Remember those glory days when you’d race home from school, grab some Dunkaroos—the definitive junk food we loved most as kids—and waited on you bean bag chair for Nick in the Afternoon to begin? How about the pure ecstasy you felt when the internet hivemind of 10-year olds with computer access worked in your favor and chose Angry Beavers during U-Pick Live? If someone says you're “such an Angelica,” will the insult send you into a blind rage? Well, for all you Millennials who were raised by Nickelodeon (and, really, who needs parents when you have Arnold’s grandparents, Gertrude and Phil), all of your favorites will be coming soon to a screen near you.
You’ll get a bright green, oozing dose of ‘90s nostalgia starting October 5th with the launch of The Splat on Teen Nick. The block of programming will bring back such classics as All That, Angry Beavers, Are You Afraid of the Dark?, CatDog, Clarissa Explains It All, Hey Arnold!, Kenan & Kel, Ren & Stimpy, Rocko’s Modern Life, Rugrats, and The Wild Thornberrys. In addition to old episodes from the golden age of cartoon animals making booger jokes, the network is also reviving Nick or Treat! on October 26th in time for Halloween—a great opportunity to win a crap ton of Gak.
But The Splat has also updated their characters for the modern smart-phone age—to coincide with the shows' revival, the network is releasing emojis of all your favorite characters, which can be accessed through a new app.
Welcome to 2015, Nick.
