NEWS X MUSE’s Manny Gomez spoke with some of the voice cast for Nickelodeon’s new animated series, “Rock Paper Scissors” including:

Ron Funches – as Rock
Thomas Lennon – as Paper
Carlos Alazraqui – as Scissors
Melissa Villaseñor – as Pencil

It was a full virtual house where we learned about their characters. But mostly it seemed that with the amazing personalities in the room, the conversation kept going off the rails! We see that same chemistry in the series. Check out the full interview above!

“Rock Paper Scissors”, premieres Monday, February 12, 2024, at 5:30 p.m. (ET/PT)

During our conversation we talk about the inception of this series and how exactly do you pitch something like this. We also learn about how they gave Rock, Paper, and Scissors their personalities. It was a really fun conversation that you can check out above.

In Rock Paper Scissors, titular characters, Rock, Paper and Scissors, are a trio of best friends and roommates who lovingly compete over everything in hilarious but mostly wildly absurd ways. Throughout season one, the trio will go to extremes playing hide-and-seek around the world, running from the birthday police, defending the world from an alien invasion, going head-to-head with the Rat Bros and more.

Nickelodeon’s brand-new animated comedy stars Ron Funches (Trolls, Trolls Band Together) as Rock, the member of the trio with the biggest heart and moral compass; Thomas Lennon (Zoey 102, 17 Again, Reno 911!) as Paper, the wannabe intellectual who dreams of being a famous inventor; and Carlos Alazraqui (Rocko’s Modern Life, Reno 911!) as Scissors, who acts overly confident and always wants to be cool. The series also stars Melissa Villaseñor (Saturday Night Live) as Pencil, the trio’s incredibly smart neighbor down the hall and Eddie Pepitone (The Muppets, Old School) as Lou, the angry landlord, who is also a garbage can.
