    Posted on 05/29/2014 by Rachel1016

    Oh hey, '90s fans. Grab your Tomagotchis, lace up your Airwalks, and throw it on back to a time when neon fanny packs, over-sized flannel shirts, backward baseball caps, and explosions of color reigned supreme. You know you loved the ridiculousness of '90s fashion, so we rounded up some of our favorite moments from '90s Nick shows to demonstrate just how sartorially EPIC its characters were!

  • Celebrating 20 Years of 'All That!' With Our Favorite Moments!

    Posted on 04/16/2014 by Rachel1016

    All That!

    Happy 20th Anniversary, All That! On this day twenty years ago, the first episode of Nickelodeon's legendary sketch comedy show premiered. To celebrate all the breathless laughter induced by Pierre Escargot, Ishboo, Ask Ashley, Good Burger and more, we gathered some of our favorite moments from the bona-fide hilarity machine. What more is there say, except: Fresh out the box. Stop, look, and watch. Ready at, get set. It's All That!

    A definite All That! classic. Pierre Escargot was our resident raincoat-wearing, foul-mouthed, bubble bath connoisseur. Check out Pierre's first ever appearance on All That! (where Kenan may or may not laugh at his own jokes).

    Sweet on the outside, but quite a temper on the inside, All That! favorite Ashley ("Thaaat's me!") answers fan mail from her devoted followers. In this clip, she's tasked to answer questions from a few fans who she thinks are pretty much the dim-wittiest kids on the planet. (And I mean, we've gotta admit, she has a point.)

    What can we say about Lori Beth Denberg? Well, how much time do you have?! Lori's sketch 'Vital Information For Your Everyday Life' stands at the very forefront of legendary All That! sketches. Sure, the information was arguably vital at best (let's be real, you knew that putting peanut butter on your arm and telling a rabid dog to 'eat your arm to the bone' was probably a bad idea), but Lori was there. She was there to confirm your hunches and squelch your doubts.

    Okra was something of a dvine entity. She was the queen of daytime talk shows, and invited guests who were beautiful, hysterical trainwrecks. And as a bonus, Rose Perrot, Earboy and even Sinbad make a cameo in this clip.

    Where is Ishboo from? Do we really want to know?

    We just have three things to say: 1) I'm a dude, he's a dude, she's a dude, we're all dudes! 2) 'Sister, Sister' stars Tia and Tamera Mowry make a guest appearance dressed in something amazing, and 3) Can I take your order?

    What are some of your favorite memories from All That!? Share them with us in the comments!

  • '90s Are All That: Our Favorite Moments from 'Hey Dude!'

    Posted on 03/13/2014 by Rachel1016 and Laura Mac

    Hey Dude

    Yippy-ta-ya-yea! Better watch out for those man-eating jack rabbits, and that killer cacti! Cowboys and the wild western frontier were all the rage back in the '90s -- Walker, Texas Ranger, City Slickers, Wild, Wild West, you name it. It's no surprise that Nick hopped right onto the saddle to take part in that cowboy craze with Hey Dude. Check out our favorite moments from the Bar None Dude Ranch!

    Ah, battle of the sexes: the age-old question of who's more awesome! When Ted and Danny challenge Brad and Melody to a series of competitions around the ranch, there's more than pride at stake! With the threat of a week's worth of extra chores if they lose, the two teams prepare for a one-on-one horse race. "Guys! Guys! Guys! Guys! Go!" "Girls! Girls! Girls! Girls! *air kiss* Girls!"

    It's a dark and stormy night (wait, is this an episode of Are You Afraid of the Dark?), and the Bar None gang decide to pass the time by telling ghost stories. After Ted scares the bajeezus out of Brad, she plans to get him back with the help of Melody, Buddy and Danny. They concoct an elaborate scheme to scare Ted, but, too bad, it looks like he knows every trick in the book!

