90s Nickelodeon Cartoons to Return!

OH yes.  Take THAT.  If you’ll please first refer back to the post in which I tell you that I can, in fact, predict the future, we’ll go from there.

Are you finished reading it?  Okay.  So it’s true.  I can predict the future.  I said that often, I write things down and they come to fruition–much like the time that I wrote about how NICKELODEON CARTOONS SHOULD COME BACK.  You heard right, bloggy readers.  I did it again.  I will 1990’s Nickelodeon cartoons back onto the air!

Hold on.  Watch our beloved Kenan Thompson explain it to you:

According to Mashable:   “TeenNick, one of many networks under the Nickelodeon brand name, will air four-hour blocks of “classic” (by generation Y standards) Nickelodeon original content between the hours of midnight and 4 am.”

Starting Monday, July 25 at midnight, WE WIN!  Here’s the line-up:

“As Nickelodeon fan site Nickutopia shares, this is the lineup of shows that TeenNick will be airing during “The ’90s Are All That”:

  • Aaahh!!! Real Monsters
  • The Adventures of Pete & Pete
  • All That
  • The Amanda Show
  • Are You Afraid of the Dark?
  • Catdog
  • Clarissa Explains it All
  • Double Dare
  • Doug
  • Hey Arnold!
  • Kenan & Kel
  • Legends of the Hidden Temple
  • Nickelodeon GUTS
  • The Ren & Stimpy Show
  • Rocket Power
  • Rocko’s Modern Life
  • Rugrats
  • Salute Your Shorts
  • The Secret World Of Alex Mack

In addition to these shows, “The ’90s are All That” will feature special appearances from popular Nickelodeon Stick Stickly. Frankly, I think I’m most excited about the return of Stick Stickly.” -Mashable

STICK STICKLY!  I blatantly wrote about Stick Stickly here.  I am just so so so excited!  I might have to get myself cable for this.  Really, I might.  Because this is the most glorious thing I have heard in MONTHS!

1990’s Nostalgia: Hey Arnold!

Kid shows just aren’t what they used to be.  Everything is so damn educational now.  What happened to fun?  Sure, I agree that the TV can be used for educational purposes, but crimenetlies!  I’m just tired of all these people acting like TV was so bad.  We all turned out alright.  And the truth is that TV is meant for entertainment.  The beauty of being a kid is that you’re not forced to learn all day, and you’re not forced to work all day.  Sometimes, you just want to sit back and watch TV.

And let’s be honest–what adult doesn’t have some silly indulgence, be it a reality show or some other nonsense.  I love love LOVE the Real Housewives of New Jersey, but darnit, I know I’m not learning a thing from it.

So today, we rejoice in Hey Arnold!, and all it’s glorious characters.  From football-shaped heads, to unibrow girls in pink dresses, this is for you, Hey Arnold!

Below I have included an 11:00min clip (calm down!  it’s a damn cartoon-enjoy it) which culminates in that glorious episode in which Stoop Kid is afraid to leave his Stoop.  You will be chanting it in your head the rest of the day.

1990’s Nostalgia – Nickelodeon

The 1990’s are my golden age.  The music, the movies, the world.  Most people long for the days that they were in high school, but lemme tell ya–2000-2003 were not that grand.  Apart from holding onto my first relationship those years, and playing a little hide-n-seek in the cornfields, it kinda sucked.  Y2K was nothing, and then there was 9/11, not to mention heading off to college was some looming travesty for me.

BUT, everything turned out great, and the college years have a golden sheen on them, too.  To be honest, everything in my life has been pretty golden.  I suppose it’s just that the 1990’s are the decade that I long for…much in the way that I long for the 1950’s (even though I’ve never been there).

The 1990’s to me were odd and wonderful, grungy and poppy, Chumbawumba lovin’, teenyboppin’, horrible dance hit Hammer-Pants, Salutin’ my shorts and watching cartoons that I wasn’t supposed to.

So the first reason the 1990’s were golden to me?

GAH my world revolved around Nickelodeon!  Remember in the summertime, they’d have Stick Stickly in the afternoon?  I LOVED him.

U-Dip, U-Host, U-Pick!  It was effing brilliant!  And he’d let you pick you own shows, pick what to dip him in!  Seriously, best host ever.  I wish he would have been a VJon MTV (although Jesse Camp kind of rocked my world).

And Nickelodeon offered the best cartoons/television shows, some of which I will delve into at a later date) (Thanks, Wiki!):
