Scope and content
-Sjors & Sjimmie is a Dutch adaptation of the US-comic Perry Winkle. The difference is Sjors (Perry) forms a duo with African born Sjimmie. They're raised by Sally and the Colonel. The Colonel regularly finds himself on the receiving end of their pranks. In return Sjors & Sjimmie are outsmarted by their scheming classmate Dikkie, although they manage to stay the best of friends. In the original version, Sjimmie had stereotyped features, including broken language, but this changes later on as the pair grew into teenagers and civil rights awareness increased.
