Nickelodeon Launches Nick Pet Cam

The world can seem like a scary place at the moment, with the on-going COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic and widespread protests following the tragic death of George Floyd by police. To help make the world seem a little less scary, Nickelodeon in the U.S. has introduced viewers to Pet Cam.


The Nick Pet Cam box pops up in the bottom left corner of the screen (as a lower-third graphic) during shows, as like the name suggests, features short video clips of adorable pets of all kinds! Below is a video featuring the Nickelodeon Pet Cam popping up during an episode of SpongeBob SquarePants.

Nickelodeon has a pet cam during their shows, this is so pure from r/antiassholedesign

It's unclear when exactly Nickelodeon launched the Pet Cam, however, it's likely to be part of Nickelodeon's #KidsTogether multiplatform prosocial initiative.

For April Fools, NickALive! joked that Nickelodeon were launching Nick Jr. PAWS, a brand new channel just for pets. Could we be seeing a NickPAWS channel launched soon? ;)

'Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2: Grand Prix' Set for October 2020 Release

READY, SET, SLIME! The online website for retailer Target has prematurely revealed Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2: Grand Prix, a sequel to 2018's Nickelodeon Kart Racers - and this time promises to be bigger and slimier than ever before!


Indeed, Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2: Grand Prix appears to be coming soon, and will presumably be announced soon. The rating on the Australian Classification website doesn't tell us much (other than that the game exists), but the retail listing on Target's website gives us some brief information.

Listed on the website for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and Xbox Series X, the upcoming racer seems to be a massively expanded version of the series’ previous entry. It's currently unknown whether it'll be released on the upcoming PS5.


The game will be released on October 6, 2020, and will carry a pricetag of $39.99.

While the first game pushed itself as the defacto representation of Nickelodeon’s large cast of beloved characters, the game only included characters from SpongeBob SquarePants, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Rugrats and Hey Arnold!.


According to the webpage, the sequel is set to include 30 playable characters -- up from the original's 12 -- along with 70 "companion characters", also described as crew members. Judging by this, it seems the sequel will have a much wider representation of Nick's back catalogue. In fact, shows and characters named in the product listing include JoJo Siwa, SpongeBob, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Rugrats, Ren & Stimpy, Hey Arnold!, The Legend of Korra and The Loud House. It also seems the sequel will feature online multiplayer for eight-player races, more tracks, and customisable karts. It's billed as a bigger, better version of 2018's first game in the series.

Update: Revealed during today's IGN Expo, the game will also include Invader Zim, Danny Phantom and Rocko's Modern Life! The game will feature 28 tracks (both new and remade), a suite of other Nick characters appearing as pit crew, and customisable karts will feature parts inspired by Nick shows. One of the courses will be themed after Double Dare.

With four-player split-screen, or eight-player online co-op and a lot of slime, it's billed as a bigger, better version of 2018's first game in the series.

Unfortunately, it doesn't feature characters from Glitch Techs, a show about video games.

Trailer:


Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2: Grand Prix will once again be published by GameMill Entertainment.

Highlights

- 30 playable racers and 70 crew members to choose from
- Tens of thousands of different all-star character combinations
- 28 tracks and 2 arenas
- Customizable Karts with multiple power-ups and special attacks
- ONLINE up to 8 players and 4-player Local Multi-Player

Specifications

- Model Compatibility: PlayStation 4
- ESRB Content Description: RP - rating pending
- Electronics Condition: New
- Video Game Genre: Action/adventure
- Software Format: Blu-ray
- ESRB Age Rating: RP - Rating Pending

Description

- READY, SET, SLIME! Nickelodeon Kart Racers is back and we've brought the whole gang and MORE! In Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2: Grand Prix, you can select from 30 playable characters and 70 companion characters to assemble your ultimate pit crew across your favorite Nickelodeon series, including Jojo Siwa, Spongebob, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Rugrats, Hey Arnold!, Ren & Stimpy, The Loud House, and more!
If the item details above aren’t accurate or complete, we want to know about it. Report incorrect product info.

