|Before kangaroogirl talked about an idea for RP returning, she pushed on Nickdisk people her ideas for two Reggie-centric spinoffs for RP, even as everyone else at the board, myself included, insisted that there was no way that Nick would do this. This classic is from May 2005. Read it and weep. It's a long one...
kangaroogirl72989: In September 2004, I came up with a spin-off idea for "Rocket Power" called "Reggie" and I am writing to Klasky Csupo and Nickelodeon to have it air on September 3, 2007 at 2:30 p.m and run weekday afternoons from there.
Here is the cast (just 5 main characters right now, but there are more characters on the show)
Reggie Rocket: Shayna Fox
Eliza Merrifield: Lacey Chabert (Eliza is Reggie's new friend, because Trish and Sherry "disappeared")
Otto Rocket: Elizabeth "E.G." Daily
Maurice "Twister" Rodriguez: Nancy Cartwright
Sam Dullard: Catherine Cavadini.
Cool, huh? Let me know what you think.
Prince_Izzy: Sounds like a good idea. That is, as long as there's next to no romance like on the show now.
catwings (Mara): Nancy Cartwright? I don't know...do you want Twist to sound like Bart? Or Rufus from Kim Possible? Or, even worse, Gusty from My Little Pony? Whatever happened to having the guys have male voices? I know it works to have females doing young male roles on some shows, but I don't know if it would work for this one. Not trying to be mean, I just can't imagine Twister sounding like Bart Simpson is all.

That's a little presumptuous.
MASTERNC: As has been said before, the proposition may be wishful thinking knowing how Nick has treated the show as it is. :ohwell:
Good idea though. :thumb:
I still think if Nick wants to appeal to older audiences, it needs to do a spinoff of the gang as teenagers (my "Ocean Avenue" idea as discussed before).
kangaroogirl72989: Nancy Cartwright? I don't know...do you want Twist to sound like Bart? Or Rufus from Kim Possible? Or, even worse, Gusty from My Little Pony? Whatever happened to having the guys have male voices? I know it works to have females doing young male roles on some shows, but I don't know if it would work for this one. Not trying to be mean, I just can't imagine Twister sounding like Bart Simpson is all.
Actually, when Ulysses Cuadra did Twister's voice (before he got deep), Twist did sound like Bart Simpson, only more higher pitched.
SpiderBraids: 1. I seriously doubt you could convince Nick to create a show, much less premiere it in a specific timeslot on a specific date...
2. What's up with getting rid of Trish and Sherry?
3. What's up with replacing all the boys' voice actors with (imitates Numbuh 4) cruddy girls?
4. And where's Trent, anyway?
kangaroogirl72989: If you never try, you will never succeed. So what is the harm in trying to create a new show? Why do you always think they will say no? Why are you so negative? Why don't you start thinking positive? How do you think people become cartoonists? It is by submitting their ideas to the people who are already cartoonists.
ottoman21: Hey, I think that's a great idea! But no Joey Ashton?
nickoldlodeon: It is a great ideal
catwings (Mara): I don't have any problems with the idea, just the voice overs. I don't really think they would work for this show is all. I also like the idea of them being older, like teens. Your idea isn't bad, but there are a few things that need to be tweaked first.
I could go on, but I won't Don't take what I said too seriously, I am just voicing an opinion is all.
kangaroogirl72989: On "Reggie", the boys are 12, and Reggie and Eliza are 14.
encino: Ewwww that sound interesting. Definently something to watch.
Prince_Izzy: o_O Wait, how can the guys be 12 while Reggie is 14? She's only a year older than Otto which means that she's also a year older than Sam and Twister.
kangaroogirl72989: Okay, now this is confusing! In "New Squid on the Block" Sam told Reggie he was 9, and she said that that's how old Twist and Otto were, as well. When Sam told her he was in 6th grade, she said that they'll be in class together, so without saying, we could tell Reggie was 11 at the time.
