A bit of fringe news for all of you out there that haven't yet met Lauren Faust and managed to snag tickets for SDCC. Nickelodeon is running a panel called "She Made That?", a presentation dedicated to women in animation. Lauren will be joining big names from shows like Hey Arnold!, Ren and Stimpy, and Invader Zim. Get the exact description, time, and room for it below!
