A lovely little kids' story of its age
We Hungarian kids simply loved this one. We never cared the poor FX like Majka's head "sparkling" by a simple Christmas sparkler fixed to the back of her neck, and so. Czechoslovakian kids' series ruled our world, only matched by some Hungarian cartoons like "Cat City" or "Vuk". I definitely will show this to my kids someday, and explain why it's still great even if it doesn't have any CGI - simply because it's all believable, and kids can just think along the story. No dragons, no Pokémons and no intergalactic warrior-demigods - just a little girl and some friends.
It's just sad how most of the actors in this series ended up when they grew up. Zuzana Pravnanská, the little girl portraying Majka has been married twice, but her husband beat and raped her, and finally she got addicted to alcohol. This is all anyone knows of her fate. It's said she had three children, but nobody knows where she is now, or what is she doing. Fact is that she made her last film in 1984, and that's been already quite a while.
