WarnerMedia Kids & Family has greenlit “Silly Sundays” from Cartoon Saloon for its new Cartoonito preschool block on HBO Max and Cartoon Network. Created by producer Nuria González Blanco, the animated series follows cousins Sonia, Hugo and Mel on adventures at their family get-togethers. “Silly Sundays” will debut in 2023 before making its international debut in LatAm and EMEA. 

“I would like to thank WarnerMedia Kids & Family for choosing to partner with us on ‘Silly Sundays,’” says Paul Young, co-founder and producer, Cartoon Saloon. “We are so delighted to be reunited with their talented team again for this new show that is going to be very funny and sunny, just like its creator Nuria Blanco. I’d like to send our very special thanks to Amy Friedman, Adina Pitt and Zia Bales for all their support and for being such believers in our work.” 

Gonzalez Blanco will direct alongside Fabian Erlinghäuser. The show is developed and produced with assistance from Fís Éirean/Screen Ireland and Creative Europe. 

Cartoon Saloon Brand Development will handle ancillary and merchandising and Cartoon Saloon will again partner with Superights (“Puffin Rock”) for sales outside the WarnerMedia regions. 

The series is currently in production at Cartoon Saloon’s studio in Kilkenny, Ireland. In addition to airing on Cartoonito across U.S., LatAm and EMEA, RTE will also broadcast “Silly Sundays” in Ireland. 

“Cartoon Saloon is an esteemed studio that masterfully approaches storytelling with love and humanity, and ‘Silly Sundays’ is another great example of how the beloved studio perfectly captures the essence of family bonding,” says Adina Pitt, vice president, partnerships, acquisitions and co-productions for the Americas, WarnerMedia Kids and Family.
