Nicktoons picks up Planet Sketch from Aardman Animation

by Adam Finley, posted Jan 24th 2007 12:01PM

planet sketchNicktoons recently acquired Planet Sketch, an animated children's series from Decode and Aardman Animation that has already proved wildly popular outside the United States. The computer-animated series includes a cast of odd characters, including a "tough" group called "The Rappers" who secretly love playing playground games; two farting horses known as the "Parping Ponies;" and the Gnaughty Gnomes, little creatures who like to gross people out. I did a quick search on YouTube but could only find what appeared to be a clip of the German version of the series, a clip that was actually just someone taping an actual television set. Nevertheless, given Aardman's success in the past with such productions as Wallace and Gromit and Flushed Away, this could be a very cool addition to the Nicktoons line-up. The series will debut sometime this spring.

UPDATE: Clips can be found here. Many thanks to e-nick.

Planet Sketch is an awesome show, my son loves it and so do I! The Ninja Handyman and the Street Rappers are favourites here.
