    I admit that I’m making somewhat of an assumption in posting this in this forum, but considering Nickelodeon’s strong relations with DreamWorks, I think it’s safe to assume that Nickelodeon is their likely destination.

    Personally, I’m not too fond of them considering a MegaMind series before the movie even premieres, but I believe a How To Train Your Dragon series could work. I don’t believe the movie was as great as I was led to believe, but Toothless was adorable and it had a decent cast of characters to base a series around.

    I'd love a How to Train your Dragon series.
    Don't know what the heck the other series is.
    Got any info on Planet Sheen? Like when the date is?
    Thanks

    MegaMind is DreamWorks' supervillain movie that premieres this November; I can't really comment on whether it will work as a series or not until I see it, so we'll be waiting for a while to get opinions on that one. As for Planet Sheen, no. I have no contacts or sources. I simply rummage through The Google to find things that other people overlook. This information, for example, was posted by The Hollywood Reporter a few days ago but nobody posted about it.

    What a weird idea for a movie.
    Cartoon Network has or had a TV series based on Villains too.
    Compettion? Although I don't know how that show did in ratings.
    Darn, I wonder when the Planet Sheen series will get a date?
    That's a series that I've been looking forward to the most

    OK, can we please stop asking when Planet Sheen will premiere. No one has any idea right now. Once someone knows for sure (whether it’s me, Huntsman, someone on the TZ news crew, etc.) it will be posted for all to see.

    A little early to make a Megamind series, but I think the movie will be a hit. I enjoy a movie about villains reforming and see the error of their ways.

    If you're talking about League of Super Evil, it hasn't really been on for almost a year (outside of one random Sunday a few months ago where they burned off the unaired episodes). I severely doubt that Nickelodeon is planning a series of MegaMind as competition against L.O.S.E. (which, unless CN acquires the second season, likely won't be coming back to US airwaves...at least not on CN).
    What do you get when you put three friends in a recording booth once a week, screen old anime, and tell them to make sense of it?

    I loved How to Train Your Dragon, but I can't really see it as a series. It just seems like they're trying milk the movie as much as possible. I mean do they have to make a TV sereis for EVERY DreamWorks movie?
    Also, Nick 3D series has horrible animation. One of the things that made HTTYD so magical was the amazing animation, but if they make a series then they will probably ruin that.
