The original series marks the return of the globally renowned characters to television for the first time in nearly 40 years and follows Papa Smurf, Smurfette, Brainy, Hefty, Clumsy and the other inhabitants of Smurf Village on all-new adventures, packed with humor, heart and high-stakes action. In the premiere episode, “Smurf-Fu,” when Smurfette rescues Brainy from a giant snake, the other Smurfs ask her to teach them “Smurf-Fu.” Next in, “Diaper Daddy,” when everyone is tired of changing Baby’s diapers, Handy decides to invent a robot that will do the job.

Upcoming episodes include: "Clumsy Not Clumsy" (#102), "Unsmurfable Smile" (#103), "Who's Heftier?" (#104), "Smurfs In Disguise" (#105), "DRIIINNGGGGG!" (#106), "Alien Smurf" (#107), "Leaf It Alone" (#108) and "Bringing Up Smurfy" (#109).

The voice cast pushing the charm and absurdity of the original comics to even greater heights in the U.S.-English dub includes: David Freeman (7 Promises) as Papa Smurf, the father figure keeping the other Smurfs in line; Berangere McNeese (Matriochkas) as Smurfette, a curious Smurf who is always ready to take part in new adventures; Lenny Mark Irons (No Man’s Land) as Gargamel, a conniving human wizard with a bottomless thirst to capture Smurfs; Youssef El Kaoukibi (NRJ Belgium) as Brainy, who considers himself the smartest of the bunch; and Catherine Hershey (Boundary Games) as Willow, the brave and wise matriarch of a new tribe of girl Smurfs.

The Smurfs CG-animated series acquisition is overseen by Layla Lewis, Senior Vice President, Global Acquisitions and Content Partnerships and Dana Cluverius, Senior Vice President, Current Series Animation for Nickelodeon.

The brand-new series underscores Nickelodeon’s strategy to be the home of the biggest franchises kids and families love. The Smurfs expands Nickelodeon’s growing portfolio of influential properties that already includes SpongeBob SquarePants, The Patrick Star Show, Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years, PAW Patrol, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Blue’s Clues & You!, the all-new animated Star Trek: Prodigy series and the Transformers co-production.

The Smurfs is a Peyo Productions and Dupuis Audiovisuel production, in co-production with KiKA, Ketnet and RTBF, with the participation of TF1 and with the participation of Wallimage (La Wallonie), of Screen Flanders, of BNPPFFF and with the support of the Tax Shelter of the Belgian Government and the participation of the CNC.

Check out a FREE digital excerpt of "Suki Alone" here ➡️ https://at.nick.com/2Zdu7MC

NEW AVATAR: THE LAST AIRBENDER LIVE READING: VOICE ACTORS PRESENT SUKI, ALONE!

Avatar: The Last Airbender Voice Actress Jennie Kwan and More Special Guests Present a Live Reading of New Graphic Novel 'Suki, Alone'


Dark Horse and Nickelodeon are teaming up to bring fans another special live stream event from the most recent Avatar: The Last Airbender graphic novel, Suki, Alone. Voice actress Jennie Kwan (Suki in Avatar: The Last Airbender) is joined by fellow voice actors Deedee Magno Hall (Steven Universe), Justine Huxley (Apex Legends), Catero Alain Colbert (Naruto), and comic creators Faith Erin Hicks and Peter Wartman to bring the new graphic novel to life. The live stream will be broadcast on both Dark Horse Comics' Twitch and Nickelodeon's YouTube channels. The stream begins September 22, at 1:00 pm PST.

Guests will come together to read an excerpt from the latest graphic novel made from the Dark Horse and Nickelodeon partnership, Suki, Alone. Following the live reading, the comics creators and voice talent will join in a Q&A session about their work on and around the Nickelodeon series, and the guests will have the opportunity to compete in a round of Avatar: The Last Airbender trivia!

In Suki, Alone, Suki is captured by the Fire Nation and brought to the Boiling Rock, a grim prison in the middle of a dormant volcano. Separated from Team Avatar and her Kyoshi Warrior sisters, she decides to build her own community among other prisoners. But it's going to take more than an encouraging word to build trust among so many frightened people. Suki will need to draw on all her resources to do it, and even that might not be enough.

Enjoy all-new material from Faith Erin Hicks (The Nameless City; The Adventures of Superhero Girl) and Peter Wartman (Stonebreaker), with colors by Adele Matera. Written in consultation with original series writer Tim Hedrick!


Giveaway: During the stream, Dark Horse will give away a prize pack including one copy each of Suki, Alone, as well as the previous standalone graphic novels Toph Beifong's Metalbending Academy, and Katara and the Pirate's Silver. Participants must enter during the live broadcast in the Twitch stream chat (instructions will be given during the broadcast). One entry per person/Twitch account. Full rules and disclaimer below.

