Learn Dutch: Ja Zuster, Nee Zuster

Once upon a time (in 1966) in the Netherlands, there was a wacky tv show.  It was about a bunch of wacky people living together.  Every show had a few songs and many singles were released and hits to be had.  20 Episodes and 58 songs!!!

Sadly only ONE EPISODE EXISTS!!!!  The type of film used was more expensive than the actors and sets put together, so it was REUSED for other shows.

It was considered "A Resting Home Full of Noise", the title itself translates as "Yes, Sister, No, Sister".  Nuns being nurses in the Netherlands.  Plenty of older people, although there seem to be plenty of strange young people on the show as well.  The plot seems a little thin, but it is kind of like watching a version of the Monkees in an alternate universe.  Same spirit, same time, different culture.

There was a movie done in 2002, trailer here:

If you like the idea of Dutch songs from the 60's, go to:
http://www.jazusterneezuster.nl/hits and try to find a song called "De Twips".  IT IS FABULOUS!!!  There is no direct translation of the title, but it is a great dance song!

If you liked that, navigate to the full list of their songs:

"He He Wordt Wakker"  (Hey, hey, wake up, here is the baker)


Go to the Official site (in Dutch, ask Google to translate it for you, if you are afraid to click randomly)

Or get wikipedia to translate its page.