Prince_Izzy: Well, in Otto Hangs 11, there's a part in which Reggie says she's a year older than Otto.
Knoodelhed: And the difference might not be exactly one year; maybe as long as eighteen months. :tongue:
kangaroogirl72989: Good point. Why are people so negative anyway? It's ridiculous
Mike2000: Maybe it's just that we are skeptical. After all, it took Nickelodeon several years to air the ep featuring Daniel Stark, the boy who had a cameo in the show thanks to the Make-A-Wish foundation. And that is but one example. More so, it took them years to air that ep even in a time when the show was popular; considering that its ratings have been dwindling steadily, it is simply a tad unlikely that Nickelodeon will comission any new episodes, spin offs included.
SSJ_Jup81: Okay, now this is confusing! In "New Squid on the Block" Sam told Reggie he was 9, and she said that that's how old Twist and Otto were, as well. When Sam told her he was in 6th grade, she said that they'll be in class together, so without saying, we could tell Reggie was 11 at the time.
Sam was skipped up a grade. He said that in ep 1 too, and how it was his mom's idea.
Hihey9989: Sounds cool! But 2007 is still 2 years off...
kangaroogirl72989: What are you talking about? You don't make sense!
encino: Even I would like to see that
Mike2000: Yeah... if it ever airs. Sorry to spoil the party, but one thing is to suggest Nickelodeon to make a spin off of a show, and another very different is for them to actually make it. Telling them not only what show to make, but also when and in what time slot air it, sounds a bit fantastic to me. Quoting Masternc, it is "wishful thinking".
As far as I am concerned, I will only believe this kind of rumors when I see them as official press releases, or posted on the official Nickelodeon site or the online magazine, and even then I'll be very dubious, considering how long it took them to air the newer episodes.
kangaroogirl72989: You never know. No need to be negative
956685939566: I think I've heard about this, wouldn't miss it, but '07 is pretty far off
SpiderBraids: You never know. No need to be negative
But considering how "Reggie" (AFAIK) is entirely the thought of one RP fan, I wouldn't be so positive either.
That said, it's coming up to the 1st anniversary of the first US airing of the post-wedding RP ep. Who wants to organize some sort of campaign? I have made a handout to help wannabe campaign doers find people to join the cause...
kangaroogirl72989: Don't you worry. I already thought of a few episode ideas, anyway. One is that Tito has a big brother named Tano.
Mike2000: well, good luck. I would like to see new eps, but I try to be realistic; it is very unlikely we will ever see anything new around these characters.
CDB: I believe somebody said, "wishful thinking". K-C is a animation corparation, they'll listen to fans on some subjects but as far as RP is invovled; their not gonna budge.
There have been petitons and letters, and this one..I'm sorry to say is gonna share the same fate.
Not trying to be negative, I'm just telling it how it is.
ottoman21: Well, I guess then they wouldn't listen to me then?
Mike2000: Let's say they are now focused on other projects, Aaron.
Knoodelhed: I take partial consolation in that from all appearances, RP at least got a full "D-quota" of ~65 eps. And something tells me we wouldn't have seen a few of those without the support we manifested.
Mike2000: Aloha to that, Scott! You are right; if I recall correctly, many of the latest eps were held up for a long time up there, right? (even though they aired them in Mexico months before... talk about consistent corporate policies, huh?)
ottoman21: Right, I haven't had enough.
SSJ_Jup81: Ironically, I was talking to my 11-year-old cousin today about RP. She got out of school early because of her graduating ceremony. She turned to Nicktoons and RP was on (ep 1). I then started to complain about how I'd like to see more eps, since they have a new mom now. She semi-agreed, only semi because I'm more into Rocket Power than she is now. lol
SpiderBraids: Incidentally, today is the day that one year ago, the post-wedding RP ep aired. Today would be a good day to bomb Nick and KC with letters to the effect of "I'd like to see more eps, since they have a new mom now. PS: Please don't change the way they look, they look fine the way they are." Of course, your letters should be longer than that...
