[[quoteright:144:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Raymantvseries_7447.jpg]] Running for only four episodes in 1999, this is ''the'' most obscure entry in the ''Franchise/{{Rayman}}'' video game franchise. This series starts out with Rayman as a captive in Rigatoni's circus, along with Lac Mac, Cookie, Bettina and Flips. After escaping the circus, they have to find their way through the city of Aeropolis, with inspector Grub hot on their trail.

Where exactly this all fits in the ''Rayman'' continuity is anyone's guess. Notably, Razorbeard, the antagonist of ''VideoGame/{{Rayman 2}}: The Great Escape'', does show up in the first episode, although he is reduced to a minion of Rigatoni. The series was supposed to run for thirteen episodes, so it might have tied in at some point.

!!Tropes include:

* AdaptationalWimp: Razorbeard, the BigBad of ''Rayman 2'', is an incompetent lackey.
* AllCGICartoon: A very early example.
* AmbiguouslyHuman: Bettina's species is not confirmed but she looks like a human girl. In this case, she would qualify as a TokenHuman.
* BigBad: Rigatoni.
* BottleEpisode: The last episode takes place almost entirely in Grub's house.
* ButtMonkey: Both Cookie and Grub.
* CanonForeigner: The other four characters who hang around Rayman have ''never'' appeared in anything else.
* CaptainColorbeard: Razorbeard.
* CutShort: The show was canceled after four episodes and never gave a conclusion to the story.
* DemotedToExtra: Razorbeard, the BigBad of ''VideoGame/{{Rayman 2}}: The Great Escape'', is reduced to a lackey of Rigatoni and is only seen in a single episode.
* GuileHero: Rayman uses his wits and ideas for the majority of the series more often than he uses his powers like in the second episode.
* GreatEscape: The first episode.
* IdiotBall: Similar to a [[Film/TheLastAirbender certain film]], the prisoners fail to realize that Lac Mac, being able to bend steel bars, should be able to escape from his cage with relative ease until Rayman tells them.
* IJustWantToBeFree: What kicks off the plot; Rayman and friends are slaves in Rigatoni's circus, and escape in the first episode. Rigatoni hires Grub to recapture them.
* PrisonEpisode: The third episode, where the heroes venture into an asylum to break Cookie out.
* PunchClockVillain: Inspector Grub. In the final episode, Rayman and his friends even set up a date for him.
* ScoobyDoobyDoors: Happens in the asylum.
* ShoutOut: A few jack-in-the-boxes looking like Ed from ''Videogame/TonicTrouble'' are spotted in the first episode.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: A [[DumbMuscle strong yet dumb]], primarily blue-and-white creature who happens to be a friend of Rayman? Are we talking about Globox or Lac Mac?
