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.

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.
