In a fast-paced series of broadcast promos and bumpers that broke last Friday, Aardman Nathan Love has given Nickelodeon viewers a zany gift: it’s the “Winter Refresh” campaign, which features many beloved characters from Nick series, animated in a style reminiscent of some of TV’s most iconic holiday specials. 

There’s SpongeBob and Patrick from “SpongeBob SquarePants,” cavorting on a frozen pond. Patrick does a flying leap into SpongeBob’s arms, and both of them plunge through the ice. And there’s Lincoln Loud and Clyde McBride from “The Loud House,” who get tangled up in holiday lights and tumble off a roof. Also making appearances are the twins from “The Thundermans,” Phoebe and Max, along with some of the stars of the Nick series “Henry Danger.”

Popping up throughout many of these promos are a bunch of snowball characters better described as goofballs. Looking a bit like giant marshmallows and wearing knit caps and scarves, they manage to get into all forms of mischief. Each promo ends with a holiday-themed typographic representation of the Nick logo, sculpted to appear as though rendered in clay animation.
