Nickelodeon Sets ‘Rock Paper Scissors’ Series Launch

New show, developed from the first short in Nick’s Intergalactic Shorts Program ever picked up for series, will debut February 12, 2024; it follows best friend and roommate trio Rock, Paper and Scissors, who compete over everything in hilarious and wildly absurd ways; watch the short first on Xmas day.

Nickelodeon's new animated show Rock, Paper and Scissors, developed from the first short in Nickelodeon’s Intergalactic Shorts Program ever picked up for series, has set its premiere for Monday, February 12, 2024, at 5:30 p.m. (ET/PT). New episodes will continue to air weekdays at 5:30 p.m. (ET/PT) and internationally later in the month.

The show follows best friend and roommate trio Rock, Paper, and Scissors, who lovingly compete over everything in hilarious and wildly absurd ways. In Season 1, the trio goes to extremes playing hide-and-seek around the world, running from the birthday police, defending the world from an alien invasion, and going head-to-head with the Rat Bros.

Rock, Paper, and Scissors stars Ron Funches (TrollsTrolls Band Together) as Rock, the member of the trio with the biggest heart and moral compass; Thomas Lennon (Zoey 10217 AgainReno 911!) as Paper, a wannabe intellectual who dreams of being a famous inventor; and Carlos Alazraqui (Rocko’s Modern LifeReno 911!) as Scissors, who acts overly confident and always wants to be cool. The series also stars Melissa Villaseñor (Saturday Night Live) as Pencil, the trio’s incredibly smart neighbor down the hall, and Eddie Pepitone (The Muppets, Old School) as Lou, the angry landlord, who is also a garbage can.

Ahead of the series launch, viewers can catch an exclusive look at the Rock Paper Scissors Intergalactic Short, “TV Time,” during the Nickelodeon NFL Nickmas Game on Christmas day, Monday, December 25 at 1:00 p.m. PT / 4:00 p.m. ET on Nickelodeon, where the trio go from fighting over what to watch on TV to being the stars of a successful Broadway musical.

The short launched in 2019 as part of Nickelodeon’s Intergalactic Shorts Program. Produced by Nickelodeon Animation, the original Rock Paper Scissors short and series are created, written, and executive produced by Kyle Stegina (Robot Chicken) and Josh Lehrman (Robot Chicken), with Conrad Vernon (Sausage Party) and Bob Boyle (The Fairly OddParents) serving as executive producers. Nickelodeon Animation’s Kari Kim, VP of Animation Development, and Daniel Wineman, VP of Original Animation Development, oversee the series development, in addition to the executive in charge, Jason Oliveri.
