According to Variety, Nickelodeon has greenlit Amy Poehler's ("SNL") Super Scout -- revolving around an overly ambitious Honeybee (similar to a Girl Scout) -- as well as the series pilot Diggs Tailwagger, a toon from former "SpongeBob SquarePants" creative director Derek Drymon.

In Super Scout, Poehler will provide the voice of Bessie Higgenbottom, an optimistic scout obsessed with collecting badges and living out her superhero fantasies. Her single mom sings at the local bar while she drags her little brother and an eccentric group of friends on her adventures around San Francisco.

Bessie is loosely based on a character Poehler says she's been performing over the past several years at Second City and Upright Citizens Brigade.

"Bessie's a bit bossy, but with good intentions. She's based on all those girls I kind of looked up to when I was younger, the leaders," Poehler said. Comic will exec produce with "SpongeBob SquarePants" scribe Erik Wiese and former "The Fairly OddParents" writer Cynthia True. Andy Richter, wife Sarah Thyre (Strangers With Candy) and Kevin Hart (Showtime's Barbershop) are attached to voice characters in the pilot.

As for Diggs, show revolves around a low-ranking pooch trying to make good aboard the Galactic Rover.

Both projects keep Nick talent Wiese, True and Drymon inhouse -- a priority for the cabler, according to exec VP of development and original programming Marjorie Cohn.
