We talk cartoons all the time on the Nickelodeon Animation Podcast. Hosted by Hector Navarro, the podcast gives voice to creators and talent from inside and outside of Nickelodeon.


The Loud House sisters  

We're getting LOUD on the final podcast of season one! Hector is joined by the seven actresses who play the ten sisters on the new hit cartoon THE LOUD HOUSE: Grey Griffin, Lara Jill Miller, Jessica DiCicco, Cristina Pucelli, Nika Futterman, Liliana Mumy and Catherine Taber. It's a Loud lovefest as Hector finds out what it's like to be one of Lincoln's sisters, who went to law school, who was on Family Feud in high school, who’s a champion poker player and so much more.

Scott Schultz & Christian Jacobs  

Yo Gabba Gabba! was the first punk rock preschool show ever. When their radical series idea was rejected at every pitch, creators Scott Schultz and Christian Jacobs did a very punk rock thing and made the pilot themselves! Soon, kids and families worldwide were busting out their Dancey Dance moves! Scott and Christian talk with Hector about their DIY journey, their love of weird midnight movies, The Aquabats! Super Show!, and that damn arcade game at 7-Eleven that took all their quarters.

Lauren Faust  

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic creator Lauren Faust hated the My Little Pony TV show as a kid. Why can't girl cartoons be badass too?

John Davis  

Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius creator John Davis claims that even though he was once a boy, he was never a genius. Fans of Jimmy, Planet Sheen and the movie Ant Bully will certainly disagree.

Jorge R. Gutierrez  

It was the mighty Popeye who taught EL TIGRE: THE ADVENTURES OF MANNY RIVERA creator, Jorge R. Gutierrez that "If you fight people bigger than you, for something greater than you, you can win the girl of your dreams!"

Jennifer Yuh Nelson  

When a young Jennifer Yuh Nelson (director of KUNG-FU PANDA 2 and 3) watched her mother draw it was like watching magic! She saw her future in that talent and has risen to the top of the animation world..

Jhonen Vasquez  

Legendary creator, artist and writer Jhonen Vasquez discusses his journey from a disgruntled video store clerk, to his breakthrough gig as a comic book artist, to the fateful day that Invader Zim became his "hideously immortal baby" on TV.

COMIC CON 2016  

The podcast has a backstage pass at this year's San Diego Comic Con where Nickelodeon celebrates 90's Nick shows plus 25 amazing years of animation.

Craig Bartlett  

Craig Bartlett's legendary career in cartoons includes three of the most iconic kid shows ever: Pee Wee's Playhouse, Rugrats, and his very own, universally adored Hey Arnold!

Andy Richter  

You know Andy Richter as Conan O'Brien's sidekick, but to us, he's one of the top dog's when it comes to giving voice to hilarious cartoon characters.

Butch Hartman  

Butch Hartman has been making The Fairly OddParents for 15 years. Hector gets Butch to share the secrets of his success, like the fact that Butch knows every cartoon joke in history because he was born in 1850 and cloned.

Tom Kenny  

Tom grew up loving two things: punk rock and comedy. He pursued both until he voiced Heffer the cow in Rocko's Modern Life. Then he gave life to a sponge in squarepants, and the world of cartoons has never been the same.

Jim Jinkins  

If it happened to Doug Funnie in a cartoon, there's a good chance that it happened to Doug creator Jim Jinkins in real life. No cartoon in Nick history is drawn more from the life of its creator than Doug.

C.H. Greenblatt  

Chowder and Harvey Beaks creator C.H. Greenblatt talks cartoons, cooking, steampunk, stalking Spongebob creator Steve Hillenburg, and still finds the time to summon the voice of Billy and Mandy's Fred Fredburger.

Maria Bamford  

Hector shares the mic with the legendary comedian, cartoon voice actor, Lady Dynamite star, and former Nickelodeon receptionist. Unfortunately the receptionist job didn't end well for Maria, but like every low in her life, she finds the funny in it.

Kevin Eastman  

Kevin Eastman co-created Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Enough said. Seriously. If you love cartoons like we do, what more do you need to know to listen to this episode?

Arlene Klasky  

When Arlene Klasky formed her animation company with Gabor Csupo, they dreamed that one day they would produce a cartoon. Their first cartoon was a little show called The Simpsons. Dreams come true? Check.

Billy West  

Hector tries to convince Billy West that Billy is the greatest cartoon voice-over actor ever, and not a sad untied shoe. Joining Billy in the booth are Doug Funny, Roger Klotz, Ren, Stimpy, Elmer Fudd, Philip J. Fry, and Billy's seven-year-old self.

Chris Savino  

Life changed forever for Chris Savino when Ren & Stimpy creator John Kricfalusi made him an artist on the legendary series. So began a career that included gigs on Rocko's Modern Life, Dexter's Lab, Powerpuff Girls, and now his series The Loud House.

Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko  

Bryan likes to talk. A lot. Not Mike. Luckily for the rest of us, they both like to make cartoons in the exact same way. Hector talks to the geniuses and best friends behind two of the most awesome cartoons in TV history.
