NICKELODEON GREENLIGHTS SECOND SEASON OF ANIMATED SERIES RABBIDS INVASION, BASED ON UBISOFT’S WILDLY POPULAR

RABBIDS VIDEO GAMES

 

Sophomore Season to Include 26 Half-Hour Episodes

 

 

 

BURBANK, Calif.–December 17, 2013–The wacky adventures continue with a second season order of Nickelodeon’s CG-animated series Rabbids Invasion. The announcement was made today by Russell Hicks, President of Content Development and Production, Nickelodeon. The series follows a mysterious breed of creatures known as Rabbids who often create mayhem and chaos whilst exploring the human world. While still continuing to discover new things, places, animals and creatures on Earth, the second season storyline will introduce a recurring goal for the Rabbids – get to the moon! New episodes from the second season will wreak havoc beginning mid-2014.

 

“Our partnership with Ubisoft’s one-of-a-kind creatures has generated much success and laughter over this past year. Bringing them to Nickelodeon proved to resonate with our audience, and we look forward to continuing the wild and zany adventures for a second season,” said Hicks.

“Partnering with Nickelodeon has been an excellent opportunity for Ubisoft Motion Pictures to share and expand the Rabbids brand to a television audience,” said Jean-Julien Baronnet, Chief Executive Officer, Ubisoft Motion Pictures. “Securing the second season of Rabbids Invasion validates its strength and potential and we know the show will continue to entertain and delight viewers with each new episode.”

 

For the Rabbids, everything is a source of wonder and amusement, and these indestructible and uncontrollable creatures have absolutely no respect for the social rules that govern society.  There are no laws, no rules of the road.  They are all about having fun and their only language is a crazy-sounding “Bwaaaaaah!”

Viewers can log on to Nick.com/rabbids for new content, games and other fun extras including “Rabbids Sing the Classics,” where the wacky creatures sing their rendition of the popular song “Heart and Soul,”  “Can You Find the Rabbid?,” an unexpected spotting game, and “The Right Way vs. The Rabbid Way,” where the Rabbids show fans their versions of completing tasks.

 

Created and produced by Ubisoft Motion Pictures, this new series brings to television the hysterical physical comedy that is the hallmark of the wildly successful Rabbids video games.  Created in 2006, the wacky, mischievous Rabbids have become a global sensation with over 14 million video games sold worldwide and hundreds of licensed products that feature the Rabbids characters.   Viral videos starring the Rabbids have attracted more than 72 million views on YouTube.   The Rabbids phenomenon currently extends across multiple genres including parodies, videos, illustrations and consumer products.   The television series will also generate a wide range of opportunity for Ubisoft, with a string of partnerships for every major category including apparel, accessories, toys, back-to-school, a Rabbids ride in a theme park in France (Futuroscope) and more.

    This is the funniest cartoon to come along in a very very long time. I’m 61 years old and I laugh until my sides hurt. You have to see this cartoon, You don’t know what you’re missing.

    Nickelodeon has cancelled so many great cartoons not too long after they premiered (El Tigre, Mighty B) but this gets to live on?
    Mark my words, most of this second season will be burned off on sister channel, Nicktoons.