    This is it! The episode we were all waiting for! It was a long time coming for Ted and Brad to finally put their petty arguing aside and realize that, yeah, they like each other. Really like each other. But after their first date, cool-guy Ted gets a little discouraged when he makes a few slip-ups. Can he muster the courage to kiss her goodnight?

    Ted might be away at summer school, but the mischief and shenangians at Bar None didn't leave with him! The new kid on the block, Jake, swipes a secret comic strip drawn by Danny called "The Dud Ranch" -- it's based on everyone who works at the ranch! Jake thinks it's hilariously snarky and offers to sell it to the local newspaper, but when he realizes no one is safe from embarrassment, he second guesses himself.

    Everybody's favorite goofball is back! When the Bar None gang all get the sneaking suspicion that somebody is watching them, they embark on a hunt for the so-called "Bar None Stalker." Turns out, it's just our guy Ted trying to mess with everyone, as usual. The gang is thrilled to see him…but Ted's not so thrilled to see Kyle (the new new kid) flirting it up with Brad. Looks like Ted's still got a little soft spot for her.

  • '90s Are All That: Our Favorite Moments from 'Kenan & Kel'

    Posted on 02/27/2014 by Rachel1016

    Kenan & Kel

    Awww, here it goes! Kenan and Kel were the original hi-jinx masters, always getting themselves into hilarious trouble. It's time to take a look back at all of their daffy shenanigans and remember that the very best of friends are the ones who will love you no matter how crazy you are. (Plus, who else was rad enough to have '90s superstar Coolio sing their theme song? Oh right, nobody.)

    If you can't trust a clown, who can you trust? Just as Kenan and Kel decide it's time to grown up and act responsible, a clown makes a total fool out of them. The irony is just… so sweet.

    Inspired by Ernest Hemingway, Kenan and Kel make a list of goals to accomplish before they die. The two decide to climb the stairs of the Sears Tower (now called the The Willis Tower -- so vintage) and, of course, few things actually go right.

    Kenan mistakenly gets a job as the Executive Vice President of a big company, and he hires Kel as his personal assistant. But when he's called upon to make a big presentation on his plans for the company, it becomes clear that both of the guys aren't cut out for the big leagues.

    It's April Fool's Day and the boys' pranking game is, unsurprisingly, on point. But when Kenan has a run-in with a real cop, it seems as though the spirit of the holiday has gone straight to his head.

    In a rare, serious Kenan & Kel moment, the boys take a trip down memory lane after Kenan learns his family is moving to Montana. No one wanted to see this gruesome twosome break up, but *spoiler alert* we thankfully didn't have to.

  • '90s Are All That: Our Favorite Moments from 'CatDog!'

    Posted on 02/20/2014 by LauraMac


    We all know cats have taken over the Internet without really trying, and dogs are...well, foolish. It's nice to see not much has changed since CatDog first aired on Nick. Check out our top five episodes with our favorite odd couple.

    Cat loves his brother, Dog...but, yeesh, can't a guy get some time alone? When the conjoined bros decide to take some time apart, Cat learns to be careful what you wish for.

    One of the best things about animation is ANYTHING can happen. This episode magically makes everyone in the world of CatDog lose their voices and suffer sudden colorblindness. Get ready for the ultimate #tbt -- the silent era of film and cartoons!

    Dog is smart in this episode. No, really. He's actually smart.

    We love Winslow. How can you not admire such a big, wiseguy personality in such a tiny mouse? Cat won't invite the little guy to his house party, though, so Winslow sets out to exact his revenge. Don't mess with the mouse.

    For the obsessive Star Wars fan in all of us, this episode is a must-see. When CatDog literally get sucked into Dog's favorite sci-fi movie, Dog is hard-pressed to become an intergalactic hero. Fuddy-duddy Cat couldn't care less...until he falls in love with a space princess, which is kinda magnificent.

  • '90s Are All That: Our Favorite Clips From 'Are You Afraid Of The Dark?'

