Tags from the story: GO-N Productions, Simon.

A new animated series of Simon Super Rabbit is in production, to be delivered in 2022. The strength of the character continues to grow and there are big plans for its future, even at the licensing level

Simon is the iconic and loveable rabbit created by Stephanie Blake, originally published by l’école des Loisirs in France. With this protagonist GO-N Productions has realized 3 Seasons of the animated series Simon. Simon instantly achieved great ratings in many countries and the success went on since it first launched in France a few years ago, to be now considered as a modern classic for preschool audiences worldwide.

Simon is a top quality show, with iconic graphic design that stands out and great storytelling in the age group; it has a high volume with 3 Seasons, for a total of 156 episodes of 5 minutes, and a new one in the works to be delivered in Summer 2022; a wide exposure thanks to all linear and digital partners, that delivers high audience ratings.

The new season currently in production “Simon Super Rabbit” (52 x 5’) will explore the rich imaginary world of Simon and his friends when they play at being superheroes. We will follow them in their imaginary games where Simon is becoming “Super Rabbit”. At the beginning of the episode, Simon is in his everyday life, he’s got a problem, and he’s imagining that it’s a mission for Super Rabbit.

For its show GO-N selected all the channels which had the best fit with the preschool audience and high ratings in their own country, and after a few months, Simon is always in the top 5 shows of the channel almost everywhere it is broadcast.

The Top linear broadcasters are France TV, Tiny Pop (UK), Clan RTVE (Spain), Cartoonito – Warner (Italy), NHK (Japan), EBS (South Korea), VRT (Belgium), all public broadcasters in Scandinavia and many more in the world.

The show is on platforms as Netflix Worldwide for Season 1, renewed recently.

The digital success is also huge, with More than 2 Billion views on Youtube, more than 5,5 million subscribers on Youtube, more than 1,8 Billion views on Giphy since launch (November 2020).

Simon has started its journey in the world of Licensing with first Licensees mainly in France, Spain, Italy and Portugal. With the recent launch (January 2021) in the UK on TINY POP it is overperforming, and GO-N is going to look for partners in the UK in the field of L&M.

The next step is to turn Simon into a L&M success.
