Nickelodeon International: ‘Scoop!’ and ‘MooseBox’

Nickelodeon International launched their Animated Shorts Program in 2012 to hunt down and feed up-and-coming animation talent into their TV series pipeline.

So which of these mini-pilots should you know about?

We suggest “Scoop!” created by The Brothers McLeod and “MooseBox” from Mike Scott – both feel fun and fresh while maintaining the manic, barely-linear irreverence that seems mandatory for kids’ comedy nowadays.
