"We are giving the characters that kids love, the opportunity to play in
fresh new ways," said Cyma Zarghami, President, Nickelodeon Group.
"Animating Dan Schneider's incredible Henry Danger, while keeping
the voices of the current series, signals to the audience that we are
working hard to serve them on all platforms."
The Adventures of Kid Danger and Captain Man first found life as
a Nickelodeon short-form digital series, also created by Schneider,
which has been viewed more than 30 million times worldwide across
multiple platforms. While the live-action hit focuses on Henry balancing
the challenges of being a teenager with his adventures as a crime
fighter, this new full-length animated series centers on his exploits as
Kid Danger, as he embarks on brave new missions with Captain Man to
battle monsters, aliens and more. The Adventures of Kid Danger and
Captain Man is produced by Powerhouse Animation, which also produced
the short-form series.

show on all TV, was renewed last year for a fourth season (20 episodes).
New season three episodes will continue to air Saturdays at 8 p.m.
(ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.

roles, now as voice talent, on the new animated show: Jace Norman as
"Henry Hart/Kid Danger;" Cooper Barnes as "Ray/Captain Man;" Riele Downs
as "Charlotte;" Sean Ryan Fox as "Jasper;" Ella Anderson as "Piper

and the Man Cave garage, filled with crime-fighting vehicles and gadgets
used on missions. Along with appearances of fan-favorite characters from
the live-action show, new friends and foes will also be introduced.
