Bill Body (aka Bill Body - Verrückte Welt des Sports "The Crazy World of Sports") is a Swiss-German animated series that originally aired in 1992-1993. It was part of a whole toy franchise, Bill Body der "Super" Sportler ("Bill Body the Super Sportsman") promoted in the chocolate Kinder products.

It centered on young and determinant sportsman Bill Body, who lives with his friends on Body Island, where all of the society is based on sports. Bill tries to master as many sports as possible, but his clumsiness, bad luck and over-confidence often get in the way.

The series was also dubbed at least in French and in Portuguese, in addition to its native German.

Of the alleged 52 episodes, only a few have resurfaced. A couple of episodes in Portuguese have managed to find their way on the Internet, along several shorts that constituted an anthology episode.

The only home video version that seems to exist is a single German-language VHS that is found on different auction sites; contributor The Reynard bought one, and discovered the anthology episode where the shorts come from, plus an unknown episode (where Bill Body is shipwrecked in a tropical island, meeting some natives). He also distinctly remembers watching an episode in the mid-1990s where Bill Body had to take on sumo-wrestling, but couldn't get fat enough to even face his opponent.

UPDATE 7/8/2014: Contributor Smith B. has two English-dubbed episodes of the series taped on VHS, when it was screened on South African television. They will be uploaded when possible.
