Nickelodeon's upcoming Breadwinners, from a pilot by creators Gary "Doodles" DiRaffale and Steve Borst, was picked up for 20 full-length episodes. 

DiRaffale was discovered through Nick's shorts program and teamed with writer Borst (Mad) to create a series following "two booty-shaking ducks as they operate a bread delivery service out of their awesome, jet-fueled rocket van."

Here are the first images released:

    Sounds like a lot of bitter trolls working out their jealousy. These guys got a series, you didn't. Get over it. And seriously? Are a bunch of self described artists really complaining that the only important mark of quality is the ability to render realistic portrayals of ducks? Ever hear of style, of artistic license, of POV. Seems to me these guys are animators and you all are angry in betweeners.

    Nick's answer to Cartoon Network's Regular show?

    The more I look at this, the more I think that the creators simply drew these characters in Microsoft Paint. Good God! I wonder how much Nickelodeon is funneling into this.

    How hard is it to draw a duck that looks like a duck?

    Mark, apparently any brain fart hastily scribbled on software is considered a "character design" in TV cartoons nowadays.

    I've done enough Donald Duck and Daffy Duck studies to know how to do it damn properly myself and I'm only 18 (turning 19 next month). Yes, I've done tons to the put where I've even done turnarounds of the characters.

    I do admit drawing those goddamn beaks from the front can be a challenge, but a rewarding one if you're already have a mastery of perspective and basic animation construction. I hope that makes you feel much better since I even have an adult cartoon concept that I was playing around with this concept that looks a million times better than this lame excuse of a "cartoon."

    It's meant to be a satire of the whole Bernie Madoff scandal, the 2008 financial collapse and a look at the nepotism that exists in corporate America.

    Tried to make the duck woman character/wife/smart accountant executive just as smart if not smarter than the main character who's a very small duck with a big attitude who downplays his wife's insistence of wanting to mate to put it lightly. I doubt I'd be able to see this idea come into fruition in a decade or two, but it would probably try to make a smartly written show if I ever had the chance. I won't share too much here, but you get the point.
