Illustrations Theme Music

The theme music that opens and closes each Kapitein Zeppos episode is Bert Kaempfert's bright and breezy 1963 single record, Living It Up. For a generation of Belgian children it is completely synonymous with the Kapitein Zeppos serials, and hearing it brings the memories flooding back. It seems almost impossible that it was not written solely as the theme for the series, as it fits Kapitein Zeppos like a velvet glove. Kaempfert's Living It Up was retained as the theme for the 1966 English language version overdubbed by the BBC.

This page details some of the editions of this theme down the years - though it only appears to have been issued under the Kapitein Zeppos banner once. The final entry shows a currently available compilation CD containing the track.
