Nickelodeon to Bring Back '90s Programming with The Splat
Published Sep 24, 2015It often feels like humanity spends its time screaming "do you remember the '90s?" into a vast, empty abyss. And now, the executives at Nickelodeon have answered. Yes, they do remember the '90s.
The network has announced plans to launch "The Splat," a new, multi-faceted initiative that will bring Nickelodeon's classic programming to televisions, mobile devices and online at TheSplat.com.
"We have been listening closely to our first generation of Nick kids that are craving the great characters and shows they grew up with watching Nickelodeon in the '90s," said Cyma Zarghami, president of Viacom Kids and Family Group. "We designed 'The Splat' with fans and their requests in mind, which means we're bringing together these beloved series and a high level of digital engagement to give fans a retro media experience they can't get anywhere else."
The Splat will include '90s Nickelodeon programs like Rugrats, Kenan & Kel, Ren & Stimpy, Clarissa Explains it All, Rocko's Modern Life, Are You Afraid of the Dark? and many others. You will never not remember the '90s again.
Fittingly, Kenan & Kel had a brief reunion in a sketch on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night. You can watch the sketch below.
