Simon is a bespectacled young boy with a penchant for chalk drawing, whether it be on random walls around town or on his own chalkboard at home. However one day, Simon meets one of his creations come to life, Henry, and after properly completing drawing him, Simon is led to the Land of Chalk Drawings; a land where everything Simon draws comes to life. From that moment, Simon has numerous adventures that often spring from his idle drawings in the real world, which has a bad habit of creating serious problems in the Land of Chalk Drawings. However, with Simon's creativity, and a steady supply of chalk at hand, the boy is able to create any solutions needed to save the day. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

simple childhood joy
23 April 2017 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

"Well you know my name is Simon, and the things I draw come true. Oh the pictures take me, take me over, climb the ladder with you." Simon loves to draw on the fence on his way to school and the drawing board in his room. His drawings come alive. He's able to climb over the fence and have adventures in the Land of Chalk Drawings. This was a British series of 5 minute episodes of rudimentary animation. They were also featured in various children's program later in other countries.

It is sweet, simple childhood joy. The little ditty is short, unforgettable fun. The little stories are simple and I really like that Simon has to work to draw his world into existence. There is an innocence in both the concept and the execution.
