Super RTL to Bring ‘Calimero’ to Germany

Gaumont Animation’s new animated CGI series “Calimero” (104 x 11) has been acquired by German Broadcaster Super RTL in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

The series, which is produced by Gaumont, Calidra, Italy’s Studio Campedelli  and Japanese partners TV Tokyo and Kodansha, is a re-make of the 1960’s series of the same name.

“We instantly fell in love with Gaumont’s idea to make a fresh animated version of the well-known brand Calimero,” says Carsten Goettel, program director, RTL. “Now that we saw the first episode we are even more thrilled about the quality and the beautiful look of the new CGI series. And we are more than sure that our audience, kids and parents alike, will share our enthusiasm and look forward to bringing it on air in Germany.”
