What would you think if Nick’s owner Viacom would someday think of creating a division for Nickelodeon that they would own various intellectual property catalogs and character brands and the licensing rights for various third-party properties just like how DreamWorks Animation has their company that did the same thing which is called DreamWorks Classics? Although I know you doubt it.
If that happens at some point, here’s my fan-made list of catalogs, character brands and licensing rights that Nick would acquire for their library based on my thoughts.
The Berenstains catalog (The Berenstain Bears)
Richard Scarry catalog
Dr. Seuss catalog
Maurice Sendak catalog (Where the Wild Things Are, etc.)
Howdy Doody brand
Alvin and the Chipmunks brand
Babar the Elephant brand
Licensing rights for David Hand’s Animaland series
Licensing rights for Ub Iwerks’ ComiColor Cartoons series
Licensing rights for Hamtaro animated TV series
Licensing rights for WGN-TV’s classic children’s program catalog (Bozo the Clown, Garfield Goose and Friends, etc.), under license from WGN-TV
Licensing rights for Osamu Tezuka catalogs (Astro Boy, Kimba the White Lion, etc.)
Licensing rights for The Beano
