Old Nickelodeon Shows



Anyone who knows me knows that I am obsessed with old school Nickelodeon shows from the 90s. I wouldn't consider myself a TV junkie, but I used to watch a lot of TV shows whenever it was not nice outside. For upstate New York, that occurs quite frequently.

I wish that networks would pick up these old shows and re-air them. Can we start a petition somehow? I know GAS has picked up a lot of game shows (i.e. Double Dare, Legends of the Hidden Temple, Guts, Nick Arcade) and Noggin has All That and Kenan and Kel, but can't they air some of the better shows? My brother and I both have Salute Your Shorts and Are you Afriad of the Dark? We bought those from bootlegs on eBay. They're amazing, but they have some difficulties playing.

And remember Stick Stickley? When he used to spin around the wheel and we would get a shot to choose the next show on? So simple yet so amazing! Remember his address? My friend Ang does. "Write to me, Stick Stickley..."

Anyway, I think we should petition these back on the air.

HOLY CRAP! A FELLOW FAN! I love all of these shows. And we definitely should sign a petition, because allot of the shows now kind of...really suck. Quite badly. Your the coolest!
