We remember when we were kids and our big plans for the evening consisted of just watching Nickelodeon shows. Well, we’re adults now and we have many more options, which is why it’ll be that much more satisfying to choose to stay in and watch those exact same shows again.
Nickelodeon has announced that The Splat, their newly announced “channel” devoted to airing its shows from the 90s, will debut its first chunk of programming on October 5 on TeenNick, starting at 10 pm.
You’ll be getting a little bit of everything, from live action shows like Clarissa Explains it All and Are You Afraid of the Dark, to cartoons like Angry Beavers and Ren & Stimpy, to game shows like Legends of the Hidden Temple. And that’s just the tip of the 90s nostalgia iceberg.
The Splat looks like it will be less of a traditional channel and more of an amalgamation of different media. They’ll air shows, but also rely on The Splat website, a large social media presence, and YouTube to bring you your favorites.
Oh, and they’re also releasing a new Nick-emoji keyboard to go with it. Because sometimes the only way to describe how bad your day is going is with a Reptar emoji.
Nickelodeon has already announced more programming for the month. Starting October 12 they’ll celebrate our favorite little monster with a Reptar week on Rugrats, and the following week they’ll have Hey Arnold episodes dedicated to our favorite “Stoop-kids.”
And in case you really want to nerd out, just in time for Halloween they’ll bring back their call-in show, Nick or Treat. It won’t be weird when a bunch of thirty-somethings call in to try and win a bucket of slime, right? Asking for a friend.
