Fairbanks Boy Receives One Shell Of A Wish

KTVF Channel 11, a NBC affiliate television station serving Fairbanks, Alaska, is reporting the Booyakasha TMNT news that a young Fairbanks, AK boy recently got a Turtle-tastic surprise from the volunteers at the Make a Wish Foundation!

5–year–old Jace Herbert and his Mom made a wish to meet Michelangelo, Leonardo, Raphael and Donatello, the heroes in a half shell from Nickelodeon's hit CG-animated series "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles", and on Tuesday 29th April 2014, a local Fred Meyer's west store was transformed into a special scavenger hunting ground, which, ending with a Ninja Turtle dance, helped the Make a Wish Foundation send–off Jace to Orlando, Florida to stay at the Nickelodeon Suites Resort and meet the famous reptiles in person Turtle!

Jace was diagnosed with Leukemia in December 2012; something his Mom says has been hard on both him and their family. His mom Ami said, "it's been hard but with my supportive family and friends I'm doing it for that little guy."

Jace didn't know what his full surprise is, but found out at 6pm on Tuesday 29th April 2014.

This is a true celebration for the family as Ami says she received notice in February of this year that Jace has officially gone into remission.

SpongeBob runners raise over £30,000

A WORLE mum and her friends have raised more than £30,000 after dressing in SpongeBob Squarepants costumes and 
running the London Marathon in memory of her daughter.

Sue Collard completed the run along with Kev Knight, Sarah Toms, Carole Craddock, Dave 
Elliott, Stuart Jervis and Gary Moore.

Sue’s daughter Mary, pictured right, who was a member of Weston’s Swimming Club and the town’s Act One drama group, lost her brave battle with bone cancer in 2012 at the age of 11.

Her favourite cartoon was the Nickelodeon show, and so Sue decided this would be the perfect costume for the big run and a great way to raise money for the Bone Cancer Research Trust.

Since the friends were allocated their individual places they worked hard on organising various charity events such as golf days, gigs, cake sales and quiz evenings.

The team have raised more than £30,000, with more still being collected, and Sue 
said: “I would like to thank everyone who has supported us in continuing to remember Mary and to raise awareness of bone cancer and to find a cure.”

BURBANK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A second season is in the oven for Nickelodeon's Breadwinners, a popular animated series that ranks #1 in its Saturday 11:00 a.m. time slot with Kids 2-11/6-11 and Boys 2-11/6-11.

The series will make its season one debut on the network's international channels this fall.

"The popularity and success of Breadwinners is a testament to our commitment to creator-driven animation," Hicks said. "We're thrilled to bring our audience another season of this great show as part of our continued pledge to building our pipeline of original animation."

The 20-episode order continues with more of SwaySway and Buhdeuce's wild and quazy adventures aided by their trusted allies: the Bread Maker, Ketta, T-Midi and Jelly. As SwaySway and Buhdeuce delve deeper into the expansive world of Pondgea, they dodge more menacing monsters, discover new magical breads, and meet more riduckulous customers along the way. No matter what, this duck duo will keep moving to the beat and getting bread up in yo beak!

Nickelodeon closed April as the top basic cable net in total day with Kids 2-11 (2.7/872K, up +4% versus a year ago) and total viewers (1.6M), securing its fourth straight monthly win driven by its hit animation and preschool roster.

This team of emerging and innovative artists delivers a funny and original series for this new generation of kids. With vast inspirations from classic buddy-comedy animation, and various current gaming, internet and music cultures, this innovative show introduces the next duck duo who always keep their beaks up and their heads boppin'.
