10 Things to Know About Nickelodeon’s ‘Marvin, Marvin’ Star Victory Van Tuyl!

By  | 


Now that both Victorious and iCarly are over after this last season (sad face), we’re looking for a new Nickelodeon show to watch religiously. And it looks like we won’t have to wait much longer because Nick’s brand-new Marvin, Marvin launches Saturday, November 24 at 8:30pm ET! The show (which features a live audience) centers around Marvin (Lucas Cruikshank), an alien with super powers from Planet Klooton, who was sent to Earth in order to protect him from evil intruders. Victory Van Tuyl plays his human sister, Teri Forman, whose job is to hide Marvin’s true identity from anyone and everyone.
