U is for URMEL!

Urmel? You are probably wondering what the heck Urmel is? lol...Well "Urmel" was one of my favourite TV shows when I was a little kid. It was a puppet show, with Urmel being the main character from a children's book written by Max Kruse. The story was about a science professor who had developed a method of teaching animals how to talk, because of jealousy of his peers he had to leave his home and move to an island with a orphan named Tim and his housekeeper, a pig, named Wutz. On the island the professor opens a school and every animal on the island is attending to learn how to speak.  One day a prehistoric egg washes ashore and Urmel, a dinosaur, hatches. The little dinosaur is raised by the house pig and learns how to speak. Through his childhood Urmel has to face many adventures, mainly trying to escape from hunters, who have learnt of the existence of the dinosaur and are out to capture him.
