The Old Nickelodeon Shows You Used To Love Are Back On The Air

"Your wish has been granted" - Nickelodeon

In a brilliant, long-awaited move…Nickelodeon has decided to bring back all of the incredible shows that used to run on the network back in the 90s. Growing up with them on every day was a treat, and reliving them will be great. Though, I’m careful not to get too hyped up. The “extreme” things that happened on GUTS may not seem so insane today, and the scary stories from ‘Are You Afraid of the Dark’ probably won’t be so terrifying to me now.

If the shows really are as great as I remember them, along with most everyone else my age (I’m 23)…then I honestly think that this will compete with Adult Swim for that time slot. The shows will be running from 12am-4am, starting Monday. It’s a great idea by Nickelodeon, to capitalize on the extreme obsession with nostalgia our generation currently has. To put that in perspective, I’ve been out with friends at a bar and not exactly sober and gotten into hour(s) long conversations about how awesome our childhood was because of these shows, as well as some of the classic snacks we all used to eat on a daily basis.

We are obsessed with nostalgia, as the Mashable article I linked to in the first line of this post talks about in more detail, and Nickelodeon is helping us get our fix. Check below the video for the full list of shows that will be airing.

The Brotha Over Here Is Causin’ An Overlap-sation Situation

Mr. Chi-city is back with another hilarious video, this time fighting for the right of middle/lower America. It’s about his parking ticket with a very descriptive, detailed analysis of the situation, with some camera work showing his fighting for us on the phone and at the courthouse. Mr. C hasn’t failed to produce something that’s funny, quotable, and memorable…and he succeeds to the highest degree in this video. So check it out.