Hans_Moleman: You never know. No need to be negative
Not trying to be negative, but Nick or KC doesnt pursue suggestions from anyone outside the company are automatically rejected due to intellectual property and legal issues. Most companies do this, and so does Nick and KC.
(Bumped in July...)
kangaroogirl72989: I already thought of a spin-off to "Reggie" called "The Rocket Sisters" which is about Reggie and her friend (new character Eliza), being singers. After they graduate 8th grade. "The Rocket Sisters" I will have air in 2012.
Rebecca_10: That would be so cool if this does work. I would defentilly watch it. and the other one you mentioned. They should just do spinoffs on all the KC shows just like they did with Rugrats.
Mike2000: Well, like I said, good luck. But the Star Wars formula of planning (and making) several sequels to one movie does not always work with cartoons. It is very, VERY unlikely to see a spin off of Rocket Power in 2007, and it is simply un-realistic to think the show will still be on in 2012. The whole franchise will be simply too old by then, and it won't be profitable to invest money in it. If you don't believe me, try and tell me how many cartoons from 13 years ago or so are still being produced, and you'll see what I mean. It is just a matter of costs and benefits, and Nickelodeon, like any other company operating in a free-enterprise world, needs to get profits in order to stay in business. If a show does not generate enough profits, they will simply reduce its air time or cancel it altogether, in order to replace it with something new, more profitable, and that is the fate all cartoons will face eventually.
Also, there is the matter of audience getting tired of the show. Again, how many cartoons from 13 years ago you still watch regularly? (BTW, I use that magic number because it will be the age the Rocket Power franchise will have in 2012)
Of course, I could be wrong - there are always exceptions that confirm the rules, as the saying goes. Take Rugrats, for instance. It has had a spin-off, although in it the characters are "all grown up", pun intended, and apparently there is another sequel-prequel on the way. But in this case, the general plot and layout of the show is diametrally opposite of the original: instead of being the cute adventures of a bunch of babies, it became yet another depiction of pre-teen life and challenges. It is NOT Rugrats anymore, and thus it is not named "Rugrats"
Hum... by this standard, I think the only true cartoon spin-offs I can think off would be those that remain true to the original concept. Take Scooby Doo, for example; if I recall correctly, it had several seasons when I was a kid, back in the 70s and 80s, and nowadays there is a new, modernized version of the show. And The same goes for Spiderman (there is now a computer-animated version of it, IIRC). Both shows are still based on the same premises as their predecessors, have the same characters, shown at about the same ages, and the situations they face are basically the same - the Scooby Doo gang solving bizarre misteries, Spiderman being the lonesome, shy and kinda nerdy teen - early adult suddenly turned into a misunderstood superhero.
Anyway; definitions aside, all those successful cartoons have two things in common: the sequels appeared after a blockbuster movie, which Rocket Power has never had, and they have had long, really long running seasons, fueled by extraordinarily high audience levels. If I am to judge by the reduced air time they are given to Rocket Power lately, it is evident that this show is not precisely Nickelodeon's most popular cartoon.
So, in short, unless something incredible happens and Rocket Power suddenly becomes at least as popular as, say, Rugrats or Spongebob, it is very unlikely that it will remain on the air long enough for your planned spin offs to hit the screen.
ottoman21: Well, I completely disagree with Mike, it is still a fairly popular show, and could be successful, if the right creative team is in place. That's one of the big reasons I have my site up!
Mike2000: Oh, don't get me wrong, Aaron. I would like to see more eps, and perhaps new shows derived from the original cartoon, although I would prefer them to be true to the original concept; it's only that, as you say, that big IF is in the way. And creativity aside, there is always the matter of dollars and cents. If the companies involved can't earn enough with the show to cover their production expenses and get a profit, they won't even consider making new episodes, let alone making a whole new show based on the characters.
