Cabler, ani house Klasky-Csupo ink prod'n pact

Nickelodeon Movies has inked a multiyear exclusive production deal with animation house Klasky Csupo.

The long-standing relationship between Klasky and Nick Movies, the Par-based feature film division of the powerhouse kid cabler, dates back to the 1998 toon pic “The Rugrats Movie” — a $100.4 million domestic grosser.

The shop is handling the sequel, “Rugrats in Paris,” slated for a Thanksgiving release. It’s also in pre-production on the “The Wild Thornberrys,” based on the small-screen series of the same name.

“It’s all too rare to find collaborators who share your sensibility and vision, but we have that with everyone at Nickelodeon,” enthused Klasky prexy and CEO Terry Thoren.

Klasky Csupo is also developing toon pics “Politeness Man” and “Cookie Company.” “Politeness” follows a mannerly, eloquent secret agent who practices excellent hygiene.

“Cookie Company,” based on the Random House book by Ross Venokur, concerns a mysterious company whose fortune cookies open doors to alternate universes.

“Alene Klasky and Gabor Csupo and their team have been an integral part of Nickelodeon’s success, and have built a celebrated creative legacy with ‘Rugrats,’ ” said Albie Hecht, prexy of film and entertainment for Nick.
