The Oggy Oggy crew are coming to Netflix, thanks to a new partnership between Netflix and the French production company Xilam Animation. The two companies announced that Xilam will produce an original CGI animated preschool series “Oggy Oggy,” based on the global hit franchise “Oggy and the Cockroaches.” The animated series has already reached 800M households around the world over the last 20 years, and the new series is part of Netflix’s expansion into preschool programming.
In the new series, Oggy is freed from the ceaseless tyranny of the cockroaches and lives in a fantasy world inhabited by a vibrant community of cats. Oggy Oggy is a very special little cat, full of curiosity and enthusiasm, who likes to engage with his neighbours and set off on fun adventures.
Marc du Pontavice, Chief Executive Officer, Xilam Animation added, “We are delighted with this new collaboration with Netflix, a testimony of their commitment to offering children around the world access to high-quality programmes. With this new development of our successful series Oggy and the Cockroaches, Xilam intends to establish the Oggy universe as one of the most important franchises for the pre-school target audience. By expanding its footprint, the brand is expanding its global audience.”
“We’re thrilled to be working with Marc and his team to expand Oggy’s universe. Xilam is one of France’s most prolific producers, having developed a distinct expertise in non-dialog animated comedy for kids. We’re certain Oggy’s kindness and sweet charm will warm the hearts of preschoolers everywhere,” said Dominique Bazay, director, kids & family international originals, Netflix.
Netflix’s expansion into the kids aged 2-6 demo also includes “Ask The StoryBots,” “Chip and Potato,” “Mighty Little Bheem, ” “Motown Magic,” “Super Monsters,” “True and the Rainbow Kingdom,” “Word Party,” and “YooHoo to the Rescue.” Other previously announced Netflix preschool originals that launch soon include “DreamWorks Archibald’s Next Big Thing,” “Go!
