The private German television station in Cologne, Super RTL, has put into production a number of tv movies on Hans Christian Andersen and his fairy tales as part of the celebration of the Danish fairy tale writer in 2005.

The first movies to be finished are dramatizations of three Hans Christian Andersen fairy tales: "The Ugly Duckling", "The Emperor's New Clothes" and "The Little Mermaid", respectively.

However, the idea is dramatize more fairy tales as well as do a number of broadcasts about Hans Christian Andersen and other aspects of his artistic production for example his many paper cutouts.
