The Ride | Are You Afraid of the Dark? | Teaser Trailer #7 | Nickelodeon

Nickelodeon today unveiled their latest teaser trailer for their upcoming Are You Afraid of the Dark? revival! Click play below, and please keep hands and feet inside the ride at all times.


Are You Afraid of the Dark? is a Canadian Twilight Zone-esqie anthology series created by D.J. MacHale and Ned Kandel. It revolves around a group of teenagers who called themselves the Midnight Society that meet weekly at a secret location in the woods, where one member tells a scary story to the rest of the group, some of which are based on public domain fairy tales, short stories or urban legends. Subjects range from abandoned houses and vampires to scary clowns, witches and aliens.

The series debuted in 1990 on the Canadian children's channel YTV and was picked up by Nickelodeon USA in 1991, though it didn’t debut until SNICK’s launch on Saturday, Aug. 15, 1992. The show ran until April 1996, and a revival series with new writers, directors, writers and cast members was produced by Nickelodeon from 1999 to 2000. In all, the series ran for 91 episodes over seven seasons. Tia and Tamera Mowry (Sister, Sister), Will Friedle (Boy Meets World), Neve Campbell, Hayden Christensen, Jay Baruchel, Tatyana Ali, Melissa Joan Hart (Clarissa Explains It All, Sabrina the Teenage Witch), Jewel Staite (Space Cases), Emily VanCamp, and two-time Academy Award nominee Ryan Gosling are just a few of the household names who have lent their acting skills to the anthology.

Each episode is introduced with the storyteller saying “Submitted for the approval of the Midnight Society,” who then would announce the title of that segment. MacHale said the line was a tribute to the series The Twilight Zone, in which creator Rod Serling would introduce the episode by saying, “submitted for your approval.”

In Nickelodeon's Are You Afraid of the Dark? revival miniseries, through three hour-long episodes, the new Midnight Society will tell a terrifying tale about the Carnival of Doom, only to have the events of the story come to life. The revival will premiere this October on Nick.

The new members of the Midnight Society are: Gavin, played by Sam Ashe Arnold (Best.Worst.Weekend.Ever.); Akiko, played by Miya Cech (Rim of the World, Always Be My Maybe); Louise, played by Tamara Smart (Artemis Fowl, The Worst Witch); Graham, played by Jeremy Taylor (It, Goosebumps 2:Haunted Halloween); and Rachel, played by Lyliana Wray (Top Gun: Maverick, Black-ish). The Carnival of Doom’s ringmaster, Mr. Tophat, is played by Rafael Casal (Blindspotting).

The Are You Afraid of the Dark? limited series is produced by ACE Entertainment (To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, The Perfect Date) with ACE founder Matt Kaplan and Spencer Berman serving as executive producers. The series is written by BenDavid Grabinski (Skiptrace) and directed by Dean Israelite (Power Rangers movie, Project Almanac), both of whom will also executive produce.

Paramount Players is also currently working on a feature film adaptation of Are You Afraid of the Dark?.

Scouting For Girls join SLIMEFEST UK Line-Up | Update: Tickets Now SOLD OUT!

Update (30/8) - Tickets to SLIMEFEST UK 2019 have now SOLD OUT! The only way in is to win! Keep your eye out on Nick.co.uk and on Nickelodeon UK's Instagram, Facebook and Twitter for competitions where you could win tix to SLIMEFEST!

Scouting For Girls join SLIMEFEST UK Line-Up

The band will perform as headliners on Monday 21st October at The Arena, Blackpool Pleasure Beach alongside hosts Jordan Banjo and Perri Kiely and performers Diversity, Max and Harvey, Jess Folley, New Hope Club, Kira Kosarin and RoadTrip.


London, 14th August 2019 – Scouting For Girls have joined SLIMEFEST’s line up as headliners on Monday 21st October 2019 at The Arena, Blackpool Pleasure Beach, across both 1pm and 6pm shows.

Families can visit nick.co.uk/slimefest for more information on the music and slime-filled events.

Scouting For Girls said “Slimefest 2019 – we’re so excited to perform some fan favourites as well as our new music! See you in Blackpool!”

More than ten years have passed since Scouting For Girls released their 2007 self-titled debut, a record that went on to become triple platinum and birthed the generation-bridging anthems of ‘She’s So Lovely’, ‘Elvis Ain’t Dead’ and ‘Heartbeat’. 2017’s accompanying ‘Ten Add Ten’ record bundled that now-classic debut with ten new songs, proving that the band’s joy, energy and ability to write an instantly catchy chorus hadn’t gone anywhere.

