The municipal office in charge of permits for any kind of Christmas decoration. Under the obscure leadership of the Obersenatsrat, the magistrates Breitfuss, Weber and Miss Knackal torture the population and, of course, Santa Claus, who has to assist as “unskilled worker”. The first truly successful sitcom series of Austrian TV. 4 seasons, 34 episodes - still enjoying frequent reruns.

HS: "When two of the co-writers also play the leading roles, chances are good that a new format works. However, everyone of the many who helped me bring this beloved madness to its goal is responsible for the success. Sometimes I was truly surprised that ORF broadcast the series without any censorship."
