Die Bremer Stadtmusikanten is a Dingo Pictures movie that was released in 1997. It is noticable for being one of two movies to include a live-action narrator, the other being Das Schwert von Camelot.


"Is this all there is to life?" thought the donkey, who was working as a tourist attraction for in the "Animal-Adventure-Park", after his boss kicked him out. And because people again and again told him that his voice sounded lovely, he decided to make a career as a musician and go to Bremen. On his way, he met a dog, whose fate was to spend the rest of his life in the animal asylum, because his old master had died. The dog was a great drummer, so the donkey asked him to come along with him. On their way they met a cock and a cat, who were also living in a desperate situation. Since they too were good musicians, it was only logical that they completed the band. And what nobody ever believed came true. After many adventures, they were finally on stage. Where? Of course in Bremen.

English dub

  • Despite the cover using the same artwork as the cover of the French and German DVD releases of the film from Fun Kid's and Art Media, and the fact that they distributed English dubs of Dingo Pictures movies, the American DVD release from East West Entertainment contains a different adaptation of the story, being a live-action version from 1959.
  • The English dub was particularly lost. In 2018, Youtuber Phelan Porteous found a version on a French DVD and used parts of it in his review. On June 7th, 2020, the complete version was found on a German Art Media DVD by DJ Kaito and posted it onto the Dingo Pictures research team Discord server. Later, it was uploaded to Mediafire and YouTube.


English dub

  • At one point, the narrator struggles not to laugh when saying "poo".
