A new CG animated series based on the classic international kids’ series Calimero will be debuting in France via TF1 on February 9, 2014. The new series will feature the loveable little black chicken, which was created by Nino and Toni Pagot, and Ignazio Colnaghi.
The new Calimero series will consist of 14 x 11 minute episodes and will also air on Italy’s RAI, Germany’s Super RTL, Disney Junior, TV Tokyo, Tele Quebec, and TSR in Swtizerland. The original series ran for 290 episodes and aired in more than 80 countries.
“We are eager for the new Calimero series to conquer the hearts of a whole new generation in the same way the original character had in our youth” said Gaumont Animation Managing Director Pierre Belaisch.
