He had a big success in 1956 with the play Sie können's nicht lassen which was later turned into a film. Since the 1960s, Stromberger predominantly worked as a script writer for television, occasionally also as a director. The popular family show Die Unverbesserlichen with the actors Inge Meysel and Joseph Offenbach was produced from 1965 to 1971. After Tod eines Schülers in 1981, Stromberger wrote another very successful television series, Diese Drombuschs in the 80s. He died in 2009.
