Robinson Sucroe (also known as Robinson Sucroë in French) is a 1994 animated series. It was created by France Animation in France and Cinar (now known as Cookie Jar Entertainment) in Canada, which was eventually found to have infringed Claude Robinson's work Les aventures de Robinson Curiosité. The show was a loose adaptation of Robinson Crusoe set with a Looney Tunes twist.
In 2009, Quebec Superior Court Justice Claude Auclair, in a 240-page decision, awarded Claude Robinson $5.2 million in damages. In the 1990s, Cinar, now renamed Cookie Jar Entertainment, copied the work Robinson had previously unsuccessfully presented to them in the 1980s. The company appealed the decision.
As of December 23, 2013, the Supreme Court of Canada, in a unanimous decision, affirmed the judgment in favor of Robinson. In the final judgement, Cinar Corp. will have to reimburse part of the fees incurred by Robinson and this also includes 4 million Canadian dollars in damages. This judgement ended an 18-year battle between Claude Robinson and the Cinar Corp.
