Next month brings another one of Nickelodeon’s attempts to cash in on the nostalgia that children of the ’90s have as they’re now taking care of children of their own. The Legends of the Hidden Temple movie takes all the elements of the kids’ game show and incorporates them into an adventure movie where three kids end up stuck in an ancient temple and must overcome various obstacles in order to escape alive.
A new Legends of the Hidden Temple trailer really pushes the adventure side of the movie, opting not to have any of the kids speak and letting the only dialogue come from the giant talking stone head known as Olmec (played by the original voice actor Dee Bradley Baker), delivering one of his signature lines from the show. You can watch it below if you wish. The choice is yours and yours alone. Read More »
When I wrote about Nickelodeon’s upcoming TV movie adaptation of Legends of the Hidden Temple, I joked that there would probably be a scene where the main characters hopelessly struggle to assemble the statue in the Shrine of the Silver Monkey, a tribute to the room in the original game show that seemed to baffle even the smartest kid contestants. And lo and behold, such a scene exists in the new trailer!
If you remember Legends of the Hidden Temple, congratulations: you are a ’90s kid and everything from your childhood is next in line for a nostalgic revival (hello, Power Rangers). However, this new version is not a game show where kids participate in increasingly humiliating physical challenges to earn the chance to get traumatized by temple guards – it’s a family adventure movie about three kids exploring an actual temple that is hidden…and we can safely assume that it will contain some legends.

In addition to his role as Olmec, you’ve undoubtedly heard Baker’s voice in other movies, TV shows and video games. Find out what Baker has been up to along with details on the Legends of the Hidden Temple movie after the jump. Read More »

A few weeks ago, we learned that Nickelodeon is reviving Legends of the Hidden Temple as a TV movie and ’90s nostalgia began to flare up all over the internet. Grown men and women – sitting in cubicles, inching through rush hour, preparing for important dates, attending secret sex parties in secluded mansions – all paused whatever they were doing as they flashed back to a simpler time. A time when watching children endure physically punishing and humiliating tasks so they could maybe, possibly, get the chance to have the crap scared out of them by men dressed as “temple guards” made for compelling television.
Now, all of those ’90s kids better steady themselves again because Kirk Fogg, the original host of the show, has been cast in the new movie. Because apparently continuity matters in the Legends of the Hidden Temple cinematic universe.

Even though Nickelodeon is still a destination channel for kids these days, they just don’t have as many cool game shows as they used to back in the ’90s. They have a handful on the air today, but in the ’90s the likes of Guts, Double Dare, Figure It Out, Nick Arcade, Wild & Crazy Kids and Legends of the Hidden Temple really gave kids something to get excited about. And now one of them is making a comeback, though not exactly in the way that we would have hoped.
Legend of the Hidden Temple is getting a reboot on Nickelodeon, but rather than being a game show for kids, it will be a TV movie that incorporates elements of the show into the story. This comes after Hey Arnold! was slated to get a TV movie on the network as well. Find out more about the Legends of the Hidden Temple reboot below. Read More »
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.

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. Read More »
