Nicktoons Picks Up ‘Planet Sketch’ For Spring Broadcast
Nicktoons Network, Nickelodeon’s 24-hour animation network, has ordered all 26 11-minute episodes of DECODE Entertainment’s animated series Planet Sketch for launch this spring.
The series is commissioned by Canada’s Teletoon and the U.K.’s CiTV and co-produced with Aardman Animations. It is a series of shorts that features the Street Rappers, a collection of young rappers who enjoy rapping about childish things, and the Parping Ponies, two horses who struggle to hold down decent jobs “due to flatulence issues.”
The series, which recently premiered on Nickelodeon in France, has also been acquired by several other international broadcasters, including France 3, ABC Australia, Jetix Europe, Cartoon Network Asia Pacific and Cartoon Network Latin America, TV12 Singapore, Denmark’s TV2 and South Africa’s M-Net.
