Tomorrow brings the release of The Orange Years, a documentary looking at the influential and strange history of Nickelodeon, dubbed “the cable network for kids.” During the 1990s, some of the weirdest and wildest content arrived on Nickelodeon, and not only would it shape the minds of generations of creators to come, but it changed the landscape of what entertainment for children could be.
We’ve got an exclusive clip from The Orange Years that hones in one of the more odd offerings: The Adventures of Pete & Pete. In the clip, series writer Will McRobb talks about the character Artie, the strongest man…in the world. Watch The Orange Years clip below! Read More »

During the 90s, there was an abundance of family friendly sports movies that came from Disney. Sadly, the House of Mouse doesn’t really make movies like that anymore, so today’s generations are still enjoying the likes of movies such as The Mighty Ducks, Angels in the Outfield, Cool Runnings, The Big Green and more. This is all thanks to children of the 90s having kids of their own, and they were likely pretty excited when one of these beloved teams showed up at a real sporting event.
During a recent Anaheim Ducks game, there was a mini Mighty Ducks cast reunion from both the original Mighty Ducks and D2: The Mighty Ducks, and they all even wore jerseys featuring the name of their peewee hockey characters from the Disney sports franchise. Find out who showed up for the Mighty Ducks cast reunion below. Read More »
Nickelodeon has really been doubling down on their nostalgia for the ’90s lately. Last year they introduced the programming block called The Splat that brought favorite cartoons such as Rugrats and Hey Arnold! to TeenNick as well as live-action shows like Are You Afraid of the Dark? and Clarissa Explains It All. There’s a live-action/animated hybrid NickToons movie in the works at Paramount Pictures. And this year they announced a TV movie adaptation of their game show Legends of the Hidden Temple. Now a reunion of one of Nickelodeon’s favorite comedy series is in the works.
All That was the kid version of Saturday Night Live back in the ’90s, except it was recorded instead of done live. The series consisted of a batch of comedy sketches featuring the likes of future stars such as Kenan Thompson (who is currently on SNL), Amanda Bynes (who has sadly gone off the deep end a bit), Jamie Lynn Spears (younger sister of Britney Spears) and Nick Cannon. And now there will be an All That reunion special coming to The Splat. Read More »
