Watch Swiss Family Robinson
- 4 Seasons
"Swiss Family Robinson" is a family show based on a book by the same title. It revolves around the trials and tribulations of a family of four -- Karl Robinson, his wife Lotte and their two sons, Fred and Ernie -- who are stranded on an island after a shipwreck. In addition to this family of four, the only other survivor of the wreck is a girl named Helga Wagner. On the island, they also find a sailor, Jeremiah Worth, who was stranded there seven years earlier in a different shipwreck. Jeremiah serves as a rich source of wisdom and practical knowledge. He is glad to finally have some company and is happy to help them survive and try to live as well as possible in spite of difficult circumstances. Karl and Lotte are both relatively calm, practical people who provide good guidance for their sons and also Helga. She becomes a de facto adopted daughter. Like other series of that era, it focuses on problem solving and treats their situation more like an adventure than a tragedy. The parents are good parents in spite of stressful circumstances. They always rise to the occasion.
