Nickelodeon Animation are continuing their celebration of Women’s History Month with these storyboards by Monica Tomova from the 2000 Nickelodeon show As Told By Ginger, created by Emily Kapnek, who sums up her inspiration for the show: “Why has no one done an animated show that really looks at all of the angst of being that junior high school age [when] you’re so awkward and want to fit in but also want to stand out [and] not knowing how to do both. That was the whole motivation. Plus, just a healthy dose of reality. I didn’t feel there were a lot of cartoons that were really honest and dealt with real issues that kids were dealing with. The plan was to have Ginger clearly grappling with a lot of the milestone stuff that kids deal with, [like] the pressure to fit in, the pressure to look a certain way, shave her legs, etc.”
March is Women’s History Month. All month long, Nickelodeon is taking a look back at some of the Nickelodeon’s inspirational women behind-the-scenes and in front of the camera of your favorite Nick shows. Visit nick.com and the Nick App for more Women’s History Month videos.
