What ''WesternAnimation/WhatACartoonShow'' was to ''Creator/CartoonNetwork'', ''Oh Yeah! Cartoons'' was to ''Creator/{{Nickelodeon}}''. It was a showcase of cartoons from multiple fresh and up and coming animators at the time. Several of these animators got their big break here thanks to Fred Seibert, founder of Frederator Studios and creator and producer of Oh Yeah Cartoons, What A Cartoon, and the briefly produced Random Cartoons on Nicktoons Network. Of the shorts that appeared on the show only three were made into series by Nickelodeon; Butch Hartman, with his ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'', Rob Renzetti with ''WesternAnimation/MyLifeAsATeenageRobot''[[note]]The original short was called "My Neighbor was a Teenage Robot".[[/note]], and Bill Burnett and Larry Huber, with ''WesternAnimation/{{Chalkzone}}''.

A few other noteworthy animators who came out of this and were picked up by Nickelodeon and other companies fairly quickly after Oh Yeah! Include SethMacFarlane of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', and Dave Wasson of ''TimeSquad'' and Carlos Ramos of ''TheXs''. Other noteworthy creators include Mike Bell, Alex Kirwan, Tim Biskup, Pat Ventura, Steve Marmel, Zac Moncrief, and Vincent Waller, just some of the incredible talent in the animation industry that helped in the creation, writing, and directing of several highly creative, and influential animated series in the recent years since 1998.

Compare ''Random Cartoons'', a similar Nickelodeon anthology show which even got [[WesternAnimation/AdventureTime it's own]] MorePopularSpinoff (albeit on [[Creator/CartoonNetwork a different channel]]).

The pattern repeats itself until the Witch's home is nearly entirely gone.
