Fanboy and his wide-eyed sidekick Chum Chum are endlessly energetic "super fans" of all-things sci-fi and fantasy.

Random! Cartoons was our fourth big idea cartoon showcase, and our second for Nickelodeon. Originally begun as Oh Yeah! Cartoons, Season 4, it was renamed by Nickelodeon executive Margie Cohn, after the Nick legal team raised some arcane objections. 
Do I have to tell you that Random! spun off three amazing cartoon series? All developed and produced by Eric Homan and Kevin Kolde. 
The logo was designed by Michael Lapinski and inspired by Darron Moore in a contest we ran in 2006 that was sadly controversial.

    No Foolin’ - Second Season Gets a Date

    April 1, 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*.

Jeff is in the Voice Acting in a Television Production category for his work as the Necronomicon (up against Nika “Chum Chum” Futterman for her voice as Asajj Ventress in Clone Wars, go figure). Steve, of course, is up for a Character Design in a Television Production trophy. And, last but not least, the entire show is nominated for Best Animated Television Production for Children. Congratulations, everyone. The Annies will be handed out on February 5, 2011, at UCLA. — Eric
