What, you thought it was April Fools’ Day? Well… it is, but it’s also the 37th birthday of Nickelodeon, which launched on April 1, 1979. Tons of great memories watching their shows growing up. The Adventures of Pete & Pete, Clarissa Explains It All, The Ren & Stimpy Show, All That, Double Dare, What Would You Do?, Nick Arcade, Legends of the Hidden Temple, Rocko’s Modern Life, Doug, Hey Arnold! & Nickelodeon Guts to name a few.
If you want to relive some of your late 80s and early 90s memories, visit NReboot where they broadcast old Nickelodeon shows.
Also, Slimed!: An Oral History of Nickelodeon’s Golden Age is a pretty decent read even though I am not a fan of the oral history format. It can be a bit hard to follow at times as topics change without warning. Still, there are some interesting stories in there.
