Paramount Applies to Register Trademarks For TMNT, CatDog, Real Monsters, Invader ZIM, Angry Beavers and Slime NFTs

Following the success of Nickelodeon's first batch of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), it looks like Nickelodeon will be bringing more iconic properties to the NFT marketplace in the near future.

According to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), Paramount Global, the parent company of the Nickelodeon brand, has applied to register the trademarks for NFTs inspired by Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, CatDog, AAAHH!!! Real Monsters, Invader ZIM, and Angry Beavers, as well as for Slime.

Paramount has applied to trademark Teenage Mutant Ninja TurtlesAAAHH!!! Real MonstersInvader ZIMAngry Beavers, and Slime under NICE Classes 09 and 42, and CatDog under NICE Class 09.

NICE Class 09 is for scientific and electric apparatus and instruments, downloadable multimedia files containing artwork relating to the field of entertainment authenticated by non-fungible tokens (NFTs); downloadable virtual goods, namely, crypto-collectibles and non-fungible tokens (NFTs), whilst NICE Class 42 is for scientific, technological and industrial services, research and design: software as a service (SAAS), namely, software for transferring crypto-collectibles and application tokens; platform as a service (PAAS), namely, software for accessing crypto-collectibles and application tokens; providing online non-downloadable computer software for enabling the transfer of crypto-collectibles and non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

At the time of posting, each trademark application, filed earlier this month (Sept. 2022) is currently pending approval.

The news follows the success of Nickelodeon's first NFT drop earlier this summer in partnership with RECUR, which saw the release of NFTs based on two beloved Nickelodeon properties from the '90s: Rugrats and Hey Arnold!. Nickelodeon also applied to register the trademark for SpongeBob NFTs earlier this year, which is still pending approval.

In addition to RECUR, Funko has also released Nickelodeon NFTs based on retro Nickelodeon favorites as well as Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra.
