Nick draws up new toon orders

Cabler orders 13 segs of 'The X's,' 'Catscratch'

Nickelodeon is ramping up its animated offerings, greenlighting new series “The X’s” and “Catscratch.”

Cabler has also ordered up fresh cycles of “Danny Phantom” and “My Life as a Teenage Robot.”

Nick has ordered 13 episodes of “The X’s,” which follows the adventures of an undercover crime-fighting family, led by Mr. and Mrs. X, as they ward off evil without disturbing suburbia. Wendie Malick (“Just Shoot Me”) and Patrick Warburton (“Seinfeld”) voice the lead characters.

Carlos Ramos created the skein, which will bow next year.

Nick has also picked up 13 episodes of “Catscratch,” about the misadventures of three cats raised as children by a wealthy woman, who left them her money and mansion when she passed away. Doug TenNapel created and exec produces the series.

Wayne Knight (“Seinfeld”), Rob Paulsen (“Jimmy Neutron”) and Kevin McDonald (“The Kids in the Hall”) provide the voices.

“Danny” and “Robot” air Fridays in Nick’s toon block. Cabler has committed to 20 and 14 more episodes of each, respectively.

News comes on the heels of Nick’s pickups for live-action skeins “Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide” and “Unfabulous,” part of the channel’s Sunday night TeeNick block.
