series premiered in 1923. Stopped in 1968.
series was a spinoff on a long-running famous Danish
silent film series starring two odd vagabonds, the tall
Fyrtårnet (The Lighthouse) and the small Bivognen (The
Follower). Fyrtårnet is the seemingly clever one of the
two, but he usually manages to bungle things up caused by
the 'helping' hands of his confused companion Bivognen.
The films were internationally exported and won much acclaim. Examples of their names abroad: Fyrtårnet och Släpvagnen (Swedish), Pat und Patachon (German), Long & Short and Wat & Halfwat (English).
