September Poll Results

So the Nickelodeon characters were the solid winners of the NPN September Poll. Upon hearing that both the Nickelodeon and Hanna Barbera licenses were not being renewed for the former Paramount Parks I had to wonder, was Cedar Fair making a wise move?

And thus I asked you guys which was better for the parks, Nick and Scooby, or Snoopy? And you answered... with 62% of the vote going to Sponge Bob, Dora, Scooby, and the gang.

While the Peanuts characters certainly do have a timeless charm to them, one has to wonder why the chain decided to let the super relevant Nickelodeon characters go from the park. Licensing fees? Low merchandise revenues? Honest belief that Snoopy will be more popular?

Anyway you cut it, that famous Beagle will be taking up residence at the former Paramount Parks starting this Spring. I can't wait to see photos of all the changes.
