Nicktoons Africa to Debut 'MooseBox' on Monday 24th September 2018

Nicktoons Africa, Nickelodeon Africa's top-performing animation channel, will start to premiere and show Nickelodeon International's brand-new animated short-form series MooseBox on Monday 24th September 2018 at 16:25 CAT! The series (20 x 90 seconds) follows Moose and CatBox, two best friends who need each other to play, explore and survive a video game world called The Cube, and will air between Nickelodeon's hit animated comedy series SpongeBob SquarePants and Fairly OddParents.

If you love gorgeous pixel art, videogame-inspired settings and African made cartoons, Nickelodeon International's brand-new short-form series MooseBox is the show for you!

Created by South African animation director Mike Scott, MooseBox is one of the first short-form series to come out of Nickelodeon's world renowned Global Animated Shorts Program. Nickelodeon International greenlit the series for development in October 2017.

The original pilot below – which was produced by the well-known Cape Town studio Triggerfish Animation – was made for Nickelodeon International Animated Shorts Program 2013-14, and has been available to watch online for more than three years as part of Nickelodeon's Global Animated Shorts Program showcase. While Triggerfish handled the pilot, Johannesburg studio Mind’s Eye Creative is behind the series.

Following the series' African launch, MooseBox is expected to roll out on the Nickelodeon Play (Nick Play) app in several international markets soon after.

If you’d like to know more about MooseBox, NickALive! suggests checking out Scott’s personal blog which also talks about voice acting talent from New York and the fact that he first came up with the idea way back in 2013.

As a final extra bit of South African pride, Nickelodeon Africa has also told revealed that there’s more local content coming from them soon, including the brand-new CG-animated preschool series Munki and Trunk from Cape Town based animation studio Sunrise Productions, which premiered on Nicktoons Africa on Monday 2nd April 2018!
