What Happened To Nickelodeon?

Sun Oct 24, 2004 9:07 am

I'm sitting here watching my cousin stare at the goop nick has become. What ever happened to all the good shows on Nick? What happened to Pete and Pete, Rocko, Clarissa, Alex Mack, Shelby Woo, Welcome Freshmen, Are you afraid of the Dark, Salute Your Shorts, Hey Dude (even though I hated it), Doug?

Those shows were gold and basically made my childhood. I think I watched Nick every day of my life from the moment we go cable until the moment I became interested in MTV, and even they have become crap. Noggin is ok sometimes, but it's missing all the good stuff. It seems like Nick is no longer interested in entertaining kids but rather in the money and the ratings. Now they have this crap like Amanda Bynes Show and that Rocketpower thing. They even ruined Rugrats (I know it's because of popularity, but still). Heck the only good shows they have are Spongebob and the Fairly Odd Parents.

I wish they would start a channel that shows reruns of all those good old nick shows from my childhood. Anyone else agree?

I left it out because Rugrats its still on and ever since they had that dil kid the show's gone to crap. Now they have "all drown up" or w/e, and the days of old rugrats have been put to shame.

Oh wow...what a walk down memory lane that post is Corpsnerd...I haven't seen any of those shows in years but I'm getting real nostalgic just thinking about it...there is a channel called Nick GAS which shows a lot of classic Nick game shows...Double Dare, Legends of the Hidden Temple, Guts, Figure it Out (I can't believe Im calling it "classic"), which I get and watch occasionally, reliving my childhood...but I agree, there should be a Nick Classic with the shows you said too, it'd be great...

I agree, kids shows are extremely different than what they used to when we were young. Shows like Double Dare, Wild and Crazy Kids, Count Duckula, What Would you Do? I remember that Saturday mornings and weekday afternoons were the only time I had to watch cartoons like bugs bunny. I also miss those simple cartoons on Nick Jr. I see my 12 year old brother watching the new generation of cartoons and other kids entertainment and you are right corpsnerd, it is a big business now.

Yeah I loved Nick Junior, I remember Papa Beaver's Story Tiem, and the Gnomes, and Maya the Bee (of course that is from when I was a toddler).

Now they have shows like Blues Clues and Dora the Explorer which make kids look like morons and look like they were thought up during the writer's latest crack binge.

I second USAFHummer.... If you can, get "Nick GAS", they play all the great Nick gameshows (as Hummer posted)... I can't believe Figure it Out came out like 8 or 9 years ago, it feels like it just began recently!

you should've posted that comment on the other thread.

Plus kids that age tend to choose whomever their parents choose, they have personal opinion on elections. They're choosing whoever their parents want to choose, as they have done the past 4 elections.

That still isn't classic Nick. I grew up watching "You Can't Do That On Television" and "Turkey Television" back in the mid-1980's. I think those were Candian imports. Cartoon spy "Danger Mouse" was a British show. "Nick Rocks" showed music videos, heck even HBO would schedule 30 minute video blocks. Cable TV in the 80's - all 36 channels of it.

I vaguely remember You Can't Do That On Television (that one is from Canada for sure)...the others I havent heard of...my Nick days probably started around 1988 or 1989 so anything before that is meaningless to me...

All of the shows mentioned bring back great memories for me. LOVED "Welcome Freshmen" and "You Can't do That on Television." Nick should bring them back. They certainly have enough channels to do so, and they could certainly, like someone said, make a channel - Niclelodeon Classics.

Cartoons these days absolutely suck. All of them seem to be in the form of Japanimation garbage--with lame, repetitive story lines. I can't believe that kids would watch that crap. I too, miss the old Nickelodeon. Doug, Alex Mack, and Salute Your Shorts were awesome.

Aaah memories! I agree, Nick is complete crap these days! Everything on it is geared towards pop-culture, that's the problem. The older shows like Rocko and Salute Your Shorts didn't have crap to do with pop-culture (in fact Rocko seemed to insult it) The network has been going down hill ever since the current president (of Nick not Viacom) came. It seems it only started sucking since he came.

Since then I have became more of a Cartoon Network fan myself (even though there's too much anime on it).