Dark Horse's award-winning Avatar: The Last Airbender program has seen multiple number-one New York Times bestsellers and continues to grow. Suki, Alone is the latest in an ongoing partnership between Nickelodeon and Dark Horse to bring fans the very best in graphic novels. Learn more about the whole line HERE.

If you don’t win, then you can check out Things From Another World, who will be offering 30% off Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra graphic novels in honor of the event. This event sounds super fun, and I hope that they can have the chance to do this more with their other comics. Will you be there?

First look at TMNT’s April O’Neil in 'Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl'

April O'Neil Showcase | Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl | GameMill Entertainment


Learn all about April O'Neil's moves and mechanics from the developers behind Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl.

For more on the game, head here: https://nickelodeonallstarbrawl.com/

Original post:

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl developers talk about her design and modernizing her for release


Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl is on the way, and with it, the antics of a silly cast of Nickelodeon characters duking it out in the fighting arena. Developed by Ludosity and Fair Play Labs, Nickelodeon’s spin on a Super Smash Bros.-style fighting game will feature familiar faces like SpongeBob SquarePants and Patrick Star, along with some of Nicktoon’s most popular characters. And with the introduction of so many unconventional fighters comes the opportunity for new ones to enter the fighting arena, including April O’Neil, a star of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Polygon has unveiled a Turtley Awesome first look at her moveset, along with an interview with the developers, which you can watch on Polygon.com.

April O’Neil is a journalist and friend to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. She first appeared in 1984, in the long-running Mirage Studios TMNT comic series — where she was a computer programmer — before becoming a core supporting character and news reporter in the 1987 animated series. While April was a pants-wearing career woman, whose work seriously helped the Turtles, she wasn’t depicted as an action hero. She was often relegated to the sidelines and fell victim to the tropes of the times. In the cartoon, she’s often kidnapped by enemies, an occurrence so common that someone made a YouTube video of all 87 times she got kidnapped.

For Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, the developers went with the classic 1987 look for April, as well as the other Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles characters. “It’s the one closest to our hearts,” Joel Nystrรถm, CEO of Ludosity, told Polygon via email. But they took a different approach from the original comics and cartoons by bringing her onto the roster as a bonafide fighter.

“We didn’t want to make her a damsel in distress, we wanted her to be very capable and kick butt,” said Nystrรถm.

You can check out the video for a deeper dive into her attacks, but the team settled on a moveset inspired by her career as a journalist. In the game, she won’t just be throwing punches, but microphones and other AV equipment as well. And she’ll be doing it all in her classic yellow jumpsuit.

“We know April isn’t a martial arts expert like her turtle friends, so we wanted to give her all sorts of retro recording equipment which are completely inspired by the same props you would see in the show,” said Diego Hernรกndez, art director at Fair Play Labs.

Hernรกndez said that it was fun for the team to go back and “give a fresh coat of paint” not only to April but to the entire Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles world with new 3D models. “The most exciting thing was going through all the original TV show episodes and nailing down her look,” Hernรกndez said. “Back in the day, animators had a lot of freedom and her appearance could change quite a bit from one episode to the other.”

This isn’t the only game aiming to revamp April’s original design. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge, a retro-styled, four-player, co-op beat-’em-up being developed by Tribute Games, is reimagining her as a street fighter. She’ll also be using her microphone and television cameras as weapons, in a nod to her classic design.

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl is coming out Oct. 5 to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.

From IGN:

TMNT's April O'Neil enters the arena in this Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl showcase. April is a glass cannon type of fighter, equipped with a unique meter that she can build over the course of a round by landing specific attacks. Spending the meter later results in her attacks dealing significantly more damage. In this gameplay overview, Markus Villalobos from the Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl development team walks us through April's moves and abilities.

###


April O'Neil's light moveset in Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl consist primarily of attacks using her microphone or simple kick moves, while her strong moves upgrade to using her boom mic, notepad and photo camera. Meanwhile, her special attacks showcase a floating blimp and film camera, and her neutral special unlocks her special ratings ability. Any of April's attacks that have a flashing camera will help her accumulate points on a ratings meter, indicated by stars floating around her microphone. She can then use these ratings to deal extra damage in her neutral special, a unique feature that gives her a different flair from other characters. April's stage is called Rooftop Rumble, a city rooftop with a water tower platform and the Channel 6 building in the background. Check out the full list of April's Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl moves below.

