Nickelodeon Celebrates National Day With The Debut Of A Made-In-Singapore Animated Comedy Series Sharkdog Today

Nickelodeon Asia celebrates Singapore’s National Day with the debut of the brand new series Sharkdog, Nickelodeon’s first animated short-form series from Asia, out of Singapore. Premiering on the Nickelodeon Play app today, Sharkdog is a 20 x 90-second animated series, with each episode that will be released progressively through the platform this month.

The Singaporean first-time creator is Ms Jacinth Tan, a Singaporean storyboard artist with the multi-award-winning CG animation studio, One Animation. The series is produced in collaboration with One Animation, who worked closely with both the Nickelodeon International and Asia teams.
Sharkdog is the first animated series from Asia to come out of the 2015 edition of the annual Nickelodeon’s Global Animated Shorts Programme, designed to identify and develop original comedy-driven content for kids. Besides Sharkdog, a further 21 pitches were chosen out of 850 pitches and developed into animated shorts, with the potential to air on the network, or live on the Nickelodeon Play App.
