In the 2010 film New Kids Turbo, the city is hit by a huge bomb that was originally intended to destroy neighboring Maaskantje. Finally, in the sequel New Kids Nitro, a bitter fight rages between a group of young men and a woman from Schijndel and a group of young men from Maaskantje. This also brought Schijndel to the attention of New Kids fans, who had previously almost exclusively traveled to Maaskantje to visit locations from the series and the films.
