It may be unfair to rank animated characters from television on the same list as those from film. A long running cartoon series has so much more time to develop the character. This character has had over fifteen years, four hundred episodes and two full length feature films in which to pique our fascination. However, I believe that SpongeBob Squarepants won this spot on the top ten most fascinating characters from the first moment we met him in episode one, “Help Wanted,” which aired on Nickelodeon on May Day of 1999.
Nickelodeon is jumping into the fray of original online programming with its new series Welcome to the Wayne. Available exclusively on Nick.com and the new Nickelodeon mobile app, the series follows the adventures of a 10-year-old boy named Olly Timbers and his friends who live in a “wacky apartment building.”
Nickelodeon has begun airing season (or “book”) three of their series The Legend of Korra. Season three, entitled Book Three: Change, quietly made its debut on Friday, June 27th with three new episodes (or “chapters”) shown consecutively that night. New episodes will begin airing again on Friday, July 11th. Select past episodes can be viewed on Nick.com.
