Nickelodeon Still Makes Cartoons?
Nickelodeon was the shit from the 80’s through to the early 2000’s. Somewhere along the line they lost their touch and basically turned into a Disney Channel clone with more tween-centric sitcoms a-la iCarly.
Enter their newest original cartoon show: Sanjay and Craig.

It’s that whole “best buds for life” type of show that we’ve all grown up with and seen blajillions of times; Ren & Stimpy, Arnold & Gerrald, Doug & Skeeter, Norbert & Dagget, Rocco & Heffer, and even newer best buds like Regular Show's Mordecai & Rigby and Adventure Time's Finn & Jake.
But what makes Sanjay and Craig a little more interesting is the people behind it. There’s Chris Hardwick, who most of you should already familiar with on some level, Maulik Panchaloy a.k.a. Sanjay from Weeds, Linda Cardellini from Freaks & Geeks, Grandma’s Boy, and she’s currently boning Don Draper on the sixth season of Mad Men, Matt Jones a.k.a. Badger from Breaking Bad, Tony Hale from Arrested Development, Kunal Nayyar a.k.a. Rajesh from Big Bang Theory, and Grey DeLisle who has voiced a buttload of characters such as Daphne in Scooby-Doo, Vicky in Fairly Odd Parents, Mandy in The Grim Adventures of BIlly & Mandy, and voices for various video games including the Tomb Raider series..
And that’s just the voice talent!
The series itself was created by Andreas Trolf, Jim Dirschberger, and Jay Howell who went from working at a cafe while making art for punk rock zines and showing his work at local galleries on the side to creating the characters for Bob’s Burgers and doing animations for Vans.
While there’s nothing about Sanjay and Craig from the clips released so far that piques my interest as much as, say, current best bro cartoon titans Regular Show and Adventure Time, it should be interesting to see how much success a kids cartoon will gain considering all the crazy talented people involved.
Sanjay and Craig debuts on Nickelodeon onMay 25, 2013 and will air Saturdays at 10:30am (ET/PT).
