AVRO's Toppop - in short: Toppop - was the first weekly pop program on Dutch television. The AVRO broadcasted the program from 22 September 1970 to 27 June 1988. Initiator and director of Toppop was Rien van Wijk. Other directors were Egbert van Hees, Geert Popma, Henk Renou, Chris Berger, Jessy Winkelman, Wim van der Linden, Bert van der Veer and Charly Noise. The idea for the program was copied from the British Top of the Pops.

For many Belgians and Dutch AVRO's Toppop had long been the primary source of information in the field of pop music. Ad and Penny grew into this for many the epitome of rock 'n' roll.