Knoodelhed: Somewhere along the line, the ball got dropped...and on hitting the deck, it shattered. That touring live show (for example), I heard, was actually pretty good, but restricting RP to cable and satellite channels (it would do quite well in syndication imo, better than a lot of eleven-minute game/toy commercials) kept the franchise from getting the exposure it needed to make the arena play a viable venture. Just my 2 cents.
SpiderBraids: But that didn't stop the Rugrats Live Adventure from being a success. (Meanwhile, Dora has her own stage show, although since it also airs on CBS, it doesn't really count for the purposes of this post.)
Mike2000: Yeah... but Rugrats is one of the exceptions that confirm the rules. Of course there might be lots of explanations for its success, but I would risk saying that it can be explained by the originality and universal appeal of the concept. See, I don't remember ever seeing another cartoon dealing with realistic fantasies a group of realistic human babies could have; the closer contender would be Muppet Babies (yuk!), but it dealt with... well, with muppets, not human babies. Rugrats, on the other hand, shows very accurately what babies do when put together, and offers a really cute interpretation of their games and how they might see the world. And to me, this is the key to their success: I haven't met a person who doesn't go aaahh!! and ooohh!!! when he / she meets a baby. Those little tikes are simply irresistible, and a cartoon starred by babies was definitely a welcome innovation.
On the other hand, Rocket Power was / is also a very original cartoon, showing the virtues of friendship and team work, but it is based around yet another group of pre-teen kids, who happen to practice extreme sports. Now, the problem is, there are many other shows based on groups of kids of about the same age, and some of the sports the Ozone Streeters practice are not common or easy to practice by the majority of the viewers (surfing, for instance; also skiing), so the whole concept might seem a bit strange to many kids. I think that could explain some, if not many of the comments and critics the show has received over the year: the slang, the emphasis on "strange" sports, the competitiveness associated with those sports (but so alien to many sofa sportmen), and so on.
So, the fact that both shows are produced by the same studio, and owned by the same network, does not mean both will, or should, have the same level of success, because each show has a different concept.
Mike2000: Oh, and as an afterthought. I'm not sure about the U.S., but down here Rugrats has always been available on public TV - no need to hire cable to see it. Rocket Power, on the other hand...
bearbear: Over here, I think Rocket Power was only on Terrestrial in Scottish Gaelic, a language which is not widely spoken. And Nickelodeon gave up on it here a long time ago. It did come back as part of "Toonz2Nite", but quickly disappeared.
SpiderBraids: This confirms what Steve said on his site:
On BBC2 in Scotland, Rugrats have also been telecasted in Gaelic, as part of BBC Scotland's Gaelic-language children's program, Dè-a-nis? (What Now?). That series features various BBC and foreign programs, translated to Gaelic (Rocket Power is another Nicktoon that got this treatment).
You gotta wonder tho: what's Gaelic for skateboard? ollie? surfing? what have you?
bearbear: I think they just used the original words if they didn't have any. Rocket Power was a weird choice of show to dub, especially since most Gaelic speakers live in the cold Islands of Scotland!
Mike2000: Or they simply used generic words to describe the trick, instead of the names. That goes for the lingos used on the show, too.
kangaroogirl72989: I have also thought of a "Reggie" reunion where the 5 of them meet again 10 years after "Reggie". Here are the possible voices for them:
Reggie Rocket: Maureen McCormick
Eliza Merrifield: Fran Drescher
Otto Rocket: Dante Basco
Twister Rodriguez: Seth MacFarlane
Sam Dullard: Michael J. Fox
I got this idea from an episode I thought up of of "Reggie" where the gang imagines how they'll be like in the future. So the voices listed here will be the guest voices on "Reggie".
SpiderBraids: Kangaroogirl, you gotta stop thinking so far ahead. Why not just settle for new eps of the original show for now? I mean, wouldn't it be cool to have Noelani (and if it's possible, Carla) learn how to snowboard or something? They haven't done that...
