Hubert and Takako (known as Hubert et Takako in French) is a French animated comedy series which was produced by Marc du Pontavice at Xilam and created and directed by Hugo Gittard and premiered in France on November 3, 2013 on Canal+.[1] 78 episodes of 7 minutes are produced. The opening sequence is composed by Vincent Artaud.


Just about any pig would adapt pretty easily to the presence of a fly, but for Hubert, who aspires to becoming the archetype of the modern, clean-cut guy, Takako is messing up his plans! This deliciously out-of-control fly is that little glitch in Hubert's well oiled cogs. Worst, she accepts him just the way he is. But isn't that what true friendship is all about?
