    It was 1999. Nickelodeon was going into a downhill slump. Shows you grew up with such as Rocko's Modern Life, Doug, and Ren and Stimpy were still around, but the shows were cancelled, so there were no new episodes. New shows like Catdog (okay, so this is nostalgic to ME) and Spongebob made people yearn for classic nickelodeon.

    But then sometime in the summer of 1999, Nickelodeon began celebrating its 20th anniversary. Most of the summer was pretty much dedicated to Nickelodeon in the 80s and early to mid 90s. Most of the time they played the first episodes of popular Nickelodeon shows (however most of them weren't technically the first episodes; they didn't air the pilot episodes), and even showed some long-gone Nick shows from the 80s, such as YCDTOTV. And yes, even some of the old doo-wop/at the drive-in themed bumpers.

    Sadly, it only lasted a month or two. But for Nick's 25th anniversary in 2004, Nickelodeon aired a similar block with shows such as Rocko's Modern Life, Ren and Stimpy, YCDTOTV, etc etc.

    On Sundays Nick will air "Nick Rewind". Which is pretty much the
    same thing as the other blocks. Stimpy, classic bumpers and all.

    Everyone knows Nickelodeon sucks nowadays, but they DO care about us retro junkies, at least I hope.

            So far, the Nick Rewind has been crap. It should be called "Nicktoon Rewind" the way that it's going

              ^ totally agreed.


              if it's called "Nick Rewind" it show play shows to like Salute Your Shorts, Kenan and Kel, etc.


              They should have Nick Rewind for an hour then Nicktoon Rewind for an hour. A 2 hour block deicated to Retro Junkies.

                "Nick Rewind" would be a good channel.It would be the classic nick channel.That would be so cool.

                  I don't even want to talk about Nick's 20TH anniversary I didn't even see it. I try to think what was I doing around the time in 99 but I can't remember I don't know how I had miss that, if everyone has the anniversary on tape let me know or could you let me know what I had missed back in99

                    I wish Nickelodeon would come out with a new channel devoted to their live action shows from the 80's to the early 90's. If they can give us a GaS(Games & Sports)channel then why not a Live Action channel?. There are so many shows I would love to see again like:

                    Hey Dude!
                    Parker Lewis
                    Are You Afraid of the Dark?
                    The Adventures of Pete & Pete
                    Kenan & Kel

                    and so many others.

                      There have been some talk on a Classic Nick Channel for some time now. You would think they would put that into consideration by now.

                              nor did i, as i no longer have cable.
                              which funnely enough was due to my dislike for nick after 1999.
                              that and the cable shows are just self endulgent crap with pretty boys and plastic girls.
                              sad to see such a great channel go to crap like nick did, but then again if it wernt for that great sites like this might not have been made. :roll:

                                          getting rid of its tv shows can indicate a new channel coming soon...

                                          ...hopefully.
