NEW YORK, NY – JULY 29, 2021—More than 230 million kids around the world under the age of 15 lack access to the glasses they need. To make a positive impact on kids’ eye health globally, Nickelodeon International’s “Together for Good” and OneSight, a leading global vision nonprofit dedicated to reaching the 1.1 billion people globally who lack access to eye care, today announced their partnership on a new, multi-territory and multi-platform pro-social campaign, “Framing the Future.”

Launching August 1st and culminating on World Sight Day, October 14th, the “Framing The Future” campaign will educate kids and families on the importance of eye health, clear vision and access to vision care on a global scale, through multi-property programming, original short form and digital content.


Broadcasting to more than 67 million households in 69 territories across the UK, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Southeast Asia, Latin America and Brazil, the campaign encourages empathy, action and advocacy by highlighting solutions in a mission to help kids who can’t see clearly, get the glasses they need to learn more and live better. The campaign will be supported by a digital hub (eyes.nickelodeon.tv), also accessible in the U.S. among other regions, where kids can pledge to take a few small actions such as protecting their eyes from the sun and taking breaks from their devices. These actions will result in their commitment to being Junior Glasses Champions, advocating for healthy eyes and clear vision for all. The digital hub will also contain quizzes, polls, activity sheets, eye charts, videos and facts and resources on eye health.


The network will also air a 3-hour “Eye Spy Toons” programming marathon in August, showcasing episodes featuring Nickelodeon’s spectacled characters from SpongeBob SquarePants, The Loud House, and ALVINNN!!! And The Chipmunks. Viewers will be challenged to find and count the number of characters wearing glasses, while factoids about eye health pop up during the marathon.

“Research indicates that 30% of students around the world are unable to live up to their learning potential because they cannot see clearly in the classroom,” says Jules Borkent, Executive Vice President, Kids & Family, ViacomCBS Networks International. “As millions of kids worldwide prepare to go back to school, Together for Good’s partnership with OneSight aims to encourage families to think about their own vision care needs by harnessing the power of storytelling and our global brand to educate and advocate for a more inclusive world.”

“Kids are able to learn up to twice as much when they have the glasses they need, but they don’t always realize they have a vision problem,” said K-T Overbey, President & Executive Director, OneSight. “Through our Together for Good partnership with Nickelodeon International, we seek to educate kids on the importance of routine eye exams, caring for their eyes, and encouraging others who may need glasses. We welcome families to join OneSight in our mission to bring vision care to the 1.1 billion people globally who lack access.”


Viewers will be encouraged to interact with the Together For Good “Framing The Future” campaign on social media using #FramingTheFuture to join others in this important vision movement.

Established in 2015, Together For Good is Nickelodeon International’s platform to inspire and empower its kid audiences to get involved in their communities and make positive changes in the world around them. Nickelodeon believes that kids have a voice, and can improve their communities, create an inclusive world, and make a difference in their future. Previous Together For Good campaigns have been in partnership with various non-profit organizations such as Plan International, Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef, African Wildlife Foundation, and Kids’ Rights, tackling such issues as gender equity and ocean and wildlife conservation.

Marine Scientists Spot a 'Real-Life' SpongeBob SquarePants and Patrick Star in the Atlantic Ocean

SpongeBob SquarePants may wear classy garb, but real-life sea sponges obviously don't wear pants, square or otherwise. Sea stars like SpongeBob's partner-in-crime, Patrick Star, don't wear swim trunks, either.

Nevertheless, marine scientist Christopher Mah quickly spotted the resemblance between the iconic Nickelodeon cartoon characters and a real-life yellow sponge and pink sea star found deep under the Atlantic waves. A remotely operated deep-sea vehicle spotted the colorful duo on Tuesday, July 27 on the side of an underwater mountain called Retriever seamount, which is located 200 miles east of New York City.

"I normally avoid these refs... but WOW. REAL LIFE SpongeBob and Patrick!" Mah, a researcher affiliated with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, tweeted

As part of its newest deep-sea expedition, NOAA's Okeanos Explorer ship is sending remotely-operated vehicles like the one that found the sponge and star more than a mile below the Atlantic's surface. The ROVs, as they're known, explore submarine habitats, livestream their journeys, and capture images of denizens in the deep. 

"I thought it would be funny to make the comparison, which for once was actually kind of comparable to the iconic images/colors of the cartoon characters," Mah told Insider via email. "As a biologist who specializes in sea stars, most depictions of Patrick and Spongebob are incorrect."

Comparing SpongeBob and Patrick to their real-life counterparts


There are more than 8,500 species of sponges, and the creatures have been living in the ocean for the last 600 million years. Their shapes and textures vary depending on whether they live on soft sand or hard, rocky surfaces.

Very few of them resemble SpongeBob's boxy shape.

But the SpongeBob-like sponge in the image, Mah said, belongs to the genus Hertwigia. He was surprised by its bright yellow color, which is unusual for the deep sea. That far down, most things are orange or white to help them camouflage in the dimly lit environment.

