Attention, residents of Bluffington: Nickelodeon just announced a massive, Wreck-It Ralph-type supergroup movie featuring characters from its '90s cartoons, including Rugrats, The Angry Beavers, Aaahh! Real Monsters, Ren & Stimpy, and Rocko's Modern Life. It's not quite decided how many other shows will be included in the mix, but it looks like anything is possible.

It's an overwhelming prospect. To prepare ourselves for this journey, here are ten oft-forgotten Nickelodeon cartoon characters who deserve more of our attention. »

Anyone of a certain age will have a particular fondness for the bizarre cast of characters from Nickelodeon’s NickToons line-up. It had been reported last year that Paramount were looking to bring these characters together for an Avengers/Justice League-style team-up, and now its being reported that they’ve found a director in the man behind Napoleon Dynamite and Nacho Libre.

Real Monsters and Rocko’s Modern Life. At present these are the only titles involved, but Nickelodeon could always use characters from other franchises such as Doug, Hey! Arnold, CatDog and SpongeBob Square Pants. According to Deadline, the movie is set to be Paramount’s answer to Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

Not content with creating a channel dedicated to 1990s reruns and commissioning a new Hey Arnold! TV movie, Nickelodeon has gone one step further with the nostalgia – it's announced a cinematic feature film.
This movie – going by the title Nicktoons – will include characters from Rugrats, Ren & Stimpy, Rocko’s Modern Life, Aaahh! Real Monster, and The Angry Beavers. They’ll all interact together in one big story, as opposed to a series of sketches.
Jared Hess of Napoleon Dynamite, Nacho Libre and Gentlemen Broncos has signed up to direct. He’ll work on the script, as well, with his wife and regular collaborator Jerusha Hess (she worked on all three of those films, too).

The film will apparently feature a bunch of classic Nickelodeon characters that will include Rugrats, Ren & Stimpy, Rocko’s Modern Life, Aaahh! Real Monsters, and The Angry Beavers.
