GO-N Scores French Sale for Tina & Tony


GO-N International has licensed the preschool series Tina & Tony to France Télévisions.

Produced by Riki Group, Tina & Tony tells the story of Tina the Elephant and Tony the Hippo, who live in a home full of colorful dreams with their friends: curious rabbits, friendly piggies, sporty bear and creative foxy.

Eric Garnet, producer and co-founder at GO-N International, said: “We are very grateful Riki trusted us to represent their adorable show, and we are thrilled French children are going to discover the fun and wonderful world of Tina & Tony, thanks to the commitment of France Télévisions. We immediately fell in love with the Tina & Tony characters and the beautiful and colorful universe of the show, top CGI quality and great storytelling and emotions in the long tradition of beautiful and sensitive Russian animation.”

Diana Yurinova, VP of international business development and distribution, commented: “Tina & Tony is a very special series to us, as it has already proven its success with preschoolers in Russia and China, it is now ready for international expansion. We are happy to work with such a strong and reputable partner as GO-N International on French-speaking territories, which are often the key to the global market.”

Claire Heinrich, head of acquisitions at France Télévisions, added: “We are so happy to welcome the lovable and fun characters of Tina & Tony within France Télévisions’ new Okoo’s family. This adorable series celebrates the beautiful friendship between our two characters, who trust and love each other despite—or because of?—their complete opposite personalities, and encourages children to imagine, dream and create their own world, inspired by its round, soft and joyful design.”
