Tooned In is an American game show that premiered on Nickelodeon on February 8, 2021.
In Tooned In, an animated A.I. robot named Nicky (voiced by Vallury) hosts a game show where kid contestants compete in a battle of Nickelodeon cartoon knowledge for the chance to be named the night's big winner and take home exciting prizes. Each episode features three kids who must solve animation questions across slime-filled rounds of trivia until only one contestant is left in the competition. The final kid will then be declared the episode's big winner and move on to a special prize round to compete against Nicky and climb the robot's motherboard for a chance to win the $1,000 grand prize.
The game is divided into two rounds; in the first round, questions are asked on the buzzers and are worth 10 points each, with 10 points deducted for a wrong answer. After each question, the players who failed to answer correctly are slimed. The last question of the round is "The Impossible Question" where the three contestants are shown a picture or video with a certain number of objects and have to secretly enter a guess as to how many there are. Whoever is the closest, either high or low, receives 20 points.
In round two, questions are worth 20 points, up or down. One game that almost always appears in round two is "Cartoon Cosplay" in which a man called "the Nicktoon Nickgoon" dresses up as a Nicktoon character and asks questions usually related to the character. The main game ends with a speed round called "All The Answers" where Nicky asks 10 questions while 12 possible answers are revealed on a monitor to his left. In the case of a tiebreaker, one more question is asked. Correct answers are worth +/-25 points with the winner moving on to the bonus round.
Climb or Slime
The contestant has 60 seconds to answer 5 dual-choice questions, one on each level of the game board. The first correct answer is worth $100, while later correct answers increase by $50. When the contestant answers a question correctly, they move up to the next level on the board, going to one of the shows connected by a line. For every incorrect answer, the contestant has the option to either "Slime Reset" (being slimed, but being allowed to remain with the same show) and continue or move onto another show on the same level. The final category is chosen by the contestant before the round begins; as it is the only category on the top level, an incorrect answer automatically results in a "Slime Reset." If the contestant completes the game in 60 seconds, they win the $1,000 grand prize. If they fail to finish in time, they leave with the total amount won at that point, e.g., four correct answers earn the contestant $700 ($100+$150+$200+$250).
