Nickelodeon USA To Premiere "Pig Goat Banana Cricket" In October 2015

Miguel Gonzalez, a Background Artist at Nickelodeon Animation Studio, has announced the very exciting news in a post on his official Tumblr blog that Nickelodeon USA is planning to start to premiere and show Nickelodeon's brand-new original animated series (NickToon) "Pig Goat Banana Cricket" in October 2015!

To celebrate, Miguel has shared some of the fantastic background artwork he has created for "Pig Goat Banana Cricket" on his Tumbler blog, including the background for a scene in the shows opening titles!

"Pig Goat Banana Cricket" features a series of absurd interwoven stories about four friends and roommates, naive Pig (the fool), bohemian Goat (the artist), selfish Banana (the wise-guy) and mad scientist Cricket (the brain). Created by Dave Cooper and Johnny Ryan, established comic artists who worked on several issues of Nickelodeon Magazine, and executive produced by David Sacks ("The Simpsons", "Regular Show") who co-writes with J. Ryan. Dave Cooper also art directs the series and the pilot was directed by independent animator Nick Cross.

Additionally, to celebrate his brand-new original Nickelodeon animated series (Nicktoon) "The Loud House", Chris Savino has posted some artwork and behind-the-scenes photos from the production of Nick's all-new Nicktoon on his official Instagram profile page! Chris has also announced that the last episode of the first season of "The Loud House" will be titled "Loud Loud Loud House"!

Inspired by first-time creator Chris Savino's ("Rocko's Modern Life", "The Powerpuff Girls") chaotic life growing up in a huge household, the series will follow 11-year-old Lincoln as he gives an inside look at what it takes to survive in the bedlam of a large family, especially as the only boy with 10 sisters. The series is based off a short of the same name from Nickelodeon's 2013 Animated Shorts Program, and is scheduled to debut on Nick USA in January 2016. You can watch a online streaming video clip featuring Chris Savino's original Nickelodeon 2013 Animated Shorts Program short here on NickALive!.
