Rayman: The Animated Series was a computer-animated TV programme based on the Rayman video games series. It was produced in 1999 as an accompaniment to the release of Rayman 2: The Great Escape in the same year. Although it was planned to be a full 13-episode series that was meant to be aired on TV worldwide the following year, the series was cancelled and only four episodes were produced, presumably due to poor writing and lack of funds despite being funded by the government of Quebec, Canada, and they were aired in very few countries in Europe, notably France, Germany and the Netherlands.

Plot

Rayman had already been captured by Admiral Razorbeard and is being held at Rigatoni's intergalactic circus, where he is made to do tricks. He soon meets four other prisoners, Betina, Cookie, Flips and Lac-Mac, who is the star of the circus show, and plans their escape. When they do escape, they end up on the run in the forest city of Aeropolis, where Inspector Grub is pursuing them under the orders of Rigatoni. Due to the cancellation of the series, it is unknown as to what was supposed to happen after the end of the last episode.

Although very rare, the Rayman animated series is available on VHS and DVD. An English VHS was released in the United States, while a French one can be found in France and Belgium.

This is most likely to be found on major auction sites such as eBay.
