Nickelodeon Is Bringing Back The ’90s
Remember the 1990's - when Artie was the Strongest Man...in the WOOORLD, there was a redheaded baby named Chuckie that didn't murder people, and Keenan Thompson was on a different sketch comedy show? Nickelodeon was a staple in my life growing up and now, Nick has announced "The ’90s Are All That" a block of '90's programming.
Pete & Pete, All That, and Rugrats are just some of the shows I used to watch growing up. Nickelodean has reveleaed that they will be bringing back a number of "retro" '90s programming.
According to EW.com:
Starting this fall, TeenNick will dust off old faves like Rugrats, Kenan & Kel, Pete & Pete, The Amanda Show, All That and Clarissa and air them in a new midnight-to-2 a.m. programming block dubbed (appropriately enough) The ’90s Are All That. The tween cabler came up with the idea after seeing the huge interest in early Nickelodeon programming on social media sites. There are several Facebook pages — followed by millions of fans — that are devoted to Nickelodeon shows from the ’90s.
"At the time, we were completely devoted to that audience ages 9, 10, and 11,” Keith Dawkins, senior VP and general manager of TeenNick, tells EW. “It was ground-breaking and for the young viewers, a powerful and pivotal time in their lives. Those kids who are now 22, 23 and 24 want to bring that back.”
Over time, TeenNick hopes to use the retro block to showcase other ’90s programming and movies. So if you didn’t get a chance to see Good Burger then…
