On October 2, 2019 it was 30 years ago that the legendary children’s program of Carlo and Irene started at RTL 4 and it was 20 years ago that it stopped. That is why the Museum of the 20th Century in Hoorn presented a wonderful exhibition and this book!
All the spicy highlights pass by: the lonely beginning of RTL in Luxembourg, the creation of the duo, the colorful Saturday morning, the films, the dream wedding, the Mega Days, the characters, the songs, Spicy Times, images behind the scenes, the Spicy Pop Concerts and the farewell show on October 2, 1999 and many more. TelekidsHilarious fragments of the legendary set are regularly featured on nostalgia sites such as Forever Telekids, Wij van The’90 and EnToen.TV.
The attention on social media and the demand for fragments and stories were the direct reason for this colorful exhibition. Carlo & Irene : “It all started with Telekids for us. Our TV careers and our love for each other as a duo. We are still approached daily by the children about how they once enjoyed the Telekids mornings so much. It’s really great that after all these years there is a retrospective exhibition of that legendary time.”
