Can works of art become alive? What about the possibility to step into a painting and experience the depicted story? What are the secrets that the artists have hidden in their paintings? The “Art Detectives” invites you behind the scenes of the art world, full of adventures and mysteries. The series features the small detectives Theo, Button and the dachshund Comma who investigate hidden secrets of artworks.

This is the greatest chase in the history of the art world, with the aim to find out what has happened to Comma, who is the Invisible man, living in the boots, and how to make the Invisible man visible again.
