Song from the The Loud House holiday special "11 Louds a Leapin'".

"That's What Christmas is All About" lyrics:

I used to think that Christmas was
About the wish list filled with stuff
I never really needed, anyway

But as long as we're together, it's a holiday

It's not what you get, it's what you give
We've got the spirit, clear and loud

Ditch the list, hug who you're with
'Cause that's what Christmas is all about!

It's what you give, not what you get
We've got the hard part figured out

This year will be the best one yet
'Cause that's what Christmas is all about!

Merry Christmas from the Louds!

HO!!!

Nickelodeon Italy To Premiere 'Tiny Christmas' On Sunday 24th December 2017 (Added Trailer)

Nickelodeon Italy (Italia) will premiere Tiny Christmas, a brand-new Nickelodeon Original Movie which puts a tiny spin on the year’s biggest holiday, on Sunday 24th December 2017 at 14:00!




Mini Natale | Il trailer con Lizzy Greene e Riele Downs | Nickelodeon Italia
Il film Mini Natale con Lizzy Greene e Riele Downs è il 24 dicembre alle 14 su Nickelodeon (SKY 605)

In Nickelodeon's brand-new holiday TV movie Tiny Christmas, locally titled Mini Natale, it's Christmas Eve, and a clumsy elf accidentally shrinks down two cousins into miniature sizes! The kids are then scooped up into Santa's sack and dropped off across the street at their neighbor's house. In order to make it home for Christmas (just one house away!), the tiny kids must comically work together to navigate holiday hazards - including a giant cat - so that they can set themselves right and make Christmas magic happen! But, will the tiny kids get home on time?



Tiny Christmas stars Riele Downs from Henry Danger and Lizzy Greene from Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn. Matty Finochio will also star in the movie as Chill the Elf.


Based on a script written by screenwriting team Brian Sawyer & Gregg Rossen, Tiny Christmas was filmed in Canada, including in Langley in British Columbia, earlier this year, and is produced by Two 4 The Money Media. The movie is directed by Jon R. Rosenbaum, and executive produced by Michael McGahey (Vice President, Series at MarVista Entertainment). Nickelodeon acquired the script from Brian & Gregg in September 2015. Jordan Cassidy serves as the on-set Dresser for the film, and TINK serves as production designer on the Nickelodeon MOW.

Tiny Christmas made its world debut on Nickelodeon USA on Saturday 2nd December 2017, and is now rolling out on Nickelodeon channels and programming blocks globally.

Nickelodeon's 'Glitch Techs' To Star A Multiethnic Cast

Industry Panel Suggests Ways to Better Represent Muslims in Film and TV

An industry panel discussed ways to avoid Muslim stereotypes in film and TV while also offering suggestions to ensure more authentic representations of Islam and Muslims in Hollywood at a recent event presented by the Writers Guild of America Foundation and the Hollywood Bureau of the Muslim Public Affairs Council.

The MPAC's Hollywood Bureau consults with production companies on authentic portrayals of Muslims and connects companies with Muslim creatives in writers rooms to tell their own stories to ensure that the stories told on the screen are accurate.

The panel discussion, held Monday night at the WGAF/WGA headquarters in Los Angeles, included MPAC president Salam Al-Marayati, actor-writer Dan Milano (Glitch Techs, Robot Chicken, Greg the Bunny), creator/executive producer/writer Chris Keyser (Party of Five, The Last Tycoon, Tyrant), writer Sohrab Noshirvani (Dry River Road, Junkyard Dogs), producer Cherien Dabis (Empire, Quantico), and writer Y. Shireen Razack (Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments, Haven). Writer/producer Valerie C. Woods (Any Day Now, Soul Food) moderated the panel.

"It's no secret that the industry has a knack for vilifying marginalized communities," said Sue Obeidi, director of the MPAC's Hollywood Bureau told The Hollywood Reporter. "However, we did notice that before Trump got into the White House, before he was even elected, representatives of the entertainment industry, television executives and creatives, reached out to us about creating Muslim characters, not your traditional 'bad-guy Arab villain Muslim,' but more authentic narratives.”

The Hollywood Bureau is currently consulting for Nickelodeon’s Glitch Techs, ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy, Hulu’s The Looming Tower, NatGeo’s The State, and Paramount/Amazon’s Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, and Disney’s upcoming live-action Aladdin movie.

