Superights Adds Silly Sundays to Slate


Superights has acquired the international distribution rights to Silly Sundays, produced by Cartoon Saloon.

The comedy for upper preschoolers, created by Nuria Gonzalez Blanco, follows a family with three kids on their Sundays, days when they have nothing scheduled and spend their time with each other and friends playing, dancing, cooking and more.

Silly Sundays was presold to RTÉjr in Ireland and premiered in July 2023. It has since been acquired by and currently rolling out on Cartoonito and Max/HBO Max with Warner Bros. Discovery in EMEA, Latin America and the U.S.

“It’s a real pleasure to finally welcome Silly Sundays to our catalog,” said Nathalie Pinguet, deputy general manager of Superights. “Its highly original graphic style and the quality of its writing make it a delightful series that makes you want to spend your Sundays by the sea with your family! We are going to complete the work started by Cartoon Saloon and export the series around the globe.”

Gerry Shirren, managing director at Cartoon Saloon, added, “We are delighted to once again partner with the Superights team and really excited to see the market launch of Silly Sundays at MIPTV. Silly Sundays has been a labor of love for the production team at Cartoon Saloon over the last four years, ever since the series made its now acclaimed pitch at Cartoon Forum that wowed the audiences there. Now, we hope will find the same excitement with broadcasters and audiences around the world joining those that are already watching on RTÉ and Cartoonito and Max.”
