Die Sendung mit der Maus(The Program with the Mouse) is a popular German TV program aimed at young children between the ages of 4 and 8; nevertheless, the average age of its viewer is 39 years old. This week Die Maus celebrates 40 years on TV. It happens to be one of my favorite TV shows. The show has a magazine format and consists of several segments, including short cartoons (mouse spots). The mouse spots usually feature the mouse and his friends, a small blue elephant and yellow duck. Take a look and have a laugh.