The MPAC’s ultimate goal is to get more Muslim creatives involved in the corporate structure.

“I want to make sure that to us [MPAC's Hollywood Bureau], ultimate success is not having a Muslim TV network, but to have Muslims at the helm of a major network, studio and production company," said Obeidi. "In order to really make a difference in the narrative, we cannot afford to be burning daylight by preaching to the choir. Muslims, like all other members of vulnerable communities, need to be in decision-making roles at major mainstream TV networks, studios and production companies, as well as showrunners and executive producers.”

Obeidi is hopeful that there will be a Muslim lead on a television drama and sitcom within the next few years.

Nickelodeon's new animated series Glitch Techs will feature a multiethnic cast, including a Muslim-American female character who will wear a hijab on the show. Glitch Techs writer David Anaxagoras originally created the character for another program, Amazon's Gortimer Gibbon's Life on Normal Street, but viewers never saw the character because of the show's cancellation.

When developing Glitch Techs, the co-creators recognized the need to incorporate characters reflective of the viewing audience, whether they are background characters or main characters, so “someone somewhere [can look] for themselves on television," said Milano, who co-created the show with Eric Robles. The creators consulted with the MPAC to figure out how to accurately display an authenticity, even down to little behaviors.

“Even though we’re an animated show and they are trying to catch creatures, we want small things. We want to know that a stray hair came out of that hijab, and she had to tuck it behind her ear because that’s a human moment, that’s a practical moment, from everyday life,” said Milano.

Added Al-Marayati: “Five years ago and 10 years ago, we never thought we’d actually have an audience to talk to, but now, I think we should thank Donald Trump because we’re finally having a conversation, and it’s unfortunate that it had to take that to have that conversation, but hey, beggars can’t be choosers, so we welcome this opportunity.”

Viacom Africa's Alex Okosi Speaks At The 2017 CGMS; Emphasises Public-Private Partnerships

Alex Okosi, Executive Vice-President (EVP) and Managing Director (MD) at Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) Africa and BET International placed an important call to action to Public Private Partnerships with the network’s future-focused message on the continent’s education challenges at the Children’s Global Media Summit 2017 (CGMS 2017).


Viacom’s Alex Okosi calls on collective mobilisation for an inclusive Generation U at Children’s Global Media Summit 2017

World Bank reports that while the number of children enrolled in schools in SSA Africa is growing, the region currently has 30 million children not receiving any form of schooling, in Nigeria that statistic is 11.4 million.

Speaking in step with the keynote address by Britain’s Prince William, Okosi highlighted the network’s commitment to development through “empowerful” content. He shared case studies of Nickelodeon’s education initiatives which featured financial literacy, mathematics and science for primary school kids. He also highlighted the MTV SHUGA project which together with the MTV Staying Alive Foundation has improved knowledge, attitudes and behaviours related to family planning, contraception, gender-based violence, transactional sex and HIV prevention. The series reaches 720m people via 180 channels globally.

Okosi concluded with, “The most important question I have for you today is how can we all work together to help truly create a global Generation U that is inclusive of all the children in the world?”

Curated by the BBC and held in Manchester, UK, from 5 to 7 December, CGMS 2017 focused on five themes: education, empowerment, entertainment, innovation and freedom. The Children’s Global Media Summit brings together creatives, technology innovators, policymakers, executives and thought leaders from around the globe to inform and redesign the future of media for Generation U and explore the impact that digital technology will have in children’s futures.

'SpongeBob SquarePants' out to make a splash on Broadway (Updated 12/11)

SpongeBob SquarePants, a cartoon denizen of the deep, is making his Broadway debut. CBS News' David Pogue has a preview!

SpongeBob SquarePants has been on the Nickelodeon TV Channel for 18 years and is still going strong. It tells absurdist tales of an optimistic sea sponge who lives in a pineapple under the sea, along with his saltwater pals.

But once you've made 250 TV episodes, two movies, a comic book, a video-game series, three music albums, and a theme-park ride, where do you go from there?

To the Great White Way, of course! SpongeBob SquarePants: The Broadway Musical officially opens in New York on Monday 4th December 2017, following a month of previews. But if you're imagining actors dancing around inside giant SpongeBob heads, you're mistaken.

