Hegen in 1959.
The film was created by fans. Unlike for their successors, "The Abrafaxe" (after the death of Hannes Hegen), no featured film was done for the Digedags yet. :(
The guys did a good job for this short film though. Unfortunately only in German language. I might add some English subtitles one day, when I get around it.
The 6 minutes long film depicts the episode where Dig and Dag first meet the Knight "Runkel" (Ritter Runkel), while they are still searching for their missing fellow Digedag. "Runkel" is part of one series within the series that had multiple side spins with "Runkel" on or off starting with book 90 in 1964 and until book 151 in 1969.
The background story how Dig and Dag actually first met Runkel was told via a "Flashback" in book 97.
