News Roundup: Stars Lineup for 'Fairly Oddparents' TV Movie, 'All Signs of Death' Pilot Casting

by Chris Harnick, posted Jul 24th 2010 8:05AM
Drake BellNickelodeon has tapped Drake Bell, Cheryl Hines, Jason Alexander and Steven Weber to star in a live-action TV movie version of the hit cartoon 'The Fairly Oddparents.'

According to TVGuide.com, Bell will play Timmy and Hines and Alexander will be his fairy godparents, Wanda and Cosmo. Weber is set to play the villain, an oil tycoon who tries to steal Cosmo and Wanda away from Timmy. The film, 'A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up Timmy Turner!' finds an older Timmy still in the fifth grade, refusing to grow up.

"It's so much fun to see our animated characters come to life," Marjorie Cohn, president of programming at Nickelodeon, said in a statement. "And who better to bring grown up Timmy Turner to life than Drake Bell, who himself grew up on our air and still remains one of our most popular Nick stars ever."

Six New Shows Coming to Nickelodeon

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 12th 2010 3:02PM
NickelodeonI left the Nickelodeon demographic many, many (too many) years ago, but I'll admit that there are still some shows on the cable channel that I watch. They're mostly in the nighttime schedule though: some 'Fairly OddParents,' some 'SpongeBob,' maybe an episode of 'George Lopez' or 'Malcolm in the Middle' once in a while. So there aren't a lot of shows on the list of new shows coming to the channel that I'm interested in seeing (well, maybe one...)

'Victorious' sounds a lot like 'High School Musical,' as its about a teen girl who goes to an elite arts school where everyone sings and dances; 'Kung Fu Panda' is based on the movie; 'Planet Sheen' has a character from 'Jimmy Neutron' stuck on another planet; 'T.U.F.F. Puppy' is about a group of superhero dogs; and 'Bubble Guppies' (which sounds like a medical problem) is an animated show for kids set in an underwater classroom.

The only show I might be interested in is 'House of Anubis,' since it's about a group of people who go around Europe looking for clues to a mystery and sounds a little like 'National Treasure' or 'The Da Vinci Code.' It's produced in Europe.

New TV on DVD releases this week

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 1st 2009 6:02PM
Fairly OddParentsHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

I started watching The Fairly OddParents a few years ago and completely fell in love with it. I have a couple of the DVD sets, but I was never sure how the DVD sets were organized. Sometimes they're by a "theme" and sometimes they're by a season or volume. But now we have actual complete season sets for seasons one and two, and I'm really looking forward to having them. Funny, though, how no one can agree whether it's Fairly OddParents or Fairly Odd Parents. I see it spelled both ways everywhere.

I won't be buying the Highlander: The Animated Series set though., There can be only one animated set to buy this week and I'm going with OddParents.

Jack Klugman and Tony RandallHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

I know we all have our favorite shows that we buy on DVD, but I can't understand how anyone - anyone - would want to buy Gene Simmons' Family Jewels on DVD. Do buyers of these sets actually pop them into the DVD player and watch them over and over?

The Burke's Law sets continue with those annoying "Season/Volume" packages, but the last season of the Odd Couple season 5 set contains all of the episodes and completes the series.

  • Bones - Season 3
  • Burke's Law - Season 1, Vol. 2
  • Charmed - Complete Series
  • Daniel Boone - Season 6
  • Death Note - Box Set 1
  • Doctor Who - Season 4 and The Infinite Quest
  • The Dog Whisperer - Celebrity Edition
  • Fairly Oddparents - Season 6, Vol. 1
  • Gene Simmons' Family Jewels - Season 3
  • Hannah Montana - Season 1
  • Hawaii Five-O - Season 5
  • McHale's Navy - Season 4
  • Monty Python's Flying Circus - Collector's Edition Megaset
  • Mystery Science Theater 3000 - 20th Anniversary (Regular set)

Nickelodeon orders up the old and the new for 2008

by Adam Finley, posted Mar 11th 2007 3:03PM

making fiendsIt's almost hard to believe that SpongeBob SquarePants has been around for eight years, but it has. If any of you were afraid the eternally-optimistic invertebrate might be going away, don't fret: Nick has ordered up thirteen new episodes of the series for the 2008 season.

I was a big fan of SpongeBob from the very beginning (I actually have a SpongeBob mug with water in it sitting next to me at this very moment), but I'll admit I don't tune in as much as I used to. I'll still Tivo the show on occasion, though, and it still makes me laugh.

New one-hour Fairly OddParents next Friday

by Adam Finley, posted May 12th 2006 6:33PM
fairly oddparentsTimmy and his two magical godparents with the "floaty crowny things" will have a brand new one-hour special which will air on Nickelodeon on Friday, May 19 at 8 p.m. The new episode, titled "Fairy Idol," will spoof this popular reality show on FOX whose name escapes me right now. It's the one where everyone sings and people vote on them. I believe it's called Uncle Banjo's Wacky Funtime Musical Showcase, but I'm not entirely sure. Anyway, rather than a singing competition, this one is a competition to become a fairy godparent, which an evil genie named Norm tries to win after Cosmo and Wanda call it quits. Right now you can pop on over to TurboNick and catch a sneak peak of the episode.

MacFarlane and Hartman animated short

by Adam Finley, posted Apr 22nd 2006 8:33AM

seth macfarlaneThe Family Guy fans out there probably know that creator Seth MacFarlane used to work on somewhat more innocent fare like Johnny Bravo and Cow and Chicken. When I first started hearing about Family Guy I immediately thought, 'is that the same guy who worked on Johnny Bravo?' Indeed, it was. Anyway, the other night while checking Frederator's podcast archive, I found an animated short called "Zoomates." It was created by MacFarlane and Butch Hartman (The Fairly OddParents). You can tell Hartman had his hand in it based on the design of the characters alone. So, if you're bored on this lazy Saturday and want a few minutes of entertainment, click here, then scroll down to "Episode 19" to download it. Keep in mind this is the first of four animated shorts, and I make no claims about what comes after it. Although, there is a very awesome Lifesavers commercial from several years ago that follows. Here's a direct link.

Note: Apparently this aired as a segment on Oh Yeah! Cartoons earlier this year.
