File this in the “For What It’s Worth” department, but an interesting story passed our desk recently and we are now passing along to you. According to The Tracking Board, Paramount Pictures is developing a live-action/animated mega film that features characters from many beloved Nickelodeon cartoons from the 1990s all in one picture, including Hey Arnold!, Rugrats, Ren and Stimpy, Rocko’s Modern Life, and The Angry Beavers, among others.
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.
