Oh shit I need to watch this, SNICK was at its prime when I was a kid in the mid '90s.

My fave Nick shows were always the gameshows, especially Legends of the Hidden Temple, but I also loved All That, Are You Afraid of the Dark?, and a lot of Nicktoons. Doug, Rugrats, and Rocko were early staples but my faaaave is Hey Arnold. ♥

I heard they're making a new LOTHT for ADULTS, IDK where the plan is for that - prob halted because of COVID - but I hope they still make it happen lol

Double Dare was the best, it looked like so much fun. I also loved You Can’t Do That on Television, Alanis Morissette was on that when she was a bebe.

They talk about how You Can;t Do That on Television helped shape the network.

I really miss those days.

Does anyone else who has kids in their lives notice they really dislike live action shows and movies? I feel like there are waaaay less live action kid shows now and they think they're boring as a result.

I still watch Power Rangers every now and then and they have dumbed it down so much more than what it was in the 90s it's ridiculous.

YES. and then when they do watch live action it’s fucking Blippie. the quality they’re consuming makes me weep.

I am so pumped that paramount basically has all of nickeldeon's catalog.

Fifteen was everything to me when I was like 8.

I was so psyched to see all my childhood favorites on Paramount! I'm trying to get my kids into Allegra's Window.
