Join Nicholas and his gang of friends—boys and girls—in a new animated series of 52×13’ episodes adapted from the works of the genius pair, René Goscinny and Jean-Jacques Sempé. In this series we find Nicholas during the vacation with his parents at Quaint-by-the-Sea, a charming little town in Brittany where time seems to tick quietly by.
But that’s forgetting the energy produced by our hero and his gang. They manage to grab every opportunity offered by these summer days to enjoy a minor or a grand adventure full of exciting surprises and the most unexpected dramas: for a little boy like Nicholas, with his boundless imagination, a hike in the nearby woods turns into a Davy Crockett-style expedition, with grizzlies on the prowl; a barbecue without sardines becomes a frantic search for a mislaid icebox and ends up as a hilarious fishing trip; a quiet game of playing shops with the girls on a rainy day turns into an incredible auction sale/game of boules where all the rules are broken…
In this holiday atmosphere, the kids take full advantage of their freedom and, when they’re not playing on the beach, they gather at the Trappers Club where well-meaning counsellors try to keep them occupied. The adults in our series, as well as the counsellors, are quickly overwhelmed by the excess of energy and the evermore original initiatives of the gang of pals, whose adventures are seen through the eyes of our hero.
Nicholas, with his friends from town, Alec, Mary-Jane and Geoffrey, but now joined by some new characters they meet on vacation, drags us along behind him into a charming world that is both mischievous and gentle where friendship and family occupy the center stage.
