Hey Arnold! The Jungle Movie Trailer

It’s been 13 years since Nickelodeon’s original animated series Hey Arnold! went off the air, but everyone’s favorite football head will return to the children’s cable network just in time for the Thanksgiving leftovers.

Hey Arnold! already received a feature film back in 2002, but now a new TV movie is slated to premiere on Nickelodeon on November 24, the day after Thanksgiving. The first trailer for Hey Arnold!

Rugrats Reptar Bars

One of the most beloved cartoons to come out of Nickelodeon in the 1990s was Rugrats. Though the show lost its way after the movie turned the characters into more of a cash grab commodity, the first few seasons of the series are quirky, clever and full of fantastic pop culture references and parodes for cinephiles.

One of the most famous pieces of pop culture parody from Rugrats is the giant lizard monster known as Reptar. An obvious spoof of Godzilla, the green dinosaur had his own movie that Tommy Pickles and his friends tried to sneak around a multiplex to see, his own ice skating extravaganza, action figures and more. But easily the two most coveted pieces of Reptar memorabilia were the Reptar Bars and Reptar Cereal, and now you can get your hands on both of them right now.

Find out where to get these Rugrats Reptar Bars and Reptar Cereal below. Read More »

Spongebob Squarepants Musical

Despite any nostalgia ’90s kids may have for characters from Doug, Rugrats, or Hey Arnold!, it’s hard to argue that there’s any bigger or more popular character in the history of Nickelodeon than SpongeBob SquarePants. Don’t believe me? As of 2015, the property had generated a staggering $12 billion for Nickelodeon in merchandising alone. Whoa.

Now it looks like the character is going to be responsible for putting even more cash in the company’s pockets, because a SpongeBob SquarePants musical is heading to Broadway later this year – and the list of talent the producers wrangled up to write songs for this is one of the most random collections of musicians this side of “We Are The World.”

Ren and Stimpy in the Nicktoons Movie

Back in the fall of 2015, news surfaced that Paramount Pictures was working on a live-action animated hybrid movie that would bring back some of the staple Nicktoons from the ’90s era of Nickelodeon. Since then, Napoleon Dynamite director Jerusha Hess was brought on as director, but it’s been over a year and we haven’t heard any significant updates on the project. However, we did just find out that one Nicktoon thought to be included won’t show up in any new line-up of the cartoons.

According to Ren and Stimpy co-creator Bob Camp, his angry chihuahua and charmingly dimwitted red cat probably won’t be involved in the developing Nicktoons movie or considered as a possible reboot, as it seems there’s some bad blood between the cartoon’s creators and Nickelodeon.
