Technicolor’s new animated preschool show Gus — The Itsy Bitsy Knight has been snapped up by distributor PGS. The show, which is a comedy-adventure targeting 4 to 7-year-old audiences is based on a publishing created by Kankerleroux and Francoise de Guibert for Editions Gulf Stream. PGS will distribute the 52 x 11-minute series worldwide (except France) in 2020.
The CG-animated series takes place in a different medieval world which has cars, electric ponies, and other wonders of modern technology—as well as knights, dragons and magic! The story follows a small grasshopper-sized boy named Gus, who wishes to become the greatest knight in all the kingdom of Karamel. Armed with his laser sword and mounted on his electric pony, Gus never misses an opportunity to pursue adventure and win the day. The tiny hero will prove to all that nothing is impossible for one with a valiant heart, and that there is no knight greater than Gus – the Itsy Bitsy Knight!
“We couldn’t be more excited to adapt the world of Dakerleroux & Françoise de Guibert to TV for kids. We love the vibrancy and unique group of characters from the stories, and we’re dedicated to bringing the same magic to the series. TF1 has been a great partner for some of our previous shows and we’re excited to work with them again on Gus,” says Sandrine Nguyen of TAP.
“We’re very pleased to be on-board this new series. We’ve already received an overwhelming amount of positive responses to the show and we’re certain that Gus will connect with kids around the world and bring massive success to broadcasters,” says Guillaume Soutter of PGS, which also handles shows such as Alvinnnn! & the Chipmunks, Monchhichi, Playmobil, Miraculous and The Jungle Bunch.
