France’s Xilam Animation has signed a bunch of broadcast deals in EMEA and LatAm for its new rebooted series Mr Magoo. Inspired by the classic cartoon of the same name, the 78 x seven-minute 2D-animated series is currently in production and slated to start airing later this month.
Turner picked up Mr Magoo for its Boomerang channel in France, French- and English-speaking Africa, the Middle East, Israel, Turkey, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Central & Eastern Europe. And Discovery Kids acquired it for Latin America. The show is also set to air on Super RTL (Germany), VRT and RTBF (Belgium), SIC K (Portugal), RTVE (Spain) and RTS (Switzerland).
The new Mr Magoo targets kids six to 11 and follows along as the eponymous senior citizen causes chaos. Consumer products will be a major focus for the property moving forward, starting with the French and UK markets.
