NickSkip was an unused special feature intended for Nickelodeon DVDs. The system purported to play the program and certain bonus features automatically, similar to Disney's FastPlay. The feature was a replacement for Paramount DVD on Nickelodeon DVDs after 2004.

Logo (2009 or 2010?)

Visuals: The 2009 Nickelodeon Productions logo animation, without the "PRODUCTIONS" text or copyright info, plays. After the animation ends, a disc flies in, cutting off the "elodeon" part of the "nickelodeon" text. The remaining text moves over while the disc spins, and the word "skip" walks in. As the text comes to its final position, the disc turns orange and "ripples" along with the text. Spotlights then appear on the logo for a brief time. To conclude, the logo bows.

Technique: CGI by Kevin Powell, while the first half was done by Trollbäck+Company.

Audio: A shortened version of the 2009 Nickelodeon Productions logo music. After this, a male announcer (George DelHoyo) says "Nickelodeon designed this DVD with NickSkip technology. Your program will instantly play without delay. To exit the NickSkip experience at any time, please press the top menu button on your remote control. Enjoy!". Many sound effects are heard throughout.

Availability: Unused. The logo was going to be used on Nickelodeon DVDs in 2009 or 2010, but this idea was later scrapped (likely due to the harsh criticism FastPlay got). Luckily, the logo can be found on Kevin Powell's Vimeo account.
