Nick Brings Two Nicktoons To Its Saturday Morning
The Planet Sheen cast includes Jeff Garcia (The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius, Back at the Barnyard) as Sheen, Bob Joles (SpongeBob SquarePants) as Mr. Nesmith, Rob Paulsen (The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius) as Doppy, Soleil Moon Frye (Punky Brewster) as Aseefa, Jeff Bennett (The Penguins of Madagascar) as Dorkus, Candi Milo (Fanboy and Chum Chum) as Princess Oom, Fred Tatasciore (Wolverine and the X-Men) as Emperor and Thomas Lennon (creator and star of Reno 911!) as Pinter. The series was created by Steve Oedekerk, creator of Nickelodeon’s hit TV and film franchises, Jimmy Neutron and Barnyard as well as Keith Alcorn (The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius) and executive produced by Oedekerk, Alcorn and Jim Hope (The George Lopez Show).
The premiere episode of Planet Sheen introduces the inhabitants of the strange and distant planet Zeenu, who are gathered together when an out of control rocketship crashes on their planet and into a house. The rocket’s hatch opens and out comes Sheen Estevez – a hyperactive, manic, eccentric, overbearing, frantic kid. The planet’s Emperor is fascinated by Sheen and thinks he is supremely intelligent and brave. However, the evil Dorkus, whose house Sheen destroyed, wants to get rid of him immediately. Sheen’s rocket is too badly damaged to fly him back to Earth, but he meets a brainy, talking chimp named Mr. Nesmith who crashed on the planet years ago and may be able to help fix his rocket.
