Emmy-nominated kid’s series endeavors to encourage children to trust their imagination and embrace their own, unique worldview.
Paris -- French animation production and distribution company, Dandelooo, has announced the Season 2 launch of the International Emmy Kids Award-nominated preschool animated series Petit, directed by Bernardita Ojeda. With 26 brand new episodes currently in production the adventures of Petit continue.
Based on the book Petit el monstruo, written and illustrated by Isol, an Astrid Lindgren Award winner, Petit (Season I: 39 x 7’; Season II: 26 x 7’) is a 2D series targeted at 4 to 7-year-olds. The series is produced by Chilean production studio Pájaro in co-production with Argentina’s Pakapaka and Nonstop, Colombia’s Señal Colombia and Spain’s WKND and distributed internationally by Dandelooo.
“We are really excited to be introducing Petit to buyers around the world,” commented Dandelooo joint founders, Emmanuèle Pétry Sirvin and Jean-Baptiste Wéry. “Petit is a very special series observing the world through the eyes of a child. Its universal messages of being brave, confident and trusting yourself, helped by your imagination and friends even if you make mistakes will appeal and capture the imagination of children everywhere.”
Petit always breaks the mold. Everyday events like swimming classes, challenging homework, wanting to go to an amusement park, or a simple bug bite are just the beginning for Petit, who always manage to blow things up by thinking way out of the box. He challenges established rules, and along with his friends and family, finds his own unique answers.
Skillfully presented in a funny and conversation provoking manner, Petit's graphic and narrative palette speaks directly to children in their own language.