Mike2000: I agree completely with you, SpiderBraids. Not only because such rumors can be misleading and raise other fans' expectations to unneccessary and unrealistic levels, but also because we should first know if the show is going to continue as we know it or not. And as long as Nickelodeon does not say otherwise oficially, we must assume we won't see any new episodes of it. Besides, who tells you cartoon viewers will like the same characters and stories 2, or 5 years from now? It's a very long shot to assume the franchise will be alive then.
kangaroogirl72989: Kangaroogirl, you gotta stop thinking so far ahead. Why not just settle for new eps of the original show for now? I mean, wouldn't it be cool to have Noelani (and if it's possible, Carla) learn how to snowboard or something? They haven't done that
FYI: I do think of episodes for "Reggie" believe it or not.
Mike2000: All right. Maybe I've been too esceptic about your spin-offs. Seeing how sure you are they are being produced and aired on Nickelodeon at a very specific date and time slot, it's obvious that you have (or pretend to have) some kind of influence over the network policies and programming, right? If so, I think all the true Rocket Power fans here, myself included, would like to know more about you and what makes you so sure that your spinoffs will be made under the terms you've bragged about. And please don't tell us that it is so because you came up with this wonderful idea and sent it to Nickelodeon, because believe me, we all know it is not that easy to get them to answer a simple e-mail commending them for their job, let alone having them contact you to produce a whole new series of eps based on an idea you sent them. And that is not mentioning the unlikeliness of they agreeing on producing and releasing the show by a specific time and at a particular time slot. With all due respect, that is simply ridiculous.
Now, if, like it's implied in your postings, you have something to say on the production of the show, we would like to know why Nickelodeon, Klasky-Csupo or Viacom haven't said a word about those spin offs on their official websites, why are you letting off that kind of "privileged" information in this, a non-official, fan-run forum, and why you are so obstinately insisting that those spinoffs will be made under your terms and conditions. If you are a member of Nickelodeon, K-C or Viacom staff, I think you are acting dishonestly and without any sense of ethics, letting off that kind of information that most likely would be confidential and the sole property of the companies involved. It would be as dishonest as if a member of the printing house in charge of producing, say, the new Harry Potter book posted in a fan site information about the plot or the characters before the book reached the stores.
Sorry if I sound a tad rude, but I must confess I don't like the way you pretend to be in charge of producing those eps. And the worst part of it is that some of my good online friends have already bought your story, and their expectations are really high about that Reggie spinoff. I would really hate to see them disappointed if they find those new eps and spinoffs are never produced. So, if you don't mind, please let us know more about you and what makes you so sure these eps will be made, or stop bragging about things that are never gonna happen.
It would have been a lot different if you had said something like, "Hey, I have a great idea for this spinoff, and I want to share it with you". Believe me, that would have been really welcomed here. I'm proud to say that this is a very closely-knit community of real Rocket Power fans, and we are always glad to welcome new members and to share stories, ideas, anecdotes, and whatnot with them. But pretending to be telling Nickelodeon how and what cartoons to produce and brag about it in a fan forum sounds a tad too immature to me.
kangaroogirl72989: Why do you have to be such a jerk? I wrote letters, and I just sent them today! You are just negative, and you do not know me, and at least I'm nice.
Mike2000: Yeah, just like I imagined.
Sorry I had to burst your bubble, but you were creating a rumor that was snowballing out of control here. Had to stop it before it created more confusion and disappointment to other people. And don't get me wrong; I do wish you the best of lucks with your letters. It would be really awesome if your ideas were made into new episodes for the cartoon. Judging from the little bits you've shared, those sound like good and promising storylines. Like you once said, one never knows. But you must agree that there is a huge difference between saying that you sent them some letters (today, yesterday, that doesn't really matter) and to say that:
...In September 2004, I came up with a spin-off idea for "Rocket Power" called "Reggie" and I am writing to Klasky Csupo and Nickelodeon to have it air on September 3, 2007 at 2:30 p.m and run weekday afternoons from there.
