Nikki was a short created by Debby Solomon and Todd Kesler and produced by Sea Monkey Productions for the Cartoon Network. The short premiered on Cartoon Cartoon Fridays on June 30, 2000 as one of ten contenders for Cartoon Network's Big Pick, the winner of which would become the next Cartoon Cartoon. The short did not win The Big Pick, and was not picked up by Cartoon Network to become a full-length series. The pilot was lost for many years, but is now found.
Nikki and James choose a person at random to follow. They watch a girl break up with her boyfriend and when he storms off leaving the girl a crying heap on the ground, Nikki decides to cheer her up. The crying girl resists all his efforts, and in the end chooses what to Nikki is the unthinkable…
