Nickelodeon has announced a new animated TV series with the working title of Middlemost Post. What we know so far is that it has been greenlit for 20 episodes, was created by and will be co-executive produced by John Trabbic III (SpongeBob SquarePants), and Dave Johnson will also serve as co-executive producer and story editor. The premise is pretty simple too.
In Middlemost Post, Parker J. Cloud, an exuberant raincloud, lives and works in the Middlemost Post Office with Angus, a burly, rule-abiding mailman who cherishes his solitude and values efficiency, and Russell, their magical pet walrus whose stomach is so big that it doubles as a storage room. Together they journey through Mount Middlemost and the six territories of Somewhere to deliver the mail, while meeting some exceptionally quirky and peculiar people along the way. But as this loving and unconventional trio grows closer, they remain blissfully unaware that they have been brought together by one fateful stormy event.
Ramsey Naito of Nickelodeon Animation said:
Middlemost Post captures everything we look for in a new series–an imaginative and truly unique world, lovable characters who care deeply about each other and big comedic moments to drive the story. The series is created by our very own John Trabbic, with writing partner Dave Johnson, and we can’t wait to bring to life the characters and places in this artist-driven series for our global audience.