...I already thought of a few episode ideas...
And then you went even farther:
...I already thought of a spin-off to "Reggie" called "The Rocket Sisters" which is about Reggie and her friend (new character Eliza), being singers. After they graduate 8th grade. "The Rocket Sisters" I will have air in 2012.
Those are misleading comments that go well beyond the "wishful thinking" Masternc so subtly mentioned. Those were false rumors that were causing confusion to online friends I care for, and thus I had to set them straight.
As for being negative... well, if that's what you call people who like to keep the feet on the ground and be realistic, then yes, I am negative. But me, and several other people in this forum, have had, say, some difficult experiences communicating with Nickelodeon before, and we know for sure they are not precisely fast to answer fan e-mails, or to air all the eps of their shows, or to listen to fan petitions regarding their programming. Like I've said many times, in many different ways: they are a comercial company that bases its decisions on market variables and trends, just like any other big and successful company out there.
So, like I said, sorry I had to burst your bubble.
SpiderBraids: Why do you have to be such a jerk? I wrote letters, and I just sent them today! You are just negative, and you do not know me, and at least I'm nice.
Yeah, good on you, but let's just concentrate on getting more eps of the original show as opposed to a new spinoff centering on just one character.
Zack_Morris: Mike, I seriously doubt this person has any influence whatsoever and is leading people don't the wrong path just as you suspect. As evidenced by their -1 karma they haven't exactly been a quality member of the board. I seriously doubt anybody with connectins like this would post the way this person is.
Mike2000: I agree completely, Zack. Her postings made it seem as if she was connected somehow with the production team, or as if the continuing of the show depended on her to some extent. It's a shame that she decided to play this game; unfortunately some people I know bought the idea and are actually hoping to see her spinoffs someday. If only she had been sincere from the start, I'm sure she would have received a lot of support and encouragement from the members of this forum, myself included. Unfortunately she decided to play this game, maybe trying to get some attention, and I'm afraid she got just what she wanted.
kangaroogirl72989: THAT IS NOT TRUE! I NEVER SAID ANYTHING LIKE THAT OR PLAYING GAMES WITH ANYONE! I SAID I HAD AN IDEA AND IF SOMEONE MISINTERPRETED THAT AS FACT, I AM SORRY.
NOTE: I write in big letters when I am good and mad!
YOU ARE WRONG, MIKE2000! YOU THINK YOU ARE SUCH A KNOW-IT-ALL!
SpiderBraids: The whole "Reggie" confusion seems to partially lie on the blame of people who can't separate the ideas from the fact also. Then again, it doesn't take a know-it-all to figure out that K-C ain't doing an RP spinoff AFAIK.
But for now, how about you join our little Save RP campaign, kangaroogirl?
ottoman21: THAT IS NOT TRUE! I NEVER SAID ANYTHING LIKE THAT OR PLAYING GAMES WITH ANYONE! I SAID I HAD AN IDEA AND IF SOMEONE MISINTERPRETED THAT AS FACT, I AM SORRY.
NOTE: I write in big letters when I am good and mad!
YOU ARE WRONG, MIKE2000! YOU THINK YOU ARE SUCH A KNOW-IT-ALL!
Hey! Don't mess with my friend! He was just suggest it is a long shot, he didn't dismiss your idea. No, he doesn't know everything, but he's a nice guy, and I don't like anyone talking bad about him. So don't diss him!
Mike2000: Aaron: Don't worry, buddy; it's natural that she's mad at me. No need to start a fight.
Kangaroogirl: I'm not a know-it-all, and I don't pretend to be one. I just asked a couple of questions and expressed my opinion. Now, if you don't like being exposed, don't make misleading statements like the ones you made. I think I made my point clear enough in my last posting, so as far as I'm concerned this discussion is done.
kangaroogirl72989: I MADE NO MISLEADING STATEMENTS! AND I AM SORRY IF YOU THINK THE WORD "IDEA" MEANS "FACT". IT DOESN'T!!!
