Paris-based GO-N Productions has secured a raft of international sales for its animated preschool series Simon.

The 52 x five-minute series is headed for 13 new territories, after previously launching on Zouszous preschool block in France and Jetsen Huashi Wangju Kids in China.

The toon has sold to Disney Junior Latin America, Disney South East Asia, Telequebec (Canada), Cartoonito (Italy), VRT (Belgium), NRK (Norway), SVT (Sweden), YLE (Finaldn), RUV (Iceland), RTS (Switzerland), HOP (Israel), ERR (Estonia) and TV5 (Worldwide).

Co-produced with France Télévisions, Simon is based on the book series of the same name by Stephanie Blake. It follows the titular rabbit as he grows up, fights with his parents, figures out school and learns about the world around him.

The deals fall in line with GO-N’s plans to expand its international activities with head of global sales strategies Marie Congé, who joined the company last fall.
