History:

Back in 1969 Per Asplin composed the story of Putti Plutti Pott and Father Christmas's beard. The story started as a novel, and from there Per and his 4 children produced a long-playing record version, and cassette. The following year, based on the long-playing version, a TV programme was adapted from the story, using Per, his children, Kari Diesen as Mother Christmas, and Harald Heide Steen jr, and Jon Skolmen as Kalle and Palle - two of the comical Father Christmas characters inChristmas Land. Despite the fact it was a simple production, (in black and white), the programme became very popular and was sent as a yearly repeat. Songs such as "Vi ha'kke tid, for vi må finne skjegget", and "Hei hå, nå er det jul igjen"; these songs are now immortal, and are sung and played at every Christmas party.

After much popular request, Per Asplin produced a full evening version of this musical drama Putti Plutti Pott. Included were many cheery songs and dance numbers, that extended this tale with even further added excitement. The stage version had its debut in the Oslo Concert House back in 1987, and since then, has become a Christmas classic.

Before his death, in 1996, Per Asplin chose as his successor, Knut Morten Damm, as the singing, dancing uncle Per. There have been many that have given life to the cheery Mother Christmas, including Per Asplin's daughter Caroline, Nora Brockstedt, Siw Anita Andersen, Veslemøy Solberg, Elisabeth Lindland and Heidi Halvorsen. Glupe Gløgg (Mr Clever), one of Christmas land's secret police service - agent nr. 00Nix, which was originally written for Leif Juster, was played by Carsten Byhring, Arve Opsahl and Sverre Holm,  (the whole Olsen gang).

Even Dag Vågsås as Karl Sundby and Kasper Asplin have made the Christmas character Jokkum Jokkumsen Jokkum, who could not  stop eating Christmas porridge, into something completely special. The character of Hannibal, a head of department is played by two of our youngest folk dancers.-Martin Myhr and Jon Ellingsen . Father Christmas will naturally be played every year by …Father Christmas!
