Nickelodeon Sunday Movie Toons was a series of animated made-for-TV movies, which lasted for just one season (2002) on Nickelodeon.[1] [2]It started on October 6, 2002 and ended on December 29, 2002. Produced by DIC Entertainment, the made-for-TV films are either based on various DIC productions such as Inspector Gadget, Sabrina: The Animated Series, and Dennis the Menace, or are loose adaptations of stories from classic literature such as Treasure Island and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. One film, Groove Squad, which was about a group of crimefighting cheerleaders, was an original story. All of these films were later released to VHS and DVD in the U.S. by MGM Home Entertainment under the DIC Movie Toons label. In 2008, Gaiam re-released the films on DVD.
