TFOU IS BACK: A NEW DIRECTION!

18 Jul - 2023

Tags from the story: TFOU.

Last season was a bigger draw than ever! TFOU broke all its records and recorded its best season ever for the third year running.

With an audience share of 38% among children aged 4 to 10 since September, it has confirmed its leadership and has very quickly succeeded in bringing new programmes up to the same level as established hits.

Novelty is the watchword for the 2023/2024 season!

New series will take youngsters on an adventure: Azuro & the Dragon Squad, an extraordinary rescue unit, Ruben & Cie, a crack team ready to take on any construction challenge, and Mille Bornes Challenge, the most famous cross-country karting race for apprentice drivers.

Children will also find their favourite heroes in new seasons: Barbapapa: One Big Happy Family or Gus the Itsy Bitsy Knight for younger children, while older children can enjoy the new adventures of Miraculous, the Adventures of Ladybug and Chat Noir in the eagerly-awaited season 5 finale.

The end of the year will be punctuated by a whole host of special events, thanks to around twenty never-before-seen special episodes, in particular for The SmurfsGhost Force, Miraculous and Barbapapa, as well as our must-see puppies from Paw PatrolAlice & Lewis and Santiago. These are strong stories, with recognisable characters that will appeal to all TFOU audiences, young and old.

Finally, emotion and comedy will be the two key ingredients of this new offering, in the image of the Hoofs who celebrated their fifth anniversary this year, and welcomed a new member for the occasion: Groof. It’s an arrival that opens up a whole new range of stories and gags. Characters with a whimsical, offbeat tone who have become indispensable and who will be keeping a close eye on all the news this year, starting with the Rugby World Cup in September 2023. The icing on the cake is that 100% Hoofs Tonies will be available at the end of August. The programme includes 2 x 45-minute stories told by the leading characters on TF1’s children’s channel.

TFOU PARC continues its developpement

Building on the success of the first TFOU Parc, which opened in Evry-Courcouronnes in September 2021, and the opening of a second TFOU Parc in Lille/Tourcoing in December 2022, the adventure continues!
