Talking Cartoon Crossover Comic Magic with Butch Hartman | SDCC 2017

Butch Hartman is a busy man. Even while show-running two animated television series on Nickelodeon right now (the fan favorite The Fairly OddParents and the recently debuted Bunsen is a Beast), co-creating the new 3 o’Clock Club comic for Lion Forge (along with Jordan B. Gorfinkel), and constantly developing new content for his Noog Network app and YouTube channel as side projects, Butch is never one to let his creative energy flag. While it would seem promoting those projects during the hectic days of Comic Con would be enough, there was an extra-special surprise for attendees here in San Diego: an exclusive mini-comic featuring Butch titled Fairly OddPhantom!


The comic, alternatively subtitled as Let’s Rescue Butch Hartman!, acts as both a response and spiritual successor to a short crossover video posted on YouTube earlier this year featuring all the protagonists from Butch’s Nick shows (besides the aforementioned OddParents and Beast, the clip also features the beloved Danny Phantom and TUFF Puppy), who all meet up for the first time on screen. That short (featured below) has been watched nearly 2 million times on YouTube alone and shared countless more times on Facebook and other streaming platforms.

“We wanted to do a special and unique comic just for Comic Con,” Hartman told The Beat during a brief conversation during last day of the convention. “The brain trust at Nickelodeon—meaning me and one of my writers [George Goodchild]—decided to do a comic book featuring me as a cartoon character.” And if that wasn’t enough, Butch also wrote the comic and did the pencils, while Benji Williams and Marcus Valazquez helped round out the creative team.

The hook of the story works in contrast to the previously released short. Whereas the video released earlier this year concerned itself with the respective shows’ respective main heroes meeting and teaming, the comic focuses around those shows’ villains, and their nefarious plot to kidnap their creator so that they can be the stars of their own cartoons.

And the best part is, everything lands. The comic contains all the trademarks of Hartman’s Nick oeuvre. It’s wacky, wild, extremely meta, and tons of fun.

And for being a Comic Con freebie, all the love and heart is there. “People think comics are easy to make, but it’s hard work, especially short ones. [NOTE: This comic is only five pages long]. Still, despite its brief length, Fairly OddPhantom manages to pack a dense amount of comic within its pages. Naturally, the in-jokes are plentiful and there are even cameos from some other Nickelodeon shows who turn up during the action (no spoilers here!). With Hartman working on so many projects old and new, are we entering the age of the Hartman Animated Universe (a la Marvel)? “I am my own Stan Lee,” Butch chuckles.

Can’t wait to see what’s next!

The Kids Who Grew Up on Nickelodeon's Nicktoons Got a Dose of Nostalgia at Comic-Con 2017 | #NickSDCC

Nickelodeon rolled into Comic-Con International: San Diego 2017 with the most effective weapon they could possibly unleash on millennials: nostalgia. The network teased footage from a pair of new TV movies that revive two of its most popular '90s franchises, Hey Arnold! and Rocko’s Modern Life, and also hosted a panel on the evergreen series SpongeBob SquarePants. As always, Nick isn't just catering to kids — and now they're specifically targeting the generation of now-adult kids who grew up on Nick’s animated programming.


Nickelodeon's proprietary animated offerings, called Nicktoons, date back almost 26 years to August 1991, when Doug, Rugrats and The Ren & Stimpy Show debuted. All iconic in their own right, they were followed shortly thereafter by a litany of now-classic shows, including The Wild Thornberrys, Rocket Power (which was many non-L.A. kids’ first introduction to Venice Beach), The Fairly OddParents, and Invader Zim. These are just some of Nickelodeon's iconic shows from late '90s and early '00s. Now, two decades later, with demand for nostalgic content being at an all-time high, the executives at Nickelodeon know the time is right to bring back some of their classic programs.

“Millennials, when they were kids, they were loving those Nickelodeon shows, and now they’re grown-up adults, but they still love those Nickelodeon shows,” Chris Viscardi, Senior Vice President of Animation Content Development for Nickelodeon, explained to L.A. Weekly. In 2016, Nickelodeon celebrated Nicktoons’ 25th anniversary, and revived some nostalgia shows, including Hey Arnold! and Rocko’s Modern Life, so by the time this year’s Comic-Con rolled around, they had something ready to show audiences.



