senior VP, GM Kyra Reppen said, "The Neopets Mini-Shows bring together Nickelodeon's
powerhouse of expertise in making content for kids and tweens with the talented
creative team at the Neopets studio. These animated shorts will bring to life
the characters and adventures that make up the virtual world of Neopia."
mini-shows capture the voice and quirky humor of Neopets, introducing the brand
to the Nickelodeon TV audience. Many of the spots will feature surprise, multiple
Mini-Shows will bring to screen different characters, from the mad scientist Lab
Ray creature in its elusive laboratory, to the Trunkard, an underwater Petpet
hoovering the ocean floor, to Sophie the Swamp Witch mixing potions in the Haunted
Woods. Neopets fans will also find hidden clues embedded in each episode that
will help them unlock puzzles and trivia questions on the Neopets site.
Mini-Shows are just one of the many new initiatives being rolled out from Neopets.
The site's interactive entertainment experience is expanding with a variety of
exciting initiatives to further engage and entertain the Neopets' global audience,

and dress their Neopets, including new clothing and accessories.
A new website layout with easier to use navigation, rich graphics, an all-new
Games Room and a home page that displays special messaging from one's Neopet.
is also bringing back the Altador Cup global gaming event throughout this month.
The annual site wide tournament brings the global community together to choose
one of sixteen teams and compete for the ultimate Yooyuball championship, a fantasy
sport loosely based on a hybrid of soccer and lacrosse. Players will earn virtual
trophies and prizes.
10.4 million unique visitors participated in last year's Altador Cup, where the
Haunted Woods team took home the trophy. The Neoboards are already buzzing in
anticipation of this year's challenge.