I think it has everything to do with Viacom. They have turned everything into MTVesque television. My God, they are making this country more ignorant by the minute! Remember when MTV showed videos? Remember when VH1 wasn't reality shows and "They're rich and you're not" bull#@!#? Remember when Spike TV was...oh wait, that one has sucked since it came into being.

I do find Sponge Bob to funny though. I wish they'd make some new episodes of that.

I remember back in the mid 80s before my parents could afford cable, Nickelodeon was synonymous with slime and other gross stuff (a la Double Dare). I also remember watching that one cartoon called "Cops", Pinwheel, Today's Special, and Inspector Gadget...those were the days.  SmileAnyone remember the old song? "Nick nick nick n-nick nick nick...nickelodeonnn!"

Fairly odd parents and Spongebob are the only good cartoons left on there. Some of their sitcoms aren't bad but nothing at all like it used to be.

Yea...it seems like Nick has totally gone away from that these days...at Nick's peaks in the late 1980's to mid 1990's, it seemed like every show featured some sort of mess....Double Dare, What Would You Do? (this was my favorite at the time, would love to see this again), You Can't Do This On Television, Figure It Out...etc...

I believe the "slimings" started on "You Can't...." There was even a recipe for it. It was green Jell-O, dishwashing detergent, and a couple of ofther things.

BTW: Turkey TV was a sort of successor show. Christine and Kevin were both on it. They probably about 40 years old now. Damn, I'm feeling old.

I remember watching Stick Stickley in the afternoons. They used to show you pick 'em cartoons. They could bring back some of the old shows they used to have like Double There and What would you do, and get rid of this MTV rip off slime time live.

I loved Angry Beavers it was probably one of their last good cartoons before they went sour. Hey Arnold was ok, it wasn't rerally pop-culturish either, sure it came late into the line-up but was still basically classic nick-like.

Man, all those kids from Salute Your Shorts and Welcome Freshmen must have kids of their own now.

Oh yeah, and have you seen these japanimation shows. Just yesterday morning I woke up to find some stupid show which had the EXACT SAME PLOT as that Yu-Gi-Oh show. It was the same card game with the same ideals... I mean, Yu-Gi-Oh sucks anyway. A friend told me there's like 3 or 4 similar shows like that . They also have all these pokemon rip-offs, like Digimon and pigimon and gugimon and everything with a mon in the back.

I hate it how they sacrifice quality for money.

Exactly! Nickelodeon, MTV, and VH1 are all owned/operated by Viacom... and they've all lost their original purpose!





On a different note, anyone remember "Pinwheel"... which later had an exact clone in "Euryka's Castle"?

How about "The Adventures of Alex Mack", or my all time old favorite (click the link to see the opening theme) "The Mysterious Cities of Gold"?

Didnt really like any of the other than that one, but I seem to be the only person on Earth to remember three of these four shows.

"Calliope" was the preschool shows and then the USA Cartoon Express ran for two hours at night. USA would lease out time to other channels that were trying to start up because they already had a transponder on the one comsat that the cable ops dishes could "see" without adding equipment or repositioning them. BET started as a two or three hour Friday night block.

A trip down memory lane  Laugh out loud...

I got to watch Rocko's Modern Life when I was in Amsterdam in August on Nickelodeon, partly because it was the only thing on in English where I was staying, partly because that show was/is hilarious....and it was a real treat. I wish they'd bring it back. Alex Mack & Rocko beat the hell out of Romeo (who the hell gave Lil Romeo his own show?) & As Told by Ginger anytime. The stuff that's on these days sucks, I never watch it.

There were a lot of good shows on "back in the day": Legends of the Hidden Temple, Alex Mack, Doug, Salute Your Shorts, Hey Dude!, Rocko's Modern Life, Angry Beavers, KABLAM! (Action League Now), Inspector Gadget, Ren & Stimpy were all ones I watched...the last "good" Nick show being SpongeBob SquarePants.

Another Nick game show that sticks out in my mind was called "Nick Arcade" I think, and the contestants had to play video games & answer questions to progress through the game. The final round was where they were put in a video game (using Green Screens) & they had to do certain things to pass it. It was a ritual for about 2 1/2 years for me to get up on Saturday Mornings, play one of the early versions of Flight Simulator & watch Nick Arcade all at once. Those were the days.

