In 2010, a CGI animated series based on Pac-Man was announced to be in the works. At the time, the purpose of most children's shows was solely for toilet humor. During 2010 and 2011, the drama then named Pac-Man: The Adventure Begins was submitted to several children's channels. However, most of the channels rejected the show because they did not want a character from the 80's. In 2011, a 3-minute pilot was created. The show was to air on Disney XD and have premiered in 2012. However, this was delayed to 2013 because Namco Bandai Games wanted a 3DS game rather than a DS game. When promos aired in spring of 2013, they named the show Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures and named the unnamed pink and red characters Cylindria and Spiral, respectively. The first episode of Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures aired on June 15, 2013.