Screenshots:


“The Nicktoons are back and ready to race! Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2 features new tracks, online play, and brand new characters (Including Aang and Korra from Avatar the Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra). This sequel is hitting PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch in October 2020.

Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2: Grand Prix is ready to help players indulge in all their ‘90s nostalgia as players race around the slime-covered tracks as famous Nickelodeon cartoon characters like Spongebob Squarepants, Chucky from Rugrats, Arnold from Hey Arnold, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and many more.

Eagle-eyed viewers of the Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2 trailer will also notice characters like Heffer from Rocko’s Modern life and Invader Zim.

Prepare to give into your need for mild cartoon violence as Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2 whips around turns and lets you wreck havoc on other Nickelodeon icons like the Leo (and the other ninja turtles from TMNT) and Patrick from Spongebob.”

NEW YORK--ViacomCBS Inc. (NASDAQ: VIAC; VIACA) today named Bruce Gillmer, President of Music, Music Talent, Programming & Events at ViacomCBS Media Networks, effective immediately.

In his elevated role, Gillmer will form and chair a new cross-company initiative to coordinate ViacomCBS’ music programming, talent and events strategy.

Internationally, he will expand his remit to manage priority events across the brand portfolio. Additionally, the Music & Events, Celebrity Talent and Creative Music Integration teams across ViacomCBS Entertainment & Youth brands will report into Gillmer along with the MTV International music and talent teams.

Gillmer most recently served as Head of Global Music and Executive Vice President, Music & Talent, Programming & Events for Viacom International Media Networks. He and his team created and produced numerous music series, specials and initiatives, most recently MTV Fresh Out Live!; the reimagined, local versions of YO! MTV Raps in countries around the world; MTV documentary series The Ride; MTV Push, a global initiative to spotlight new music talent; and many others. Additionally, his group continues to connect fans with artists during this unprecedented time with the launches of MTV Unplugged at Home globally and the worldwide MTV Prom-athon livestream.

How 'Avatar: The Last Airbender' Highlights Characters with Disabilities

Avatar: The Last Airbender has always been praised for its culturally diverse cast of characters. It has also been recognized for approaching heavy material like trauma and genocide in a way that children could understand. It's spin-off series, The Legend of Korra has also been praised for including a LGBT+ storyline. However, we should never forget that Avatar: The Last Airbender was also a pioneer for disability representation.


The critically acclaimed Nickelodeon franchise, which ran from 2005 to 2008, has always boasted a respectably large fanbase, especially among those who grew up with the show. Hordes of dedicated followers have even regarded the series as one of the best television shows of all time. Since Netflix added all three seasons of the show to its platform May 15, there has been a major resurgence in the public interest, and it quickly became Netflix’s No. 1 most–watched show in the United States.

The series takes place in a world based on various Asian and indigenous cultures like Chinese, Japanese and Inuit. Some people in this world have the ability to manipulate one of the four elements: fire, water, earth and air. This talent is called bending. One person, called the Avatar, is able to bend all four of the elements. The Avatar is ancient and has been reincarnated repeatedly to maintain balance in the world.

In this series, the Avatar is a young airbender named Aang (Zach Tyler Eisen). The story follows Aang as he and his three friends — Katara (Mae Whitman) and Sokka (Jack De Sena), siblings from the Southern Water Tribe, and earthbender Toph Beifong (Jessie Flower) — fight to prevent the Fire Nation from taking over the world.

Toph is undeniably the most well-known character with a disability in the show. She is Aang’s earthbending teacher, regarded as the most skilled and innovative earthbender of her time, and she was born blind. At 12 years old, Toph is within the target age range of the series’ viewers and is an impressively talented example of a fictional character with a disability.

