-Comment: Main character Lutz Bosselmann as Peter ~ 6 yo (?) in buckskin Lederhosen with suspenders (pictured on top and pic 3 and 4 on right, often shown), also at least 3 other, partly older boys in Lederhosen, thereof one in smooth finish Lederhosen or most likely nappa (pic 2 on left). Also a lot of others in shorts.

This is a typical and good DEFA family film, not a real fairy tale but sort of and also a bit like a Heimatfilm at the beginning and end. Many Lederhosen scenes and some are very good. Novel by Fred Rodrian, screenplay and directed by famous by Herrmann Zschoche.

Rating almost 7 but only 6 because of the young age of the main character. I think I have seen it on TV many years ago. Now available on DVD and currently on YouTube. 51 minutes, no trailers.

Update: I forgot also the main character riding in Lederhosen at the beginning.
