A Christmas Treat after months of Repeats

The current plan is that we will still be showing our Christmas Special this holiday season with the rest of second season to follow in late Jan or early Feb.

Sorry for the delay with the new episodes, everyone. There are various internal reasons that caused Nick to push the launch of second season. The most important is that they really want to promote the start of new episodes which they have not been able to do this fall. So, although it's a disappointment to all you TR fans, the ads will helpfully create new fans and grow our audience base.

Stay tough and look forward to a special present from the TR crew this November.

What I don't understand is they still aired the preview to Mind Over Matter on Nick.com. Why can't they still air it tomorrow?

CoyoteLoon said...

Wow, that's a bit of a last-minute disappointment. Someone should call Nick.com's webmaster, they're still advertising the MLaaTR season premiere for tomorrow night. I won't pretend to understand the logic of months more or delays ...
But on the bright side, congratulations on your third season renewal! Renewal means more episodes. More episodes means more work. More work means more paychecks. Paychecks good!

I had noticed that there was pretty much zero publicity about the new season and I think delaying the season premiere for that reason is quite defensible. I want the show to be successful, and it can't do that if people don't know about it, so I for one think it's a good idea under these circumstances.

I will be sure to kill you all if it won't air tommorow I'll got to your studio, tear out your intestines and eat them while you watch.

R.Radna said...

That's a vile statement.

UrbanMachine said...

seriously dude...i know it's rough news, and i know you were trying to be funny, but that's no reason to be so crass.

I'm hoping this leading to a downfall like Invader Zim, just so they can hype the heck out of the next piece of trash from Klasky-Csupo...

R.Radna said...

I personally was disappointed that the plan to make Skeleton Key into a nickelodeon cartoon turned out to be vaporware. I remain hopeful that perhaps SLG will maybe do this with another network. But if it doesn't happen, it's not like it's such a big deal. It'd just be cool.

UrbanMachine said...

i thought invader zim was cancelled beacause the dude that created it also created jonny (sp?) the homicidal maniac, and nick didn't want that negative assiciation. i don't think that will be a probablem for MLAATR; Renzetti has good credit.

p.s. does anyone know when we're gonna see TR merchandise besides mugs and shirts?

Anonymous said...

Zim was cancelled because of poor ratings. I think Jenny action figures would be great. Maybe next Xmas?

R.Radna said...

This came up on a previous discussion, and my research online suggests that it's Nickelodeon's normal practice to wait a year or two after a show premieres before deciding whether to release merchandise. So if I had to guess, I'd say there will be stuff eventually, just not yet.

I actually managed to find the same newspaper article that I found before. I'll post the url since I think it's an interesting read that answers this question pretty well, cites a reliable source and is 100% relevant:

http://www.montereyherald.com/mld/montereyherald/5119584.htm

The article is summed up by this quote: "Nickelodeon waits at least a year or two before releasing merchandise, carefully monitoring whether the property has the emotional impact to produce a merchandising hit."

This information is also corroborated by a nickdisk post citing a comment by Fred Seibert (an executive producer of the show) that it would be at least one more year before merchandise was released. This post was dated 1/2004.

UrbanMachine said...

that's an interesting marketing strategy...it makes me wonder how TR is rated among the other nicktoons after the first season. i'm begining to see why season 2 was held off to allow for hypage...

R.Radna said...

It's a strategy that appears to be working. According to http://quote.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=conewsstory&refer=conews&tkr=VIA:US&sid=asM3l4RqeudY, "Nick's consumer products business [is] the world's sixth largest licensing business and the world's largest licensing business based on TV-first properties."

Do you know, your blog can generate extra income by posting Google Adsense? If you ever know about Adsense, you understand to get hundreds of dollar per month is not an easy way. One of the most important is to generate massive traffic.

Few days ago, I found a very useful software that will generate hundreds of back links to our website. Do you know why back links is so important to generate traffic?
Yes, you are right! back links will jump up your position in search engine! If your position gets higher from day to day, you'll find your traffic increase significantly as well.

That software is Blog Link Generator!

This software so powerful. You even do not need to create links directory in your site. Is that sound good? You put your link in other's website, but you never put a link back to their site?

Visit www.LinkInBlog.com now and I so confident you'll never sorry.

Help me Dude, I think I'm lost..... I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him in a car lot yesterday, which is really strange because the last time I saw him was in the supermarket. No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender". He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a San Diego cosmetic surgery doctor ,to fit into those blue suede shoes of yours. But Elvis said in the Ghetto nobody can afford a San Diego plastic surgery doctor. Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger. Then I'm gonna go round and see Michael Jackson and we're gonna watch a waaaay cool make-over show featuring some Tijuana dentists on the TV in the back of my Hummer. And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . . "You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on " Strange day or what? :-)
