Plot:
These twelve episodes (plus a documentary on their making) show various adventures of Floris, a kind of Dutch Robin Hood, and his friend Sindala.
Floris fights against injustices and is always ready to help poor and weak people.

Notes:
“Floris” was a big TV hit in The Netherlands. It created a sort of “Florismania”: three books with his adventures were published: “Het Verraad van Oldenstein”, “Het Beleg van Oldenstein”, “De Vijand Te Slim Af”.

Unicef issued cards with Floris as a subject and kids' comic strips were published, too. From time to time, the Dutch T.V. airs again this series for the new generations.

It was the first time Rutger and Paul Verhoeven worked together, sealing the start of their long professional relationship.

In 1970 a documentary with some 'behind the scenes' footage has been aired by the Dutch TV; it was entitled 'Rond Floris - een kijke achter de schermen'

Two Dutch comics dating 1970 and 1972
