Cartoons are a special part of everyone’s lives – whether it is during your childhood days of enjoying all of the fun, animated shows that aired on TV or even growing up and having certain cartoons still hold a special place in your heart. Needless to say, cartoons and animated shows have a great impact on the lives of many, and when they are done in a stupendous and phenomenal way, like the way that the genius Butch Hartman creates them, then those cartoons suddenly become more than just cartoons – it also becomes a way for people to escape into an imaginary world, have some laughs, watch some exciting moments, and make some unforgettable memories with characters they will always love.

A few animated shows that stand out include The Fairly OddparentsDanny Phantom, and T.U.F.F. Puppy. All of these outstanding shows are unique in their own way with sensational episodes, hilarious situations, and a whole lot of fun. These three iconic shows have another thing in common in addition to being a part of the amazing Nickelodeon animation family, they are also shows that were created by the immensely talented, prolific and consummate cartoon creator, the one and only, Butch Hartman. There are no amount of words to fully describe Butch Hartman’s brilliance – no amount of words suffice. Through all of his renowned, highly-acclaimed and fan-favorite projects, Butch Hartman has managed to put a smile on viewers’ faces every time an episode of one of his shows comes on. He has managed to make viewers laugh until their stomachs hurt (and then laugh even more after that). He has brought families together and has made bonds stronger as people join together to watch his shows. To put it in simple terms, Butch Hartman has and continues to make an everlasting impact on the lives of many through his creative spirit, his incredible art and passion for what he does, and his unrivaled talent.

Imagine life without some of your favorite animated shows. It just wouldn’t be the same. Butch Hartman is a living legend who has been and continues to be a crucial part of the Nickelodeon family these past 18 years and counting. Now, Butch Hartman is bringing out another extraordinary show on Nickelodeon titled Bunsen is a Beast, which is bound to be everyone’s new favorite animated show and is set to premiere on February 21st. Bunsen is a Beast revolves around Bunsen, the first beast to attend human school. In this remarkable show, viewers get to see the adorable and always so happy Bunsen transition to life in a human school. Whether it’s getting through picture day or eating the school lunches, Bunsen has the help of his friend Mikey right by his side to get through all of their interesting adventures. Bunsen is a Beast is one of a kind and is a terrific show for everyone of all ages to watch. It has great humor, a lot of excitement, and a ton of excellent messages such as that it’s okay to be different and the importance of friendship. As soon as you watch Bunsen is a Beast, you will find yourself smiling from ear to ear. It’s a spectacular show and we all couldn’t be anymore grateful to the exceptional Butch Hartman for sharing his talent with us all yet again through this wonderful show.

I, Alexisjoyvipaccess had the greatest, greatest honor of interviewing the phenomenal Butch Hartman at the new Nickelodeon Burbank Headquarters. Butch Hartman talked exclusively with Alexisjoyvipaccess all about the inspiration behind creating Bunsen is a Beast, what advice he would give Bunsen to help him survive his first day at school, what his favorite episode from the show is, and so much more only in our VIPAccessEXCLUSIVE interview. Butch Hartman even revealed the other show that he would like to see a cross-over episode happen with Bunsen is a Beast and he took on a fun speed round where he revealed which character he would like to swap lives with for a day and more – hear what he had to say in our VIPAccessEXCLUSIVE interview below. Thank you for the terrific interview, Butch Hartman!

Nickelodeon is known for all of its incredible shows and phenomenal content, but another one of the many things that the renowned network is known for is encouraging kids to get up and get active, whether it’s through their Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Sports award show, Worldwide Day of Play, or their highly-anticipated and exciting Super Bowl 51 celebration!

This Super Bowl 51, Nickelodeon is continuing off all of the fun with a lot of NFL-themed content and activations planned. Starting tomorrow, February 1st, Nickelodeon veteran and Game Shakers star, Kel Mitchell and the multi-talented, School of Rock star Breanna Yde will be on the ground reporting from Houston during the Super Bowl Opening Night and the NFL Experience. Breanna Yde and Kel Mitchell will get us all extra excited to see the two teams battle it out on the football field and take the title of this year’s Super Bowl winner. Will it be the Patriots or the Falcons – we will all just have to stay tuned!

In addition, there will be a special one-hour segment airing on February 5th titled the Superstar Slime Showdown at Super Bowl where some of the greatest athletes and some fan-favorite Nickelodeon stars will take on several football-themed challenges. It’s going to be awesome to see these NFL athletes and School of Rock stars take on some adrenaline-filled challenges, but what’s even greater is that the outstanding special will also help benefit PLAYWORKS, a nonprofit which helps children’s social and emotional health by encouraging physical activity in schools. PLAYWORKS is a partner of Nickelodeon’s Worldwide Day of Play. The winner of the Superstar Slime Showdown at Super Bowl will receive a $10,000 donation while the two runner-ups will receive a $5,000 donation. All three teams’ donations will help enhance recess and gym programs at three local school districts in Houston. Nickelodeon will continue to work with PLAYWORKS again during its 2017 Worldwide Day of Play tour, which will end in September, and will also feature activities from Nick’s space at the NFL Experience.

According to the press release, “The original Superstar Slime Showdown at Super Bowl special is an hour-long competition (produced by Charlie Ebersol and The Company), airing Sunday, Feb. 5, pitting teams of NFL athletes and Nickelodeon stars against one another in a series of fun and exciting football-themed challenges.  Hosted by Nick Cannon and featuring NFL athletes (Andre Johnson, LaDanian Tomlinson, DeMarcus Ware, Wes Welker and more)  and the cast of Nickelodeon’s School of Rock (Breanna Yde, Jade Pettyjohn and Ricardo Hurtado), the special will be taped at the NFL Experience.  From passing footballs while jumping on a trampoline, running drills with water-soaked footballs, to creating original victory celebration dances, the teams will compete in three challenges with the lowest-scoring team getting eliminated.  The final two teams compete head-to-head in a challenging, one-of-a-kind obstacle course to win the title of Superstar Slime Showdown Champion.”
