Code Lyoko is a French animated science-fiction and adventure series produced by animation studio MoonScoop and aired on France 3 and Canal J in France, and on Cartoon Network in the United States. The original series ran from 2003 to 2007, and a live-action/CGI animated sequel series titled Code Lyoko: Evolution was released in 2012. The series focuses on a group of adolescents who try to stop an evil computer virus from creating disasters in the physical world.


A young student named Jeremie discovers a supercomputer in an abandoned factory. After activating the supercomputer, Jeremie discovers the virtual world of Lyoko, the malevolent artificial intelligence X.A.N.A. which attempts to free himself of the computer's confines, and the beautiful girl Aelita who is trapped inside. To help save Aelita and stop X.A.N.A.'s attempts to cause disasters in the real world, Jeremie enlists the help of his 3 friends Ulrich, Yumi, and Odd, who travel to Lyoko to stop X.A.N.A from the inside.


Originally inspired by their earlier short film Les enfants font leur cinéma (shown below, left), creators Thomas Romain and Tania Palumbo created the pilot called Garage Kids in 2001 (shown below, right), which later evolved into Code Lyoko two years later in 2003. Romain eventually left the series to work on the Japanese anime series Ōban Star-Racers.

The locations for the factory and boarding school featured in Code Lyoko were based on the now demolished Renault production plant in Boulogne-Billancourt and Lycée Lakanal in Sceaux, respectively. Code Lyoko began airing on September 3rd, 2003, and ran for 4 years until November 10th, 2007. Five years later, on Decmeber 19th, 2012, a sequel series titled Code Lyoko: Evolution aired on the French channels France 4 and Canal J. The series ran for a year, and ended on the one year anniversary of it's original episode on December 19th, 2013.
