Nickelodeon Started A Facebook Page To Premiere Never-Before-Seen Shorts

Nickelodeon Animation Studios in Burbank has had a very active development and digital shorts program over the last couple years, but most of what they’ve made has been unavailable to the public – until this week.

The studio quietly launched a Facebook page a few days ago where they’re sharing some recent productions. So far they’ve released four never-before-seen shorts on the page:

  • My Friend Pancake created by Rikke Asbjoern
  • Slimelab created by Nick Arciaga
  • Dog & Squirrel created by Andrea Gerstmann
  • Best Baddies created by Max Wittert

Nick also posted a sizzle reel (below) that hints at plenty of other shorts. It’s not clear how much they plan to drop onto the Facebook platform, but here’s hoping there’s more to come. Releasing content online is among the most efficient ways for entertainment conglomerates to gauge public reaction and learn what viewers actually like, not to mention cutting through the bureaucracy that often prevents the best ideas from rising to the top.

    The Best Baddies short was really refreshing to watch.I love how instead of it focusing on a girl joining a bunch of heroines, it’s a girl joining a bunch of “villains.” Also the line from one of the girl’s about her one of her badges being for harvesting organs for sale on the black market made me laugh.

    Butch Hartman has been doing the same thing this week with his Cartoon-A-Day campaign.

  • I really like the premise of best baddies, a bit different than the two buds hanging out theme of a lot of shows. looks like it could be fun!
