Complete credits for the French songs can be found on the French 45 rpm of the series:

Japanese credits that are not on the French CD come from Japanese vinyl (JBX-2002).

I don’t know where to find the info about the singer of the German Opening Theme.
It’s written that Karel Svoboda performed the song on the German CD on VGMdb (https://vgmdb.net/album/31036), but I don’t think that the composer Karel Svoboda is a singer too… Surely it’s just about the instrumentation.

The booklet for the German version doesn't credit any singer, just Karel Svoboda for the music and Andrea Wagner for the lyrics (which basically just contain one line).

Karel Svoboda sometimes sang on his tracks, but he did it very rarely (like in the musical "Golem" on one track). And the boy who sings the theme song isn't a professional either, maybe just a random boy's choir member.

Btw can somebody make a page for Karel Svoboda? He was a really great Czech composer and contributed many classics to the animation section. I would be very happy

Thanks for the infos.
So Karel Svoboda is not credited too as performer (musician) in the German booklet?

OK I'm going to add a page for Karel Svoboda.

Thank you!
No, the booklet only credits all tracks "Music by: Karel Svoboda", while two tracks, which feature the German theme song, add "Lyrics by: Andrea Wagner".

I can upload some scans later for the respective releases.

OK, so I suppose it's the same thing for the other booklets of the "Generation Fernseh-kult" collection?
Yes if you can add scans of the booklets, it would be nice, thank you.
