Memories of Nicktoons

One of most nostalgic television channels aimed for kids in the history of television is Nickelodeon!

By 1991, the cartoon founders of this studio swept the nation with Doug, The Ren and Stimpy Show and Rugrats. These three cartoons formed the chain knows as Nicktoons.

In 1993 the fourth popular television show Rocko's Modern Life became as popular as the original three.

Three years later, Nickelodeon Studios stopped producing more episodes of Doug, The Ren andStimpy Show and Rocko's Modern Life; however, more episodes of Rugrats were made and the studio added three new shows: Aaahh! Real Monsters, KaBlam! and Hey Arnold.

Between 1997 and 2000, The Angry Beavers, The Wild Thornberrys and CatDog were produced.

The Rugrats franchise kept going and they even made two films, The Rugrats Movie and Rugrats in Paris: The Movie. These did very well at the box office.

It seemed like Rugrats would be Nickelodeon's only recognizable icon but that didn't last long when in May 1, 1999, Spongebob SquarePants was born and soon became Nick's highest rated kid's show.

Today Sponge Bob has become Nickelodeon's biggest gem and the studio has produced a total of 262 episodes.

Other newer shows that are currently popular are The Fairly OddParents, Jimmy Neutron and Avatar: the Last Airbender.

Despite the fact that Nickelodeon rarely broadcasts the Nicktoons that started it all, they are still remembered today for their humor and wit.
