No Foolin’ - Second Season Gets a Date

April 1st, 2011

Fanboy Frisbee Art

It seems like the last Fanboy & Chum Chum premiere we saw was back during the Civil War (it was really closer to the first Boer War). But the great news is Nickelodeon is now announcing the show’s second season of 26 half-hours will kick off with a big premiere week beginning April 25th. Each night that week we’ll get a pair of brand new eleven-minute episodes starting a 7:30 p.m., including that first night’s “Where the Boys Aren’t” and “I’m Manarctica.” WARNING: This season is even more insane than the first, so you’re going to want to lay off the sugar for the duration*.

Janitor Poopatine Expressions
An original Steve Lambe design

Three rounds of applause to Jeff Bennett, Steve Lambe, and Eric Robles and the Fanboy cast and crew for their trio of Annie Award nominations just announced. Jeff is in the Voice Acting in a Television Production category for his work as the Necronomicon (up against Nika “Chum Chum” Futterman for her voice as Asajj Ventress in Clone Wars, go figure). Steve, of course, is up for a Character Design in a Television Production trophy. And, last but not least, the entire show is nominated for Best Animated Television Production for Children. Congratulations, everyone. The Annies will be handed out on February 5, 2011, at UCLA.

The episodes “Sigmund the Sorcerer” and “Fanboy A’Hoy!” are debuting on Nickelodeon this Saturday at 10:30 a.m. The cartoons are part of a whole morning of Nick premieres including ones for SpongeBob, Penguins, Barnyard, and the Fairly OddParents. Sounds like a pretty good line-up to me.
