“Silly Sundays” (78x7’) is a feel-good comedy for upper-preschoolers full of heart that centers around family. The series follows 3 kids Sonia, Hugo, Mel with their parents and Granny on those days when there is nothing scheduled except spending time with family and friends. The stories focus on their Sunday journeys and mostly their fun times as they embrace every little moment together. This 2D series takes the characters in lots of different activities such as playing, dancing, cooking, always with an engaging and lovely moral at the end.
