Nickelodeon UK To Launch Brand New Channel Called NickToonsters In August 2008

From C21 Media:

Nick UK unveils new toon net

Nickelodeon UK has launched a new cartoon channel called NickToonsters, aimed at a slightly younger audience than those targeted by NickToons.

NickToonsters will target Nicktoons viewers' younger siblings aged five to seven, launching with favourites such as The Rugrats, Hey Arnold, The Wild Thornberrys, CatDog and As Told By Ginger. It will be slightly more female-skewing than NickToons.

Howard Litton, MD of Nickelodeon UK, said: "NickToonsters will feature the gentler side of animation and provide the perfect transition from Nick Jr to NickToons for five- to seven-year-olds."

"High-quality animation from all over the world is a real hallmark of Nickelodeon, and we have a wealth of exclusive content that we're constantly getting requests for. NickToonsters will provide a chance for popular cartoons like The Rugrats to shine on their own channel, both as a welcome return for existing fans and as a whole new world of friends for a brand new audience."

NickToonsters will launch on August 18 on Sky.

THESE budding TV stars were given the chance to shine when kids' channel Nickelodeon visited Glasgow.

Popular presenter Ugly Mark swapped places with viewers to let the confident youngsters perform for the cameras.

The cable channel giant is currently touring its state-of-the-art mobile studio - called a myPod - around the country.

Presenter Sy is also travelling with the roadshow, signing autographs, playing games and even helping lucky kids run through their lines.

Open to kids aged eight to 12-years-old, the myPod is designed for children, with professional cameras and recording equipment.

The presenters of tomorrow can tape messages, shout-outs and links - just like their favourite TV idols.

And all myPod footage will be shown on Nickelodeon - home of cartoon favourite Spongebob Squarepants - throughout August.

Glasgow brothers Andrew, five, and Alexander Melrose, 10, left, turned out to make the most of their chance at fame.

Rebecca Peters, 10, and big brother Alex, 11, also had a turn in front of the camera.
