Kerneels se Konsertsaal

TV series, 1977

Variety puppet programme for children, in which Kerneels invites artists to perform in his theatre. Each programme features three to four guest artists, including comedians, pop stars, opera singers and dancers, as well as Kerneels' pianist, Apie Maestro. There's also the ambitious security guard Pierewiet, who's convinced that he has what it takes to perform on stage. But Kerneels doesn't agree and has to chase Pierewiet off the stage regularly. When he can't get him off, he calls Skoen ('shoe'), who thinks he's a dog and will bark and snap at Pierewiet's heels.