For their part, the shows' casts and creative teams have enjoyed reuniting. “It’s like it was yesterday,” Anndi McAfee, the voice of Phoebe on Hey Arnold! says of returning to the show. “I was really not expecting how amazing it felt to get back in the groove,” Francesca Marie Smith, who voices Helga, adds. The show’s creator, Craig Bartlett, who’s been pitching this TV movie for 15 years, says, “Its time has come, because the super-motivated social media experts [who grew up watching the show] are out there, working in the business now, and they’re saying, ‘Why don’t we make shows like Hey Arnold! again?’” Smith adds, “For me it’s been really interesting watching things in Hey Arnold! become a part of pop culture. ‘Move it, football head!’ or even, ‘Stoop kid’s afraid to leave his stoop’ — things like that are normal, people say these things in normal conversations now.”

And then there's SpongeBob SquarePants, which debuted in 1999, and has been airing regularly ever since. “Funny is funny, and the characters are so solid that you want to keep coming back to see what they’re up to,” Mr. Lawrence, who voices Plankton and is the show’s story editor, says. “And it’s not topical at all,” Tom Kenny, the voice of SpongeBob, adds. “SpongeBob doesn’t seem to have a generation gap.” Still, they find it strange how important the show is to the rest of the world. “We became part of pop culture, we are referenced in movies, War of the Worlds, countless comic strips in the newspapers mention us in there. We are iconic in that part of pop culture,” Lawrence says.

“The 90s Nicktoon thing is such a thing now; at this Comic-Con, Hey Arnold! came back, Rocko’s Modern Life did — we started out together. The weird thing is, of those NickToons, SpongeBob hasn’t gone away,” Kenny says. “SpongeBob has been ubiquitous for the whole time, and he’s a 90s Nicktoon, he started in ’99.” Clancy Brown, who voices Mr. Krabs, adds, “You don’t need to reinvent it, you don’t need to update it, it just works.”

The shows might not need updating but Butch Hartman, who created Fairly OddParents and Danny Phantom, takes his other responsibilities seriously. “Being a parent is not an easy job, which is why we try to create cartoons parents know are safe for their kids. They can trust us, because you're really asking people to trust you with their kids, when you’re putting shows on the air,” Hartman says. “Which is why, on Fairly OddParents, we have jokes that kids understand, but then jokes that adults can laugh at as well. I get so many kids coming up to me now, saying, ‘Oh, Mr. Hartman, I love your show, I grew up with it; I understand all the jokes now!’”

That kind of dual-purpose humor was something Nickelodeon encouraged all its early animated shows to use, and its something newer shows try to emulate. “When you can play on those two levels, I think they can be really profound to both [kid and adult audiences],” says Viscardi. “Those shows inspired so many other artists who grew up watching TV as kids, and then they went on and did their own versions of a lot of those early Nick shows." But ask a millennial — there's nothing like the originals.

Nickelodeon's Web Show "Welcome to the Wayne" Premieres as Full-Length Animated Series

Nickelodeon's popular 2014 animated web series Welcome to the Wayne is checking into the number-one kids network on Monday as a full-fledged series, debuting at 5:30 p.m. ET/PT.


Welcome to the Wayne was Nickelodeon’s first web-only short-form series, with six four to five-minute episodes telling the tale of 10-year-olds Ansi Molina and Olly Timbers, and Olly’s little sister Saraline, as they try to unlock the secrets of the mysterious New York building they live in, the Wayne.

The series was created by Emmy winner Billy Lopez (Peg+Cat, Wonder Pets!), who doubles as the voice of Olly, and is inspired by his childhood in New York’s Greenwich Village. “I especially remember Halloween, when my neighborhood friends and I would go through the buildings we’d lived in. We would just start from the penthouse and tear down the stairs and bang on everyone’s door. It was sort of like Where the Wild Things Are. We basically had control of the whole building for that one night,” he recollected to Variety. “I think a lot of Welcome to the Wayne comes from those memories.”


Welcome to the Wayne creator Billy Lopez | Jayne Wexler/Nickelodeon

Lopez says he was approached by colleagues on Nickelodeon’s digital team who were looking for short-form content to feature on Nick.com. He brought 15-20 short ideas to a blind pitch meeting, “and one of them was the germ of Welcome to the Wayne,” he explains.

Moving from short-form to full-length has been both exciting and challenging, says Lopez. “It’s sort of been a leveling up of every aspect,” he explains. “Not only the storytelling and the ambition for what we hope to make as a show, but also much harder things like production. We have a much larger team working on the animation side of things and on the writing side, so there’s been a lot of learning on the fly.”


