I've seen Nick's animation studio, more crowded, but the morale is okay. One of the artists said to me:
"We're doing all right, cruising along. We finish up on Fairly Odd Parents and swing over to T.U.F.F. Puppy, Butch Hartman's new show. There's thirteen episodes of it, a full season. So yeah, we're doing all right..."
Talking to other artists and directors, there are other shows on hiatus that look as if they'll be coming back, (one of them being Ni Hao, Kai Lan which I have called "Mi Hao Kai Lan" (and please accept my sincere apologies.)
Ni Hao, Kai Lan is gonna come back. The merchandise is selling real well, and they're going to be doing a third season. And Dora is going to be doing another season. Also there's some other shows in development that are going to get launched. The studio, I think, will be getting busier ..."
Nick has begun staffing for Kung Fu Panda, the Series, and artists are moving into a building further up the hill to get the series rolling.
The studio, more than most, has a lot of creative irons in the fire.