In the decade since ‘Scouting For Girls’, the band have released ‘Everybody Wants To Be On TV’ (2010), ‘The Light Between Us’ (2012), and ‘Still Thinking About You’ (2015) plus the mega hit single ‘This Ain’t A Love Song’. They’ve picked up nominations for four Brits, an Ivor Novello and played everywhere from a sold out Wembley Arena to countless festival stages. Last year they released ‘England I Still Believe’ as a cheeky, unofficial World Cup anthem, which is a very Scouting For Girls thing to do.

Friends since they were five, Pete Ellard, Greg Churchouse and Roy have never changed to chase success. Success came to them. They’ve never followed what others are doing, preferring to focus on themselves and make the music they want to make.

SLIMEFEST 2019 is hosted by Jordan Banjo and Perri Kiely and Scouting for Girls join resident acts Diversity, Jess Folley, Max and Harvey, New Hope Club, Kira Kosarin and Road Trip.

Filled with SLIME, MUSIC and MAYHEM join Nickelodeon for the biggest and slimiest event of the year here in Blackpool! Packed full of top music acts, special guests, your favourite Nickelodeon stars and most importantly, SLIME!

Plus, you don’t have to wait until the show starts for the fun to begin; every SLIMEFEST ticket also includes a Pleasure Beach Pass, or you can choose to purchase a Pleasure Beach Wristband which gives you unlimited riding all day. You can also choose to extend your visit the fun with a 7-day Blackpool Resort Pass.

Oh and shhh, Nick has a super slimy, big green secret to tell you. For children aged between 8-15 years old, a SLIME PIT ticket will get you up-close to your favourite stars, plus it’s the ONLY way to experience the SLIME! Accompanying parents/guardians & younger children can experience the fun with a seated ticket or a standing adult ticket (for adults and kids 15yrs +)

Over 160,000 people have attended related SLIMEFEST events across the globe in the US, Australia, Italy, UK, Germany and Spain.

Toms Partners with Hasbro to License Shoes featuring Power Rangers, My Little Pony, Transformers and More

Footwear brand Toms has announced a licensing deal with Hasbro, Inc.!


Through a three-year strategic agreement, the shoe company will create a series of products — including shoes, apparel and eyewear — inspired by the toy maker’s portfolio of hit children’s and entertainment brands, including Power Rangers, Transformers, Candy Land, Monopoly, Tonka, My Little Pony and more.

“Toms is excited to announce our partnership with Hasbro, a classic brand that has touched many generations,” said Liza Doppelt, vice president, global brand marketing at Toms. “This long-term collaboration will launch in Fall 2020 and bring together the iconic Toms styles that give back with the nostalgia of childhood Hasbro favourites.

“The collection of fun footwear for men, women and children will be available at select global retailers.”

“We’re thrilled to work with Toms to provide fans of all ages a new way to engage with the Hasbro brands they love,” added Casey Collins, Hasbro’s GM and senior vice president, entertainment and licensing. “We know that our fans will appreciate the quality and care that Toms takes in the development of each of their designs, and we can’t wait to see people everywhere wearing the Hasbro x Toms collaboration!”

The first wave of Hasbro x Toms products will be available for fall 2020, with additional waves releasing over the next three years. The collaboration will include footwear in women’s, men’s and kids’ sizing. Styles will sell on Toms.com and through select retail channels.

Toms is well known for its charitable and philanthropic efforts, positively impacting more than 94 million lives through the giving of shoes, water and impact grants since the company's inception. The firm is excited to bring Hasbro into the one-for-one fold and continue its mission statement. With every purchase of the Hasbro x Toms collection, Toms will give a new pair of shoes to a child in need.

Earlier this year, the shoemaker expanded its existing relationship with Sesame Street to launch the new Sesame Street x TOMS collection (also part of the “One for One” program).

Last week, Hasbro entered an agreement to acquire Entertainment One for US$4 billion. Hasbro will take ownership of the company’s entire film and TV production slate, including hit kids IPs Peppa Pig and PJ Masks. It’s not yet clear if these properties will be part of the TOMS collaboration moving forward.

Toms founder Blake Mycoskie recently talked to Footwear News about his career and advocating for gun control. Click here to watch the interview!

The Internet Thinks the New Host of 'Blue's Clues', Joshua Dela Cruz, Is Really Hot

The Internet Thinks the New Host of Blue's Clues, Joshua Dela Cruz, Is Really Sexy

"It is a little weird only because you don't think in your life you'll ever get this kind of exposure," Joshua Dela Cruz said of the attention.

