Ren and Stimpy Reboot announcement

Find Out Why You Won't See Ren and Stimpy in the Nicktoons Movie

This well-known cartoon is famous from its crude humor in the 90s, but it is also infamous due to the creator’s actions. Ren and Stimpy is one of the staples of the classic Nickelodeon 90’s cartoons. It has been announced by Rolling Stones that this cartoon has been greenlit for a revival by Comedy Central. ViacomCBS, owner of Nickelodeon and Comedy Central, stated that they will provide a new creative team for the Nickelodeon Animation Studios that will be different from the classic. It is also been announced that this show will not profit the creator John Kricfalusi. Reason why is because John was accused for sexual conduct.

excerpt:

“We are excited to reinvent this iconic franchise with a new creative team and our partners at the Nickelodeon Animation Studio,” ViacomCBS Entertainment and Youth Group president Chris McCarthy said. “Ren and Stimpy joins our rapidly expanding roster of adult animation including South ParkBeavis and Butt-Head and Clone High as we continue to reimagine our treasure chest of beloved IP for new generations.”

This Ren and Stimpy reboot will be joining other IPs such as the reboot Beavis and Butt-Head and Daria spinoff Jodie. Ren and Stimpy got its popularity in Nick along with other classic shows such as Rugrats, Hey Arnold and Doug. In 2003, John Kricfalusi created a series of short adult themed episodes of Ren and Stimpy called Ren and Stimpy “Adult Party Cartoon” at the Spike TV channel. Unfortunately, the short show only aired 3 out of the 6 episodes and it was viewed very poorly by fans. In 2018, in investigation, John was accused by sexual harassment and assault on two underaged girls. John will not be receiving any credit or money from the reboot of Ren and Stimpy.

Invader Zim Netflix movie was originally going to be planned on TV?

Image result for invader zim enter the florpus

If you didn’t know, Netflix has released two classic Nickelodeon movies and specials of the cartoons Invader Zim and Rocko’s Modern Life. We have the movie Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus and the special Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling. These two classics are back and are only available in Netflix. However, from sources I read, they were originally going to be on TV.

In a interview from ComicBook.com, Invader Zim creator Jhonen Vasquez tells them why did they choose Netflix instead of broadcasting the movie on TV. Here is what what he had to say:

“We had already finished production. Netflix really had no hand in the creation of the thing. Nickelodeon was the intended destination for it, but then there was a lot of changeover that happened in the last couple of months of production at Nickelodeon, just suddenly everyone that was supportive was no longer present. And I think we just rolled to the finish line in this junky machine that I think really only crossed the finish line out of sheer neglect by the end of it.”

Overall from this statement, Vasquez briefly stated that they were done making the movie and wanted to release it to the public. Unfortunately, the team he knew from Nickelodeon wasn’t there and the new team didn’t give them permission to put to on TV. Instead, thanks to Netflix platform, they were able to easily stream it for others. How do you feel about this news? Get ready for more movies plan such as Rise for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and The Loud House.

Nick movies Invader Zim and Rocko’s Modern Life is heading to Netflix

Does anyone remember watching Rocko’s Modern Life during the 90’s? Remember the insane randomness in the cartoon Invader Zim? I got some interesting news to share. Originally in 2017 Comic Con, Nickelodean revealed two teaser trailers for the return of Rocko’s Modern Life and Invader Zim. Now we get an update from Bob Bakish, the President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Viacom in regards to these cartoons. They are actually cartoon movies and they will be premiering on Netflix. Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling and Invader Zim: Enter The Florpus will be on Netflix in summer 2019. It’s updated that Rocko’s Modern Life will be in late Summer.

Created by Jhonen Vasquez, Invader Zim premiered on March 30, 2001, running for 27 episodes over two seasons on Nickelodeon, winning an Emmy Award and an Annie Award for individual achievement in animation (which went to storyboard artists Kyle Menke and Steve Ressel, respectively). The series chronicles an alien named Zim who arrived on Earth from his home planet of Irk with imperialistic intentions of conquering the planet (in order to gain favor with his Irken home race). Wildly ineffective but hilariously earnest, Zim and his robot companion GIR attempted to blend in and study the human race while simultaneously trying to enslave it. Despite Zim and GIR’s subpar disguises, the only humans who realize they are extraterrestrials are school-aged paranormal investigator Dib.

