Wonderful episode!!!! This episode is #3087 and it was broadcast in the USA on 7th August 1980...when Asa gave a big  birthday party for Sam and Mimi!! Although it says episode 4: The party continues....in the German broadcast...

 

That's because it was the 4th episode that was broadcast here ^_^ Apparently, the package consisted of 357 episodes, starting with #3083 and probably ending with #3444 (if they didn't skip some episodes in-between – that did happen to other US soaps).

 

The 1st episode was shown on January 2nd, 1989, on Pro7 (the network's logo can be seen in the video above). After 100 episodes, Pro7 cancelled the show on May 19th, 1989. The remaining episodes – that probably already had been dubbed in the late 80s – were then shown on a pay-tv station between 1997 and 2000. And then they wondered why nobody tuned in... imagine watching "brand new" episodes that were in reality almost 20 years old.

 

They actually gave every episode a title, just like a primetime show.

Interesting! So if the first episode shown in Germany is 3083(are you sure?)...that episode number 4 is 3086...According to an Oltl script ep 3081 is 30th July 1980....then episode 3086 is 6th August 1980.

 

In Spain, they broadcast the same first 130 episodes from August 1980- February 1981 in 1986. But they only broadcast these 130 episodes...

 

I guess in all the European markets they broadcast the same episodes...

 

And by the way, have you got more episodes in German of these years? Thank you!
