Nikki was a pilot for a cartoon series co-created by Deborah "Debby" Solomon (best known for her animated work on Lizzie McGuire) and Todd Kesler at Tapehouse Toons and Sea Monkey Productions. It aired on Cartoon Network in 2000 as part of the Cartoon Cartoon Fridays' "Big Pick Weekend".
The plot revolves around its title character and her friend James trying to cheer up a heartbroken girl after being dumped by her boyfriend.
Ultimately, the pilot did not win the event and was never aired on TV after the fact. However, on March 25, 2015, Deborah herself uploaded the pilot onto Vimeo for anyone to watch.
