After being spotted in children’s books for more than two decades, Where’s Waldo? is finding a new way to reach kids through a brand-new DreamWorks Animation Television original series.

DreamWorks Where’s Waldo? will make its US debut on Universal Kids in fall 2019. The animated series will see its titular character circle the globe celebrating cultures and solving problems through different observations. 

Waldo will be joined on Universal Kids by eight DreamWorks Animation TV series, all of which were previously available exclusively on Netflix. The Mr. Peabody & Sherman Show bows on the channel this month, followed by two seasons of All Hail King Julien in November. The Adventures of Puss in Boots will premiere on the linear channel next January, followed by Dragons: Race to the Edge in February and Dinotrux in April. Home Adventures with Tip & Oh will join the lineup in March 2019, along with the second season of Noddy Toyland Detective and DreamWorks Dragons: Defenders of Berk.

Created by Martin Handford, Where’s Waldo? was first published in 1987 and has since sold 70 million books sold worldwide.
