And now we come, at last, to the final installment of the Middelboe Chronicles – appropriately enough, a story about stories: The Boy Who Had No Story (“Animated Tales of the World,” 2003, from Ireland) – and, incidentally, the third story in a row posted here to deal with (inter alia) Noah’s Ark.
Of the 75 Middelboeverse episodes I’ve been able to identify, I’ve now posted 73 here – omitting only Moby Dick and Twelfth Night, which seem to be unavailable online.
And while we’re on the subject of animated adaptations of Irish legends, I want to put in a plug for the remarkably beautiful movie The Secret of Kells (a French-Irish-Belgian production, not part of the variously Welsh-Russian-Spanish-Hungarian Middelboeverse, but clearly a worthy rival thereunto):
