Sculpture 'The Little Sandman' in Erfurt, Germany

“Please take a seat but be careful, don’t fall asleep!” This sculpture in Erfurt, named Little Sandman (Sandmännchen), refers to a German children’s bedtime television programme using stop motion animation.

It happens to be that both parts of Germany, East and West, had broadcasted such a series with slightly different figures:

  • “The Little Sandman” in the FRG (BRD) > Youtube
