A big co-viewing favourite!

September 1st 2008: MIPCOM 2008 News

Newly completed HD pre-school series Carefree Capers (26 x 5’) heads up awol animation’s Mipcom line-up this year.

Produced by Sansoucis Productions, in collaboration with co-pro partners Cap Canal France, the CNC, CRAV and Nao, the series premieres internationally this Autumn on the Disney Channel Japan with a roll-out in the Middle East on the Al Jazeera Childrens’ Channel scheduled for later this year.

Caroline Desnoettes, illustrator and painter, published by Editions Albin Michel/Hachette/La Réunion des Musées Nationaux and creator of the crayon-style graphic universe of the Carefree Capers hamlet introduces us to Howard and Harriet, Paulette and Juliet, Rosie and Romeo and all their farmyard friends. Set to storyboards penned from the perspective of on-stage clown Catherine Le Guen these friends like nothing better than to exaggerate the tiniest details of farmyard life, making mountains out of molehills – and molehills where there are none! Life is so much more fun after all when there’s a drama down at the farm … the sudden appearance of pink milk, Harriet looking for greener grass, Paulette’s Pants Parade - whatever next?!

Using an original, in-house created software technique, Sansoucis Productions sets the characters in cookie-cut relief – and the series plays out to a bossa nova in the country soundtrack.

Howard and Harriet, Paulette, Juliet and friends all love to play with words too – every episode ends with a good-advice-for- life “aphorism” - as in the words of Trevor …

“Too many questions can give you indigestion!”
