RECUR, a platform for creating multi-chain NFT experiences, is bringing some of Nickelodeon’s ’90s characters into Web3 in a new way with the help of Grammy-nominated DJ and producer, Steve Aoki. RECUR has been involved in numerous NFT experiences and participated in License Global’s “WTF is an NFT” webinar last year. 

RECUR’s Nickelodeon NFT drop via Nickelodeon.xyz, beginning July 18 for whitelisted users and July 19 for the public, will feature 12 original characters from “Rugrats” and “Hey Arnold!” On July 26, fans will be able to trade in their original NFTs to collect slime which will lead to the opportunity to get mashup characters starting July 29. 

RECUR and Paramount Consumer Products have partnered with Aoki to introduce the new set of mashup characters. Aoki created a new remix that combines original theme songs from “Rugrats” and “Hey Arnold!” into a new track to reveal Nickelodeon NFT character mashups through a music video. The neon, technicolor music video offers fans a first look at the new character mashups that combine traits and names from the collection’s original characters. A mashup that’s part Tommy Pickles and part Helga Patacki equals Tolga. 

“Really grateful to be teaming up with RECUR and Paramount to bring these shows to life in the NFT space,” says Aoki. “Can’t wait to see the roadmap come to life.”
