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
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
