“When Sanjay and Craig was first brought to us and was described as being about two best friends, with one that just happens to be a snake, we knew that it had the makings of a great Nickelodeon cartoon,” said Russell Hicks, president, of content development and production for Nickelodeon “This show is connecting with kids because our creators had a great vision and they are telling stories that our audience relates to and that are just flat out funny with a lot of heart.”
