Kappa Mikey Complete



Each episode follows a specific formula. A typical episode starts with the cast filming a LilyMu segment, but the take is ruined, sometimes revealing the conflict that the characters deal with through the rest of the episode, with a minor subplot running beneath the main plot. After the problem is resolved, the LilyMu segment will be shot again and successfully completed the second time, often rewritten to incorporate whatever lesson was learned during the main story.




Kappa Mikey Complete



The show's title is a play on the word kappamaki, a type of sushi. It is suggested that the show was the inspiration for naming the title character "Mikey" and used the prefix "kappa". Like Mikey, who is a "fish out of water" in Japan, the kappa itself is a water demon creature who can live on land. The kappas first appeared on this show in the episode "Mikey, Kappa" on August 5, 2007, where the origin of the title was explained. Coincidentally, Mikey also shares his name with the actor who supplies his voice.


In September 2001, Sunbow Entertainment signed a co-production deal with Rumpus Toys to produce the series. Sunbow's parent company TV-Loonland AG would hold worldwide and home video distribution rights.[6] In May 2002, the project was picked up by Noggin for its teen-oriented programming block The N.[1] Noggin/The N signed a co-development deal for the series,[2] while Animation Collective retained the series' copyright and took over distribution rights from TV-Loonland. The show was retooled to appeal to a slightly younger demographic than MTV's main 18-34 year old audience. For unknown reasons, Sunbow later pulled out of the deal, and by the time animation was completed, The N had shifted more to live-action shows, and Kappa Mikey was moved to the younger-skewing Nicktoons Network, where the series was tweaked even further in order to be aimed at younger children. Voice talents were usually local, and its audio was recorded at Manhattan-based NYAV Post, which Michael Sinterniklaas owns. Larry Schwarz, along with the other executive producers, oversaw all phases of production, but only had writing credits on the pilot episode, "Mikey Impossible" and "A Christmas Mikey". All the episodes were directed by Sergei Aniskov. The instrumental score was composed by John Angier, who also wrote the lyrics to "The Recycling Song", "Ori and Yori's Hits", "Living With Mikey", "How Did We Get Here?" and the songs from "The Karaoke Episode".
