"The legend of Tim Tyler : the boy who sold his laugh" was a German kids drama. It had spooky music that sometimes resembled a 70's steamy movie, and was about a lad who sold his laugh to an evil baron, for the ability to win any bet, no matter how crazy the bet was. For example, he would bet that it would rain sweets - at which point a vending machine exploded and it literally rained sweets! The Series revolved around Tim trying to get his laugh back from the evil baron. it was cheesy with bad acting, but as a kid i was hooked! Now many years later i think, why didn't he think of just betting the baron would come and give him his laugh back? a great show overall!
