I was riffing through some old stuff, introducing a friend’s business to the internets, and this turned up from 2001. Time flies.

A big Frederator weekend.

Eric pointed out that we’ve got a jammed packed weekend of Frederator related TV events on Nickelodeon’s networks this weekend.

The Wubb Girlz

Friday kicks off at 1pm ET on Nick Jr. (and 7pm Sunday on Noggin) with the premiere of Wubb Idol, guest starring BeyoncĂ© (yeah, who woulda thought?), the first original movie for Bob Boyle’s Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!

Wishology Weekend Poster

And Friday night, 8pm, the beginning of the Wishology event for Butch Hartman’s The Fairly Oddparents.

And that’s not all. Tomorrow at 3pm you also get (big sob, bigger tears) the absolute end of Rob Renzetti’s My Life as a Teenage Robot.

So give us some love this weekend. You’ll be glad you did.

Kirsten hits it out of the box.

As promised, here’s  Kirsten Lepore’s fun take on the Fredbot. We’ll be using this at the end of our HD shows going forward. First up? Fanboy & Chum Chum. When we went HD for Ape Escape we used a temp card, but now we’re the real deal.

I’ve always liked the end tag we’ve used for the last 12 years (!) but I’m way too impatient to have gone so long without a change. Actually, now that I think about it, we’re probably going to make a bunch of completely different ones and continue rotating them randomly. It’ll be way more fun for our viewers.

The one thing that will absolutely not change is the audio logo. Optic Nerve created it for us and they did their usual amazing job; it’s one of the most distinctive pieces of its kind. All our tags will use it as a baseline.

Thanks so much to Kirsten (and Jon Kane at Optic). Here’s hoping it’s only the first thing we do together.
