Rubicon and MGM are currently producing a new cartoon series entitled Pink Panther & Pals. According to Variety, the show will feature the Pink Panther as a kid.

There will be twenty-six episodes in all. The show will be distributed worldwide by MGM, except for the Middle East. Rubicon will be handling the distribution duties there.

Rubicon CEO Randa Ayoubi stated, "The Middle East is an untapped market in terms of entertainment. It's potentially a huge market in terms of the number of people and the age of the population, with so much of it skewed under the age of 25.''

The show goes into production starting in August.
