MUMBAI: Hit animated comedy series Oggy and the Cockroaches will move from Nick to Cartoon Network from the fourth quarter of 2012.

Viacom18's Nick was showing the series in India since 2009.

Cartoon Network Asia Pacific has entered into an exclusive co-production agreement with leading French animation studio, Xilam, to create season four of Oggy and the Cockroaches.

The season 4 of Oggy and the Cockroaches will premiere on Cartoon Network across Asia Pacific. Cartoon Network Asia Pacific has also acquired the rights to seasons one to three (65 x 30’) for the region.

Xilam and Cartoon Network will also collaborate to produce a unique Indian-inspired special that will strike a particular chord with a well-established fan base in this territory.

Turner Broadcasting System Asia Pacific director, programming, acquisitions & development Layla Lewis said, “Oggy and the Cockroaches has a winning comedy formula that has made it hugely popular with kids in the Asia Pacific region. We’re thrilled to partner with Xilam Animation and to invest in the latest series, ensuring that Oggy and the Cockroaches becomes part of a formidable comedy line up on Cartoon Network Asia Pacific this year.”

First produced in 1999, the latest installment of Oggy and the Cockroaches will comprise 26 half-hour episodes of fast, crazy and hilarious adventures, but this time with a new twist with Oggy falling in love with newcomer Olivia, his pretty next door neighbour, while pesky roaches, Joey, Marky and Dee Dee, do their best to wreak havoc on his home.

In addition to the new episodes, the order will also include some special episodes that will take Oggy and his mischievous roaches out of their regular episode format to feature them in new environments and situations.

Xilam Animation Chairman and CEO Marc du Pontavice said, “Oggy's worldwide success continues and we are delighted to announce that Cartoon Network is committed to being Oggy's Asia-Pacific broadcaster, as well as one of the major production partners for the brand new season. We believe that Cartoon Network will lead this unique animation property in its quest to gain the hearts of kids throughout the region.”
