But since he’s not so good at his profession, things don’t usually go as planned and he often finds himself in the most ridiculously funny situations.
Looking into the animation and storyline, the Netflix version is exactly the same as the original version. But some changes have been made to the dialogues of the characters to make it more suitable for an international audience.
