Xilam's canine comedy RINTINDUMB (75 x 1 minute 30 seconds), featuring Lucky Luke's sidekick, the dumbest dog in the west, has been picked up by a raft of broadcasters at MIPTV. The animated series, which debuted in September on France 3, has been licensed to Mediaset (Italy), Dutch kids TV channel Z@pp, TV5 (France) and TeleQuebec Canada.
Ed Galton, Xilam's evp, business development, commented, "Having launched the series at MIPCOM, we're delighted to be returning to Cannes with a host of deals and widespread interest from buyers. RINTINDUMB works on a number of levels: it's based on a popular franchise, it has high production values, it appeals to a wide demographic and its short format makes it relatively easy to schedule."
Based on the LUCKY LUKE comics by Morris and Goscinny, Rintindumb proves to be more hazardous than all the angry Sioux and gun-toting bandits put together.