It doesn’t take a Thinking Chair to see that Joshua Dela Cruz has got it goin’ on.

The new host of the upcoming Blue’s Clues reboot titled Blue’s Clues & You!, premiering this fall, has a sexy side that social-media users have discovered and shared with the world.

Images and videos of the photogenic actor and singer have flooded Twitter over recent days, showing him both in candid and modeling shots — including a certain shirtless black-and-white snap that’s making the rounds, where the actor flexes and looks over his shoulder while wearing glasses.

“Joshua dela cruz if you see this and want to hang out with me on wednesday when i am free pls respond and come over when i am free on wednesday so we can hang out on wednesday when i am free,” one Twitter user wrote.

“I feel like there was a time where we all dreamed to end up with a guy like Joshua Dela Cruz,” tweeted another, ending with a string of random capital letters.

The replies ranged from wholehearted approval (some simple and sweet, some NSFW) to warnings, where Twitter users chimed in to joke to their fellow posters not to “end his career before it starts” with their outward affection.

“Me auditioning for Blue’s long lost sister on Blue’s Clues so I can hang out with Joshua Dela Cruz,” one user tweeted, sharing a funny video of herself prancing around in a home-goods store, modeling a blue blanket.

Thinking beyond Dela Cruz’s physical appearance, another wrote, “Everyone is going on about how hot Joshua Dela Cruz is but all I’m thinking about is how he seems like an approachable and friendly chill dude that you can just hang out with.”

Fans even dug up videos of the new Nick Jr. host — who’s also a Broadway performer —belting out songs like “We Kiss in a Shadow” from The King and I and “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”


Dela Cruz spoke to BuzzFeed News about his newfound admiration, revealing his phone had been “blowing up” as of late — but he didn’t really mind, considering it was for “positive” reasons.

“It’s definitely flattering. It is a little weird only because you don’t think in your life you’ll ever get this kind of exposure,” he added. “I never, ever thought that I would trend on Twitter in any capacity.”

His wife, Amanda (yes, he has been married for three years), shared her favorite quote from her husband’s BuzzFeed interview on her Instagram account (Amanda's Instagram handle is "Amanda Please", which could suggest she was a fan of Nickelodeon's The Amanda Show, starring Amanda Bynes!): “So thank you to everyone who’s keeping this story alive, and in my old age I’ll look back at the fond day that I was trending as a thirst trap on Twitter.”

The caption accompanied a collage post of the many trending photos and headlines about the actor.


Nickelodeon released the first promo for the upcoming reboot of the beloved children’s show this past May — and in addition to a new host, it boasts all-new animations in the form of its titular dog, now CGI-animated.

Just like original host Steve Burns, Dela Cruz has a Thinking Chair, a Handy Dandy Notebook and friends like Tickety Tock, Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper, Mailbox and Magenta. But this time around, the host has a fresh blue-striped shirt, a new musical style and a Handy Dandy Guitar.


Joshua Dela Cruz on Blue's Clues & You!

The actor played the understudy of Aladdin and a member of the ensemble in Broadway’s stage musical of the Disney animated movie. And when it came to casting him, Burns — who hosted the original Blue’s Clues from 1996 to 2003 — played a significant role.

“I had the great honor of being a part of the search for the new host, and I give Josh two thumbs up!” said Burns, 45, in an earlier statement. “He can definitely fill my shoes and the rugby shirt.”

Blue’s Clues & You! premieres on November 11 on Nickelodeon. Click the following link for more info!: http://nickalive.blogspot.com/2019/08/nickelodeons-brand-new-preschool-series.html

From BuzzFeed News:

The New Host Of “Blue’s Clues” Knows You Think He’s A Hottie And He’s Very Flattered

People on Twitter have never been thirstier for a children’s TV host.

When the new host of the upcoming Blue’s Clues revival was announced, people were super excited to see some Filipino representation.

And now, they’re also super excited because it turns out that Joshua Dela Cruz, who will be the face of Blue’s Clues & You, is a grade-A hottie.

People on Twitter discovered Dela Cruz’s Instagram pictures, and the thirsting began.


The replies honestly got really NSFW.


Dela Cruz told BuzzFeed News he was filming all day and his phone kept “blowing up,” but he only caught bits and pieces of the thirstfest.

“From the little bits I’ve gathered, it’s positive,” he said.

“It’s definitely flattering. It is a little weird only because you don’t think in your life you’ll ever get this kind of exposure.”

