Go To

  • The Other Marty: Since the show was made in Belgium, two versions of the show were released. The original Flemish version "Kabouter Plop" and a Walloon version called "Lutin Plop" in 2007. The entire cast were played by different actors in the Walloon version. As a result some of the episodes had to be re-shot. Starting October 2017, the series got dubbed over the original Flemish language episodes and songs.
