The MoonScoop Group is a French animation and production company that creates and publishes animated television series. Its corporate headquarters are located in Paris, France, along with offices in the United Kingdom and the United States. It was established in 2003. It is most famously known for Code Lyoko and its recent fifth season Code Lyoko Evolution.


One of MoonScoop's predecessors was France Animation, founded in 1984.[1] France Animation went on to become the original producers of Les Mondes Engloutis ("Spartakus and the Sun Beneath the Sea"). By the early 2000s, it bought Antefilms Production—an outfit created by Christophe Di Sabatino and Benoît Di Sabatino in 1990—to form the present day MoonScoop.[2] MoonScoop's holdings also include Funbag Animation Studios.

Notable shows

Code Lyoko

Main article: Code Lyoko

Code Lyoko is a French animated series featuring both conventional animation and computer-generated imagery, produced by Antefilms during the first season and MoonScoop during the second, in association with the France 3 television network and Canal J. Code Lyoko is about a group of four boarding school students enrolled at Kadic Junior High School, named Jeremie, Odd, Ulrich, and Yumi. The students try to help a virtual girl named Aelita leave the virtual world of Lyoko (found inside a supercomputer housed in the basement of an abandoned factory near their school), and enter the real world.

A megalomaniac digital entity named Xana, bent on world domination, has taken over the supercomputer in charge of Lyoko. If the group is able to get Aelita to the activated tower(s) out of the more than forty scattered about four of Lyoko's five regions, she can neutralize Xana's attack on the real world; then the supercomputer can reverse time to just before the attack, leaving no one except the group to remember any of the events that transpired. To complicate the situation, they must do this while ensuring that their classmates and teachers are not killed (because going back in time cannot bring back those killed by Xana), and deal with the various personality clashes they have with them at the same time.

Hero: 108

Main article: Hero: 108

A long time ago humans and animals lived together in harmony. But a wicked wizard named High Roller controlled 2 animals and tricked the other animals into thinking that humans were their enemies. Chaos reigned until a group of warriors, Lin Chung, Jumpy Ghostface, Mystique Sonia, Commander ApeTrully, Mr. No Hands, and Mighty Ray, had joined forces to end the war.
