After stealing the crown, the Baron puts it on his head, which he shouldn't be able to do. The Dutch state crown is only meant for display during the monarch's inauguration and wouldn't fit on a person's head. See more »

Conquering Europe
6 April 2001 | by erwan_tichelerSee all my reviews

This serie is absolute entertainment like all the Bassie and Adriaan-adventures.

In this adventure we see the villains B-100 and Handy Harry for the first time.

Bassie and Adriaan travel all over Europe to find secret packages.

Great fun !
