Kids' Choice Awards Fanboy Crew

Remember fifty-five years ago when Fanboy and Chum Chum won the dance contest at this years Kids’ Choice Awards? Well, here’s the crew behind the win celebrating in Eric’s Nickelodeon office in Burbank this month.

In the back row, that’s creator Eric Robles, board artist/director Eddie Trigueros, art director Chad Woods, and supervising producer Jason Meier. Up front, there’s production coordinators Alan Chow and Danielle Digrado.

Thanks to Juliana Weiss-Roessler for the picture.

Congratulations on a job well done, folks.

Early Yo

A call for season one art requests yielded a couple for more character stuff. The truth is there isn’t that much beyond what we’ve posted already. The exception is with Yo, though (Cristina’s request, by the way).

“Fanboyfriend” Storyboard

SBFBCCPOM has gone and requested we post a pair of storyboards, “Fanboyfriend” and “Fanboy Ahoy.” Here’s Octavio Rodriguez’s board for the former episode, written by Itai Grunfeld. It’s episode #120.

Fanboy in Watercolor Pencil

So we’ve gone ahead and posted just about everything from Fanboy and Chum Chum’s first season - 52 eleven-minute cartoons - that we could get our hands on - or so we think. Scripts, storyboards, character and background designs, animatic clips, fan art, color scripts, etc. and so forth. What have we missed? Is there any Fanboyness you’re itching to see that we somehow forgot to blog? We’ve already got tons of stuff from season two lined up, but if you’ve got those season one requests, just holler. (For those of you keeping score, Nickelodeon has thirteen first-season shorts yet to air.)
