No, when Nils first appeared on the Dutch television, I was no longer a child, although I love to act like a child at times. I love animation in general, and so I had to watch this too.
The Japanese are known for their animation, but it doesn't always work out, and sometimes I felt dissatisfied while watching some of their adaptations of western stories.
Nils Holgerssons adventures however, where brought to the screen with so much love, that as an adult I couldn't wait for a new episode to begin. Watching poor Nils trying hard to do his best to become a nice boy again, often not believed or trusted by the animals or humans he encountered... Even the use of the colors helped to make it into a big screen drama, though at times very funny.
When Nils finally became a big boy again, and he had to say goodbye to his friends, the geese, I almost couldn't stop myself from having a tear in my eye (and that for a grown up guy). It shows, you don't need real drama on screen, with real people. Even animation can touch the heart!
