Awesome Magical Tales (also known as Teenage Fairytale Dropouts in the first season) is an animated series created by Adolfo Martinez Vara and José C. Garcia de Letona. Inspired by the characters from the 2003 Mexican animated film, Magos y Gigantes, the series was created and produced by Ánima Estudios and co-produced with SLR Productions, Home Plate Entertainment, and Telegael. It made its debut on Seven Network in Australia on 31 December 2012. In Mexico, the show premiered on digital and streaming platforms, dubbed as Generación Fairytale.

The show later premiered in the United States on the Hub Network on 31 May 2014. It subsequently was dropped and did not air its full run due to the October 2014 conversion of the network to Discovery Family.

Ánima Estudios has launched an official YouTube channel for the Spanish-language version of the show on 7 May 2015, with an English-language version being launched a week later on 14 May 2015.

The show has been recently acquired by Bejuba! Entertainment for new distribution rights and was renamed Awesome Magical Tales. The show has also been renewed for a second season by Australia's ABC Me after successful ratings during its domestic broadcast.

Synopsis

Set in a fairy tale-like setting, three friends, Jeremiah, the son of the giant in Jack and Beanstalk and Trafalgar, the nephew of Merlin the Wizard, a wingless fairy named Fury, the daughter of Tooth Fairy, live through a tough life as teenagers and are determined to be themselves, despite their parents' whim and their fairy tale origins.
