Nickelodeon to Premiere 'Barbapapa' in Germany, Austria and Switzerland on Monday 2nd November 2020

Nickelodeon will premiere Barbapapa, the brand new animated series inspired by the legendary shapeshifting Barbapapa family, in Germany (Deutschland), Austria (Österreich) and Switzerland (Schweiz) on Sunday 1st November 2020!

Nickelodeon Deutschland will air two episodes of Barbapapa back-to-back every Sunday at 09:30 and 09:55 Uhr, respectively.

Meanwhile, Nickelodeon Österreich and Nickelodeon Schweiz will launch Barbapapa by airing two episodes back-to-back, airing at 08:35 and 09:00 Uhr, respectively. Following launch, Nick AT & CH will continue to premiere three brand new episodes every Sunday, airing at 08:35, 09:00 and 09:25 Uhr.

In the German (Deutsch) dub of Barbapapa, voice actor Dennis Schmidt-Foß, best known for being the voice of Ryan Reynolds' character Wade Wilson in the German dub of Deadpool and the voice of Chris Evans' Steve Rogers in Captain America, will voice Barbapapa and Christin Marquitan will voice Barbamama.

Childhood friends since the 70s, the legendary Barbapapa family is once again adding cheer and creativity to the daily lives of children in their brand new animated series. The series follows daily lives of the extraordinary blob-shaped Barbapapa family, who can morph into other forms but retain their original colors. The Barbapapa family consists of parents Barbapapa and Barbamama and their seven children: The intellectual Barbotine; the coquette Barbabelle; the powerful Barbidur; inventor Barbidul; animal lover Barbidou; artist Barbouille; and musician Barbalala; plus their pet dog, Lolita. Together, the Barbapapa's are a large, happy family!

Nickelodeon International acquired the rights to the new Barbapapa series in June 2018 with plans to air in multiple countries across the globe. The 52×11’ episode series, produced by Normaal, will air on Nick Jr. channels in the UK, Benelux, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Greece, Indonesia, Vietnam and the Philippines for both pay- and free-TV. Nick Jr. has also licensed the series for pay-TV in France, Australia, New Zealand, Scandinavia, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Israel, Africa, Latin America, Southeast Asia, India, South Korea and MENA.

Developed by French animation producer and distributor Normaal in partnership with TF1, Barbapapa is written and brought to life by Alice Taylor and Thomas Taylor.

“Nickelodeon has a successful track record of supporting beloved IP and finding new audiences for it around the world,” said Layla Lewis, Senior Vice President (SVP), Global Acquisitions and Content Partnerships for Nickelodeon. “We’re thrilled to partner with Normaal to introduce the long-awaited new Barbapapa series to preschoolers.”

The beloved Barbapapa universe began in 1970, emerging from the combined talent of French-American couple Anette Tyson and Talus Taylor. The original series aired in 40+ countries, including on Nick Jr. Italia (as BarbapapĂ ), gaining worldwide fandom. Its success was followed by the production of a second series in 1977, then a third in 1999 by Japanese producer Kodansha.

Barbapapa is distributed by FESTIVAAL distribution. The series made its world debut on TF1 in France's Tfou programming strand on Sunday 10th November 2019, locally titled Barbapapa en famille (Barbapapa with Family).

From TV Wunschliste:

"Barbapapa": Nick zeigt Neuauflage des Zeichentrickklassikers

In den 1970er Jahren eroberte die Zeichentrickfamilie "Barbapapa" erst die französischen und spĂ€ter immer mehr Kinderzimmer in vielen anderen LĂ€ndern. Schon im Sommer 2018 wurde bekannt, dass die französische Trickschmiede Normaal und der Sender TF1 eine Neuauflage entwickeln, fĂŒr die sich Viacom mit seinen internationalen Nickelodeon-Ablegern die Rechte sichern konnte. Nachdem diese bereits im vergangenen Jahr ihre Weltpremiere gefeiert hat, kommt sie nun auch nach Deutschland.

Ab dem 1. November laufen die neuen Folgen immer sonntags um 9.30 und 9.55 Uhr bei Nick. FĂŒr die deutsche Fassung konnten mit Dennis Schmidt-Foß (Synchronstimme von Ryan Reynolds ("Deadpool") und Chris Evans ("Captain America")) als Barbapapa und Christin Marquitan als Barbamama zwei bekannte Synchronsprecher gewonnen werden.

Im Zentrum der Neuauflage stehen erneut die birnenförmigen, einfarbigen Figuren, die jedoch ihre Form knetmassenĂ€hnlich per Verwandlungsspruch ("Ra-Ru-Rick, Barbatrick") verĂ€ndern können und so zum Beispiel als Schubkarre oder BrĂŒcke dienen, womit sie anderen helfen. Zur Familie gehören neben den Eltern Barbapapa und Barbamama auch ihre insgesamt sieben Kinder, darunter die MĂ€dchen Barbabella, Barbaletta und Barbalala sowie die Jungen Barbarix, Barbawum, Barbabo und Barbakus. Gemeinsam erleben sie viele lustige und spannende Abenteuer.

International wird die Neuauflage von Festivaal vertrieben, von der zunĂ€chst 52 Episoden Ă  elf Minuten bestellt wurden. Zum Leben erweckt werden die Figuren von Alice und Thomas Taylor, die auch fĂŒr die einzelnen Geschichten verantwortlich zeichnen. Erfreulich: Im Gegensatz zu einigen Neufassungen, etwa von "Die Biene Maja", "Heidi" oder "Wickie und die starken MĂ€nner", verzichtete man komplett auf CGI-Elemente und produzierte in klassischem 2D.

Die Originalversion von "Barbapapa" wurde 1970 in Paris von der französischen Architekturstudentin Annette Tison und dem amerikanischen Biologielehrer Talus Taylor entwickelt - erst als KinderbĂŒcher, die in ĂŒber 30 Sprachen ĂŒbersetzt wurden, dann als Trickserie. Diese lief hierzulande erstmals 1974 und dann lange Jahre im ZDF, letztmals war sie im Free-TV 2009 bel RTL zu sehen. Zum 25-jĂ€hrigen JubilĂ€um der Fernsehserie entstand im Jahr 1999 das 50-teilige neue Format  "Um die Welt mit Barbapapa", das jedoch nicht an den Erfolg des Originals heranreichte.

Jules LeBlanc and Jayden Bartels Play 'How Well Do You Know Your Co-Star'

The stars, who play besties on Nickelodeon's Side Hustle, are just as close off-screen.

Jules LeBlanc and Jayden Bartels don't just play best friends on TV, they really are inseparable besties in real life. Don't believe us? Just watch Marie Claire's latest installment of "How Well Do You Know Your Co-Star," where LeBlanc and Bartels, who play Lex and Presley, respectively, in Nickelodeon's newest show Side Hustle, prove how close they are.

"Being on set together is a dream come true," Bartels says about working with her co-star on the comedy about two BFFs who have to find creative ways to earn cash to pay back a neighbor. "It's a lot of work—we love our job, but it's a lot of work—and we need each other. We're just perfect for each other in every sense. The show is so much easier when we're together."

"I don't think I could do it with anyone else," LeBlanc adds.

During the game, the teen stars reveal their first celebrity crushes, relationship deal-breakers, and even where they plan to move together one day (which is, apparently, also news to their parents).

Watch LeBlanc and Bartels absolutely own our trivia challenge, and then catch Side Hustle Saturdays on Nickelodeon.

What Patrick Star's House Should Really Look Like in 'SpongeBob SquarePants'

While it's clear that without the titular sea sponge, Nickelodeon's SpongeBob SquarePants wouldn't have reached the heights that it has over the years, the supporting cast is also deserving of a chunk of the credit. Characters like Sheldon Plankton (Mr. Lawrence), Squidward Tentacles (Rodger Bumpass), Sandy Cheeks (Carolyn Lawrence), among more than a few others, have carved out their own place in popular culture. As recognizable as those names are, perhaps none have reached the status of the shirtless, docile Patrick Star, as voiced by Bill Fagerbakke since the series began in 1999.

Despite his laziness and clear lack of intelligence, Patrick has cultivated a fanbase all his own, aside from his square, yellow best friend. He even has his own Instagram page! This is especially notable when you take into account that, when he's not running around Jellyfish Fields, answering the Krusty Krab's phone during his first day on the job or asking Squidward if mayonnaise is an instrument (it is), he lives an incredibly simple life. He eats, sleeps, and binges television, such as the adventures of Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy, from the comforts of his home beneath a rock, or what was presumed to be one for over two decades. As it turns out, this starfish's living situation is far more complex than the show initially let on.

The SpongeBob SquarePants season 12 episode "Shell Games" revealed that Patrick's rock isn't in fact a rock at all, but a giant turtle shell covered in sludge and grime. The shell's owner, Tony (Bobby Cannavale) awakens after 30 years of sleep, eager to meet up with some lady turtles at Goo Lagoon that he meant to meet way back when. He finally reveals himself to the star that lived underneath him for ages, and — naturally — a conflict ensues over who's the rightful owner of the "house." Obviously, they both have strong claims to it, but judging by their setup there really shouldn't be any clash between them at all.

To better visualize their unique living space, Reddit user Maxdwork put together a neat cross-section of what their shared home should look like and how their dynamic has covertly functioned through the years. The image clearly depicts Tony's area as totally separate from Patrick's, who resides in the dug-out "basement" portion, complete with his sand furniture. How Tony managed not to wake up at least once through years of his shell lifting and slamming back down is anyone's guess, but then again — he was catching z's for longer than the series has been on-air, so he must be a pretty heavy sleeper.

At any rate, this revelation came as a shock to many longtime SpongeBob viewers, including Maxdwork, who didn't really think there was any story to tell about a rock with a weather vane on top of it. If nothing else, it's certainly an interesting spin to put on an otherwise unimportant, but instantly recognizable locale from Bikini Bottom.

Patrick is getting his own SpongeBob spin-off, so maybe we'll get to see more of his home in the future!
