Plot[edit]

Lucky Luke is a cowboy who shoots faster than his own shadow. With the help of his faithful horse Jolly Jumper (the world's smartest horse) and sometimes also Rintindumb (the world's dumbest dog), he maintains peace and order in the Wild West. He hunts down desperadoes, keeps sharpshooters like Billy the Kid in check and constantly recaptures and returns The Daltons to prison.

Production[edit]

Ten years after the last series of Lucky Luke episodes, Xilam has launched the production of new ones. The hope for Marc du Pontavice for this series is that it has to fill in the gap between the series already aired "which have aged" the new episodes "which have not aged". Fifty-two episodes were made with a budget of 120 million francs (just over EUR 18 million). These episodes are new stories written for the series.

  • Because he died in July 2001, and the show was not released until September, apart from a few rushes, Morris never viewed the series.
  • The series uses the graphic process Morris used that employs colors to differentiate a character according to its value in the (foreground, background), according to his mood state (green rage, ...) or to describe a mood (red fire, night blue, ...).

Some characters are caricatures (Garcimore, Roberto Benigni, Woody Allen, ...)

Broadcast history[edit]

The series was broadcast in France on channel France 3 in The Minikeums preview. The series was later aired on France 2, Fox Kids /Jetix, Canal J, France 5, and since 7 July 2014, on 6ter. In Belgium, the series was broadcast on The Three [8] and is currently on Kadet (Belgium). In Switzerland it was broadcast on RTS Two, and in Quebec on Télé-Québec. Unusual for a cartoon, the series has been broadcast in prime time resulting in an increase in popularity. Viewing figures were close to 4 million viewers every Sunday night.

The series was also broadcast in Germany under the name of Lucky Luke - Die neuen Abenteuer (Lucky Luke - The New Adventures).