"I thought what they were asking me to come in about was kind of a theme park show with big mascot costume heads, and so I said no," said Tina Landau, the musical's director and co-conceiver.

"And he said, 'Well, wait a minute, Steve Hillenburg, the creator of the show, comes from experimental animation, and is a marine biologist, and he's really interested in some form that is 'indie,' is what they called it."

Translation: Landau set out to find offbeat way to suggest the SpongeBob characters, without precisely reproducing them.

"We were nervous," said Landau. "I guess the biggest question we had is, what will kids think of SpongeBob? But one of my favorite comments ever was someone said to us afterwards, 'I loved it because I got to see what SpongeBob looks like in real life.'"

As it turns out, he looks a lot like newcomer Ethan Slater.

He told Pogue, "I had never tried a SpongeBob voice. I had never tried a SpongeBob laugh. So I just came into the audition, and Tina said, like, 'Great job, really like, love what you're doing. Come back in and do the voice. That's sort of important!'"

But he's got the laugh down pat now.

Slater is joined by Danny Skinner (who plays Patrick the Starfish); Lilli Cooper (who plays Sandy the Squirrel); and Gavin Lee (who plays Squidward the Octopus).

the Octopus.

"Well, first thing I'll say is, I'm really glad that I'm not in a big sponge Squidward costume, 'cause I don't know whether I would have wanted to do the job," Lee said.

So, what elements of the cartoon are present?

"I think to start, it is immediately, recognizably SpongeBob," said Slater. "From the sky flowers, to the colors, to the palette, the jokes feel like the characters that you know and love."

Skinner's character, Patrick, is kind of a dumb guy. "Oh, he's not dumb. He's just smart in a different way."

Tony Award-winner David Zinn designed the sets and costumes. He's packed the show with everything from giant Rube Goldberg-type contraptions to Squidward's four-legged costume.

A tap-dancing octopus isn't the only surprise; the songs come from a pantheon of pop stars, including Cyndi Lauper, John Legend, David Bowie and Aerosmith.

One of the musical performers is in full view of the audience during the show: percussionist Mike Dobson. He's a one-man sound effects department. He said his busiest moment in the show is the opening number, "where Spongebob comes to say hello to me. He says, 'Oh, hello, guy-making-all-the-sounds! And we do this little sequence that he goes crazy with."

"Did you go to school for that?" Pogue asked.

"Yeah. Conservatory! It's very serious stuff."

'Rocko's Modern Life' Gets New Lease On Life In December 2017 (Updated With New Interview)

Nickelodeon's Rocko's Modern Life has a new lease on life with an animated special, "Static Cling", coming next year and a comic book series debuting next week.

But there's one small catch: he's unemployed.

Ryan Ferrier and Ian McGinty chart a new chapter for the cartoon wallaby's life in BOOM! Studios' four-issue Rocko's Modern Life. 20 years after the conclusion of his original animated series, Rocko has nowhere to go but up - and Ferrier and McGinty talked with Newsarama about how that's going to happen.


Credit: Jorge Monlongo (BOOM! Studios)

Newsarama: Ryan, what’s Rocko up to in this new series?

Ryan Ferrier: Life, that’s what! When we reconnect with our favorite wallaby in the first issue, you’ll see that our boy is still swimming upstream. He still lives at home with Spunky, and his employment is anything but stable. As such, Rocko is feeling more of a sense of urgency in his position in life, from professionally to romantically. More than ever, Rocko wants to become the wallaby he was meant to be, despite not fully knowing what that means yet.

Nrama: Ian, what got you to sign on for Rocko’s Modern Life?



Credit: Ian McGinty (BOOM! Studios)

Ian McGinty: I mean, a chance to add my name to the amazing roster of writers, artists, and designers that have worked on, what I think, was one of the smartest animated kids’ series ever created definitely had my attention, especially considering Rocko’s Modern Life was originally intended to be a comic and it is one of my absolute favorite animated series. Yeah, that was definitely the biggest thing that got me to get on this. I must say, though, the opportunity to collaborate with Ryan is also up there, as well as colorist Fred Stresing (whom I’ve worked with for years), and letterer Jim Campbell’s work is fantastic. All in all, how could I resist?

