Storyline
The Robber Hotzenplotz is based on the first two millionfold best-selling books of the Hotzenplotz trilogy: The Robber Hotzenplotz and Further Adventures of Robber Hotzenplotz."I steal what takes my fancy, that’s why folks all know me," boasts Hotzenplotz – in his opinion, he is the most important robber for miles around. And if he hadn’t chosen to steal Grandmother’s treasured coffee grinder of all things, then... well, then Kasperl and Seppel would not have set out in a dangerous hunt for the villain and swapped their caps on the way. And perhaps constable Dimpfelmoser and the fortune-teller Frau Schlotterbeck and Wasti the croco-dog (a dog that has been turned into a crocodile) would not have met. And the beautiful fairy Amaryllis would have had to languish as a revolting toad in the dungeons of the wicked wizard for ever and ever. But in the end, every one receives his just deserts: fairy-weed, potatoes, a miniature castle, a golden cart loaded with sand – and grandmother gets her coffee grinder back.(Source: www.german-cinema.de, Film Archive)