WHY DON'T YOU SHUT UP? ALSO, YOU'RE WRONG!
MASTERNC: I think this is getting out of hand. As I said before, kangaroogirl, your idea is well thought out, and many of us would probably enjoy the show. However, knowing how "closed" Nick is to communication from fans, "Reggie" has as much of a chance as my "Ocean Avenue" series idea or any other fan-submitted idea. I don't think Nick has ever created a spin-off series (let alone a new Nicktoon) based on a viewer's letter. Sadly, it is a proposal, an idea, and will probably not come to fruition.
Please do not pretend to have more authority over Nickelodeon and K-C than any of us do (unless you can scan and upload some letter or something that proves otherwise). Also, please do not write in caps: it is considered "yelling" and technically has been branded "rude" by the Internet community.
kangaroogirl72989: Sorry. But that Mike2000 dude really gets me so P.O'd (or however that's spelled). I don't have more authority. Anyway, MASTERNC, for understanding. You remind me of my mom and my sisters. Helpful and nice. (hope you're listening, Mike).
ottoman21: I don't shut up for anyone.
SSJ_Jup81: C'mon guys, let's all remain civil. It was just a simple misinterpretation.
rocketsister: Remember when you guys told me if I sent a letter to Nickelodeon about my ideas and they would send it back with no reply whatsoever? Well, it just so happens that last Friday I did get my letter back, but I got a letter back from the studio and a submission form, so that means there is hope for my cartoons being on Nick after all. So there! You guys are so totally wrong about what you say, and you know it! Nyah!
MASTERNC: They replied to your message?
Wow. All of a sudden, Nick must have added someone to answer its fan mail. The end of the world must be near.
Anyway, what does the submission form look like?
Mike2000: Heh. I agree completely, MASTERNC. It would be really cool if they are finally willing to read their fan mail.
Hum... It would be nice to know the address where you sent the letter, Rocketsister (Kangaroogirl??); might be interesting trying to get in touch with those guys again.
rocketsister: Nickelodeon Animation Studios.
Mike2000: I meant, any e-mail, or postal address? :
rocketsister: Go to Google.com and type "ADDRESS FOR NICKELODEON ANIMATION STUDIOS", and they'll give it to you
MASTERNC: OK. I see an address. It's one I don't know how many people have tried, although that address seems to be for the studio that produces non-Klasky Csupo cartoons for Nick.
Anyway, what does the submission form contain? A lot of us are curious to find out what Nick has sent.
rocketsister: You get it so nobody else steals your ideas.
Mike2000: Is this the address you sent your letters to?
Nickelodeon Animation Studios
231 W. Olive Ave.
Burbank, CA 91502
rocketsister: You Got It, Dude!
I am also having "Reggie" be a full 30 minute show. Did I mention the spinoff from "Reggie"? "The Rocket Sisters". "Reggie" will have 90 episodes. 30 eps in season 1, 30 eps in season 2 and 30 episodes in season 3. Airing from September 2007 to April 2010. Then maybe in October 2012, "The Rocket Sisters!" to 2015.
SpiderBraids: Yes, you did mention TRS, and Mike2000 kinda already shot down your first spin-off idea as very unlikely to be made... Same deal with the 2nd one.
Mike2000: *sighs* Here we go again.
I won't go through all that discusion again; I'll just say that I wish you luck with your ideas, but once again, one thing is to send Nickelodeon some letters and get a submission form from them (which, BTW, we are very curious to know what it looks like), and another very different proposition is to actually see them produced. 2015 is way too far away. So try to hold your horses a bit, and take the first step by sending your ideas to Nickelodeon using that submit form you've told us about. Remember that "a 1000 mile trip starts with the first step" (or something like that).
Save Hey Arnold! Or rather, its second movie.
Go here and/or here (preferably, both).
