Fanboy and Chum Chum is a new CG-animated comedy spin-off from the Nicktoons Network anthology series Random! Cartoons.

In every episode, Fanboy and Chum Chum, donning their tights and capes, emerge from the "Fanlair" to find comic adventure wherever they go, embarking on a daily quest to turn an average day into a fantastically fun one.
