Many thanks to Martyn for passing this on. This summer (2010) marks the debut of a new animated series from Canada based on the 1001 Nights. The animation looks really great and contemporary. I look forward to seeing what they do with the stories of the Nights as they promise a variety of not-only-Ali Baba-and-Sinbad-Aladdin tales.
The series is aimed at children aged 6-9.
