... Nickelodeon cartoon series of the ’90s are making a return in the biggest way possible.
Sources exclusively confirm to The Tracking Board that Paramount Pictures is in the early stages of developing a massive live-action/animated crossover film featuring characters from hit ’90s Nick cartoons.
Rugrats, Angry Beavers, Hey Arnold!, Rocko’s Modern Life, Ren and Stimpy, and more are coming together for what’s being pitched as a Justice League or Avenger’s-esque team-up film called NICKTOONS. ...
Paramount is currently in discussions with different writers, looking for the perfect scribe to tackle a project balancing such immensely beloved properties. ...
And the beauty of it? Viacom doesn't have to go and negotiate rights with Disney, Warners, Universal (etc.) because the conglomerate will be using characters it already controls.
The ugliness is, these live action-animated cavalcades don't always hit a home-run. Or even a double. For every Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Space Jam, there is a Cool World (Brad Pitt be damned) and Back in Action.
So we extend best wishes and Happy Box Office to our friends at Nick/Paramount/Fleischer Studios, Inc. And may the feature you're now contemplating make five times its production budget, and may the marketing of related merchandising go on until 2067.