    Posted on 02/14/2014 by Rachel1016

    Are You Afraid Of The Dark

    Submitted for the approval of the Midnight Society, we call this story "Our Favorite Clips From 'Are You Afraid Of The Dark?'"

    A spoiled rich kid and his babysitter set off to his aunt's house. Melissa Joan Hart guest stars in this spooky tale that begins the way all great ghost stories do: with mysterious footprints in the mud.

    When Melissa's friend Susan mysteriously disappears, she finds out that she's been turned into a porcelain doll. They're both trapped in the dollhouse and unsure whether or not the curse can be reversed. Excuse us while we put our childhood toys back in their boxes…

    As if we need to explain why clowns are actually the scariest things on earth, when Josh bets he can steal the nose of Zeebo the Clown, the creepy jester goes after him. A-DUH!

    Honestly, is there anything less appealing than an old hospital at night? After volunteering for the night shift, Amanda learns there's a vampire on the loose, and proceeds to confirm our fear that never needed to be confirmed in the first place.

    Ghost children, pleading messages, and blood-curdling screams are standard AYAOTD fare. The writing's on the wall. Literally!

  • '90s Are All That: Our Favorite Clips From 'Rugrats!'

    Posted on 02/07/2014 by Rachel1016
    Rocko's Modern Life

    Never underestimate what lies inside a child's mind! Tommy, Chuckie, Angelica and the gang might may have barely had their baby teeth, but they taught us that the simplest of things can become the greatest of journeys. Check out some of our favorite Rugrats memories below, then share yours in the comments!

    Aw man, Grandpa Boris and the babies are trapped in the attic on Passover. To pass the time, Boris tells the story of the story of Moses, in which Angelica fittingly imagines herself as the Pharaoh who oppressed the Hebrews. Pharaoh Angelica sits pretty on her throne, but it's not too long after she's showered with cupcakes and Rockstar Cynthia dolls that Moses demands, "LET MY BABIES GO!" And that's why Passover is so important.

    Chuckie finds an old photo of his mom, who passed away sometime ago. Despite his pop's hesitation to share memories with Chuckie, he opens up about the mom his son never got to know. He shares a moving poem that Chuckie's mom wrote for little Chuckie, and we share a good cry with our computer screen.

    How 'Reptar On Ice' never became a real, beloved, skating spectacular, we will never know. I mean, is there anything more touching than the love between a woman and a dinosaur?

    There's no business like show business! Phil and Lil are off to become big baby diaper stars, but it appears the twins are having trouble really sharpening their craft. That, or they're just babies.

    Tommy decides to illustrate his life in a home movie, and even though some some might consider a magnificently squiggly mess, it's really bonafide artistic masterpiece.

    Holy horse feathers, the play ground is turning into the Wild Wild West! Tommy and Chuckie are the new cowboys in town, and Junk Food Kid is a total scalawag (who actually makes Angelica look like a saint). When Tommy decides that someone needs to teach this Junk Food Kid a lesson, he stands up for kid-kind, saves the school playground, and restores all that shines!

    When Rugrats see a giant pool of water, they don't think pool, they think giant toilet. And since nothing is more fun than flushing toilets, the baby sinkers mount the diving board (which they mistake for the handle flusher) and launch all the parents into MAJOR panic mode.

    It was only a matter of time before Stu's crazy inventions got him in trouble... When he falls and hits his head, mild amnesia leads Stu to believe he's a baby! And Tommy and the gang realize that Stu has "growed down" into the biggest baby "they ever sawed."

    Everyone knows that Angelica is a big bully and a liar, but after believing her own fib about the sky falling, the group prepares for the End of the World. And we don't know about you, but if regular Angelica sounds bad, post-apocalyptic Angelica sounds pretttty miserable.

    Meet Susie Carmichael! She just moved in next door, and she's really excited to show Tommy her new room. Only problem is, she can't quite find it in the house�
