Oh Yeah! Cartoons is an American animation showcase that appeared on the Nickelodeon cable channel. Oh Yeah! was an animation project guided by Fred Seibert, former Creative Director of MTV Networks and President of Hanna-Barbera. Produced by Frederator Studios, it ran as part of Nickelodeon's Nicktoons lineup, and in its second season, was hosted by Kenan Thompson of All That and Kenan & Kel fame; Then later by Josh Server, from All That, for its third season. Bill Burnett composed the show's theme music. Oh Yeah! Cartoons was distributed by Nelvana Limited outside of the United States.

In terms of sheer volume, Oh Yeah! Cartoons remains TV's biggest animation development program ever. Giving several dozen filmmakers the opportunity to create nearly 100 seven-minute cartoons, the series eventually gave birth to four dedicated half-hour spin-offs:

It has also been rumored that in 2012, Hobart, who has been featured in numerous shorts may be getting his own show called Life Of Hobart although it is yet to be confirmed or denied by Nickelodeon

Nickelodeon's Oh Yeah! half-hour featured in its first season, a total of 39 brand new seven-minute cartoons in 13 episodes, surpassing the number of new cartoons and characters on any other single network. In its full run, Oh Yeah! Cartoons featured and produced over 99 cartoons and 54 characters.

Many of the animated shorts were created by cartoonists who later became more prominent, including Bob Boyle, Thomas R. Fitzgerald, Bill Burnett, Jaime Diaz, Greg Emison, John Eng, John Fountain, Antoine Guilbaud, Butch Hartman, Larry Huber, Steve Marmel, Zac Moncrief, Ken Kessel, Alex Kirwan, Seth MacFarlane, Carlos Ramos, Rob Renzetti, C. Miles Thompson, Byron Vaughns, Pat Ventura, Vincent Waller and David Wasson. Many of the animators featured on Oh Yeah! Cartoons had worked on the What A Cartoon! Show produced by Hanna-Barbera and Cartoon Network two years earlier. The show was also created by Fred Seibert while he was president of Hanna-Barbera and had the same concept as Oh Yeah! Cartoons. When Seibert left Hanna-Barbera in 1997 and founded Frederator Studios, many of the animators that had worked on What A Cartoon! migrated with him to produce shorts for Oh Yeah! Cartoons.



  • A spin-off of the Oh Yeah! Cartoons concept with 39 original cartoon shorts was on Nickelodeon in 2008, under the name Random! Cartoons[1].
  • Two Oh Yeah! characters are also in feature development at Paramount.
  • At the end of the first season, two cartoons known as "Fathead" and "Planet Kate" were proclaimed "Nicktoons of Tomorrow" and given extended times as well as their own credits. Despite this, neither show was picked up as a series nor continued in any known form.
  • Nine of the ten Fairly OddParents shorts were later incorporated into episodes of the regular series' first season, the lone exception being "Where's the Wand?" – When shown on The Fairly OddParents, Timmy's voice is re-dubbed to have his current voice, Tara Strong, in place of his former voice, Mary Kay Bergman. The unedited versions of these shorts have recently been released on several Fairly OddParents DVDs.
  • All but two of the ChalkZone shorts were later incorporated as episodes of the regular series it spun off into. "ChalkDad" and "ChalkRain" were never featured on the show, even though some shots could be seen in the show's opening sequence. However, since the first two shorts show Rudy as two years younger than he usually appears, they were shown as flashbacks in two separate episodes.

A short on this show named Fanboy was picked up as the 2009 series, Fanboy & Chum Chum
