Ubisoft Motion Pictures is hard at work with their studios to put together 78 seven-minute episodes that will join together, airing on TV via Nickelodeon.
The 78 episodes will actually form 26 half-hour shows in 2013. Nickelodeon is the "most recognized" brand for children's entertainment, enthused Ubisoft.
It was 2006's Rayman Raving Rabbids that debuted the Rabbids which proved a huge hit with fans and soon spawned a series of spin-off videogames with Raving Rabbids Alive & Kicking due for released on Xbox 360 and Kinect this November.
"Nickelodeon is one of the world's leading entertainment brands for children and families, and Ubisoft is thrilled to be partnering with Nickelodeon to deliver unique television programming to its viewers," said Jean-Julien Baronnet, CEO of Ubisoft Motion Pictures.
"As the world's most recognized entertainment brand for children and families, Nickelodeon is the perfect vehicle to share the zany Rabbids characters and their crazy adventures with television audiences around the globe."
"This partnership represents a major milestone in Ubisoft's strategy to expand its brands to new media, thereby attracting new audiences to its games." The Rabbids will undoubtedly capture an audience on Nickelodeon who have always favoured quirky shows.
