    Ah poop. It looks like you beat me to the punch. No matter. I'll copy and paste my thoughts here:

    The concept behind Best Baddies was neat. Dog & Squirrel was cute but also kinda meh. Slimelab was a little too dudebro-y for me to care and I'm pretty sure I've seen My Friend Pancake before (it's fine). From the looks of things, Best Baddies is the most popular with views in the double digit thousands compared to the other three which don't even come close, and for good reason. Seems like it's the short with the most potential for a full series.

    Personally, I'm interested in the short from the former Sanjay and Craig artist with the old lady in the swimsuit, as featured in the page's demo reel. The name escapes me at the moment, but that one looks entertaining.

    A new short, Planet Panic, was uploaded today.



    This one was a lot of fun. I think it's up there with Best Buddies as one of my favorite shorts overall.

    It seems my friend pancake was one of the shorts for last year's shorts programme. Maybe Nick sees potential in it. (Haven't watched it yet so don't know for myself)

    Dog & Squirrel has some pretty and smooth animation.

    Slimelab looks OK.

    My Friend Pancake looks nice. Not as good looking as Dog & Squirrel, but much prettier than Slimelab.

    Best Baddies has some really nice and fluid animation, alto I em kinda mixed on the art direction.

    Planet Panic looks amazing! So much energy in the animation and detail in the art. Best one so far.

    Creator Gene Goldstein said the link on the Nick Animated Shorts page was being funky, so he linked to an upload on the Nickelodeon Animation page instead.

    They certainly released Lazybones at the right time of the year

    It is also a HUGE improvement over Jammers

    Oh yeah! I had almost forgotten when that was announced a long while ago now. The concept art left...a lot to be desired. But they really turned it around in the final product! The art style looks much better and it was pretty funny to boot.

    Quite the humble beginning, this guy. That’s one thing that I adore about Nickelodeon. They know how to run a shorts program that lets anyone in rather than the just the artists from their most famous shows *shoots a glare at CN*

    That being said, I...kinda hope that this guy DOESN’T get his show, at least not on Nick in their current state. They may have a ballin’ shorts program, but they suck at television because of their Spongebob addiction. It sounds like Cupcakery had a lot of passion and Trevor himself has had a long, loving relationship with cartoons. I’d hate to see Nick pickup Cupcakery only to shove it to Nicktoons a few months later when it inevitably can’t pull in Spongebobian ratings out of the gate. If Nick is doing that to vets like Butch Hartman, I can’t expect them to be any nicer to a fledgling Trevor.

    That one is basically Pinkie & the Brain, and Animaniacs are already coming back on Hulu

    The Girl From Dinosaur Island was great, and maybe one the best purely original things I've seen from Nick for awhile.

    This could be a real hit for them if they handled it right...or they could can it right away because it didn't instantly reach Spongebob numbers

    That was a really cool short, I don't have much more to say than hopefully Nick does give this short a chance somewhere down the future.
