In a 2004 interview with Het Nieuwsblad actor Fons Ekelmans (who played the Witte) remembered that tourists were often confused because certain houses and buildings were located less close to each other than in the series. The actors were also invited to appear during annual festivities as promotional stunts. Wij, Heren Van Zichem has been repeated several times since. The show was also broadcast on Dutch television. In 1971 it won Humo's Prijs van de Kijker ("Humo's Viewers' Award"). An audio play record based on the series was released on vinyl in 1970. (en)
