most malaysian would by now at least heard of the name Upin & Ipin. the animation about the twins Upin and Ipin, product of Les'Copaque Production. in my opinion, 'U&I' have been a huge success for LCP and the malaysian animation industry. not many local animation and cartoon managed to reach the kind of success and popularity they did.
Upin & Ipin even have their own wikipedia page!
maybe past locally made cartoons that is as famous as Upin&Ipin is probably (quality aside) Keluangman and Sang Kancil. there may be some other titles that is as famous but this is just the names i can think of right now. Kampung Boy animation is the idea of Dato' Lat but not produced locally.
last week (Nov 6, 2009) Les'Copaque Production posted on their blog that Upin&Ipin will be premiere on Disney Channel (asia) on 23rd November 2009. that is next monday, at 3.30pm in Malaysia AND the Philippines.
