Earthworm Jim was a huge hit on the SEGA Mega Drive and the Super Nintendo back in the 90’s and it has emerged today that the developers at Interplay Entertainment are working hard to create an Earthworm Jim animated TV series. Interplay recently formed a new TV and film studio division and has since joined forces with British-based animation studio, Passion Pictures, with the hope of creating an Earthworm Jim-themed cartoon.

“I remember loving ‘Earthworm Jim’ as a kid. And there’s so much potential in this story universe: a galaxy full of animals battling for power. Jim is an earthworm in a universe where Earth is nothing more than a myth. His struggle to find meaning is surreal and comical, but it’s also relatable.”Director, Michel K. Parandi
“We are thrilled for the opportunity to create a show for an iconic character that we grew up both playing on Genesis, and watching on TV. The fans have matured and deserve a current take as we bring in new audiences.”Producer, Aaron Billet
