'Oggy' to Party Across Paris
Xilam Animation is celebrating the 20th anniversary of “Oggy and the Cockroaches” with a month-long celebration kicking off in France.
Planned events include:
- A themed escape room in Paris that brings the show’s fifth season to life through a branded experience involving puzzles and a clock;
- A partnership with Musée des Arts et Métiers (The Museum of Arts & Crafts) in Paris that will offer young visitors a chance to partake in animation workshops, one of which will be held by Xilam animators, and to receive a booklet that outlines the history of the series.
- A partnership with L'Aquarium de Paris (The Paris Aquarium), to offer every child an “Oggy and the Cockroaches”-branded booklet with a treasure hunt based on the museum and;
- A branded truck that will tour six French cities including Lyon, Montpellier, Toulouse, Bordeaux, Angers and Paris, beginning later this month and offer fans a chance to interact with costumed character meet and greets, episode screenings, competitions, games, workshops, goodie bags and more.
“For two decades, ‘Oggy and the Cockroaches’ has been entertaining audiences all around the world with its fantastic characters, slapstick humor and surprise-filled storylines,” says Marc du Pontavice, founder and president, Xilam Animation. “After an unprecedented 20 years of nonstop content production in France, ‘Oggy’ is now one of just a handful of French animation properties to reach its milestone 20th anniversary, and even after all this time, ‘Oggy’ has never been so popular and commercially successful. We’re delighted to be marking this landmark moment with a hugely exciting activity lineup which ensures there’s something for fans of all ages to enjoy.”
