  • This One's for Chris Kelly.

    Posted on 05/02/2013 by Lisa

    Chris Kelly, a member of the '90s rap duo Kris Kross, has passed away. At Nickelodeon, he'll always be remembered for "The Rugrats Rap," so we're posting it today in tribute.

  • It's the ShizNick!

    Posted on 05/02/2013 by Lisa

    If you grew up watching Nickelodeon, there's probably a special place in your heart for Ren & Stimpy, Rugrats, and random buckets of slime. You're not alone. A bunch of professional artists feel the same way.

    The current exhibit at iam8bit, an art gallery in Los Angeles, features pieces inspired by classic Nickelodeon shows (like the stuff we show on The '90s Are All That).

    Here's a peek:

    I love Nickelodeon and art, so I visited iam8bit last week to check out "It's the ShizNick!" They've got two big rooms full of Nick-themed art, and the back room includes human-sized lockers where you can pose for pictures -- perfect for anyone who felt jealous of the kids from You Can't Do That on Television. Poking your head out of a locker to crack a joke is just as much fun as you imagined.

    If you're in LA, check out iam8bit this week to see It's the Shiznick. (The exhibit closes May 5th.) If you can't make it in person, view the art on the iam8bit website!

  • Saved by the Bell!

    I saw on the twittering machine that a bunch of you are stoked to be coming home from school to a double dose of Saved by the Bell these days:

    Therefore, I thought it would be a defensibly valid use of company time to go digging through some photo archives to bring you these bright, sparkly, blinding gems of early '90s awkwardness, so that you can print them out and hang them in your locker, obviously. Or just put them under your pillow, for totally sweet dreamz!

  • What '90s Shows Would You Bring Back?

    Posted on 03/20/2011 by Mary

    Melissa Joan Hart on Clarissa Explains It All
    Do you wish Clarissa would Explain It All to you again on TeenNick?

    The message boards are a-gurglin' with excitement over the retro '90s block we're planning. And like I said, everything's still in the planning stages right now so... that means now is a great time to pipe up!

    What '90s shows do YOU want to see come back?

  • The '90s Are All That on TeenNick

    Posted on 03/10/2011 by Mary

    You know how you guys are always saying you wish we'd show old '90s shows like All That, The Amanda Show, Pete and Pete?

    Well... I don't know if you saw this article in EW yet but... we have good news.

    TeenNick has big things planned for you... a nice, comfy programming block stuffed with retro '90s goodies. The line-up and start date and all those details aren't carved in stone yet but, it's certainly conceivable that shows like All That, The Amanda Show and The Adventures of Pete and Pete would show up in the mix.

    Full details to come when things ARE carved in stone.
