Oh Yeah Cartoons! Returns to Nickelodeon; Frederator Studios Issues Call for Submissions for 4th Season
NEW YORK, NY and LOS ANGELES, CA -- 04/06/2005 -- After three highly successful seasons, with 99 original cartoons and three spin-off hit series, Oh Yeah! Cartoons returns to production for Nickelodeon, America’s highest rated cable network. Leading independent producer Frederator Studios and Nickelodeon are calling for new submissions for a fourth season to be broadcast in the fall of 2006.
Seeking storyboard pitches for comedy shorts, seven minutes in length, Oh Yeah! Cartoons is looking for a large selection of films created in any style of animation. Further details can be found at http://www.frederator.com/ohyeahseason4.php
“We’re proud to have returned original short cartoons to prominence over the last decade,” says Fred Seibert, Oh Yeah! Executive Producer, and Frederator Studios President. “Our alumni talents are the leading stars of our industry, the standard bearers of the future of animation.”
In terms of sheer volume alone, Oh Yeah! Cartoons remains TV’s biggest animation development program ever. Giving several dozen filmmakers the opportunity to create nearly 100 seven-minute cartoons, the series is credited as the birthplace of the hit Nickelodeon shows “The Fairly Oddparents” (created by Butch Hartman), “ChalkZone” (Bill Burnett & Larry Huber), and “My Life as a Teenage Robot” (Rob Renzetti). Two Oh Yeah! characters are also in feature development at Paramount.
Starting in the early ’90s as President of Hanna-Barbera Productions, Fred Seibert revitalized the animation industry by reviving the era of the talent-driven comedy short, producing 48 original cartoons. The results were the Cartoon Network’s highest rated series, including “The Powerpuff Girls” (created by Craig McCraken), “Dexter’s Laboratory” (Genndy Tartakovsky), “Johnny Bravo” (Van Partible), “Cow & Chicken” (David Feiss), “I.M.Weasel” (David Feiss), “What A Cartoon!” (Fred Seibert) and “Courage, the Cowardly Dog” (John Dilworth).
Storyboards and pitches can be submitted to:
231 West Olive Avenue
