GO-N Starts Production on Prehistoric Toon, Tib & Tumtum


Paris-based producer/distributor GO-N Productions has announced the start of production on a new animated series titled Tib & Tumtum. On hand to help will be co-producers TF1 (France), KiKA and HR for ARD (Germany). The series is targeted towards kids aged 5 to 8, and was adapted from the popular comic book by Flora Grimaldi and Nicolas Bannister, published in France the US, Italy, and the Nordics.

Tib & Tumtum follows the titular boy Tib, who is ostracized by his peers in his prehistoric village due to the unsightly birthmark on his face. However, it’s not all bad for Tim because he has a Tyrannosaurus Rex for a best friend. While not easy to control and prone to disaster, Tib’s friendship with the large dinosaur make for an endearing, yet gigantic adventure series.

“Tib & Tumtum offers a unique mixture of adventure, comedy with sometimes surprisingly deep and emotional moments. Albeit the series has a boy as hero, the show perfectly targets boys and girls alike, as it features strong female characters as well and conveys modern role models and equal rights for men and woman!” said KiKA’s head of fiction, acquisitions and co-productions Sebastien Debertin. “Tib & Tumtum additionally comes with beautiful, fantastic artwork and with the most impressing skies in an animated series, ever!”

Tib & Tumtum will have its global premiere at MIP Junior this fall.
