When you think of animated series and cartoons, there is a good chance that Disney probably comes to mind. Disney is definitely not alone in this area as there are other alternatives, such as Nickelodeon who has been producing their own original animated content for many years on end now.
However, with the launch of Disney Plus, it seems that the competition is about to get a lot more fierce, and as such, Netflix and Nickelodeon have announced that they will be teaming up in a multi-year deal where it would see both companies produce original animated content that is based on Nickelodeon’s various franchises.
It shouldn’t be surprising that both companies are teaming up, given that as a result of Disney Plus, Disney has pulled the licensing for its various intellectual properties from various streaming services, Netflix included. This means that in a bid to remain relevant and attractive, Netflix will need to come up with more original content than ever.
It should also be noted that both Netflix and Nickelodeon have worked together before on other shows, such as Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus and Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling, so for them to resume their partnership doesn’t come as a complete surprise.
