Dragon Ball Z Kai, Voltron Panthera Force Set For Nickelodeon

The folks at Toonzone News are attending the "Nickelodeon Upfront" presentation in New York City this morning where they live blogged the news as to what to expect from the channels in the coming months, as multiple broadcasters are laying down their plans for spring and fall seasons. Anime fans may be surprised to see Dragon Ball Z Kai airing on the Nicktoons, but the Nickelodeon has aired other more kid-friendly shows there over the years such as Tokyo Mew Mew, Blue Dragon and even Starblazers. The channel is more known for its much younger anime programming though, material that most adult anime fans don't think of in the same way as it's aimed at Very Young Children. 

According to Toonzone News, we should expect across the various Nickelodeon channels:


  • Dragonball Z Kai will premiere in May 2010.
  • Voltron Panthera Force will premiere on Nicktoons this season.
  • Other new series were named, including Kung Fu Panda: The Series, Planet Sheen, T.U.F.F. Puppy, andBubble Guppies.
  • The popular SpongeBob SquarePants and Penguins of Madagascar will return for new seasons.
  • Glenn Martin DDS will premiere on 6/20.
  • Fanboy and Chum Chum has been picked up for a second season.
  • TMNT will debut this season, but the press kit does not state whether this is a new show, new episodes of the previous series, or a re-airing of an earlier series.

FUNimation has plans to release the first box set of Dragon Ball Z Kai on DVD and Blu-ray in May. You can find more information on recent Dragon Ball Z Kai news and releases HERE.

Didn't we already go thru this??  DragonballZ back on television and it looks like the exact same series - 0 new episodes.

Good luck with that.

 Yes its the same series, Kai just has all the filler taken out of it, so it will be a lot shorter.

What?!  No 3 episodes of powering up before the 30 second fight scene?  Maybe this will be a Dragonball series I can actually sit through without throwing my hands up in frustration.  I don't know how many episodes of Z that I fast forwarded through 90% of.

Planet Sheen??? that smells of a tv show spinn off from jimmy neutron. not sure how to take this one

Voltron and Dragonbal might be interesting to watch but not quite so sure will have to wait and see

I wish they would do more filler stuff for DBZ actually.  Some good stories waiting for me are...

The Bulma/Vegetta love story would be funny/cool.

Gohan finishing High School.

others after I think about it.
