Based on audio books that has sold 11 millions units, the series – aimed at 4 to 7 year-old kids- intends to extend the experience of reading tales with an animated series with a unique narrator. The series is composed of 32 different tales :

  • 22 classical tales  (22×18’ ou 88×5’), based on the traditionnal tales by the brothers Grimm, Andersen, Perrault, or One Thousand and One Nights.
  •  10 musical tales (10×18’ ou 40×5’), to introduce children to the music of the great classical composers such as Bach, Beethoven, Mozart.

Why this double format ?  Each format will:

  • give the possibility to  watch the complete full-length of each tale, like a mini-move of 18’duration.
  • create daily rendez-vous with the tales  : each tale can be watched in 4 chapters of 5’, with a little summary of the previous chapter. This format was specifically created for the digital exploitation, and a very frequent release



  • based on the classical tales, and classical music
  • 2 formats available
