    You know how much we love a #ThrowbackThursday here at the Marie Claire office and this week’s comes courtesy of Nickelodeon who have announced that their new 90s nostalgia programming block will be launched next week. Yep, as of the 5th of October you can watch your favourite shows and reminisce about a time when life was easier – because you were a kid – and TV was, undoubtedly, cheesier.

    Shows that will be included on ‘The Splat’ (a reference to Nickelodeon’s orange logo) are: All That, The Angry Beavers, Are You Afraid Of The Dark?, CatDog, Clarissa Explains It All, Hey Arnold!, Hey Dude, Kenan & Kel, The Ren & Stimpy Show, Legends of the Hidden Temple, Rocko’s Modern Life, Rugrats, Salute Your Shorts and The Wild Thornberrys.

    According to Nickelodeon’s Vice President, Keith Dawkins, the shows that feature in the run have been, in part, determined by the audience, basically those clever campaigning types who really pushed for their favourites. And we’re pretty sure it’s going to be a big hit. The only show we’re really disappointed that didn’t make the cut was Sabrina The Teenage Witch. (Seriously, HOW did that happen?)

    Nostalgia is big news, in fact, just last week a ‘Good Burger’ sketch featuring Kenan and Kel was released and it quickly went viral. In the skit, which was filmed for a chat show, Kel has to wait 30 seconds before the audience stop applauding so he can deliver his first line and if that tells us anything it’s that the appetite for 90s shows is still pretty high.
