Nickelodeon has signed on for Kung Fu Panda: The Series, ordering a new CG-animated comedy based on last year's boxoffice hit, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The kids network has ordered 26 episodes of the series, Nick's second co-production with DreamWorks Animation SKG. The two companies previously partnered on The Penguins of Madagascar, which premiered March 28 on Nick and ranked as the most-watched series premiere in the network's history (6.1 million viewers). Since then, Penguins has become the second most-popular program among kids 6-11 on television, behind only SpongeBob SquarePants.
