Cartoonito releases new series to celebrate every child’s individuality

Cartoonito has released a brand-new animated series called Silly Sundays. The series hosts a character named Vicky who has a hearing impairment and uses sign language. In the Arabic version of the series, Vicky is voiced by Rein Soleh, a 14-year-old voice actress who also uses a hearing aid and speaks sign language.

Silly Sundays underscores the very important message of celebrating “every child’s unique self”. It champions inclusivity, individuality and originality and is set in the beautiful, colourful coastal village known as Sunday Town.

The series takes the audience back to family days together, when school and work are out for the week and there is nothing scheduled except spending time with family and friends.

Vicky is joined by central characters, Sonia – the wildly curious five-year old, Sonia’s younger sister Mel – the smallest but mightiest, their sensible big cousin Hugo, their mom – the artist of the family, their Dad – the big kid at heart, and the family’s music enthusiast, Granny.

As Hugo’s best friend, Vicky is an indispensable member of the team, and an extra talented child.  Her use of hearing aids is something that is championed in Silly Sundays and her ability to sign language is celebrated as a ‘superpower’.
