Award-winning French animation studio Xilam Animation has secured a deal with DreamWorks Animation’s Classic Media for its hilarious new animated series, Mr Magoo based on the hugely successful classic cartoon of the same name. DreamWorks has exclusively picked up all US TV, home video and VOD rights to season one (78 x 7’). Mr Magoo will then be available from 17/01/2020 on CBS All Access streaming service.

Marc du Pontavice at Xilam Animation said: “Since debuting in fall 2018, Mr Magoo has drawn strong ratings and captured the hearts of kids and their families around the world. The original version of Mr Magoo was first created in the US so we’re delighted DreamWorks has now come on board to introduce local audiences to our fresh take on this wonderfully candid and optimistic character, back where it all began 70 years ago.

Originally commissioned by France Télévisions, Mr Magoo currently airs on Turner’s Boomerang channel in France, Africa, the Middle East, Israel, Turkey and Nordics, Cartoon Network (Asia), Discovery Kids (Latin America), Super RTL (Germany), VRT and RTBF (Belgium), SIC K (Portugal), RTVE (Spain), RTS (Switzerland), CITV (UK), Discovery and DEA Kids (Italy), among other channels.
