Dandelooo Sends Ernest and Célestine Season Two to Germany


German pubcaster ZDF has picked up all 26 episodes of Ernest and Célestine—The Collection season two from Dandelooo.

The preschool series follows the adventures of a big eccentric bear and a mischievous little mouse, whose friendship endures despite the disapproval from their respective mice-eating and bear-fearing communities. Season two will begin airing on ZDF on December 1.

Based on the books by Belgian author and illustrator Gabrielle Vincent, Ernest and Célestine—The Collection is produced by Folivari, So-Nord and RTBF. It has won several awards and has sold to a slew of international broadcasters.

The first feature film, Ernest and Célestine, won the César Award and was nominated at the 86th Academy Awards for best animated feature. The second film, Ernest and Célestine: A Trip to Gibberitia, is set debut in French theaters on December 14. It is produced by Folivari, Mélusine and STUDIOCANAL.
