MISTER TWISTER is a family entertainment program based on the adventures of the highly likeable Mister Twister, found in the series of the popular children books by Mirjam Oldenhave that inspire and entertain audiences worldwide. The feel good program is directed at children aged between eight and twelve, but is a pleasure for the whole family. MISTER TWISTER is positive, light-hearted, creative, open-minded, encourages team spirit and uses universal humour.

The main character is Casey Brown, a substitute teacher who is still learning theropes and goes by the nickname Mister Twister. Lacking the experience to teach and guide a class of kids, every new situation brings with it a new challenge. While he seems a bit shy at first, he always finds a creative way to live up to his responsibilities. His class loves his imaginative and fun way of teaching. But Mrs Dreus, the stern principal who seems to have an obsession with rules and regulations, does not. She’s constantly got her eye keenly fixed on Mister Twister, so he and the kids must find ways to work around her. Thankfully, whenever Mister Twister’s special way of dealing with things gets him in trouble with Mrs Dreus, the kids of class 6b always help him to save the day...

The stories always focus on Mister Twister (aka Casey Brown), who serves as inspiration or even a role model for his students. We see his troublesome relationship with principal Mrs Dreus and his special bond with his students. The diversity in culture, emotion and background of each child, means they all have their own original stories to tell. Love, jealousy, fights, bullying, and troubles at home: the students offer a treasure trove of stories that take us to a variety of locations. There are recurring elements of light drama, but it is told with speed, humour and charm, and dramatic conflicts are addressed as challenges that can and will be overcome.
