Status: Partially Found
Tooned In! is a lost game show pilot that was taped at Nickelodeon Studios in Orlando, Florida in 1998. It is currently unknown why it wasn't greenlit by Nickelodeon.
Description[edit | edit source]
The only known footage of Tooned In! online is in a 5-minute compilation video created by former crew members of Nickelodeon Studios for its 10 year anniversary in 2000.
Only around 5 seconds of video have surfaced, without the original audio. There is very little information about this pilot available, and whether or not Nickelodeon still has it in their possession remains unconfirmed.
Trademarks[edit | edit source]
According to Justia's Trademarks database, Nickelodeon filed in the Nickelodeon's Tooned In trademark in July 1998 and it was abandoned in May 2001 due to no statement of use.
2021 Series[edit | edit source]
Nickelodeon eventually picked up the show in 2021 and is set to air on February 8th. It's unknown if anything from the pilot (aside from a cartoon character as the host) will be used in the new series.
