The Magician (French: Le Magicien) is a French animated television series created by Savin Yeatman-Eiffel (also the series' Head Writer),[1] produced by Xilam[2] between 1997 and 1998 and distributed by Gaumont. It aired on Fox in 1999, one of the very rare European shows to succeed in the US at the time.


At the dawn of the third millennium, a series of scientific discoveries and radical advances in technology have shaken the world. But enemies of old are still on the loose. Taking advantage of the carefree feeling of hope and optimism, the crime syndicate members along with Black Jack have discretely taken control of all key positions in this fast evolving society and are quickly shaping them to their favor. One man though sees through their conniving tricks, because he himself is a trickster, a manipulator, the king of them all: ACE COOPER - THE MAGICIAN. The Magician and his sidekick Cosmo work to fight Black Jack and other villains that would commit illegal activities.
