GUS, THE ITSY BITSY KNIGHT

Synopsis

Once upon a time, there was a little boy, Gus, who wanted to become a great knight. Sorry, not a great knight… The Greatest knight in the whole kingdom of Karamel. Wielding with his laser sword, mounted on his electric pony, Gus never misses an opportunity to go on an adventure to accomplish all his missions.

The problem is, Gus is… ITSY BITSY! He stands three apples high, to be precise, but has a heart the size of a house! Gus will prove to one and all that a brave heart can overcome everything, and that there’s no greater cavalier than Gus, the itsy bitsy knight!

Upbeat, funny, modern, vibrant and heartwarming, Gus, the itsy bitsy knight dusts the cobwebs off the fairytale genre! The anachronisms and clash of codes between today’s world and the Medieval setting are the very DNA of the show and they will imbue the stories (ALT) episodes with a lot of freshness and humor while the fantastic, wacky world of the Karamel Kingdom and the heroes’ crazy ideas will give free reign to all manner of visual gags. But Gus, the itsy-bitsy knight is also an adventure show! The heroic quests embarked upon by our tender-hearted little friend will be packed with action and twists galore.

Full credits on IMDB

An original production of Mikros Animation based on a publishing created by Dankerleroux and Françoise de Guibert for Gulf Stream Éditeur, “Gus, le Chevalier Minus”.

We couldn’t be more excited to adapt the world of Dankerleroux & Françoise de Guibert to TV for kids. We love the vibrancy and unique group of characters from the stories, and we’re dedicated to bringing the same magic to the series. TF1 has been a great partner for some of our previous shows and we’re excited to work with them again on Gus.
