Over a week ago, we learned that Nickelodeon was planning on bringing a 90s programming block called The Splat to the kids network, bringing back some of their most iconic shows from 15-25 years ago. Details were scarce at the time, but hot on the heels of the Good Burger reunion on The Tonight Show, more complete information has been revealed.
The Splat will begin on October 5th on TeenNick from 10pm-6am, but which shows from the 90s will be part of this new programming block? Thankfully, The Splat show list has now been revealed.
Here’s the list of programming coming to The Splat (via Time):
- All That
- The Angry Beavers
- Are You Afraid of the Dark?
- Clarissa Explains It All
- Hey, Arnold!
- Hey, Dude
- Kenan & Kel
- The Ren & Stimpy Show
- Legends of the Hidden Temple
- Rocko’s Modern Life
- Salute Your Shorts
- The Wild Thornberrys
Keep in mind that this is just the initial list of programming that will populate the late night block that many will probably have to use their DVR to enjoy. However, more shows can be added to the line-up, provided that the demand from fans is there. In fact, part of The Splat will be an interactive element that allows viewers to choose what they want to see on the channel.
So don’t worry that The Adventures of Pete & Pete isn’t on this list, because if enough people clamor to see that show join the line-up, surely Nickelodeon will add it. Personally, I’d like to see Kablam!, Guts and Double Dare added to the programming block, but that’s just me. As for Doug, as we predicted, the show won’t be included because ABC owns the rights to the character now.
In addition to shows that fans will be able to help choose, The Splat will also be populated by retro commercials and clips from old promotions like the Super Toy Run, featuring kids sent on a five-minute shopping spree, grabbing as much as they could from a toy store.
There will also be theme weeks on The Splat, with the first coming on October 26th in the form of Nick or Treat. That week will have Halloween themed episodes as well as the chance for viewers to call in and win prizes with a live host. Who might those hosts be? Well, some of them could be old Nickelodeon personalities, but it’s unclear specifically who might show up at this point.
The Splat will invade media on other ways too, including a forthcoming Emoji keyboard and some kind of fun on Snapchat. You know, all the good stuff that people in their late 20s and early 30s love dearly.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
