The Reporter reports:

Despite buyer skepticism, cartoon picked up by channels in Europe and Latin America.

... Broadcasters from the U.K., Italy, Spain, France and Germany have boarded The Governator, which was one of the most talked-about project at this year's international TV market Mip TV. Channels including RTL2 in Germany and Cartoon Network Latin America snatched up the animated actioner on the basis of a short trailer Schwarzenegger screened ... "I've never had a reaction to a series like this,” said Andy Heyward, who is producing the Governator series through his A Squared Entertainment shingle. Comic legend Stan Lee is developing the series and will write the scripts. ...

So now I know what Arnold's seven years of being governor were actually about: Building himself a new action franchise.

... The Governator cartoon series is set to deliver next year. A 3D feature film based on the show, which imagines the ex-governor of California as a Batman-like crime fighter, is planned for 2013.

It hasn't sold stateside yet, but just wait.

So...foreign countries think it's Really Neat that Arnold was elected governor, and would probably turn into a cool action hero like in the movies if he did?
That sounds about correct.
(Seeing as it's pretty much the reason Californians elected him in the first place.)

Wow. I assumed the whole thing would be a comedy but from the trailer it looks deadly serious. The Governator doesn't even look like Ahnuld. Ugh.

You're right. The hair color looks more natural in the cartoon than in real life
