Consisting largely of original series aimed at children, pre-teens and young teenagers, Nickelodeon’s current schedule includes animated series.

Original series hour-long episodes are advertised as movies, in this channel, though the “TV movie” versions of Nickelodeon’s original series differ from traditional television films.
In that they have shorter running times (approximately 45 minutes, as opposed to 75–100 minute run times that most television movies have), and use a traditional multi-camera setup for regular episodes (unless the program is natively shot in the single-camera setup common of films) with some on-location filming.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles Forever (which was later released by Nickelodeon Movies through Paramount for DVD release), with the Barbie and Monster High films usually aired under a brokered format in which Mattel purchases the time in order to promote the release of their films on DVD.
