The cheerful yet disaster-prone Mister Magoo means well even when things don’t go exactly according to plan in a new animated series from the Xilam Animation catalog.
“Mr Magoo is the reboot of an American classic, but it gains a unique edge when combined with Xilam’s creativity and modern touch,” says Morgann Favennec, the executive VP of development and global sales at Xilam Animation.
The company is also promoting its first preschool series, Paprika. Favennec says: “We’ve worked hard to craft the show with a perfect balance of comedy, tenderness, discovery and imagination, and we’re very satisfied with the result.”
In addition, the slate features seasons five to seven of the flagship Oggy and the Cockroaches, which Favennec believes “remains inherently modern” as it approaches its 20th anniversary next year. “Our strong collection of new episodes showcases this,” she notes.
Favennec adds: “We continue to look for potential production partners who share our production standards and creative vision.”
