APC Kids has secured a raft of sales for its animated property Fox & Hare ().

Based on popular forest fables and aimed at children aged four to seven, the 26 x 11’ series is directed by Mascha Halberstad and Tom van Gestel, and produced by Submarine in the Netherlands, Walking the Dog in Belgium and Doghouse Films in Luxembourg.

DR in Denmark, RTHK in Hong Kong and Piwi+ in France have all picked up the show, along with KRO- NCRV in The Netherlands. Fox & Hare has also pre-sold to RTBF Belgium, YLE Finland, RUV Iceland, ERR Estonia and TVP Poland.

“The mix of clay and 3D animation in Fox & Hare creates a series with a distinctive look and feel,” says Lionel Marty, Managing Director of APC Kids. “Combined with the universal theme of friendship and community, we are delighted that new global broadcasters are partnering with us to bring audiences into the world of this fun new show.”

Fox & Hare follows the bright and cheerful adventures of unexpected forest friends in a humorous and imaginative animated series adapted from the eponymous book series by Sylvia Vanden Heede and Thé Tjong Khing.
