Wunschpunsch (entitled in French as Wounchpounch) is a French-Canadian animated series that is inspired by the novel The Night Wishes by Michael Ende.

In every episode, a wizard named Bubonic and his aunt, a witch named Tyrannia, must wreak havoc on the city in which they live or suffer a severe punishment from their supervisor, Maledictus T. Maggot. To be able to do so, they use an ancient magical parchment that, once utilized to activate a spell, said spell must be reversed within the next seven hours; otherwise, its effects will become permanent. To make sure the spells are reversed, Bubonic's and Tyrannia's pets, Mauricio the cat and Jacob the crow, must seek out Aunt Noah, an old turtle at the local zoo and head of the Animal Council, for a riddle on how to reverse the spell, which they usually manage to do in the nick of time. One of the episodes, Night of Wishes, is particularly inspired by the book. In that episode, the animals foil the spell by dropping a bell sound into the potion cauldron and Maledictus Maggot punishes Bubonic and Tyrannia for the foiled spell by attaching their homes, forcing them to live together. Unlike the other known punishments that never last enough to be seen in later episodes, this one seems to be permanent and has lasted at least five years (the animals recall it has been five years since it happened). Bubonic and Tyrannia are so clumsy that some of their spells bring trouble to themselves, and when the spells are undone, they feel a temporary relief that quickly ends when Maggot shows up to punish them for their failure.

The French dub first aired on Radio-Canada in Canada and TF1 in France. This show currently airs on Unis TV in Canada on April till September 2016.

The episodes in are commonly on YouTube in other language such as English. But the French episodes are missing, although Ryan Vo uploaded the French episodes daily until September 2, 2016, which is the last time that this show broadcast.

The voice cast has been found on this fansite.

UPDATE for February 25th, 2017: The French dub is now complete!