Nick Arcade, I remember that show, too. KABLAM! with Action League Now. That was on All That back when the show was good (in its first seaon). Then they made it into it's own show.

Another short-lived very crazy, very out there show was AHHHH! Real Monsters.

It was sort of creepy and far out.

I miss the glory days of Nickelodeon. "Mr. Wizard," "Pinwheel," "Special Delivery," "Today's Special," "You can't do that on Television," (I think if you said "I don't know" on that show, you got covered with green slime.)etc. Those were the good ole days of Nickelodeon. In the mornings, around 6AM they always showed "Lassie" and "Denis the Menace," and then they had Nick at Nite with shows like "Mr. Ed," "Green Acres," "Donna Reed," "My Three Sons," and many others.

It's all crap now.

I wouldn't say it is all crap now... I guess the tastes of today's kids are different from our own. Plus I think most of us have just grown out of that phase of liking Nick... usually around 13 or 14 years old.

A few other old school Nick shows, "Out of Control" with Dave Collier of Full House and Surreal Life III fame, and "Mr. Wizzard." Didn't he get charged with fondling kids, or did I just make that up???



There was some good stuff, and CB I remember those shows too. And Dangermouse was one of my favorite shows when I was 5/6 years old.

Now, N@N features stuff like Roseanne and the Cosby Show... shows that ~I~ grew up with!!!  Wow!

Nickelodeon 2

I miss Doug, Rocko's Modern Life, Hey Arnold, Angry Beavers, Ahhh Real Monsters, etc...cartoons that were funny but that had a purpose..and that someone actually put time into making!

Clarissa, Alex Mack, Hey Dude, Fifteen, Salute Your Shorts, etc...all some of the best shows out there...stuff that our generation was made of. I'll bet alot of those kids now have kids of their own, or at least are married off.

Nick had that stupid "The Big Help" thing they did every year....we used to call and pledge like 1000 hours just to throw off their counter lol....was the stupidist little segment.

Shelby Woo was that detective show, with the chinese girl in daytona beach.

Then she went to massacusetts for some reason and they got rid of most of the characters so the show ended there... too bad.

Also remember Brother Like me I think was the name

"My Brother & Me"? That was the show about the family that lived in Charlotte (evidenced by the various Charlotte Hornets decorations seen in the show) I think. It was OK, but wasn't the greatest.

Here's a classic Nick gem that no one's thus far brought up (forgive me if you have and my scan missed it).


Anywho... remember "The Adventures of Pete & Pete?"

The "Adventures of Pete & Pete" was an awesome show.

I can't remember when we got 'Satilite TV' exactly but it had to be around 1990-92 since I remember going to the 'famous' "Nickelodeon Studios, Orlando, Florida" - Is that even there anymore?

I loved watching Doug (I see it now as a programme which taught kids some form of morals etc... yet had a good story but it got 'replaced' by "Hey Arnold" because of green, blue and purple people being a tad far fetched - but a football head?

I still enjoy watching "Hey Arnold" whenever I am given the chance (Like about once every six months now....), Rugrats was great then but now it is just trash, spongebob is ok but it is nothing in comparison to Rocko which I used to watch every morning.

Jesus I can still remember sitting on the carpet infront of the TV before school watching Rocko, Rugrats, Doug and Hey Arnold before high tailing it outside those many years ago.

Alex Mack was another good programme, K&K got way too repetative though not to mention they just seemed to put the same 15 episodes on a month  Sad

I thought Clarissa was great too and then of course following on from that, Sabrina - the stories are kinda lame but if you want to stare at MJH for half an hour its great.

@ MDSH00 - Anyone remember the old song? "Nick nick nick n-nick nick nick...nickelodeonnn!" - Hell yeah, I still remember that one perfectly well.

Things started to go downhill when they got onscreen presenters instead of everything being done by voice over, IMHO that is when it all went pear shaped although I can see VIACOM had a large role in screwing it up (Just like VH1).

I remember if you got up really early you could catch Fraggle Rock at 6am (later changed to Rocko), and of course the station used to go off-air at 7pm to Paramount and the first programme was "Roseanne" - Something I still cringe at today :P

Enjoy Life!