SpongeBob was originally designed with the features of a real marine sponge. But it turned out too “realistic” and it made him look like a kind of “blob”. That is why the decision was made to give him the shape of a kitchen sponge.

The sea star nearby, known as Chondraster, has five arms covered with tiny suckers. Those allow it to creep across the ocean floor and attach itself to rocks and other organisms. Chondraster stars can be dark pink, light pink, or white.

This star's color "was a bright pink that strongly evoked Patrick," Mah said.

Sea stars are carnivores. Once one clings to a clam, oyster, or snail, the animal extends its stomach out through its mouth then uses enzymes to break down and digest its prey.

Sea sponges, in fact, are a preferred menu item for Chondraster stars", Mah said. So the pink Patrick-like creature scooting close to the sponge likely had food, not friendship, in mind.

These creatures' deep-sea habitat is freezing; no sunlight penetrates. 

They live "in the true abyss of the ocean," Mah said, "well below the depth we think of where cartoon SpongeBob and Patrick live."

SpongeBob's hometown of Bikini Bottom is thought to be below Bikini Atoll in the Pacific Ocean.

Mah, an expert in sea stars who works at the Smithsonian Museum, hopes to use footage from the Okeanos ROVs to identify new star species.

Since 2010, the program has helped researchers explore the depths below the Hawaiian Islands, the US Pacific Island territories, the Gulf of Mexico, and "all up and down the East Coast," Mah said. NOAA's ROVs can traverse deep-sea canyons, sea mounts, and other habitats.

"We have investigated up to 4,600-meter depths [15,000 feet, or almost 3 miles] and seen a wide range of never-before-seen ocean life, including huge deep-sea corals, many deep-sea fish, starfishes, sponges of which many are undescribed species and thus new to science," Mah said.

He added: "Some of it is very alien and in some cases bizarre."

Updates:

- Influencers Bryan and Eddy Skabeche will voice Ruben and Butch in the Latin American Spanish dub of PAW Patrol: The Movie!



Skabeche, un equipo incluyente


Los youtubers quieren transmitir un mensaje de respeto y tolerancia para las nuevas generaciones a través de su doblaje en Paw Patrol: la película, en la que son villanos

Tolerancia, respeto y protección hacia los animales son algunas de las lecciones que pretenden dejar en Paw Patrol: la película, comentan los youtubers mexicanos SKabeche (Bryan y Eddy) quienes realizaron el doblaje de dos personajes en su versión para Latinoamérica. 

“Siento que una de las enseñanzas que deja es que hay que ser muy tolerantes, el hecho de respetar las ideas del otro es un factor principal para que esta sociedad siga evolucionando, se siga proyectando”, comenta Bryan a EL UNIVERSAL.

Al ser una película animada de perritos, comentan que el filme contiene una importante valía sobre el cuidado y protección de los animales, pues sus personajes transmiten valores sobre el respeto a la naturaleza y cuidado del medio ambiente.

“En el caso del rescate de los perritos que estaban en el socavón de Puebla, yo hasta me imaginé que fue la patrulla de Paw quienes los rescató (risas), pero aparte del cuidado de los animales, que es el punto central de la película, también tiene otras enseñanzas, como el tema de no tirar la basura en lugares públicos, está llena de bonitas moralejas; es una película necesaria que tienen que ver las nuevas generaciones”, explica Bryan. 

Quieren ser ejemplo
Los hermanos, quienes hicieron las voces de Rubén y Butch, dos guardias de seguridad de Adventure City, que son los personajes antagónicos de los famosos perritos de la patrulla canina, indican que estos mismos valores de unión y empatía son los que ellos quieren transmitir a través de su canal.

“Durante estos siete años en YouTube hemos mantenido un lenguaje para toda la familia, incluyente, enseñando valores. Esta película para nosotros significa conectar con los pequeños, compartir la felicidad de divertirse sin dañar a otros, ser incluyentes, porque siempre seremos niños, ese es nuestro lema de vida”, detalla el dúo.

 Así como el equipo de canes que puede solucionar grandes conflictos gracias a su unión, los youtubers dicen, es algo que desearían que todos valoraran.

“Esta película tiene dos matices, te enseña a que no sólo una persona tiene la razón, sino que depende de la perspectiva y del juicio de cómo puedes respetar la opinión de los demás”, enfatiza Eddy.

El filme animado dirigido por Cal Brunker y producido por Spin Master Entertainment en asociación con Paramount Pictures y Nickelodeon Movies, tiene las voces en inglés de Yara Shahidi, Kim Kardashian West, Jimmy Kimmel, entre otros, y se estrenará en cines de Estados Unidos y Canadá el próximo 20 de agosto; se prevé que en salas mexicanas también llegue en esa fecha.

“Es increíble participar en un proyecto tan grande, a nosotros nos hace mucha ilusión porque es nuestra primera participación en el doblaje, entonces no fue fácil, pero creemos que el resultado quedó increíble así que la van a amar”, expresan emocionados los influencers. 

Paw Patrol es una serie animada que debutó en 2013 y cuenta actualmente con seis temporadas en televisión.
