Nick Orders up ‘Fanboy’
Random! Cartoons on Nicktoons were always eyed as a breeding ground for new series and the first such spin-off has been announced. Fanboy and Chum Chum will be granted a 26-episode order.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the CG-animated series is about “a fearless, comic book-loving 10-year-old named Fanboy (David Hornsby) and his best friend and trusty sidekick, Chum Chum (Nika Futterman), whose wide-eyed acceptance of the bizarre is the perfect complement to his friend’s hyper imagination.” Additional voice actors for the series will include Jamie Kennedy, Josh Duhamel and Estelle Harris.
They have also ordered 20 episodes of the math-themed Team Umizoomi, a series that combines 2-D and 3-D animation with live action. This series is aimed for Nick Jr.
