Calling all ‘90s kids! Or more specifically, all ‘90s kids who watched Nickelodeon shows on the regular. The network has announced today their plans for San Diego Comic Con 2016. They’re bringing 90s culture to the show floor in a big bad way. Every day of the convention there will be new opportunities for fans to engage in activities, panels, and purchase exclusive merch featuring Legends of the Hidden Temple, Hey Arnold!, Rugrats, Double Dare, Aaahh!!! Real Monsters, CatDog, Rocko’s Modern Life, and Invader Zim, among many others.
You can read a full announcement of Nickelodeon’s panels and booth after the jump. (more…)
Whether you were more of a red jaguar, blue barracuda, green monkey, orange iguana, purple parrot or silver snake, you had one ally in common on the 90’s game show Legends of the Hidden Temple; and that was Olmec. It was always crucial to listen to the large stone head when he re-told his ancient stories, because you knew you’d be quizzed on them afterwards. Now it seems you’ll get to hear him wax poetic yet again. Nickelodeon has announced that Dee Bradley Baker, the original voice of Olmec, will be reprising his vocal role for the Legends of the Hidden Temple movie. (more…)
Ready yet? Get set…it’s Aaaaaall That! Before making the careers of Miranda Cosgrove and Ariana Grande, Nickelodeon‘s classic sketch show dominated the airwaves back in the 1990’s and early 2000’s. It was basically a kid-friendly version of SNL complete with comedic sketches, recurring characters, and special musical guests. Characters like Earboy, Superdude and Detective Dan brought a boat load of laughs to kids all across the country, and are still remembered to this day. Recently, Nickelodeon has gotten wind of how popular their old shows are with Buzzfeed-fueled college kids and have a good amount of returning classics up the pipeline. Hey Arnold! and Legends of the Hidden Temple are getting TV movies, and as of today, All That is getting its own reunion special.
Nickelodeon announced a few weeks ago that the popular 90s television show, Legends of the Hidden Temple would be revived as a tv movie, and 90s kids were hit with a huge wave of nostalgia. They fondly remembered weekday afternoons watching their peers compete for five minutes of fame and a “fabulous” prize or two. The children were paired up and ruthlessly fought to be the victors. Think Hunger Games, but without the death. Everyone had their favorite team: Blue Barracudas, perhaps, or maybe Silver Snakes. Rarely did your team win, but when they did, oh it was great. But Nick has released some more good news, and now there is even more reason to celebrate. (more…)
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been around for 30+ years (since 1984. And, yes, if you are an original fan from back in the day… you are old). Every decade or so, the property reinvents itself to a new generation of fans with a newly revised cartoon series and toy/merchandise lines. Currently, the turtles are still giving some shell to today’s youngsters in the wildly popular TMNT animated series on Nickelodeon. Fans of the original 80s/90s cartoon either like it, hate it, or hate that they like it. While the modern series looks a heck of a lot different from the original cartoon (and maybe for the better, classic 2D animation doesn’t quite hold up in retrospect) , it’s still pretty much the exact same product. Of, course, every generation is going to say their generation was the best, but hey, why not both?
In a move to bridge fans of the past and present together (or maybe just praying on nostalgia?) , Nickelodeon is doing something really fun – they’re crossing over the original animated series with the new one. (more…)
Growing up as a kid in the mid 90’s was a lot of fun. One of those big reasons was Legends of the Hidden Temple. In this game show for kids, the object was to complete physical challenges and prove yourself worthy enough to enter the temple. Once inside, you and your partner had to solve a series of puzzles and find the item of the day. It was a great show, and it still is. Now that nostalgia is coming back, and the game show will be adapted into a TV movie for Nickelodeon.
Ever since the Rugrats babies were first introduced to us, fans have had fun thinking about how they would look once they grew up. Fan art of all kinds can be found in abundance on the internet, but one depiction has surfaced that holds a bit more weight over the rest. That’s because it was drawn by storyboard artist Eric Molinksy, who actually worked on the cartoon series. So if anyone would know how Tommy, Chuckie, Phil, Lil, Dil, Kimi, Angelica and Susie would look once they reached adulthood, it’d be this guy. (more…)
If you were a kid growing up in the 90’s (such as yours truly), Nickelodeon’s new line of programming will be bringing back all the feels. It’s called “The Splat”, and, through it, all the classic shows like Hey Arnold, Kenan & Kel, and Rugrats are coming back; not only to television, but through social media platforms and its own website as well. The Splat is pulling out all the stops, by plunging viewers right back into the 90’s with programming stunts featuring retro gems like Nick or Treat, U-Pick, and Super Toy Run. It boasts recreations of the original 90’s era programming, with original promos and interstitials that bring back sorely missed characters such as the Doo-wop Dinosaurs and the Opera Lady. (more…)
If you are a child of the 80’s, there is very little doubt that you enjoyed the Nickelodeon series, Double Dare. The mess-a-minute game show ran from 86-93 and a reboot series would make its way to television in 2000, though its run was considerably shorter than the original. Well, it appears that one of the hosts of the classic series would love to give it another go and if the Nickelodeon execs are ready to bring on the slime, so is he. It appears that Marc Summers, the only DD host in many fans’ minds, wants to get back to the mess with a new reboot. (more…)
We’ve finally got a trailer from Nickelodeon and Studio Mir for the next chapter Book Three Change in The Legend of Korra saga. Check out all the action in the new series because that’s all there is in this trailer, not one single word is uttered, just a ton of flaming, water-soaked, earth moving kicks, punches, and elemental throws.
