Disney Channel has greenlighted The Curse of Molly McGee, an animated buddy comedy series about a tween optimist and grumpy ghost from the Emmy-winning duo behind The Penguins of Madagascar.

The series from Disney Television Animation follows the adventures of Molly, who lives to make the world a better place, and Scratch, whose joy comes from spreading misery. When one of Scratch’s spells backfires, he finds himself forever cursed in Molly’s presence.