From Game Rant:

April O'Neil's move set revolves around building up "ratings" to deliver a massive killing blow, with the character able to use her camera and microphone to bully opponents. The video describes her as glass cannon, with plenty of high-damage abilities but fewer defensive moves. It seems players will want to focus on using certain attacks to build April's ratings meter, setting up the opportune time to unleash a finisher known as "Breaking News," which can be exceptionally powerful depending on how much power they've amassed. It looks similar to Little Mac's KO punch in Super Smash Bros, with players storing power before releasing a powerful knockout blow.

From IGN:

TMNT's Michelangelo shows off his moves in this new Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl showcase. Michelangelo is a rushdown character that can confidently take on foes in close quarters combat. He is particularly skilled at juggling opponents and controlling the fight, whether it's on the stage, or in the air.

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl's Thaddeus Crews takes us through Michelangelo's abilities, including his attacks and special moves. If you're keen to pick up the the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles character when All-Star Brawl releases, check out this deep dive for a look at what he's capable of.

From Game Rant:

Michaelangelo specializes in juggling enemies to deal massive damage. Referred to as a rushdown fighter, the jokey turtle gets up close and personal with his enemies, using a grappling hook to pull them in and sliding on his shell to deal massive damage. Michelangelo can even use pizza as a weapon, throwing his favorite food at foes as a projectile. Both turtles come with their own stages, with players able to fight in their home sewer or inside the Technodrome, which features a fun appearance from long-time TMNT baddie, Krang.

Eight All-New Episodes from the First Season Drop Thursday, Oct. 7
Exclusively on Paramount+


09.21.2021

Paramount+, the streaming service from ViacomCBS, today announced the renewal of the original series RUGRATS for a second season (13 episodes) in the U.S., Latin America, Australia and Canada, with more adventures from the colorful imaginations of Tommy, Chuckie, Angelica, Susie, Phil and Lil. The all-new RUGRATS first premiered on Paramount+ in May and the next eight episodes of season one will be available to stream exclusively on the service beginning Thursday, Oct. 7.

“Kids series are a key driver of engagement for Paramount+,” said Tanya Giles, Chief Programming Officer, Paramount+. “With the renewal of RUGRATS for a second season, we look forward to bringing even more adventures with Tommy, Chuckie, Angelica and the rest of the Rugrats for kids and families to enjoy.”

“This next season of RUGRATS will dive even deeper into the secret life of babies and their unsuspecting parents, while continuing to highlight the main themes of friendship and family,” said Ramsey Naito, President, Nickelodeon Animation. “For 30 years, the Rugrats have resonated with fans around the globe and we can’t wait to continue telling original and fresh stories with these beloved characters.”

From Nickelodeon Animation Studio, the brand-new RUGRATS series is a reimagining of the classic ‘90s hit that features rich and colorful CG-animation and follows the babies—Tommy, Chuckie, Angelica, Susie, and Phil and Lil—as they explore the world and beyond from their pint-sized and wildly imaginative point-of-view. Following the season one run on Paramount+, the series will air on Nickelodeon at a later date to be announced.

In the all-new season one episodes, the babies will continue to find themselves in a variety of situations by using their wild imaginations, including defeating an “outer space villain,” traveling through Chuckie’s dad’s body, embarking upon a daring mission to break Angelica out of preschool and more. The new batch of episodes also includes a half-hour, Halloween-themed special where Tommy needs his friends’ help to save Angelica after she turns into a werewolf at a scary Halloween party as their parents seem to disappear one by one.

The series stars EG Daily (Tommy Pickles), Nancy Cartwright (Chuckie Finster), Cheryl Chase (Angelica Pickles), Cree Summer (Susie Carmichael), and Kath Soucie (Phil and Lil DeVille), all of whom are reprising their iconic roles in this new series.

The original adventurous babies’ voice cast is joined by new voices, including Ashley Rae Spillers and Tommy Dewey (Tommy’s parents, Didi and Stu Pickles); Tony Hale (Chuckie’s father, Chas Finster); Natalie Morales (Phil and Lil’s mother, Betty DeVille); Anna Chlumsky and Timothy Simons (Angelica’s parents, Charlotte and Drew Pickles); Nicole Byer and Omar Miller (Susie’s parents, Lucy and Randy Carmichael); and Michael McKean (Grandpa Lou Pickles).

Produced by Nickelodeon Animation Studio, the all-new RUGRATS is based on the series created by Arlene Klasky, Gabor Csupo, and Paul Germain. Kate Boutilier (“Rugrats”) and Casey Leonard (“Breadwinners”) are executive producers and Dave Pressler (“Robot and Monster”) and Rachel Lipman (“Rugrats”) serve as co-executive producers, with Kellie Smith (“The Fairly OddParents”) as line producer on season two. Charlie Adler (“Rugrats”) serves as the voice director. Production is overseen by Mollie Freilich, Senior Manager, Current Series Animation, Nickelodeon.

