This wonderful little animated series concerned the adventures of a Viking boy called Vicky and his fellow Vikings. All the characters lived in a village called Flake which lies somewhere on the coastal regions of Norway or Sweden. It is based on the stories of Runer Johnson and is centralised on Vicky who is not a brave, fierce, strong Viking like his father but is a small boy who always relies on thinking through a problem before applying the correct solution. This would often infuriate his father Chieftain Halva of village Flake. In fact it is remarkable the rest of the Vikings had lasted so long without Vicky's help. Many of the Vikings adventures end in triumph due only to the quick thinking of Vicky. Without his help the entire male population of Flake would have spent the rest of their days either as slave or chained up in some deep castle dungeon.
Thanks to Annie for sending / correcting me with the names of the Viking characters.
