“‘Rock Paper Scissors’ started as an idea in Nickelodeon’s Intergalactic Shorts Program and quickly formed into a hilarious buddy comedy about the big and small hijinks of roommates Rock, Paper and Scissors, and the colorful characters in their world,” said Kari Kim, vice president of animation development for Nickelodeon. “At its core, the original animated series is about the power and joy of friendship.”

The series, which aired its first short as part of Annecy Intl. Animation Film Festival in June, has been nominated for an Annie Award for Best Writing, will debut on Nickelodeon Feb. 12, at 5:30 p.m. ET/PT. New episodes be rolled out weekdays at 5:30 p.m. ET/PT.

The upcoming series follows three roommates and friends: the sweet and morally sound Rock, played by Ron Funches (“Trolls,” “Trolls Band Together”); the wannabe intellectual and inventor Paper, played by Thomas Lennon (“Zoey 102,” “Reno 911”); and the overly confident and cool Scissors, played by Carlos Alazraqui (“Rocko’s Modern Life,” “Reno 911!”). Melissa Villaseñor (“Saturday Night Live”) also stars as Pencil, the trio’s smart neighbor from down the hall, and Eddie Pepitone (“The Muppets,” “Old School”) stars as their angry garbage can landlord, Lou.
