Cape Town – What really happened to Sarel Seemonster?

South African TV viewers will be able to find out on Thursday at 19:30 during an insert on Bravo! on kykNET (DStv 144) in which puppet maker Hansie Visagie will once again bring life to TV characters such as Liewe Heksie, Haas Das and Sarel Seemonster.

The iconic South African puppet TV stars, from the heyday of South African television seemed so real, until they all simply disappeared from our screens.

An entire generation of millions of now-adult South African TV viewers who grew up watching, loving, and being shaped by children's television as the first childhood television generation when TV started in South Africa in 1976, will now be able to find out what happened to those puppets.

Viewers can tune in to the weekly entertainment magazine show to see their childhood TV friends on television again – a little bit more worn after so many years, but definitely still alive.

Sadly one by one the shows which once sparkled with amazing television puppetry were cancelled by the SABC. 

The once world class puppeteer television skills and local TV cottage industry which existed in South Africa during the seventies and eighties went silent.

Bravo! went in search, and Sarel Seemonster might just puff some smoke through those yellow nostrils again come Thursday evening.