In INVADER ZIM: Enter The Florpus, ZIM discovers his almighty leaders have no intention of coming to Earth and he loses confidence in his own amazingness for the first time in his amazing life, which is the big break his human nemesis Dib has been waiting for. At some point, GIR rides a tiny donkey, and that’s all anyone should really care about.

Created by Joe Murray and originally airing from 1993-1996, the animated series Rocko’s Modern Life follows the adventures of an Australian wallaby named Rocko and his two companions, Heffer and Filburt, through their adventures in their home of O-Town. Just like the original ‘90s series, “Static Cling” is hand-drawn special that stars Rocko, a wallaby who emigrated from Australia to the United States and enjoys the simple things in life; Heffer, Rocko’s best friend; Filburt, Rocko’s other best friend; and Ed Bighead and Bev Bighead, Rocko’s neighbors; as well as the other colorful characters.

Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling brings the beloved characters back to Earth after being lost in outer space since 1996. Rocko has trouble accepting this 21st century modern life, while Heffer and Filburt embrace every aspect of new technology, social media and the endless diversity of food trucks. Rocko wholeheartedly believes that his nostalgia for the past can save him from the tortures of the modern world.

Also, it’s been announced a while back that Netlfix will also be in charge of other Nick projects such as the live action TV series Avatar: The Last Airbender, an animated series called Pinky Malinky, two animated movies of Rise of the Teenage Mutant Turtles and The Loud House.

What do you think about these movies being in Netflix?

Sad News: SpongeBob Creator Stephen Hillenburg died

If you thought losing Stan Lee was awful, I got some unfortunate news I recently heard from Twitter. According to the official Nickelodeon Twitter, it’s been announced that Stephen Hillenburg has died. If you don’t know who is Stephen Hillenburg, he is the creator of the late 90s cartoon series SpongeBob SquarePants.

According to Variety, the cause of death was ASL. At the ALSA.org site, ASL, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. It was announced a while back that Stephen was diagnosed by ASL in March of 2017. Now that he is gone, it’s unknown what’s going to happen with the SpongeBob cartoons and how is this going to affect Nick. SpongeBob SquarePants first premiered in May 1st, 1999. In 1993 to 1996, he wrote and directed the cartoon series Rocko’s Modern Life. SpongeBob has been getting a lot popularity from old and new fans. It’s around now season 11 and even has two movies.

SpongeBob SquarePants is a cartoon that I will always enjoy. I remember watching every episode and quotes. It’s part of my life and I am saddened that Stephen Hillenburg is gone. I am thankful for him for giving us something to laugh about. God Bless his friends and family.

Friday Funny 51: 90s!

TGIF! Thank God it’s Friday! Good morning everyone! Today is another TGIF episode and I can’t wait to start. Recently this week I went back to school again for the spring. Hopefully if everything goes well, I shall be done. That also means I might be busier than usual since I am taking a lot of classes. Still, I will do my best to continue blogging :).

Tomorrow at Toonami, the last episode of the anime Parasyte will be shown and replacing that will be Hunter x Hunter. Well since I did not have anything pictures for this occasion I decided to mix it up for this TGIF post. If any 90s kid recognize the title “All That!”, you were born in the 90s like me. I decided to share pictures and memes from old cartoons. Those were the best times. Back then before cell phones and apps, we had toys and vhs. Some of these may not be 90s but their are some pictures that may trigger some nostalgia. Remember you would watch Toonami after school and watch action packed anime like DBZ, YuYu Hakusho, Sailor Moon and Rurouni Kenshin? Pepperidge Farm remembers.  Sit back and relax and enjoy the ride!

WARNING: Thus may contain nostalgia!
