“The Adventures of the Young Marco Polo” is a German animated series aimed at children aged 6 to 10 years old. It takes us to the time when Marco Polo was just 10 years old, and was only still learning to be an explorer.

In a time when the earth was believed to be flat and after a long journey eastwards, young Marco Polo is finally reunited with his father at the court of Kublai Khan. However, just as they are planning their return home, Marco discovers something that changes all his travel plans: His friend Shi La is not an orphan! Her mother, a famous Chinese singer, is still alive. Knowing how it feels to miss a parent, Marco wants to help Shi La find her long-lost mother, and even Luigi overcomes his travel-weariness to help his friend.

Together the three of them set out on a journey to exciting new places and fascinating cultures that will soon become another great adventure. They meet the brave soldier girl Mulan, help build the Angkor Wat temple, and participate in an elephant party in the middle of the jungle. On the Indian Ocean they get immersed in a swarm of butterflies and in Egypt they encounter hidden tombs and mummies. Their friendship is tested from time to time, but together they overcome all obstacles. New adventures are waiting – just over the horizon!

Who are the main characters of The Adventures of the Young Marco Polo?

Marco Polo: a very curious 10-year-old boy who is the future famous world explorer in-the-making. He is highly intelligent and loves adventure, but he can be reckless and impatient at times. He often acts without thinking, which causes him and his friends many difficulties.
Luigi Bellini: a 12-year-old boy who's Marco's best friend. He's quite big and heavy for his age, but this means he can always protect his friends thanks to his great strength. He likes homely comfort and isn't a fan of discovering new things.
Shi La Won: an 11-year-old girl who claims to be a Chinese princess, but was in reality raised in an orphanage. She has an air of mystery and is very headstrong and confident. She might seem tough, but she is very sensitive and likes to keep up her princess persona.
Fu Fu: this little bat is very protective towards Shi La. He also gets along well with Luigi, because they both love food.