He was especially amused by the rhyming in this tweet:


“They’re very clever,” Dela Cruz said.

He’s also just really excited for the new show to launch in November.

“I’m super pumped,” he said. “My relationship with Blue’s Clues is a little bit embarrassing because I was definitely not the target demographic when they released the show in the ’90s,” he said.

Dela Cruz said he used to watch the show with his younger sister during sleepovers at his aunt’s house, who had cable TV.

“What’s crazier about this time around is when the show first came out there wasn’t any social media, and now we have a second audience because the kids who watched the show growing up have kids now,” he said.

But Dela Cruz said he’s happy that people will be watching and learning, no matter what drew them in.


The last thing he expected was to be trending on social media, but here we are.

“I never, ever thought that I would trend on Twitter in any capacity,” he said.

“So thank you to everyone who’s keeping this story alive, and in my old age I’ll look back at the fond day that I was trending as a thirst trap on Twitter.”

Nick Jr. USA Debuts 'HobbyKids Adventures' on NickJr.com

Nick Jr. USA, Nickelodeon's top-rated network for preschoolers, has debuted HobbyKids Adventures, a brand-new animated series created by Butch Hartman (Fairly OddParents, Danny Phantom, T.U.F.F. Puppy, Bunsen Is a Beast), online at nickjr.com! The series is produced by Pocket.watch, the kids media brand that celebrates the new digital stars, franchises and formats that kids love today.


Inspired by the massively popular YouTube channel HobbyKidsTV, HobbyKids Adventures follows the antics of three brothers who fly, bounce, zip and zoom their way through hilarious escapades! With HobbyPig’s leadership, HobbyFrog’s brains and HobbyBear’s cuteness, the HobbyKids use fun, food and amazing inventions to triumph over arch enemies, “the Slobby Kids,” and make the world a better place!

Meet the Characters!:


HobbyPig (left) - The oldest. The leader. The boss and the guy who calls the shots! HobbyPig is never serious. His main goal is to not only get things done but to look super cool while doing so. A total daredevil with no fear, he’s the first one to leap into whatever fray the HobbyKids find themselves in!

HobbyBear (center) - The cute one. The youngest, HobbyBear is super-mischievous and always getting into trouble! He’s so cute and adorable the he can get out of trouble simply by turning on his big, green, “puppy dog eyes.” But watch out when his eyes turn red…!

HobbyFrog (right) - Always bouncing off the walls (hey, he’s a frog!) “Cowabunga” is his middle name! He’s a super-curious inventor and an expert at putting unlikely items together to assemble anything the team needs to help them in their adventures!


HobbyMom & HobbyDad - The Hobbykids’ parental units! Fun-loving and always supportive, HobbyMom and HobbyDad are the wind beneath the kids’ wings. The HobbyKids love doing things on their own, but when things get too big to handle, HobbyMom and HobbyDad are right there!


The SlobbyKids - SlobbyRat, SlobbySkunk, and SlobbySnake are the SlobbyKids! The polar opposite to the HobbyKids, you can count on these guys to find a way to try and ruin the day! You can often see them traveling around in the Street Beater, a vehicle made from junk slapped together from the dumpster!

Online at nickjr.com, kids and parents can find out more about the show and watch the first two full episodes.


HobbyKids Adventures made its world debut on the HobbyKidsTV YouTube network on Saturday, June 22, 2019. Following the series premiere, Pocket.watch is now launching a HobbyKids Adventures consumer products line, which will comprise toys, apparel, bedding, room décor, pajamas, backpacks, and more. Products will be created alongside licensing companies Just Play, The Bentex Group, Franco Manufacturing, and Bio World, and will be distributed exclusively at Walmart (where Ryan launched his brand). To fete the series premiere, Pocket.watch hosted an eight-week experiential tour at 24 Walmart parking lots across the U.S., including Hobbykids Adventures viewing parties and meet-and-greets with the whole family.

HobbyKids Adventures will also be promoted through partnerships with fast food chains Carl’s Jr. and Hardees. In August, the restaurants will launch HobbyKids Adventures-branded children’s meals in 3,800 restaurants nationwide.

The tentpole HobbyKidsTV channel launched in 2013 and has subsequently become one of the biggest kid-friendly destinations on YouTube, with 3.5 million subscribers and over 6.2 billion lifetime views.

The news follows Pocket.watch producing Ryan’s Mystery Playdate, starring Ryan from Ryan ToysReview, for Nickelodeon, which, since launch, has become the number-one preschool show on all TV.
