Mounty, Steed

Hello, Friends to the North. First you taunt us Americans with your publicly-funded health care system, now you get the premiere of Fanboy and Chum Chum a full four days before we do. How’s that happen? Well, it’s all part of the very first day of Nickelodeon in Canada. Read about it here. So, if you’re in Canada, set the timer on the oven for 7:00 p.m. ET, Monday night, November 2. Those of us in the U.S. must wait until Friday, November 6, at 9:00 p.m. for the big launch.

A bit of the Eric Robles story.

Creator Eric Robles and head writer/executive producer Steve Tompkins were in New York today visiting Nickelodeon HQ and spending them with the dozens of people who take up a show after it’s produced. Programmers, marketers, press and promo folks all gathered together to tell us more about what they’re doing to let America know about “Fanboy & Chum Chum.”

Anne Mullen, Nickelodeon promotion honcho, saw on the PR sheet that Eric’s story was a possible pitch to newspapers and magazines, and wondered exactly what his “story” was anyway. So, as Eric was telling them his path into the biz I started up my crappy phone video. The quality’s not too good so I’ll transcribe it below.

Eric drew his first fan drawings of Superman for friends in the first grade in a not so good neighborhood in Los Angeles. The son of Mexican immigrants, he lived in one room [Read more…]

That’s Eric and Jamie Kennedy, the voice of Kyle, above, signing posters. Boy, looking at these pictures, it’s kind of hard to believe Eric Robles would’ve come up with a character named Fanboy, huh?

Fanboy and Chum Chum Promotional Poster

Hey, are you going to Comic-Con in San Diego this week? Well, if you are, you’re nuts. And, if you’re nuts you’ll want to swing by the big Nickelodeon booth (#4113) at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday to schmooze with Mr Eric Robles, the famous creator of Fanboy and Chum Chum. If you’re real nice, he’ll even sign one of these exclusive posters, above, for you (image not to size!).The poster was roughed out by Eric and rendered by the Nick CG department before Chad Woods colored it and added the effects.

Fanboy Screening Invitation

If you worked at Nick you could’ve been here for this. But at least you get to see Eric and Chad’s terrific invitation. (The screening was jam-packed and went well, thanks for asking.)
