Scene from THE TIGERDUCK GANG (photo © Papa Löwe Filmproduktion 2010)

Hannes, who attends fourth grade at a small-town primary school, doesn’t really fit in with the rest of his class. He can track like a Native American Indian, catch fish with his bare hands and communicate with animals. But in the “real” world he’s a complete klutz, everything he does turns into a catastrophe.

Lucky for him he has great friends: Bergman, his loyal dog, Laika, with her fantastic inventions like machines for time-travelling or cloning, the two mice Tutu and Schischi, and of course the gang’s mascot, the magical Tigerduck.

Their worst enemies are The Gringos, the biggest bullies in school, and Mice-Sheriff Browning, who would do anything to get his hands on Tigerduck and his magical powers.

Together, however, The Tigerduck Gang can master any challenge that comes their way. In the course of their extraordinary adventures, Hannes slowly gains self-confidence, learns to use his skills, and realizes that he has the best friends in the world.
