The Patakis was a virtual season-type project started by Nicole K. to continue the idea of The Patakis spin-off of Hey Arnold! which Nickelodeon had shown interest in, however, they deemed it "too dark" and nothing came of it. However, Craig Bartlett had done interviews and given information away on what the show would have contained which this focused on. Although the The Patakis only had four "episodes", it is one of the noteworthy ones that used the idea with both fanart and fanfiction.
