WHERE'S JENNY?!?!? THQ and Nickelodeon have released a PlayStation2 game called "Nicktoons Movin' " which features characters from SpongeBob, Fairly Odd Parents, Jimmy Neutron, Rocket Power, and Danny Phantom. BUT NO JENNY!!! What the heck?!? Danny Phantom? We've been around a LOT longer than that neophyte ghostbuster has. And Rocket Power? Is that even still on the air??? I demand a recount!!! I'm out of order? You're out of order! This whole courtroom's out of order!!!! Let the letter-writing campaign commence!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

While there is no commercially available PC or console game based on the show, there are the three flash games at nick.com, which are, I believe, word search, hangman, and "techno tennis." So there are some MLaaTR games out there. As for why Jenny apparently isn't in this particular game, it's hard to figure out without even knowing what kind of game it is. So all I can say is, I don't have enough information to even guess.

Kevin said...

Well, this stinks! Even though there are MLAATR games at nick.com, there should be a MLAATR game, or at least have a game with Jenny, for PS2, GCN, and Xbox. Although I kind of notice that the show, MLAATR, has different deisigns than the other nick shows.

TV's Kyle said...

Yeah, why IS that? The show has the best video game possibilities of the Nick lineup, yet isn't mentioned when I see a new Nick games announcement (such as this one: http://forums.toonzone.net/showthread.php?t=125001 ) I'm dyin' for a 2D Jenny GBA side-scroller! It could be mediocre and I'd be happy!

R.Radna said...

It could be a game is in the works or planned, and is just not ready yet. I think that considering the history of licensed videogames based on television or movies, a tie-in to a successful movie or show has been shown not to be enough for the game to succeed; the game has to be a good game also.

This was shown by the not altogether bad, but undeniably flawed, Atari VCS game based on the movie "E.T." Atari ended up spending something like $20 million or more for the rights, and legend has it that a huge amount of the unsellable cartridges ended up as desert landfill. Quality matters, and certainly the show would be poorly served by a flawed or mediocre game. I think someone else mentioned the same thing earlier.

Another issue may be the same one that's behind the reason Season 2 has been delayed, perhaps the show hasn't been well-publicized enough to justify releasing mercandise yet, including a game.

TV's Kyle said...

If you look at the link I posted, there's at least one game being developed on a show that isn't even on yet. Video game news travels fast. I'm willing to bet that if there was a game in the works, we'd know by now.

KerryJ said...

Hmm... interesting. Danny Phantom's in a game already? Man...

I'm not sure if I'd ever notice if a MLaaTR game came out. I have no video game systems at all.

UGH! THAT MAKES ME SO (censored) POed! Haved you talked to nick studios by the way, yet?

OH MAN THATS NOT FAIR! ok what i'm about to say here is my opinon, please don't get mad or scream at me in any way hehe *ahem* thats not fair at all! how did rocket power manage to get on when its like....not on the air anymore! danny phantom made it? HA! it came out AFTER MLAATR came out making it still a newbie in a way! i admit i like FoP but enough! i've had it seeing Cosmo and Wanda! they lost their comedy self and its as if they ran out of the thing that got me to love it ands it the way that it just flowed like randam but now its like, one of those things like their forced to do it which made it boring to watch. Jimmy Neutron i can understand cause he first came out as a movie and then into a tv show but its just plain bleh and now.....the one thing thats probably on most of our nerves: Spongebob, the annoying yellow blob, its bad enough that he dominated every single freaking store and that hes on EVERY merchendise and has a new movie coming out oh and might i add that nick wasn't able to show season 2 but WAS able to show a freaking new episode of spongebob?! he comes out all tall and mighty while MLAATR sits there waiting! ok i'm done now hehe

Hey,'ey lets not bash Rocket Power please! But Jenny should be in before that ghost kid. And people say its like Spiderman... Please! Anyways since THQ is doing this & WWE Smackdown vs. Raw, they should make a Nicktoon wrestling game... LOL

i liked RP i admit it but you know what would be better? nick making a super smash bro. melee type of game you can be any of the nicktoon characters and beat up the others! that would be awesome! lol

R.Radna said...

The big question people have been talking about here and on other forums is why is Danny Phantom in the game considering it's a newer show than My Life as a Teenage Robot. Maybe they're deliberately using the game as a vehicle to promote Danny Phantom specifically; use the more established properties like Spongebob, Fairly Odd Parents and Rocket Power to get people to buy the game, then hope that playing the game will get them to like Danny Phantom also.

So Teenage Robot could be in that awkward "middle child" sort of place, not as established as a show like Fairly Odd Parents or Spongebob, but not the "new kid" Danny Phantom, that needs a popularity boost to survive because it is so new. So this could be a situation where they're making a deliberate choice to promote a newer show just because that's what they feel they need to do at the moment.

I'm sure there's some sort of marketing plan that's been devised in which all of this somehow makes sense in context, but since we're not privy to it we can really just only speculate, like I'm doing here.

I'm not complaining, as I am a GameCube gamer.

I'm still sticking with Nicktoon wrestling game idea... Put Jenny on there and let her go to work.

XJ-0 said...

I'm gonna be honest. Video games based on cartoons usaully stink.

They have to be done GOOD, I mean in matters of gameplay and storyline.

Example: In a MLaaTR game, Jenny should be able to pick up power ups that enable her to use any special ability or transformation she may have.
The story should at least involve a CLuster conflict.

I already made a pic videogame based for MLaaTR, check it out. It's not perfect, but it's still a good example.

The original shot was taken from Megaman X3.

Let's see...

* Spongebob and Danny Phantom are "in" at the moment.
* Odd Parents and Jimmy Neutron are in because they're still riding the wave.
* Rocket Power's probably in because of some agreement with Nick and Klasky-Csupo.

Also important, any game would have to appeal to a broad audience to be successful. So I think there'd have to be more than one element in terms of what happened in the game for it to work.
