Ni Hao, Kai-Lan is an American children's television series created by Karen Chau and produced at Nickelodeon Animation Studio. It premiered on Nickelodeon on February 7, 2008 in the United States, with the episode "Dragonboat Festival". The series is based on the childhood memories of the creator, Karen Chau, who grew up in a bicultural (Chinese-American) household.
The Lawsuit That Got the Show Cancelled
In 2011, the show faced a $10,000,000 lawsuit against former Dora the Explorer star Caitlin Sanchez. Around that time, Nickelodeon had announced on Facebook that the show would cancel the show at the end of the second season. The reason for the lawsuit was that the production for the show cost much more than the production on Dora. Fans thought they would either win the lawsuit and get quick cash, or Dora would get the show canceled and give out an excuse.
- The series was based on the My World short series Downward Doghouse.
- This is one of few Nick Jr. shows to lack a Christmas episode, likely because Christmas is not a holiday in China.
- Kai-Lan is the first Nick Jr. protagonist to have a Chinese background.
