Out goes Oggy, in goes Clarence

An article on the change of hands of OatC on Asian feeds of Cartoon Network.
Cartoon Network feeds in South East Asia (CN SEA proper, CN TW and CN PH) have lost the rights of Oggy and the Cockroaches to Nickelodeon SEA.  One of the seasons was co-produced with CN SEA.
This decision also affects India, where Oggy and the Cockroaches will move from the local CN to the local Nickelodeon.
CN SEA, CN PH and CN TW have all lost the rights to air it on January 1st. It’s still airing on CN IN and CN PK, despite the announcement.
The last known OatC-related marathon, Happy Birthday Oggy, aired on the Pakistani feed on December 25th, anniversary of Muhammad Ali Jinnah, founder of the modern-day country of Pakistan.
The South East Asian feeds premiered Clarence on January 5th. In terms of third-party shows, Gon, Monk the Little Dog and Fish N’ Chips (this one also airs on CN KR) are the only shows of the kind airing on the main regional feed.
EDIT: The Thai version of Boomerang has also removed Oggy and the Cockroaches. More details on the schedule below:
