Explore One of the Greatest Stories Ever Told

Animated Series

Two animated TV series based on Les Misérables have been made. In 1992, French animation studios produced a 26-episode series. The series was aired as part of a children's TV program called Club Dorothée. Likely because it was aired as part of a children's program, the show's ending greatly deviated from that of the novel.

In 2007, the studio Nippon Animation created a 52-episode series called Les Misérables: Shoujo Cosette. The show aired in Japan from January to December 2007. Unlike the French cartoon from 1992, Shoujo Cosette follows the plot of the novel very closely, even more so than the musical! It is the longest television adaptation of Les Misérables. The length of all episodes combined is 26 hours!