But one important thing that Lopez wanted to make sure stayed the same was the feel of the quirky series. “One of the nice things that have stayed intact between the digital and the full-length series is the sort of scrappiness of the animation, the characters and the dialogue.”

Executive producer Michael Pecoriello agrees: “That was one of the things that was important. How do we turn this into a big machine that’s going to produce 20 episodes on budget, on schedule, but still maintain the sort of quirky, hand-drawn, homemade — for lack of a better word — feel of the digital series.”



Another challenge was, of course, the length. “What’s a 22-minute story in Welcome to the Wayne? And how do we service all the things we want to be in there: comedy, mystery, serialization, and also standalones?” says Pecoriello.

Because of its short-form entree on Nick.com, the series has a built-in audience that already has in idea what’s going on, so how do you draw in new viewers without repeating yourself to your die-hard fans?

“We decided that we’re going to keep [the digital series episodes] as a sort of official origin story of these characters and start the pilot episode [of the full-length series] some vague time after that,” explains Lopez. “So we ended up with a soft reintroduction of the premise and the themes.”

“It’s basically designed so that you don’t need to have seen the web series to enjoy the show,” agrees Pecoriello. “Episode one feels like a beginning and definitely introduces the characters and the world, but it does work consistently with the digital, so if you watch them both, you’ll see how this sort of follows the events of the digital series.”

In addition to Lopez, the voice cast includes Alanna Ubach (Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce) as Ansi and Dana Steingold as Saraline.

The series will air at 5:30 p.m. ET/PT through Friday with encore episodes airing on Saturdays at 10:30 a.m. ET/PT. New episodes are slated to air in September 2017.

Visit Nick.com and the Nick App to learn more about Welcome to the Wayne, as well as watch exclusive video clips and play games based on the series. Fans can immerse themselves in the Wayne by following the official Instagram account to discover more about the show, characters, and mysteries within. A sneak peek, full-length episode is available to watch on Nick.com/Wayne and the Nick App, along with platforms including iTunes, Amazon, Xbox, Google Play, Vudu, Playstation, and Nick On Demand.

The format will also be available for viewers on the block’s website, milkshake.tv.

Nickelodeon USA May Premiere "I Am Frankie" In November 2017

Although unconfirmed, actor Tracy Johnson, who'll be portraying 'Engineer Johnson' in Nickelodeon’s upcoming futuristic drama series, I Am Frankie has revealed in the comments of a post on her official Instagram profile page, @iamtracyjohnson, that Nickelodeon USA may be planning to start to premiere I Am Frankie in November 2017!


In I Am Frankie, "Frankie Gaines (played by Alex Hook) looks like a typical teenager, but she harbors a very big secret – she’s actually a cutting edge, experimental android who must hide her true identity to avoid being tracked down by the evil tech company EGG Labs," according to Nickelodeon's show description. "Although Frankie attends a regular school, no one but the members of her family can know her secret. But fitting in and staying under the radar become much more complicated once she begins to make friends….and develop her first crush."

Nickelodeon has ordered 20 x 30 minute episodes which will be distributed to Nickelodeon's global audiences spanning 160 countries and territories via the brand's more than 80 channels and branded blocks.

I Am Frankie will star Jayce Mroz, Carson Rowland, Kyson Facer, Mohana Krishnan, Uriel Baldesco, Kristi Beckett, Sophia Forest, Armani Barrett, Nicole Alyse Nelson, Joy Kigin, Carrie Schroeder, Jean-Carlos Casely, Michael Laurino, Todd Allen Durkin, Tracy Johnson, and Katelyn Adair. The actors join Alex Hook, who will play lead character 'Frankie Gaines' on the show!


I Am Frankie, originally produced as Yo Soy Franky by Nickelodeon Latin America in Colombia, was created by renowned Argentine writer Marcela Citterio, produced in Colombia by Televideo, and is distributed by Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) The Americas through its Division of International Sales Programming (IPS), the division responsible for the international distribution of programs, formats and activities produced by the brands of the company.

The English language version, I Am Frankie, is adapted for global audiences by Catharina Ledeboer, who has written multiple Nickelodeon hits, including most recently Every Witch Way (which completed four seasons) and Talia in the Kitchen.


Production of I Am Frankie is split between Los Angeles, California, and in the new state of the art Viacom International Studios in Miami. The studio, which boasts two 15,000 sq. foot stages and was completed in late 2015, serves as a multiplatform production hub for all of Viacom's brands. Christine Scowley is serving as Casting Director on the series.

