If you were a Looney Tunes lover, then odds are you remember a little old Oscar-winning film called Who Framed Roger Rabbit? The 1988 flick opened our eyes to a world in which cartoons and humans could actually interact, and probably gave a lot of young boys (and girls) an unhealthy crush on a little character named Jessica Rabbit.
Seriously though, the movie had cameos from the likes of Porky Pig, Mickey Mouse, Betty Boop, the Seven Dwarfs and many, many more. In fact, we still credit the movie for being able to give us the likes of Space Jam eight years later.
But now there’s something new on the horizon, and we’re seriously pumped. As in, here comes our childhood roaring back at us in the biggest, shiniest way possible. Because this new movie is kind of like Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, except it tugs at our nostalgic heartstrings even more.
Introducing NickToons, an upcoming movie that brings some of our favourite Nickelodeon characters to the big screen in an awesome new way. We’re talking Doug, CatDog, Rugrats, Ren & Stimpy, The Angry Beavers, Rocko’s Modern Life and more. From what we’re hearing, anything that’s been a part of the studio’s library of characters from the past 25 years is on the table.
And we. can’t. wait.
Could Tommy Pickles just adopt Catdog? Or what if Clarissa Explains it All to Hey Arnold!? What would happen if Angelica Pickles stole Ren and Stimpy’s cookies? The possibilities really seem endless at this point.
Of course, this film was just announced and it hasn’t even been written just yet, so when it will come out is still a bit of a mystery at this point. But we do know that if it does well at the box office, this could be the first of many more glorious films like this to come.
Obviously, we’re pretty down with that.
