Youth series based on the popular Trompie book series by Topsy Smith, about the adventures of Trompie Toerien and his friends Blikkie, Dawie and Rooie. Together they’re known as the “Boksombende”, and their mischief and grand schemes often land them in trouble. They live in Kwaggaberg, a fictional town based on Heidelberg in what is now Gauteng, and the TV-series was shot in Heidelberg and Johannesburg. Shortly before Trompie aired, director Jan Engelen warned that the series was not an exact version of the books, originally published in the 1950s, but had been adapted and updated to suit its 1980-audience.
