Raving Rabbids bouncing to TV in 2013

Ubisoft commissioning 26 half-hour episodes based on unstable Rayman supporting characters; series due to air on Nickelodeon in 2013.

Ubisoft's Raving Rabbids have embarked upon adventures on a range of platforms including the Game Boy Advance, Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, Nintendo DS, and Wii. Now, the dimwitted rabbits are landing on a new platform: TV.

Nickelodeon wants 13 hours of Rabbids.

Ubisoft this week announced a licensing agreement with Nickelodeon that will bring a new series based on the Raving Rabbids franchise to the child-themed network beginning in 2013. As part of the deal, Ubisoft will create 78 seven-minute CG shorts, and Nickelodeon will air them as 26 half-hour episodes around the world (except for Ubisoft's home country of France, where the show will be carried by France Televisions). Neither Ubisoft nor Nickelodeon shared further details concerning the collaboration, like a name for the series or any plot details.

While the Raving Rabbids television show may be far away, the next entry in the video game series--Raving Rabbids: Alive & Kicking--is much closer. Due out on November 8 exclusively for the Xbox 360 Kinect, Alive & Kicking places an emphasis on augmented reality minigames.

whelp now they actually have another video game show besides pokemon. However, I wonder if remain will actually appear in the show or will the rabbids take front seat like they have recently?

I could see this being a hit between ages 5-13 but beyond that, not really.

I was watching Mario and Sonic X the other day wondering where all the video game shows went. Glad to hear this!

you would think that the original mascot, rayman, would get a show of his though eh? Raving Rabbids 1 & 2 were good, and maybe even TV Party, but ever since they lost rayman, they lost my support. I'm still interested on how this is gonna play out. The Rabbids are fun :)

I despise the rabbid games, but I think that they are perfect for this.

I'll pass. The Rabbid games are tolerable, but not this.

I prefer if the Rabbids have their own show and stay off the games.
