Credited with launching the hit Nickelodeon shows The Fairly Oddparents, ChalkZone and My Life as a Teenage Robot, the toon shorts program Oh Yeah! Cartoons is back in production for a fourth season on Nickelodeon. Independent producer Frederator Studios and Nickelodeon are now calling for new submissions to be broadcast in the fall of 2006.
"We’re proud to have returned original short cartoons to prominence over the last decade," says Fred Seibert, president of Frederator Studios and exec producer of Oh Yeah! Cartoons. "Our alumni talents are the leading stars of our industry, the standard bearers of the future of animation."
Over the past three seasons, Oh Yeah! Cartoons has given several dozen filmmakers the opportunity to create nearly 100 seven-minute animated shorts. Toon talents to emerge from the program include Butch Hartman (The Fairly Oddparents, Danny Phantom), Bill Burnett and Larry Huber (ChalkZone) and Rob Renzetti (My Life as a Teenage Robot). In addition, two characters that originated with Oh Yeah! are in feature development at Paramount.
Hyped as "TV’s biggest animation development program ever," Oh Yeah! Cartoons is looking for a large selection of films seven minutes in length, created in all styles of animation. More information can be found at www.frederator.com/ohyeahseason4.php.
