==History With Making Fiends==
Making Fiends was originally signed up to air on Nicktoons sister channel, Nickelodeon. However, soon before it began airing, Making Fiends was swapped to air on Nicktoons last minute. However, the first episode aired without a hitch on October 4th, 2008. The series aired with no promotion or press release. At one point, it was the highest rated original program on Nicktoons. Despite positive reviews and above average ratings, the show was abruptly cancelled after airing only six episodes on November 1st, 2008. For four years, Making Fiends aired in reruns on Saturdays and Sundays at 6 AM. However, on September 3, 2012, Nicktoons stopped airing reruns of Making Fiends.
