[VIDEO] The Orange Years: The Rise of Nickelodeon
A documentary about the rise of the kid friendly juggernaut that was Nickelodeon. Being a kid of the 90’s, Nickelodeon was everything to me, with all the original cartoons that had a grip over families. Rugrats was grainy, kinda slow but an amazing tale of being a baby that understands the world better than the adults. “Ah! Real Monsters,” funny little monsters in a school in the sewer learning to scare people. “All That” was kid SNL which spawned the hit show Kennan and Kel. Dude, fucking “Are You Afraid of The Dark?” Well, are ya?
The slime, the movies that came from the hit shows and the toys, Nickelodeon was an incredible new moment in time for kids. It’s funny that 90’s Nickelodeon is getting a documentary, I don’t feel old as a pair of tortoise nuts. They might as well do a documentary of an actual Nickelodeon.
