Paris-based production company Xilam has licensed three seasons of its animated comedy Oggy & the Cockroaches to Disney Channel in Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
The third, fourth and fifth seasons will begin airing this week, and will run every weekday at 4:10 p.m.
Produced by Gaumont and Xilam, the non-dialog comedy follows a chubby cat named Oggy and his rivalry with three insects. Oggy and the Cockroaches airs on Gulli and Canal J in France, as well as Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon and Disney Channel in various territories. The toon’s sixth and seven seasons are slated to launch next year.
In May, Xilam stepped up licensing and merchandising efforts for its flagship brand, signing on three new licensing agents for Oggy in Latin America, Germany and Russia.