Since the series was rejoined Netflix's library, countless fans have grabbed some snacks and sat down to binge-watch the television show that had defined their childhoods. Rewatching the series, its easy to pick up on just how ahead of its time the show was in its portrayal of characters with disabilities. Instead of drawing attention to its characters with disabilities and othering them from the rest of the world because of how different they are, Avatar: The Last Airbender integrates their contributions seamlessly. This natural inclusion is a major step away from how we usually see these characters in modern media.

Besides Toph, other characters with disabilities in the show include Teo (Daniel Samonas), a nonbender who was injured as a child during a Fire Nation raid and now uses a wheelchair, and Combustion Man, an assassin who was hired to kill the Avatar and sports a prosthetic leg and arm.

Apart from this series, children's series from this time period are not known for their stellar representations of individuals with disabilities. To this day, although 25% of the U.S. population has some sort of disability, a measly 16% of children’s programs feature characters with disabilities, none of whom were main characters.

Adding to this disappointing reality of underrepresentation, only 2.1% of characters from regular prime-time broadcast shows from 2018 to 2019 had disabilities. On top of all of that, when characters with disabilities do exist, they are often harmful, tokenized caricatures meant to spark drama or comedy — think Artie Abrams (Kevin McHale) from Glee, a character who spends most of his time on–screen lamenting the fact that he cannot walk and being pushed around by the able-bodied characters around him.

But the characters with disabilities in Avatar: The Last Airbender are far more than simple tokens. They offer children who watch the show compelling characters they can admire. For example, Toph’s bending is bolstered by her disability. She trained herself to feel vibrations in the ground with her feet so she can detect her opponent’s moves before they follow through. While an earthbender with sight might fight reflexively, Toph has the unparalleled ability to dodge, and even counter–attack, as soon as she feels her opponent move. This talent gives her a major leg up during duels, making her a formidable fighter. The way she uses the vibrations is reminiscent of the way blind people in real life use tools like canes to feel the texture of the ground or to sense objects in their surroundings. She does not miraculously have the ability to “see,” and the show makes that quite clear.

Teo is similarly known for his fighting skills, although his talents lie in less hands-on combat. Teo’s father, also known as Mechanist (RenΓ© Auberjonois), is an inventor, and, through his research, he discovered that Aang’s people, the long-thought–extinct Air Nomads, invented gliders to fly through the sky with the help of airbending. Teo’s father created gliders for non-airbenders to use with the intention of giving his 13-year-old disabled son a way to move. Mechanist also built technologies like elevators so Teo could easily navigate the mountainous location they live in.

The kid is seriously skilled with his glider and even outflies Aang, the actual airbender, within the first few minutes of meeting him. During his introduction episode, “The Northern Air Temple” in season one, he and the other residents of his city take on a small Fire Nation army that is trying to invade the temple. Teo and the other gliders drop stink and flash bombs on the advancing tanks and troops, but, while all of the other gliders can only drop one or two attacks at a time, Teo uses his wheelchair as a vessel to carry more weapons, a tactic that makes him a threat in the sky.

Another important detail of Teo’s story is that it depicts a community in which everything was actually built for people with disabilities. Teo’s story shows that it is entirely possible to create a society in which things are built with disability in mind from the beginning instead of making the minimum number of changes to avoid being sued.

There have been arguments that accuse Toph, specifically, of falling into the stereotype of “supercrip.” This cliche describes a character with disabilities who can do miraculous things despite the so-called limits of their disability. This stereotype erases the reality of disability and feeds into ableist narratives that suggest people with disabilities are flawed. Although Toph is powerful and excellent at what she does, she is not strong despite her disability. She is just strong.

Avatar: The Last Airbender returning to mainstream consciousness is both a testament to the brilliance of the show and a critical reminder that younger generations must see characters like Toph and Teo in action. This show proves that it is not enough to simply write in a character with disabilities. Showrunners have to take the extra steps to make those characters real, well rounded and honest. Seeing as the show appeals to more than just children, parents can be reminded of the benefits of representation in their children’s media.
