Chaplin & Co
Adults – of course – were conquered by Chaplin’s exquisite talent, but the character was soon adopted by a much younger audience. After all, the forlorn little guy with his funny walk and silly mustache is – first and foremost – a clown! He seems to have endless energy, ever seeking solutions to the endless obstacles life assails him with. His naïve clumsiness - combined with a heroic disposition - enables us to identify Charlie Chaplin with our own childhood… back when everything seemed possible.
Daily life seen through the eyes of Charlie Chaplin could never be dull! Every little mundane event is transformed into side-splitting hilarity. Acute clumsiness and naivety are certainly not helpful when it comes contending with an irritable boss, persuading the neighbor that Chaplin’s house is not the local garbage dump when trying to shake off a bunch of over-zealous cops and even going on a shopping expedition to the supermarket with the Kid.
However, our hero with the toothbrush mustache is always armed with his trademark cane and bowler hat and ready to face whatever life has to throw at him. Against all odds, Chaplin overcomes the trials and tribulations of daily life with humor, dignity and the spirit of adventure.
