Zag Entertainment’s Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir television show won the Best Animated Series Award at the 2018 Teen Choice Awards, beating out some well-known competition.

Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir beat fellow nominees Bob’s Burgers, Rick and Morty, Steven Universe, Family Guy, and The Simpsons to be named Best Animated Series 2018. The animated series is produced by French studios Zagtoon and Method Animation. Initially released in the U.S. on Nickelodeon, Netflix acquired the streaming rights to seasons 1 – 3.

Action Lab Comics produces both an adapted comic book series based on the TV show, Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir (see “Action Lab to Publish 'Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir' Comics”),  as well as original tales in Miraculous Adventures of Ladybug & Cat Noir written by creator Thomas Astruc and other TV series writers. The next Action Lab release will be the stand-alone Christmas special Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir – Santa Claws, releasing in October.

The series follows Parisian teenager Marinette, a normal girl with a big secret. With her magical kwami friend Tikki, she transforms into the crime fighter Ladybug. She is aided by Cat Noir, who she doesn’t know is actually a boy from her school named Adrien who she has a crush on. They fight Hawk Moth, a villain who uses magic moth-like akuma to turn people into supervillains.
