ABRACA (26 episodes x 23 minutes)


Recording France TV

Abraca and Firmin.

Immerse yourself in a fantastic, fun and crazy universe with Abraca. This 12-year-old girl is an apprentice magician from the world of Imagi. She leaves her master Don Quixote and goes through a magic well to the famous witch Carabosse, who will teach her to master her powers. On Earth, she befriends the witch’s grandson, Firmin, who is passionate about video games.

Together they will try to help the characters of fairy tales and legends, freed from prison by Don Quixote, to solve their problems. The prince and the frog, the little thumb or the hen with the golden eggs, discover the surprising and funny rewritings of the stories that shake children.

Abraca is a production of the MadLab Animations studio (also known for Garfield Originals) inspired by the eponymous video game. The studio is a subsidiary of Ankama Animations, which created the Wakfu cartoon. Also, you will notice that the appearance of the characters in the two programs is quite similar.

From 6 years

What they will like:

  • Find the characters in their favorite tales and legends
  • Abraca’s colorful personality
  • Knight, magician or fan of video games: there is something for everyone!

What may concern them:

  • Character malice and manipulation
  • Acabra’s hen can be scary… (but most of the time she will make you think of Hei Hei from the Disney movie Moana)

ME AT YOUR AGE… (52 episodes x 11 minutes)


Recording France TV

Yanissa (her best friend) and Paul.

At 10, Paul goes to school, plays video games, fights with his little sister, rides a scooter… In short, a very normal child! Except that as soon as an adult says to him the words “Me at your age”, Paul is immediately transported back to the time when his interlocutor was also 10 years old! And the opportunities to hear this phrase are many, because Paul has a large family and many adults who gravitate around him.

Me at your age… Paul’s 52 trips to his parents’ 1980s and his grandparents’ 1950s: when there were no mobile phones, when the toilets were at the bottom of the garden, when there was no Internet… And for a boy from the 21 . century it is prehistory!

This cartoon allows viewers to live a unique experience by comparing our current society and the one where the character’s relatives grew up in the space of 11 minutes. With each return to the past, Paul helps his family in difficult situations. In doing so, he learns more about them, but also about himself and his daily practice.

From 6 years

What they will like:

  • Learn more about history, but without lessons!
  • Discover the fascinating history of this family
  • Immerse yourself in the atmosphere of different eras

What may concern them:

  • Be careful, discovering a world without technology may disturb some children…

The house at the end of the street, the old Helsing”barjo / dingo in the neighborhood“, actually contains a secret portal that leads to magical worlds!

During the episodes, the trio will help Helsing in all these monster hunts. Witches, werewolves, goblins or even ghosts, the heroes will have to face their greatest fears in order to become talented and renowned monster hunters.

This cartoon with a Ghostbusters air will allow the youngest to wonder if redemption of monsters is possible.

THE NEW ADVENTURES OF OZ (26 episodes x 23 minutes)

Dorothy in The New Adventures of Oz.

Experience the Wizard of Oz with The New Adventures of Oz. One morning, Dorothy finds a strange magical journal belonging to her mother under the slats of her home in Kansas. When she recites a formula indicated on the notebook, a tornado takes her home to the enigmatic and opulent Emerald City (this will strongly remind you of Robotville in the animated film Robots).

Transported to another world, the young girl will do anything to return home. During this journey, Dorothy will have to face many formidable dangers together with her friends Ojo and West and her dog Toto. Between intrepid flying monkeys and an evil manipulator, his quest to find the magic needed to leave the city promises to be littered with pitfalls.

DISCO DRAGON (52 episodes x 13 minutes)


Record France TV

Betty and Disco.

Disco Dragon is a real breath of fresh air and good mood! The fabulous Disco has an extraordinary superpower: he hears children’s inner music. When his ear itches, it is a signal that one of them needs his help. With Betty, we always manage to find a solution to restore the lost harmony of the little ones. It is certain that music fans will be surprised by this cartoon.

The little extra of this program is to find one of the most famous dubbers in France in the role of Disco: Emmanuel Curtil. From Jim Carrey to Ben Stiller, you must have heard his voice before! In addition, you will easily recognize him if you or your children are Disney movie fans, as he interprets the character of Kronk in Kuzco, the Megalo Emperor. Disco Dingo is a real nod to this role, making a point of honor for the groove (which will not fail to remind you of our dear Emperor Kuzco’s groove).

From 6 years

What they will like:

  • Experience a cartoon rich in songs
  • Follow Disco and Betty on their sometimes dangerous missions
  • Identifying with children’s situations (moving home, adopting animals, eccentric family, etc.)

What may concern them:

  • It is recommended not to be afraid of dragons in order to take full advantage of the good mood of Disco Dragon (which will surely be able to touch the little ones, but also the biggest ones)

Also available on MyCanal and Salto.
