    i agree, however, it would seem that Rocket power was quite popular, as i used to get seriously annoyed at how well it did against shows during watch your own week. (not against shows like sabrina, sister sister, saved by the bell of course)

    this can only mean one of things
    1. that it was popular, for some ridiculous reason
    2. that Rocket power fans are by nature faster hot line dialers
    3.that Nickeoldeon fixed watch your own week

    Disclaimer: 3 is not an option : ) xox


    I liked Rocket Power but I don't remember ever voting for it by phone. I'd vote online if I could. The Wild Thornberries was good, but I there needed to be more variation in the plot. Clasky Ksupo's cartoons were definitely not the worst though. I liked almost every show on Nick but there were much worse shows on at that time and before it.
    Recipe for nostalgia: Mix 80's and 90's culture. Stir in some good memories. Add a dash of reflection. Mixture should now taste bittersweet. Shake well and enjoy!

          First off, I wanna say that this thread made me LOL (The Rocko/missing teeth comment, Mario Bros. gif, Squidward's "unsure" face, Carlton a PR) But getting back on subject:

          Fifteen (soooo boring, esp. when my sister made me watch it!)
          Hey Dude
          The Tomorrow People
          The Mystery Files of Shelby Woo
          EVERY nicktoon made or released between Hey Arnold and SpongeBob (Rocket Power, CatDog, Kablam, etc.)
          Cousin Skeeter
          Figure it Out
          Clarissa Explains it All (looking back, this show was such a bore; I only watched it because of her room. Plus I HATED Ferguson, the redheaded spore, AND I actually prefer "Sabrina" to this, crazy as that sounds)
          Garfield: "My car is so old, that it's insured against theft, flood, fire and dinosaur stampedes!"

          Garfield: "The local bus transit is doing their part to help with the weight loss program: each year, they stop further and further away from the curb!

            I didn't care too much for "The Wild Thornberrys" because of all the episodes being too long to sit through.

                I don[t think the Wild Thornberry episodes were broken up into two parts like most of the other Nicktoon shows. It was a full 30 minutes. As Told By Ginger was pretty much done in the same fashion.

                  That goes to show the attention span of Nickelodeon's viewers.

                    I never really liked The Wild Thornberries or Animorphs...I'd change the channel whenever they came on.

                      Nick News
                      Some Martian show, I can't remember.
                      And Wild Thorn Berrys was boring.

                        I hated Rocket Power and Spongebob...Of course I just grew up during that time, so there's probably some others

                          I enjoyed Nicktoons that were more than one cartoon long, man. They always entertained me no matter what. Here is a list of known Nicktoons that are what I'm talking about:

                          - The Ren & Stimpy Show
                          - Rugrats
                          - Doug
                          - Rocko's Modern Life
                          - AAAAHHH!!! Real Monsters!
                          - Hey Arnold!
                          - Kablam!
                          - The Angry Beavers
                          - CatDog
                          - Oh Yeah! Cartoons
                          - Toons From Planet Orange
                          - Spongebob Squarepants
                          - Rocket Power

                            Allen Strange-I thought this show was weird.

                            Animorphs-I was in middle school when the books came out and I watched the show and I thought it was horrible, then again, I never read the books.

                            Catdog-It was one of the most pointless cartoons that I have ever seen. Then again, I was 14 when it came out.

                            Of course around 1998 or 1999, I stopped watching Nickelodeon since I outgrew it. The only show I watch on Nick today is Avatar the Last Airbender. I like the old Spongebob episodes but I haven't watched him in a while. Probably because they play the show too damn much.

                              I remember disliking "Roundhouse" a lot. I also didn't care much for "Ren and Stimpy" because I thought it was really gross, but I started watching it on Spike TV when they brought it back.

                              I don't really remember "Allen Strange" or "Animorphs". So I must not have watched them.

                              Does anyone remember "Special Delivery"? It wasn't really a show, it was more like random kids movies that they would show. I remember hating all of those movies. That was way early 90's if I remember correctly. Possibly even late 80's.

                                Shows I didn't like? Hmm..let's see...*pulls up Wikipedia to help me remember*
                                Aaah Real Monsters, Caitlin's Way (anybody remember this one? I hated it), Cousin Skeeter, The Mystery Files of Shelly Woo, Nick News, Romeo!,Animorphs,etc...

                                I'm a child of the '90s (born in 1990, whoohoo!) so I do remember Nickelodeon before it started to suck (which I think was around the time that they started having shows like Zoey 101, Unfabulous, etc..).

                                  How come people are putting Invader Zim up here? That's not a 90s show, it's an early 2000s show (I know, I thought it was 90s as well, but I looked it up and found out it first came out in 2001.)

                                  Anyway, shows that didn't appeal to me are:

                                  Mystery Files of Shelby Woo
                                  Cousin Skeeter
                                  My Brother and Me
                                  Wild Thornberries
                                  CatDog
                                  Journey of Allen Strange
                                  Rocket Power (Except Tweeter or whatever his name is. He's funny.)
                                  "Did I ever tell you how much I like ants huh? Especially fried in a subtle blend of mech fluid and grated gears?"
                                  -Rampage, Beast Wars

                                      CatDog was pretty stupid.

                                        Why are so many people against "The journey of Allen Strange" and "The wild Thornberrys"? It's been ten years since I watched "The journey of Allen Strange", but I remember liking it back then. And I sure liked "The wild Thornberrys" too. I even watched that show after I turned twenty! And I also liked "As told by Ginger", even though many people here seem to be against that one too.

                                        I have to agree with you though, that "CatDog" was a weird show. I watched some episodes, but I never got into it like I got into "Rugrats", "Hey Arnold!", "The Wild Thornberrys" and "As told by Ginger". I also thought "Cousin Skeeter" was rather bad. And yeah, "Ren & Stimpy" was too gross. Maybe I would appreciate that show more now, but I sure didn't appreciate it as a teenager. I also had a hard time with "Rocko's modern life", which was another gross show.

                                          Hmmm...probably Nick News, Cousin Skeeter, and Ren and Stimpy for me.

                                          I know a lot of people are against Klasky Csupo cartoons here, but I liked all of them: Rugrats, Wild Thornberries, Rocket Power, As Told By Ginger, Ahh! Real Monsters. You name it!
                                          For some reason I really like the animation and the concepts of these shows. Loved them as a child, and I still love all of them (well, except for A!!RM).
                                          If i'm too young, maybe you're too old
