Nickelodeon and Playmates Toys Launch its Bebop and Rocksteady

Playmates Toys announced the launch of its Bebop and Rocksteady action figures available mid-November exclusively at Walmart. The villainous duo will then make their much-anticipated return to TV this January as part of the current third season of Nickelodeon's CG-animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series. The highly detailed Bebop and Rocksteady action figures stand 5" tall, are fully articulated and uniquely sculpted to capture the personalities of this perennially popular duo. Each figure is equipped with unique accessories and is compatible with most of the vehicles and playsets in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toy line. Bebop, a pig-headed mutant, features a bright purple Mohawk, X-ray glasses and comes ready to battle with his weapon accessories. Rocksteady, a mutated rock-headed Rhino and the brains behind the duo, is ready to hunt down the Turtles with his hammer-and-sickle weapon accessories.

Nickelodeon and Paramount Television Team Up on New Live-Action, Musical Comedy Series School of Rock

Nickelodeon and Paramount Television divisions are teaming up for the first time to produce the new live-action, musical-comedy series School of Rock, based on the 2003 hit film from Paramount Pictures. Nickelodeon has ordered 13 episodes of the series, which is scheduled to begin production this fall and premiere in the spring of 2015. Casting for the series will be announced shortly. School of Rock will follow the adventures and misadventures of Dewey Finn, a down-on-his-luck rocker who poses as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school as he teaches his eccentric, unconventional and overachieving students to play and love rock 'n' roll.

Nickelodeon and Lima Sky Join Forces to Launch Global, SpongeBob SquarePants-Themed Doodle Jump App!

Nickelodeon and Lima Sky launched Doodle Jump SpongeBob SquarePants, a brand-new global mobile app inspired by the Doodle Jump app. In this 2D level-based jumper game, players take the role of SpongeBob, jumping up and through Bikini Bottom locales while trying to avoid infamous villains, including Man Ray and Dirty Bubble, swirling whirlpools, diabolical jellyfish, and more; with the ultimate goal of restoring order to the sea. Available now on iOS with Android coming soon, Doodle Jump SpongeBob marks Lima Sky's first co-brand with an animated series for their iconic Doodle Jump game. In Doodle Jump SpongeBob, the diabolical Plankton and his jailhouse crew have stolen the Krabby Patty secret formula. Players must traverse through 40 themed levels, unlocking new worlds and brand-new features as they advance in the game, encountering Bikini Bottom pals, Patrick, Sandy Cheeks, Mr. Krabs and Squidward. Throughout the game, users earn coins during play and by completing daily and weekly challenges, like Frogfish Beware, when players must defeat 10 frogfish within one week. They also use cool power-ups, such as Magnetic Personality, which gives players a magnetic charge that attracts all the coins on the screen. In Doodle Jump SpongeBob, players can purchase power-ups, including shields, vehicles and health, and costumes; and boosts including Head Start, that advances a player higher in a level using a submarine; all using coins collected during play or purchased through an iTunes account. Doodle Jump SpongeBob is available worldwide in eight languages: English, Spanish (Latam), Spanish (Spain), German, French, Dutch, Portuguese and Italian.
