Bucket and Skinner have been best friends ever since they were in their diapers learning to surf. The beach buddies may be as different as night and day but they have 3 goals in common: stay friends forever (check!), always be near a beach (surf's up!) and never do anything that requires long pants (gnarly!). Their perfect day includes wicked waves, an epic taco and of course, meeting cute girls. But Bucket and Skinner quickly learn that avoiding a life of hard work is hard work!

Korra will have to learn Airbending from master Tenzin, son and youngest child of Aang and Katara. Korra will also have an Animal Guide who is a Polar Bear Dog called Naga. "The Last Airbender: Legend of Korra" will also be set at least seventy years after the defeat of Phoenix King Ozai and Princess Azula in the original "Avatar: The Last Airbender" series.

Nickelodeon USA is expected to premiere "The Last Airbender: Legend of Korra" in mid-2012.

"How to Rock":

"How to Rock" (originally titled "How to Rock Braces and Glasses") is an upcoming brand new Nickelodeon live action series that will star new Nickelodeon star Cymphonique Miller. The series is based on the "How to Rock Braces and Glasses" book series by Meg Haston which is printed by Alloy Entertainment. The first promo/trailer for "How to Rock" aired on Nickelodeon USA with "Merry Christmas, Drake and Josh" on Saturday December 10, 2011 and the series is scheduled to premiere on Nickelodeon USA on Saturday February 4, 2012.

"How to Rock" will centre on Kacey Simon (Cymphonique Miller), a popular girl whose status goes down after she must briefly wear braces and glasses. Ignored by the mean girls, Kacey finds a new way to express herself, through music by becoming the lead singer of the pop/hip-hop band 'Gravity 5' with Stevie (Lulu Antariksa), Zander (Max Schneider), Nelson (Noah Crawford), and Kevin (Chris O'Neal). The band's success begins a rivalry with 'The Perfs' which features her former best friends Molly (Samantha Boscarino) and Grace (Halston Sage).

"How to Rock" was officially green-lit by Nickelodeon USA on May 23, 2011 (with a 20-episode order) and began production this past summer [2011].

Nickelodeon's "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles":

The "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" are coming to Nickelodeon in 2012 in a brand new series!

Nickelodeon acquired the global rights to "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" from the Mirage Group and 4Kids Entertainment, Inc. and have announced that they are moving forward on development on a new CGI-animated TMNT television series consisting of at least 26 half-hour episodes, and which will premiere on Nickelodeon USA on Monday February 6, 2012.

A new "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" Nickelodeon Movies feature film is also expected to be released in 2012 as part of the acquisition of the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" franchise by Viacom/Nickelodeon. It was announced on May 27, 2010 that Michael Bay's 'Platinum Dunes' production company had landed the rights to the new "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" film. It is expected that Bay, Bradley Fuller and Andrew Form will serve as executive producers. TMNT will be a co-production between Paramount and Nickelodeon. However, it will be a reboot film as opposed to another sequel.

Nickelodeon released a teaser trailer for the upcoming 2012 "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" animated series. The video hints at some changes, namely the two Ninja Turtles who traditionally carried blunt weapons have had their weapons changed to similar bladed versions. Donatello uses a naginata instead of a bo, and Michelangelo uses a kusarigama instead of nunchaku.

At a Nickelodeon Upfront Conference, it was announced that actor Jason Biggs will voice Leonardo and Rob Paulsen, who voiced Raphael in the 1987 series, will now voice Donatello in the upcoming brand new series. In June 2011, it was confirmed that Sean Astin would voice Raphael and Greg Cipes would voice Michelangelo. On August 8, 2011, it was revealed that Mae Whitman will be the voice for April O'Neil. In July 2011, it was revealed that Hoon Lee will be the voice of Master Splinter. In October 2011, it was revealed that Kevin Michael Richardson will be the voice of the Shredder.

It is currently unknown whether Nickelodeon UK will change the series name to "Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles" like upon TMNT's first arrival in the United Kingdom and other countries in Europe in the 1980's, where the show name was changed to "Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles" (or TMHT, for short) as local censorship policies deemed the word ninja to have excessively violent connotations for a children's program (although in Ireland, however, the first season aired as "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" before changing to "Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles" at a later date). The theme tune lyrics were also changed, such as changing "Splinter taught them to be ninja teens" to "Splinter taught them to be fighting teens."
