He may live in a pineapple under the sea, but that doesn’t mean we won’t get to see another season of this beloved children’s (and immature adult’s) television series on Nickelodeon! SpongeBob SquarePants, the longest-running animated series on the children-themed network has been greenlit for a 12th season and it will debut on the series’ 20th anniversary, which is unfortunately a couple of years away. Fear not though, the studio is knocking out an entire 26-episiode season and all of our favorite animated squids, crabs, whales, snails, and squirrels will be back!
Nickelodeon’s hype train of millennial nostalgia doesn’t seem to be dying down. Fans said “bring back the old shows,” and it seems like Nick is finally listening. Though many were disappointed with the trailer for the Legends of the Hidden Temple TV movie, the faithful designs released for the upcoming Hey Arnold! movie still have 90’s kids as optimistic as ever. With series creator Craig Bartlett set to write the film, the long-awaited Hey Arnold! movie: The Jungle seems to be just the return to form that the network needs. As if the new Hey Arnold movie wasn’t enough, Nickelodeon announced today that another famous Nicktoon is coming back from the days of Dunkaroos and Planters Cheez Balls and onto your flat-screen TV.

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 is now a TV movie for Nickelodeon.
At the 90s nostalgia fest that took San Diego Comic Con via Nickelodeon, a trailer for The Legends of the Hidden Temple was released onto the world. And… and… it’s…. *sigh*. You’ll see. (more…)
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.

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…)
