France 3 (channel 3 on French TV) has offered its viewers animal mascots for the holiday and summer schedules since 2001. On air since the summer of 2015, the previous mascots (marmots) featured in the clips that frame commercials have since become real celebrities: their humorous scenes, which echoed the news of France 3 programs, have accumulated over 70 million views on social networks and have received no less than 41 international awards. By separating itself from its emblematic marmots, the public channel wishes to renew its image. They were replaced as of December 2021 by three new animals: gallinules. But why hens to replace marmots? Because they can be found everywhere in France and they are very popular.
