Gulli (M6 GROUP) and RTVE Leap on Froggie

11 June, 2024

Banijay Kids & Family, a global leader in children’s entertainment, behind hit shows such as Totally Spies!and Mr Bean: The Animated Series, today announces Gulli (M6 GROUP) and RTVE have picked up new animated series Froggie, co-produced by Monello Productions (part of Banijay Kids & Family) and Pikkukala.

In this charming animation, created by Eric Noto-Loubier and Cécile Sady, 11-year-old Froggie, who grew up in a huge city, is suddenly forced to live in a small town in the middle of the country. For a curious, confident and adventurous girl, Bigg City seemed like the perfect place to live, but she must learn to adjust to her new surroundings. If only she could get cell phone reception…

Cécile Sady, COO Monello Productions says: “There’s a universality to the themes of friendship, finding your identity and dealing with change, and we’ve combined these with some brilliant humour, which we hope will entertain young audiences around the world. I’m incredibly passionate about this project and am delighted both RTVE and Gulli, the first kids channel in France, have committed to the series.”

The 52 x 11’30 series, aimed at a 6+ audience, was recently crowned Best TV Pilot in the Pulcinella Awards at this year’s Cartoons on the Bay. It will air in France on M6’s Gulli and in Spain on RTVE’s Clan. Banijay Kids & Family Distribution represents worldwide distribution for Froggie.

With a strong reputation for producing world-renowned animation, Monello Productions creates original shows for children and the whole family, covering comedy, action-adventure and education. Founded in September 2013, the Paris-based studio, run by Giorgio Welter and Cécile Sady, is behind internationally successful series including Max and Maestro, Street Football, Marblegen, When I Was Your Age and CGI Hello Kitty Super Style!, and upcoming series Chimera Keepers: Adventures with Incredible Creatures.
