Nickelodeon Officially Announces "The Splat" '90s TV Programming Block: Details!
According to the network’s official release, “Nickelodeon will throw back to the ‘90s every day with the launch of ‘The Splat,’ a new multiscreen content destination spanning television, seven social media platforms, and a dedicated website aggregating the most loved Nick content from the 1990s and beyond.”
Instead of being its own channel, as many previously speculated when The Splat mysteriously appeared on Twitter this month, the new addition will be an eight-hour block of ‘90s TV programming on TeenNick from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. ET.
The Splat will also have a fan-driven website, an emoji keyboard with custom ‘90s emojis, stickers, and GIFs, and a big social media presence for fans to get involved.
So what ‘90s shows can you expect when The Splat premieres on Monday, Oct. 5?
There will be both animated and live-action favorites, including: 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.
There will also be specials like Oct. 12’s Rugrats Reptar Takeover, which will feature the best Reptar-themed Rugrats episodes. And look out for Hey Arnold! Live from the Stoop on Oct. 19, which will feature stoop-centric episodes of everyone’s favorite football head.
