French studio Xilam has recently made further progress in expanding the presence of their hit animated comedy series Oggy & the Cockroaches to even more regions in the world, as the third, fourth and fifth seasons of the show has been licensed to Disney Channel for Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, with plans to continue airing from Monday to Friday, 4:10 PM CEST starting this week.
For the uninitiated, Oggy & the Cockroaches focuses on the eternal frienemies Oggy, who is a chubby cat, and three pesky roaches who tend to alternate between setting Oggy up for hilarious pranks and helping him against the other pets in the neighborhood. The series has already been distributed to more than 160 countries all over the world, and has been watched in more than 600 million homes.
We are thrilled the Disney Channels in Germany, Switzerland and Austria are featuring Xilam’s flagship brand Oggy & the Cockroaches in their brilliant line ups, especially since Disney’s far- reaching network will enable kids across the countries to access the show during the summer holidays and thereafter. We believe that this spectacular new season, with such remarkable exposure, will bring fondness of the brand to a new and long lasting height,” commented Xilam’s Founder & President, Marc du Pontavice.
