French animation production and distribution company Dandelooo is set to adapt the children’s book series “Gaston’s Emotions” for television.  

The preschool comedy series, which teaches children to identify emotions and manage them effectively, is currently being developed by author/illustrator Aurélie Chien Chow Chine, Chloé Sastre and Romain Gadiou. Dandelooo will hold worldwide distribution rights to the animation series. 

Gaston is a young unicorn who has a magical rainbow-colored mane that changes color whenever a strong emotion overwhelms him. 

“Coming from the world of animation, it's a real dream to imagine my little unicorn Gaston coming to life,” says Aurélie Chien Chow Chine, author, “Gaston’s Emotions.” “And I am delighted that this precious and first step is in the expert hands of Dandelooo whose artistic sensibility I like very much. A colorful adventure awaits us!” 

“At Dandelooo we fell in love with Gaston, who’s not just unique, but cute too, thanks to his humor, spontaneous charm and true kindness,” says Emmanuèle Pétry Sirvin, co-founder, Dandelooo. “With all his great qualities, it’s probably why so many children love him as their best friend. We are proud to be chosen by its creator as the production company to develop the concept make this series happen and bring Gaston to life.”
