MIPCOM News: Dupuis Takes Kid Paddle to Cannes

In conjunction with its attendance at MIPCOM in Cannes, France, Dupuis has announced that it will be launching its new TV series KID PADDLE. The show follows Kid Paddle and his friends Big Band and Horace, whose imaginations transport the troublesome trio into videogames, horror films and sci-fi comics. The show has already developed a following in France and Benelux and is available in 26x26 or 52x13 packages in both French and English. Also available are 15 three minute Flash shorts. Dupuis co-produces the series with M6 France, Spectra, Teletoon Canada and RTBF Belgium. The show launched in Canada in September 2003.

Jean-Philippe Doutrelugne, director of international publishing, licensing and audiovisual at Dupuis, said, The build-up and buzz around the property in terms of TV, video, multimedia, licensing, promotions and the Web in France and Benelux has been quite considerable over the past year. We hope to mirror this performance at first in key European territories by searching the best possible partners in all the activities for the most effective visibility across the board.

Dupuis is a French comic book publishing company. For more information, visit
