Outro of the cartoon Alfred Jodocus Kwak in german.
Alfred Jodocus Kwak is a Dutch-Japanese children's cartoon character created in 1989, based on a Dutch theatre show by Herman van Veen. Alfred J. Kwak is the main character in the self-titled cartoon series primarily commissioned by the VARA. Compared to other children's television series, Alfred J. Kwak features exceptionally mature and often sad themes. In the second episode, just after Alfred is born, his entire family dies when a car hits them. Alfred then gets raised by Henk, a mole.
The cartoon is also notable for the political themes on which it touches. In the cartoon, Alfred fights against a fascist dictator, takes in refugees fleeing from a country under Apartheid (with white geese and black ducks), saves whales against hunters, and oversees the changeover of his country from an absolute monarchy to a constitutional monarchy. Such themes are far from typical in a children's cartoon, and form a big part of Alfred J. Kwak's appeal. Other episodes have satirised the Japanese love of golf, and criticised countries which have sharp north/south economic divides.
