Karius and Bactus (Sööbik ja Pisik) 211
Children’s musical by Urmas Sisask based on Thorbjørn Egneri book “Karius and Bactus”.
If you look at the Vanemuine Theatre’s programme, you’ll see that Karius and Bactus is often sold out. This gratifying interest in the show is a hopeful sign that the state of Estonian children’s teeth is also gradually starting to improve.

Karius and Bactus is a Norwegian children’s book revolving around the title characters – two dental trolls who live in the tooth cavities of a boy named Juss. They live a wonderful life as Juss eats white bread covered with syrup and does not brush his teeth afterwards. Eventually, a dentist comes to his rescue.
The book, which is illustrated with humorous pictures and carries an important message, has been a children’s literary classic for generations of children in Scandinavia and elsewhere.
In Estonian, the book was translated by Arvo Alas and published as Karius and Bactus in 1972.
A performance with an important message for all kids!
