TV series, 1979
Children’s series about the raindrops from Wolkeland (“Cloud Land”). King Roelof reigns over Wolkeland and his granddaughter princess Rienkie teaches the young raindrops everything they need to know: how to splash and glide, how to refresh the flowers and how to guard against the Droogtedrakies (“little drought dragons”), Moddermaatjies (“mud buddies”) and the grumpy old northern wind. Some of Rienkie’s students are Neusie, a curious little drop who’s always landing himself in trouble; and Kletter and Klatter, two naughty drops who keep on forgetting to water the flowers. Each episode had a nature- or moral lesson.
