Los Angeles (USA), Feb 24 (EFE) .- The babies of the series “Rugrats” will return to television in a new series that will be part of Paramount +, a “streaming” platform that will unite the classics of the historical Hollywood studio with Nickelodeon catalog.
With nine seasons and 172 episodes aired between 1991 and 2004, the original “Rugrats” series was a huge success and spawned three films: “The Rugrats Movie” (1998), “Rugrats in Paris: The Movie” ( 2000) and “Rugrats Go Wild” (2003).
The return of these characters, who in their new stage will have a three-dimensional appearance, will be one of the claims with which Paramount + will try to attract subscribers.
“‘Rugrats’ is one of the best-known cartoons in the world and we have prepared this new version with great care and pride,” said Ramsey Naito, President of Nickelodeon, during a ViacomCBS investor presentation.
SPONGEBOB AND “FRAISER” ALSO RETURN
The children’s series will not be the only format that the imminent platform will revive. There are two projects to recover “Dora the Explorer” and “The Fairly OddParents” with actors of flesh and blood, while the prequel in drawings of “SpongeBob SquarePants” is already finished and will be released on March 4 in the United States.
Under the name “Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years”, the series will tell the life of the charismatic 10-year-old sponge while spending the summer with her friends at a summer camp.
Also “Fraiser”, one of the mythical comedies of the 1990s, will return with a new version.
A NEW “STREAMING” PLATFORM
With this maneuver, the study aims to boost subscriptions to a new “streaming” service that arrives months, if not years, later than that of its immediate competitors, with HBO Max and Peacock (from NBCUniversal) being the most recent.
Paramount + opens on March 4 in the United States, Canada and Latin America, to later make its leap to the European continent.
The company will launch its major productions, such as “Mission: Impossible 7”, “Top Gun: Maverick” and “A Quiet Place 2”, directly by “streaming” 45 days after their release in theaters.
