Teen optimist Molly McGee lives to make the world a better place, fix what has gone wrong, and spread joy! Meanwhile, cantankerous ghost Scratch lives to make the world a worse place, break what has gone right, and spread misery. When a curse from Scratch backfires, he finds himself forever bound to Molly. Despite that, Scratch and Molly form an unlikely friendship that guides each of them through the ups and downs of their respective worlds!
News of the series was first announced on July 23, 2019, by senior vice president Animation Strategy, Meredith Roberts Quill. Emmy® Award-winning duo Bill Motz and Bob Roth will serve as executive producers with Emmy Award-winner Steve Loter.
Roberts said, "Our studio is bustling as we continue to bolster our development slate of projects across multiple platforms. We are delighted to embark on this journey with Bill, Bob, and Steve with ‘The Curse of Molly McGee,’ one of many projects we are excited to see come to life for kids and families to enjoy.
