On Tuesday morning, Netflix and Nickelodeon introduced that the businesses had signed a multi-year deal that can see extra joint tasks primarily based on each current Nickelodeon properties and model new unique IP. This partnership began making waves earlier this 12 months with the Netflix launch of Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling and Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus.