Nickelodeon USA's official Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie website currently features information about the networks upcoming television movie, plus fantastic video clips giving fans a first-look at the film, including the "The Legend of Arnold" short released at SDCC 2017!

Hey Arnold! The Jungle Movie takes the kids on the field trip of a lifetime: action packed and full of adventure! They’ll join Arnold on a quest in which he’ll try to achieve his ultimate dream and finally find his missing parents. It all starts when Arnold and his classmates take a trip to San Lorenzo, South America, which, coincidentally, is the last place Arnold’s parents were seen! Their trip takes a turn when pirates kidnap Arnold and his friends! From there it’s one jungle hazard after another, and the gang must put their heads together to get out of danger. As the leader of the journey, Arnold must make sure he and his friends survive safely, all while working towards a reunion he’s dreamt of his whole life!

The two-hour TV movie features a storyline that picks up from where the original series ended in the "The Journal" in 2004 and resolves unanswered questions and plotlines-including Arnold finally getting answers about the whereabouts of his missing parents, Arnold's last name, and how Arnold feels about Helga! The movie is co-written and executive produced by the series’ original creator Craig Bartlett and produced by Nickelodeon in Burbank, Calif.


The voice actors reprising their famed roles include: Francesca Marie Smith (The Prince of Egypt) as Helga; Anndi McAfee (Tom and Jerry: The Movie) as Phoebe; Justin Shenkarow (Recess) as Harold; Olivia Hack (Family Guy) as Rhonda; Nika Futterman (The Boxtrolls) as Olga; Dan Butler (Frasier) as Mr. Simmons; Dan Castellaneta (The Simpsons) as Grandpa; Tress MacNeille (The Simpsons) as Grandma; Antoinette Stella (Melrose Place, writer) as Stella; Carlos Alazraqui (Happy Feet) as Eduardo; Dom Irrera (Back at the Barnyard) as Ernie; Maurice LaMarche (Futurama) as Bob Pataki; Kath Soucie (Rugrats) as Miriam; Danielle Judovits (Toy Story) as Big Patty; Danny Cooksey (The Lorax) as Stoop Kid; Jim Belushi (According to Jim) as Coach Wittenberg; and Craig Bartlett as Miles.

Additionally, Lane Toran (original voice of Arnold) and Jamil Smith (original voice of Gerald) will supplement the returning cast by lending their voices to several other roles.

"We're incredibly fortunate to work with these talented voice actors who brought to life one of the most celebrated cartoons in Nickelodeon's history," said Chris Viscardi, SVP, Content Development, Nickelodeon Franchise Properties. "The voice cast is an essential piece to the Hey Arnold! universe and we're excited for a new generation of fans to hear these characters in a new TV movie."

Original cast members will give new life to Helga, a complicated and cynical girl who puts up a mean front, but is full of extreme emotions; Phoebe, Helga's confidante and loyal best friend; Harold, a former bully with a tough exterior and soft interior; Rhonda, a fashionista who comes from a preppy and prestigious family; and Olga, Helga's beautiful, intelligent and friendly older sister; as well as the other colorful characters.

New voices in the Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie include: Mason Vale Cotton (Mad Men) as Arnold; Benjamin "L'il P-Nut" Flores, Jr. (Game Shakers) as Gerald; Gavin Lewis (Real Boy) as Eugene; Jet Jurgensmeyer (Bubble Guppies) as Stinky; Aiden Lewandowski (Comedy Bang! Bang!) as Sid; Laya Hayes (Santa Hunters) as Nadine; Nicolas Cantu (The Impossible Joy) as Curly; Wally Wingert (Sonic Boom) as Oskar; and Stephen Stanton (Star Wars Rebels) as Pigeon Man.


Rounding out the cast, Alfred Molina (Spider-Man 2) voices resident villain, Lasombra, an infamous river pirate operating from a secret compound in the jungles of San Lorenzo.

Hey Arnold! The Jungle Movie will premiere this Thanksgiving on Nickelodeon USA, and on Nickelodeon channels worldwide soon after.

Sneak Peek Of "The Legend Of Korra: Turf Wars Part 1"; Part 2 Announced! | Nickelodeon @ SDCC 2017

Ever since The Legend Of Korra ended three years ago, with Korra and her girlfriend Asami walking into the spirit world, hand-in-hand, for a vacation together, which was kind of a big deal, fans have been eager to see what Korra and Asami, affectionately known as Korrasami by fans, did next.


