For fifteen years, "Our Charly" has been one of the most popular family series for ZDF, and a hit in over twenty other countries. At the heart of the story is young chimpanzee Charly, who escapes from a gang of animal smugglers and finds his way to the home of a veterinarian and his family. Charly turns their lives upside down, but with his irresistible charm he wins the hearts of the entire family and often comes to their aid in ways that one would never have suspected.
With now more than 220 episodes, "Our Charly" has become one of the most widely watched classical family series on German TV. After separating from his partner Maren Waldner, veterinarian Dr. Max Henning (Ralf Lindermann) moves to the country in order to realize his long-held wish to open an animal clinic of his own in Potsdam.
