Nickelodeon has a new original animated series in the works. Middlemost Post will feature a talking former rain cloud who works at a post office alongside a mailman and a magical pet walrus. This 2D-animated show has the look of The Amazing World of Gumball and other Nickelodeon shows. It was also created and co-executive produced by Spongebob SquarePants’ John Trabbic III.
Middlemost Post is a working title and could change. It’s been granted twenty episodes. Dave Johnson will serve as a co-executive producer as well as story editor. There’s no additional information, such as a release date or casting. Ramsey Naito, Executive Vice President of Nickelodeon Animation did release a statement:
“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.”
Here is the first official look, as well as the press release:
“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.”
