Titled "EVERYONE needs to watch RISE of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles", the session invites fans to join the Rise of the TMNT team for an in-depth celebration on the heart, art & artistry of the half shell heroes! The session will take place online on Wednesday, November 18th 2020 between 8:00PM - 9:00PM (ET). Following the live-stream, the panel will be available to watch online for three months.

EVERYONE needs to watch RISE of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Date: Wednesday, November 18th 2020
Time: 8:00PM - 9:00PM
Location: Online

Break out the Saturday morning breakfast cereal early!

With its bold redesigns and frenetic pacing, Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles split audiences when it arrived in 2018, but fans were steadily won over by the skillfully developed characters, vibrant storytelling, sharp comedy, and even edgier action. (That's a sword pun, I tried.)  While "Strike hard and fade away, without a trace" is sound advice for any ninja, hard to track toys and infrequent airings left audiences hungry for more, even before the series was cut short in August 2020 and production shifted to focus on the Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie.

Join Executive Co-Producers Ant Ward and Andy Suriano, Colour and Design Supervisor Carl Beu, Director and Storyboard Artist JJ Conway, and Annie Award Winning Sakuga Guru Kevin Molina-Ortiz for an in-depth celebration on the heart, art, and artistry of Nickelodeon's newest and most innovative adaptation of the world's favorite half-shelled heroes, and share some never-before-seen content.

JJ Conway, Head of Story, Nickelodeon Animation

JJ Conway has worked in the animation industry since 2011 at studios such as Nickelodeon, Warner Bros Animation, Hasbro, and Titmouse.

Kevin Molina-Ortiz, Head of Story, Nickelodeon Animation

And he now serves as Head of Story on the Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie for Netflix. On his free time, he does pretty much anything that isn’t drawing turtles.

New to the behind the scenes of TAAFI, Thalia is a 10 year industry veteran with a passionate enthusiasm for all things cartoon, and a resume that includes the Willoughby's, Addams Family 2, My Little Pony the Movie, and various TV productions.

As the UK’s leading health and wellbeing store Holland & Barrett will be stocking the range in-store and online, with full exclusivity until the end of 2020.

Nickelodeon France to Premiere 'Tyler Perry’s Young Dylan' on Saturday 5th December 2020

Kid rapper and pint-sized powerhouse Young Dylan will join the Nickelodeon family with the brand-new live-action series, Tyler Perry’s Young Dylan, premiering Saturday 5th December 2020 at 20h50 on Nickelodeon France. Following launch, new episodes will continue to air Saturdays at 20h50 on the Nickelodeon channel in France.

From Megazap:

YOUNG DYLAN, la nouvelle série de Tyler Perry débarque sur NICKELODEON dès le 5 décembre

À partir du 5 décembre les enfants ont rendez-vous avec YOUNG DYLAN, la nouvelle série inédite de Tyler Perry écrite et produite exclusivement pour NICKELODEON !

Magnat du cinéma avec plus d'une trentaine de films à son actif et son propre studio majeur inauguré en 2019, Tyler Perry impose sa vision et son style à Hollywood depuis plus de 20 ans.

En 2019, il débute également sa collaboration avec le groupe ViacomCBS en s'associant notamment à la chaîne BET.

Aujourd'hui c'est avec NICKELODEON qu'il s'associe et signe YOUNG DYLAN, sa toute première série à destination des enfants.

Bienvenue dans le quotidien mouvementé du jeune Dylan, star montante du rap et adepte des leçons de "swag", qui se retrouve à vivre chez son oncle et sa famille un peu trop traditionnelle... Avec cette nouvelle série, les enfants assistent à un choc des cultures hilarant où chacun va devoir apprendre à vivre avec l'autre pour s'accorder sur un même rythme. Pour interpréter l'apprenti rappeur, on retrouve Dylan Gilmer connu pour ses nombreuses apparitions et performances dans le célèbre "The Ellen DeGeneres Show". Le jeune acteur a également été vu dans le reboot de la série à sketchs All That, diffusé en ce moment sur Nickelodeon Teen.

Le pitch : Dans une banlieue chic de Chicago, la famille Wilson voit son quotidien bouleversé par l'arrivée de son neveu Dylan. Le jeune garçon rêve de devenir une star du hip hop, au grand dam de son oncle Myles et de sa tante Yasmine, qui veulent lui inculquer les mêmes valeurs qu'à leurs enfants Charlie et Rebecca. Une nouvelle série qui, comme le dirait si bien Dylan, "déchire" !

Et c'est à découvrir en exclusivité sur NICKELODEON !


Dès le 5 décembre, tous les samedis à 20h50 Inédit sur NICKELODEON, une chaîne disponible dans les Offres Canal+ en Outre-Mer, CanalBox, Orange, SFR, Zeop, GO TV et sur tous les supports TV en France Métropolitaine.

Blue's Clues & You! Host Josh Introduces Viewers to His "Lola"

“Blue’s Clues & You!” host Josh Dela Cruz (L), Carolyn Fe and the fictional puppy named Blue. 

Nickelodeon's beloved preschool series Blue's Clues & You! is set to highlight the Filipino roots of its host, Filipino American Josh Dela Cruz, in an upcoming episode.

Dela Cruz introduces his lola (grandmother) to the show’s viewers when she visits his home, as seen in a snippet shared by E.J. Ramos David, Ph.D. on Twitter today (Nov. 13). Filipino Canadian actor Carolyn Fe portrays Dela Cruz’s grandmother in the episode.

After Dela Cruz lets her in and gives her a hug, he then bows slightly and presses his forehead to one of her hands — a Filipino gesture called “mano po.” It is used to show respect to one’s elders. “It’s my lola!” Josh proudly exclaims. 

“We have an entire generation of American kids being exposed to a Filipino dude on TV, doing the ‘Mano po’ to his Lola, [and] making bibingka. My kids are seeing their lives on TV,” David said.

David is a clinical psychologist, author and professor who discusses internalized oppression and colonial mentality in his works. Following David’s post, fellow Filipinos could not help but express their joy over the upcoming episode.

“I didn’t think this would make me cry, but it did,” a certain @marscaplsw said alongside a GIF of a teary-eyed Will Smith.

Meanwhile, @superkirby982 stated that even though the original show Blue’s Clues - the series Blue's Clues & You! is a remake of - previously featured a Filipino dish called “Paella Rice,” the new episode “takes the cake.”

“The [mano po], which is a gesture we do to greet relatives, the bibingka, which I never had before but I’d like to try, Josh referring to his grandma as [lola], etc. I just love it so much!” the Twitter user stated.

"I JUST SAW THIS AND I’M ACTUALLY TEARING UP OMG THE FILIPINO REPRESENTATION," said @eternalnamgi. "i watched blues clues growing up in the philippines and this seriously means so much to me!!! little filipino kids can finally see themselves on tv ahhh my heart".

“Ok but the minute he said ‘it’s my lola!’ Then did the mano po, a singular tear fell. Representation really does matter,” @davostating1 noted.

"I know everyone is talking about Josh & how amazing he is (b/c he is) & I just wanna say my parents adore him. With age, they’ve taken to winding down with Nick Jr. before bed & they love Peppa Pig & the new Blues Clues. My dad was like 'I really like this Josh guy. He’s good!'," said @shannondrewthis, adding "Blues Clues will forever hold a special place in me and my family’s heart and I’m so glad we get to have a Filipino guy sharing with us and inspiring more kids and just keeping that warmth of the show alive! Go Josh!".

The new episode, titled “Blue’s Big Baking Show" will premiere on Friday, Nov. 20 at 11:00 a.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon USA.
