Marc du Pontavice, founder and president at Xilam Animation, commented: “We are thrilled the Disney Channels in Germany, Switzerland and Austria are featuring Xilam’s flagship brand Oggy & the Cockroaches in their brilliant line ups, especially since Disney’s far-reaching network will enable kids across the countries to access the show during the summer holidays and thereafter. We believe that this spectacular new season, with such remarkable exposure, will bring fondness of the brand to new and long lasting heights.”
