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…)
Sometimes I wonder why I pay so much for my cable subscription. My television only visits three channels. No, it’s not broken. There are only three channels that I like watching – BBC America, ESPN, and Cartoon Network. In the early 90’s, my television was tuned into only one station, Nickelodeon. Back then you had shows like Salute Your Shorts, Hey Dude!, Rocko’s Modern Life, Aaahh!! Real Monsters, and so much more. Now, it seems that Nickelodeon might be revisiting some of the shows that made the channel so dominant for kids. Two of the shows that are making the rounds are Rugrats and Hey Arnold!.

I’ve got such a thing for chicks in armor. Man just check out those greaves. For more pics of Catherine Jones’ sweet Claymore cosplay jump to TDW: Geek.
This is BEYOND funny. The peeps over at College Humor threw together some amazing cartoon images of what it would be like if some of our favorite cartoon characters from childhood grew up with us and attended college. We get everything from Robot Frats to the some of the character stuffing their faces with the typical College weekend meal, pizza.
So to answer some of your pressing questions….YES Bart Simpson is still a mischievous bastard who does shit like sell drugs on the dl in the public library. Yes, Johnny Bravo is a tool at the gym. And yes, Chucky from Rugrats continued his nerdom from a kid and did not turn into some suave lady mans in College.
Check out all the pics and laugh your ass off as much as I did after the jump!
Some of the best news ever was released today, and we here at NB just had to share it with you. Nickelodeon owns a network that was formerly called The N and is now called TeenNick. On this channel, from midnight to 2am, they will be airing some of our favorite shows from the 90’s. The title of this post was misleading because I like to break hearts. Salute Your Shorts isn’t yet scheduled to make an appearance. But…
Slated to make their small screen return are Clarissa Explains It All, Rugrats, Kenan & Kel, Pete & Pete, The Amanda Bynes Show and All That. It’s a great lineup of shows that are sure to bring nostalgia to the group of people aged 20-30 who are going to adore this new move. TeenNick has also said that they plan to put on other shows and movies from the 90’s as well, so you can be on the lookout for more retro stuff.
Personally I find it an affront to nature that they didn’t bring back Salute Your Shorts or Are You Afraid of the Dark as their first choices, but fingers crossed that those shows will make an appearance later on. Don’t tell me you didn’t love sitting there as a little crotchling waiting for SNICK to come on!!
What shows are you wanting to see return to television? Are your favorites on this list? Let us know. In the meantime, here is a little video to whet your appetite.
