    I thought DreamWorks and Netflix weren't a thing anymore.

    It's mostly because Netflix has a global reach unlike Hulu, which is only available in the States.

    Hopefully they don't throw every new TV series from DWATV to Netflix since they have the proper network to do that now, at least for new shows that aren't based on a property that they own already.

    How will Universal fix the ''DreamWorks animated series owned by Viacom'' problem?

    Well that partnership was made prior to Universal, and those three shows were produced at Nickelodeon Animation Studios. The only part they own are the DVD rights. Starting with Dragons: Riders of Berk and their Netflix deal, which came between the last show in production with Nick, Monsters vs. Aliens, DWATV started producing their own shows outright without any ownership from Viacom.

    I thought the movie was Okay, but a sequel was unnecessary.

    I think Viacom owns the shows that were made/produced for Nickelodeon.
