’90s kids, rejoice: most of your favorite Nicktoons are now available on NickSplat, a new streaming channel on VRV (the home of Crunchyroll).

And it’s not just Nicktoons they have on offer. NickSplat also boasts a number of Nickelodeon’s live-action shows of yore. (I didn’t audibly squeal when I saw Salute Your Shorts’ first season is available, but it was a near thing.)
Specific seasons of 21 shows are on the lineup. Animated offerings include the first two seasons of AAHHH!!! Real Monsters, ChalkZone, Doug, and Rocko’s Modern Life in addition to the debut seasons of The Angry Beavers, CatDog, KABLAM!, and The Wild Thornberrys.
Then we have the live action list, which is a bit more varied. It includes the first seasons of five game shows (Double Dare 2000, GUTS, Legends of the Hidden Temple, the 2016 Legends reboot, and Nick Arcade); the second season of All That and the first seasons of its two spinoffs Kenal & Kel and The Amanda Show; two seasons each of narrative oddballs Are You Afraid of the Dark? and The Mystery Files of Shelby Woo; the first seasons of Clarissa Explains It All and the aforementioned Salute Your Shorts; and season one of Hey Dude. (I’m putting Hey Dude last because I’m bitter it got a slot and Welcome Freshmen didn’t.)
A handful of shows—Hey Arnold! and Ren & Stimpy among them—are notably absent from the list. But given that this partnership between VRV and Nickelodeon is alive and well, I can’t imagine that’ll last. In the meantime, there’s more than enough to fill your days the same way you did every single summer throughout elementary school.
