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*.

“Secret Shoppers” Paintover

July 20th, 2009

Here’s a paintover by Chad Woods from episode #116, “Secret Shoppers”. Chad says,

“A paintover is when you add something that’s missing in the final rendered shot that wasn’t modeled or built in cg. In this case the final rendered shot did not include the mayo and chili that Chum Chum is referring to. So, in this case I had to create assets that would fit seamlessly and be comped back into the rendered shot.”

Thanks, Chad.

First Studio Screening

May 6th, 2009

Fanboy and Chum Chum Screening

Well, we had our first in-studio screening of Fanboy and Chum Chum yesterday afternoon. The showing - limited to just the crew but, as you can see, attracted many other folks, too - featured the very first completed episode, “Dollar Day”. Mr Eric Robles gave a little speech as well as two big thumbs up for the proceedings. There’s still no premiere date set, but look for the series to hit Nick sometime in the late summer/early fall.