Fortunately, Dark Horse has you covered. During Nickelodeon and Dark Horse's "The Comic Book Elements of Avatar and Korra" today at Comic-Con International: San Diego 2017, panelists Michael Dante DiMartino, Janet Varney, and Irene Koh gave fans a sneak peek of The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars Part One, which will be released on Wednesday 26th July 2017.


The story picks up immediately where the animated show left off. Korra and Asami have entered the spirit world. DiMartino said he wanted to show their date because he wanted them “to have a little fun before things get real.”


There are also other Korra publications available from Dark Horse, including the The Legend of Korra coloring book and The Legend of Korra Poster Collection.


Dark Horse also announced the follow-up, The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars Part Two, which is scheduled to be released Wednesday 31st January 2018!

Nickelodeon Greece To Premiere "Kuu Kuu Harajuku" On Monday 24th July 2017

Nickelodeon Greece will start to premiere and show Grammy winner Gwen Stefani's popular music-driven, street fashion-inspired animated series Kuu Kuu Harajuku from Monday 24th July 2017 at 9:00pm (21:00)!:



Kuu Kuu Harajuku follows Love, Angel, Music, Baby and their inspirational leader, G, as they form the super-talented band, HJ5. Thanks to their manager Rudie, angry aliens, NoFun politicians, hungry monster pets, and other obstacles, every gig is interrupted and the girls never get to complete a concert -- but G and her friends never give up.


Kuu Kuu Harajuku; Courtesy Nickelodeon.


The original idea and inspiration for the 2D animated series came from Grammy® Award-winning musician Stefani and her love of pop art and life-long admiration for the street fashion and creative youth culture found in the renowned Harajuku neighborhood of Tokyo, Japan. It was while writing her first solo album that Stefani created the original Harajuku Girl characters as a celebration of the creativity and individualism she saw and loved in the Harajuku District.


The series is co-created and produced by Moody Street Kids (Australia), Vision Animation (Malaysia) and Gwen Stefani and commissioned by Network Ten with investment funding from Film Victoria (Australia) and MyCreative Ventures (Malaysia). DHX Media, the world’s leading independent, pure-play kids’ content company, handles international distribution for Kuu Kuu Harajuku, and licensed the series to Nickelodeon. Kuu Kuu Harajuku season two (26 episodes) recently debuted on Nick Jr. USA, and continues to follow the kuu kuu adventures of HJ5 through their super-cute world of music, fashion and style.

Fans can find out more about Kuu Kuu Harajuku online at nickelodeon.gr.

IDW Games And Nickelodeon Partner For '90s Nickelodeon Tabletop Games | NickSplat | SDCC

Original IDW Games Press Release via idwgames.com:

IDW Games and Nickelodeon Announce “Nickelodeon Splat Attack!”


An all-out food fight featuring your favorite Nick ’90s characters



San Diego, Ca (July 18, 2017) IDW Games announced today a partnership with Nickelodeon to bring Nick ’90s properties to market as tabletop games. Focusing on the hobby and specialty channels, IDW Games plans on releasing a variety of games featuring characters from Rugrats, Invader Zim, SpongeBob SquarePants, The Wild Thornberrys, Hey Arnold!, CatDog, The Angry Beavers, Rocket Power, Aaahh!!! Real Monsters, The Ren & Stimpy Show, and Rocko’s Modern Life.


Here are the classic #Nicktoons that will appear in @IDWgames and @Nickelodeon's Splat Attack! #SDCC2017

The first planned product is titled Nickelodeon Splat Attack! Positioned as an all-out food brawl between the most beloved Nick ’90s characters, Nickelodeon Splat Attack! will have players controlling teams, divided along brands, as they fling food at each other in an effort to hold key positions in the properly-themed food court to become ‘king of the court!’


“There are very few properties that manage to induce nostalgia while also still being incredibly relevant,” says Jerry Bennington, Vice President of New Product Development at IDW Publishing. “Nickelodeon has managed to curate and maintain a menagerie of properties that does just that; allow for the nostalgia of shows like Rugrats and Hey Arnold! while still being endlessly entertaining today. The enthusiasm that fans have for these shows has directly influenced the efforts we’ve put into bringing the best games possible for them to the market.”

Designed by Michael Gray (Fortress America, Dungeon!) and Daryl Andrews (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Showdown, Outpost: Siberia), Nickelodeon Splat Attack! is a board game featuring highly-detailed, plastic miniatures.


Nickelodeon Splat Attack! is currently planned to be released in Spring 2018. Attendees of San Diego Comic Con can be the first to learn more about the game at the IDW Games panel:
