Nickelodeon Passes on 'Planet Panic'

Nickelodeon has passed on greenlighting Planet Panic to series. Filmmaker Gene Goldstein, who previously served as a background artist on nearly 100 episodes of The Loud House as well as on the upcoming The Loud House Movie, announced the unfortunate news on his Twitter page.

Although Nickelodeon has passed on the property, this isn't the end of the story. One positive bit of news from the decision is that the rights to Planet Panic now revert back to Goldstein, leaving him free to shop the property around other networks and studios, so there's a good chance we'll see a Planet Panic series elsewhere.

Planet Panic is a animated short created and developed by Goldstein, which was originally selected as a finalist in 2015 edition of Nickelodeon's world renowned Animated Shorts Program. The short is based on Goldstein's animated comic of the name, which can be viewed here:

On Planet Panic, giant monsters roaming the city are as normal as morning traffic. Viewers meet Pibbles, a non-binary kid hero in training, and Zeus: Pibbles' partner, mentor, and a man-machine hybrid.
