1 - På en öde ö

(On a desert island)

An animated discussion about what we would eat if we were trapped on a desert island. Apparantly some of the alternatives are 1) Ten living babies, 2) Twenty dead babies, and 3) Kuprik, a chef that we all know. The very first episode of Calle & Anders was recorded at the very end of 2008.

2 - Att äta en arm

(To Eat an Arm)

Calle expresses his constant fear of Anders' cannibalistic urges. Recorded at the same time as episode one, as you might guess. NOTE THAT THIS VIDEO DOES NOT HAVE SUBTITLES
(all the others do though, so keep moving!).

3 - På nya äventyr i diket

(On new adventures in the ditch)

This was filmed on the 25th of January 2009, but non-swedes should know that this is basically Sweden at ANY time of year.

Playing with toy weapons and discussing grammer.

Calle is bored, and decides to annoy Anders for fun. Things escalate.

6 - Jysk


Jysk Bäddlager is a small Swedish company that makes furniture, and for some reason Anders is convinced that it is bigger than it actually is.

How did Mozart die? Where did the Swedish game Kubb really come from? Is Anders a Witch?? All these questions and more are answered in this episode of Calle & Anders.

10 - Absinthe (Calle & Jakob)

Good friends, good times. This could almost be an ad for absinthe, in fact. This was recorded almost a year ago. I find it incredibly uplifting at times!