Nrama: How would you describe the story?


Credit: Ian McGinty (BOOM! Studios)

McGinty: Insane. I mean, really, it’s insane. The first issue alone is unlike anything I’ve ever seen in a comic based on an animated series, especially one whose popularity has only gone up and up since the ’90s. I’ve stretched every single aspect of my art to make the action and scenes as fun to look at as possible, and I think the comic accurately reflects that unique charm Rocko’s had that appealed to both kids and adults. But yes, insane.

Nrama: The show was called Rocko’s Modern Life but it’s been over 20 years since it came out. Are there any efforts by you to modernize this at all, visually, aesthetically, or otherwise?


Credit: Ian McGinty (BOOM! Studios)

Ferrier: The show was such a wonderfully sharp-witted look at life during its time, and that’s something that still drives our story. We’ve certainly brought the modern era into the fold while keeping everything familiar and relatable. Social media and certain technologies are a big part of the story, and, undeniably, elements of our characters’ lives. More importantly, how people interact with each other socially, and what it means for these characters to be, for better or worse, adults in the modern era, and the challenges they face, is the kind of fodder we’ve been looking forward to working with. This series certainly will not feel dated, nor will it lean at all on nostalgia, apart from being true to the citizens of O-Town themselves.

Nrama: So, Rocko’s here - who else can fans expect to show up?


Credit: Ian McGinty (BOOM! Studios)

Ferrier: The whole dang gang is up for grabs, which we’re incredibly excited about. Rocko’s main crew of pals - Spunky, Heffer, and Filburt - play significant roles in the story, as do the Ed and Bev Bighead. We’re definitely going to be bringing in the fan favorites, from Peaches to Squirmy and Bloaty. We’re also excited to welcome some all-new folks into the mix. The first issue sees one such character in Chalmers the sloth, who was too much fun to create. We’re really confident that fans of the show are going to be more than pleased.

Nrama: Oddly, this comic book series is taking Rocko full circle since Joe Murray originally envisioned this all as a comic book before the cartoon. How deep did you dive in terms of research for this project?

Ferrier: My first order of business was to consume the show, and I fell in love all over again. It was really profound watching it at my age now versus when I was younger. If anything, I connected to it more, having my own life experiences under my belt. Along with getting that familiarity back, I think it’s been really important to connect with the characters and their lives on a personal level. A property like this demands a genuine personal touch, so there is definitely a lot of “us” in the new comic.

Nrama: It’s odd talking continuity with something like Rocko’s Modern Life, but I have to ask - where does this fit in with the animated series?


Credit: Ian McGinty (BOOM! Studios)

Ferrier: We’re absolutely treating it like the years have passed and we’re seeing O-Town in 2017. We’re also keeping a close eye on continuity, so I’d say it’s certainly in canon. There may be a couple superfluous leniencies here and there, but we’re not reinventing anything important to the characters or stories that have come before. The fact that some time has passed since the show makes it a little merciful in terms of continuity, but that’s also part of the challenge and the appeal of going back to O-Town.

Nrama: Ian, I’ve learned that during your work on this, you applied for - and were hired - for Nickelodeon Animation. Pretty surreal as you’re working on a licensed comic based on one of their shows. Can you explain how that happened?

McGinty: Absolutely. I was recently asked if I’d be interested in working on a new Invader Zim television special during a week at PixelATL (highly recommend), a festival in Cuernavaca, Mexico celebrating comics, animation, and video games. I met Jenny Goldberg, art director on the project, and Jhonen Vasquez, the creator. I’ve known Jhonen for a couple of years after I did some work for that comic book adaptation, and Invader Zim is another of my top favorite shows, so I freaked out, moved to Los Angeles, and here I am, typing this from my cubicle at Nickelodeon. Funny enough, I’m actually a stone’s throw away from the Rocko’s Modern Life production team, and I’m hoping they read the comic and like what Ryan, me, and the team are doing. It’s basically a dream come true to work during the day on Invader Zim and then go home and work on Rocko’s Modern Life. Definitely surreal.

Nrama: Since you’re there right this moment, can you pop over and ask about working on that too?

McGinty: I’d ask them right now but everyone is out to lunch. I’m planning to give everybody over there a copy of the comic, though, so who knows!

