What happens when a rap icon and an Emmy nominated, animated TV series join together? You get a half-hour special of Nickelodeon’s highly-acclaimed TV show, “Sanjay and Craig”! Mark your calendars because on Sunday, May 17, 2015 at 7:30 PM ET / PT, a new episode of “Sanjay and Craig” will air with a very, very special guest – none other than the cartoon version of Mr. Snoop Dogg who will be known as “Street Dogg” in the episode. According to the press release, “Street Dogg is a cool, funny, friendly guy who is always eager to rhyme with the kids. He’s come to town to escape the bright lights of LA, chill out, make some new music and live a quiet suburban life.” In fact, Street Dogg even stated, “There’s too much drama in the rap game” (source: press release).
Here’s a little bit more about the highly-anticipated episode, “During the special, Sanjay and Craig discover that Street Dogg was once part of a rap duo with none other than Remington Tufflips, the boys’ action-movie idol. They set out to reunite the former pair, but their failed efforts only lead to a town divided—and the mother of all rap battles!” (source: press release)
According to the press release, “Sanjay and Craig is an original animated series that follows the misadventures of Sanjay, an excitable and irreverent 12-year-old boy (Maulik Pancholy, 30 Rock) and his best friend Craig, a smooth-talking snake and master of disguise (Chris Hardwick, The Talking Dead). Together, they embark on awesome kid-inspired quests that are at times totally ridiculous, absolutely gross and weirdly sweet. The series was created by Jim Dirschberger, Jay Howell and Andreas Trolf, and is executive produced by award-winning animation team Chris Viscardi and Will McRobb.”
