Raybeats its only a movie - The Dead Rock Stars Club - The 1980s

Linda Simensky , then in charge of animation development in Nickelodeon, described the Nicktoons lineup and concept to Murray. He originally felt skepticism towards the concept of creating a Nicktoon as he disliked television cartoons. Simensky told him that Nicktoons differed from other cartoons. He then told her that he believed that My Dog Zero would not work as a cartoon. He then researched Nickelodeon at the library and found that Nickelodeon's "attitude was different than regular TV". [2] The cable network providers were "making their own rules": for example, Murray stated that he "didn't write for children", which the executives were fine with. [6] Murray was unsure at first, but was inspired by independent animation around him, such as Animation Celebration and MTV 's Liquid Television , and gave the network a shot. [6] At the time, Nickelodeon was selling itself as a network based as much around edge as around kids' entertainment. It aimed to appeal to college students and parents as much as children. [7]