Nrama: Ok, maybe later…

Big picture, what are your goals here with this comic book?

McGinty: I want to make people laugh for both the new and the nostalgic. I think we’ve made something really special here, thanks to a wallaby, a cow, and a turtle (and a dog, and two cane toads, and a family of wolves, and twin lizards, and a milk-spewing monster with an udder for a head... oh, and two parasites). Please enjoy the comic.

Ferrier: From day one, the goal with this new Rocko’s series is to have heart and be funny. We’re not interested in making a story with nothing to say about modern life, and while that can be heavy at times, all the parts are there to be super comedic. I want people to enjoy these new adventures and feel like they connected with it on a personal level.

Rocko’s Modern Life #1 will be released at Kind of a Lot O' Comics stores - and your local comic book store - on Wednesday, December 6th. Be sure to pick up a copy, it's sure to be a hoot!

JOBURG – Play Africa and Spin Master hosts South Africa’s first Toy Movement and will donate toys to 44 000 children around the country.


Mark Segal from Spin Master and Gretchen Wilson-Prangley, the CEO of Play Africa, excitedly await the launch of the Toy Movement.

Play Africa and Spin Master, a global toy company, hosted South Africa’s first Toy Movement to provide thousands of disadvantaged children with toys.

The event, which was hosted at Constitution Hill on Friday 1st December 2017, saw hundreds of children from four different schools gathering to enjoy a morning of play and entertainment.

Gretchen Wilson-Prangley, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Play Africa, a non-profit organisation which encourages children to express themselves through play, said that the partnership between Spin Master and Play Africa was a perfect fit. Spin Master was looking to sponsor a toy movement in South Africa and Play Africa works with children to ensure their right to play.

Through Spin Master’s global Toy Movement campaign, the organisations will give thousands of toys to disadvantaged children around the country.

“Many South African children lack toys and other learning tools that can help stimulate a range of child-initiated, open-ended play activities which bolster cognitive, physical, social and emotional development,” said Wilson-Prangley, adding "In order to honour children and their right to play, we need to respond to neuroscience research that consistently proves the importance of play and stimulation in children’s healthy development and make provisions for play in every child’s daily life.”.

The launch of the Toy Movement campaign had support from Just Fun (Pty) Ltd Toys, Nickelodeon South Africa (SA), Ty Inc, which manufactures plush toys, and Value Logistics. About 300 children from local schools, including Parktown Public School and Nkosi’s Haven, which helps care for mothers and children with HIV/Aids, were present.

The children received toys, meals and enjoyed live entertainment from the characters from Nickelodeon's hit series Paw Patrol. A further 44,000 toys will be distributed to hospitals, orphanages, schools and community centre’s across the country during the holiday season.

Mark Segal, Spin Master’s Executive Vice President (EVP) of Finance and the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) said, “Spin Master’s vision is to make life more fun, and based on our position in the toy industry we feel it’s our responsibility to help children in need.

“The Toy Movement has the goal of bringing inspiration and the opportunity to learn, grow and play to children living in challenging situations and that’s what we hope to inspire. Many of us have roots in South Africa, so this is a particularly gratifying initiative.”

Children will receive the toys through partner organisations, including 73 schools and crèches, five hospitals, seven orphanages, and dozens of NGOs, including Afrika Tikkun, The Ernie Els Centre For Autism, South Africa, Ikageng Itireleng and Smart Start.

Children are full citizens under South Africa’s Constitution, but South Africa faces enormous challenges when it comes to providing the children with safe play areas and early learning tools, such as toys.

According to UNICEF, only 29 per cent of South African children have access to safe, child-appropriate play areas in their communities. Unequal distribution of safe play areas and toys erode children’s right to play.

This, according to Gretchen Wilson-Prangley, CEO of Play Africa, a non-profit, social enterprise organisation championing inclusive public learning for the country’s most vulnerable.

With this in mind, Play Africa has partnered with leading international children’s entertainment corporation, Spin Master Corp, and through its global Toy Movement campaign, the organisations will give thousands of toys to disadvantaged children in the country.

Toy Movement has completed missions all over the world, including in Mexico, Israel, Jordan and Turkey and 2017 mark its first year in South Africa.
