Rintoo's Awesome Life is the second fan-made spin-off of the Nickelodeon 2007-2011 series Ni Hao, Kai-Lan. The series premiered on July 11, 2012, on Fanpop. Unlike the spin-off Kai-Lan's Royal Adventures, Rintoo's Awesome Life follows the crazy adventures of Rintoo the Tiger as he moves from the land seen on Ni Hao, Kai-Lan to the Sunshine state of Florida to live with one of his closest friend, Cory Stapivic, who is known by his online user name, Edvine. On March 19, 2013, it was announced that the show was cancelled after only one season due to production difficulties and low ratings.

About the Show

When Cory Stapivic, who goes by his online user name, Edvine2, read the first few episodes of Kai-Lan's Royal Adventures, he became astonished by the show that he decided to write a show of his own. One of his fan fiction stories, which was titled "Rintoo....MOVES OUT!", became the backdoor pilot to the show. This story showed how Rintoo moved out of the house he was living in during Ni Hao, Kai-Lan, and followed him as he traveled throughout the southern United States, trying to find his new life.

Main Characters

Cory Stapivic(Edvine, as he's known online)

Rintoo the Tiger(title character)

Recurring Characters

This changes from episode to episode, but characters like Tolee and Hoho appear in most episodes. Characters from My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic also make appearances; however, in the episode Mashing My Buttons, it was Sweetie Belle who became the first recurring MLP:FIM character on the show, with Scootaloo following right behind. However, because Sweetie Belle is staying only until Rarity comes to take her back home, her role as a recurring character is finite.
