cartoons, and video games. And, of course, movies: Drachenauge (Dragon's Eye), 1992, and TKKG und die raetselhafte Mind-Machine (2006).
TKKG is named after the initials of the teens:
1. Tim (previously Tarzan), age 14, the leader and the jock of the group (played by Jannis Niewohner in 2006).
3. Dumpling (Kloschen), the chocolate-loving fat guy (Lukas Eichammer)
4. Gaby (Svea Bein), the girl who keeps being told "stay here where it's safe."
Jonathan Dumcke died in August 2013, at age 22, while on holiday with his family in Italy. No word on whether he was gay in real life.
Maybe he'll finally get another soul mate.
