Fantoons: a portmanteau of Nickelodeon Fanon and cartoons—are animated television shows that are produced by and aired on the children's television channel Nickelodeon. The idea for their original animated programming on the network began in the early 90s, (right after the creation of nicktoons), after successes with game and variety shows. Starting in 1989, profits from those programs funded the "Fantoons" project, with the first three cartoons (The Epic Animals, The Billy Show, & Random Papa Stories) airing on Saturday, May 2, 1998. This format was repeated every Saturday.
