Sly Cooper is an upcoming animated television series being produced by Paris-based Technicolor Animation Productions and Sony Interactive Entertainment. Global distribution will be handled by PGS Entertainment. The series was first announced in June 2017, but its status as of April 2021 is unknown.
Sly Cooper follows the adventures of an irresistibly charismatic raccoon, a modern-day Robin Hood, who restores justice to his city one theft at a time. Sly is aided by his two best friends, a muscular hippo named Murray and a brainy turtle named Bentley. Hot on Sly's trail is Inspector Carmelita Fox, a morally upright cop with an unfortunate crush on the charming bandit, as well as a band of villains, each one more strange and colorful than the last. Mixing humor, action and a remarkable cast of characters, Sly Cooper promises to be an unforgettable series.
The series was announced on June 14, 2017. It was the 11th most watched at MIPJunior 2017, and its first script received five stars from pre-buyers around the world. In July 2018, the official website for the series was updated with a release date: October 2019 for the first half of the season (episodes 1-26) and July 2020 for the second half of the season (episodes 27-52). Within several days of this update being discovered, the dates were removed from the page. The series has since been removed from both the Technicolor and PGS Entertainment websites, and its status is unknown as of April 2021.
