Simon in the Land of Chalk Drawings is a British children's animated series about the adventures of a young child named Simon, who has a magic chalkboard. Things that Simon draws on the chalkboard become real in the Land of Chalk Drawings, which Simon can enter by climbing over a fence near his home with a ladder. The stories often revolve around the unintended effects that Simon's drawings have on the Land of Chalk Drawings, such as when an upset Simon draws a picture of his angry self, which goes on a rampage.
A new series premiered in 2002 on Teletoon in Canada, with a new theme song, an updated outfit for Simon, and a different colour scheme. Simon's friend Henry is replaced with a girl named Lily. In this new version, Simon wears a striped T-shirt, shorts and sneakers.
The series was later parodied onNBC's Saturday Night Live by Mike Myers. However, unlike the British series, the SNL sketches took place in Simon's bathtub, in which Simon shows, and discusses, drawings that correlate with his life.
Simon is also an award users can build on the popular internet game BrokenPictureTelephone. It is awarded to users by other users who feel that the artist has the drawing skills of a 4 year old.