Today’s “RUGRATS” renewal news comes as the iconic series celebrates 30 years since the original launch. The original “Rugrats” series launched August 11, 1991 and instantly became a groundbreaking phenomenon, spawning consumer products and three hit theatrical releases, cementing its place in pop culture history through its iconic characters, storytelling and unique visual style. “Rugrats” was in production for nine seasons over the course of 13 years. The series earned four Daytime Emmy Awards, six Kids' Choice Awards, and its own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Leonardo Showcase | TMNT | Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl | GameMill Entertainment

Leonardo Showcase | TMNT | Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl | GameMill Entertainment


Learn all about Leonardo's moves and mechanics from the developers behind Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl.





As everyone could probably predict, the majority of the TMNT leader's attacks rely on his swords. They apparently don't do all that much damage, but Leo's variety of slashes allow him to create extended combos and quickly chip away at his opponent's health.

Instead of KO'ing the likes of SpongeBob SquarePants through the blast zone, a good chunk of his moves on the ground or air aim to spike them downwards to take off stocks.

While Leonardo can't fire off a projectile like in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Tournament Fighters, his Scissor Slash and spinning Endless Screw special look similar enough to the Super Nintendo / Sega Genesis title that they could be references to it.

Leonardo will be able to use the following moves in the game: Light Neutral “Horizontal Slash”, Light Up “Vertical Slash”, Light Down “Leg Sweep”, Light Neutral Air “Slash”, Light Up Air “Aerial Vertical Slash”, Light Down Air “Down Slash”, Light Dash Attack “Shell Shock”, Strong Neutral “Dual Horizontal Slash”, Strong Up “Dual Vertical Slash”, Strong Down “Scissor Slash”, Strong Neutral Air “Aerial Dual Horizontal Slash”, Strong Up Air “Dual Hit”, Strong Down Air “Aerial Scissor Slash Down”, Strong Dash Attack “Running Hit”, Neutral Special “Niten Ichi-ryu”, Up Special “Endless Screw”, and Down Special “Backflip”.

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl continues the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme for Leonardo with his home stage Sewer Slam. It’s a small stage with one platform in the middle, which occasionally oozes out sludge from the pipes to push players it comes into contact with.

Take a look at today’s Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl video showing off the full moveset for Leonardo above.

For more on the game, head here: https://nickelodeonallstarbrawl.com/

From Game Rant:

According to the clip, the leader of the Ninja Turtles is a fast-paced aggressor that can pepper his foes with a barrage of quick, low-damage attacks using his dual katanas, with his move set mostly focusing on speed and maneuverability. The showcase ends with a battle between Leonardo and SpongeBob, showing how the ninja can quickly move across the stage and spike foes off the side.

Netflix's Live-Action 'Avatar: The Last Airbender' Stars Show Off Their Chemistry on New Instagram Live

Netflix is prepping to release a highly anticipated live-action adaptation with its upcoming Avatar: The Last Airbender series, and the stars that will be portraying some of your favorite benders are already sharing their chemistry on social media. With actors Gordon Cormier, Kiawentiio, Ian Ousley, and Dallas Liu portraying the likes of Aang, Katara, Sokka, and Prince Zuko respectively, the latest Instagram post featuring two of these stars proves not only the fact that these actors have chemistry, but that they are big fans of the source material that helped make the Nickelodeon series a fan favorite.


Prince Zuko and Sokka weren't always seeing eye to eye, with it taking quite some time for the brother of Katara to become friends with the exile from the Fire Nation. One of the major ways that they were able to break the ice was by sharing stories of lost loves, wherein Sokka was able to, hilariously, explain that his ex-girlfriend was transformed into a fish to become the moon spirit due to her destiny. With Zuko saying a now-legendary response in "That's rough, buddy," the two actors that will be portraying these characters in the upcoming adaptation shared this hilarious catchphrase that has become a big meme within the fan community.

Twitter Outlet Avatar News shared this hilarious exchange between Ian Ousley and Dallas Liu in which the upcoming Zuko and Soka sharing the hilarious exchange that helped define the relationship between the former enemies in the beloved franchise of Avatar The Last Airbender:


As Avatar fans know, this upcoming series won't be the only future project in the world of bending as Nickelodeon is currently working on new series and movies in the world of Aang and Korra via Avatar Studios.

What do you think of the chemistry between Dallas Liu and Ian Ousley? Feel free to let me know in the comments!
