How timely. Just the other day I was talking with my brother about that new Pac-Man show, since we hadn't heard any follow-up news about it since the preview at E3 last year.
That's interesting news, if true. I guess Nicktoons is the most logical choice; Disney wouldn't carry a show like this, nor does a video game-based show seem like a good fit for the Hub. CN probably could've carried it, would've made a nice companion piece to Level Up.
Since Pac is a high-schooler in this series, he should technically be Pac-Boy, I guess the folks behind this figured that kids would have an easier time identifying with a juvenile protagonist.
When the preview was leaked last year, I remember a lot of people crying blasphemy over this new adaptation, but really, we're talking about a show based on an arcade game about a yellow circle who runs around a maze eating dots while being chased by Technicolor ghosts; was anybody expecting something along the lines of I, Claudius? In any event, this new show couldn't possibly be worse than that Hanna-Barbera toon from 1983.
