A television network founded in 1977 that was aimed mostly towards the younger / teen audience.

The prime of this network really hit it's peak in the early - late 90's, with amazing nicktoons, game shows, cartoons, and live action programs such as: The Adventures of Pete & Pete, Kenan and Kel, GAS, Double Dare, Salute Your Shorts, Wild and Crazy Kids, Rocko's Modern Life, Doug, and the Ren & Stimpy Show, to name a few. Kids of all ages enjoyed the network, and had the time of their lives visiting the official Nickelodeon Studios in Orlando Florida, where they can watch these programs live and even participate in the shows.

In the late 90's, something unpredictable happened. The Producers of Nickelodeon decided "Hey, these kids are having too much fun. Let's decide to fuck with their minds and ruin their childhood, and introduce a load of bullshit to the next generation of kids!" They then went on to cancel all the brilliant shows that was once the heart and soul of the network, and replace them with garbage "up to date" shows such as Zoey 101, Unfabulous, Naked Brothers Band, Dance on Sunset, and Avatar. These new garbage programs go absolutely no where and usually cancel after 1 season.

(in 2001, Nickelodeon made an awesome show and everybody thought it was making a come back. That show was Invader Zim. But to nobody's surprise, it was canceled after very few episodes because it was "too funny" and kids were "enjoying it")

The network and company itself had officially died in 2004, with the closing of Nickelodeon Studios in Orlando Florida.

RIP Nickelodeon 1990 - 2004

Used to be a classic favorite by all, it canceled all of it's good shows such as Welcome Freshmen, Salute Your Shorts, Rocko, Ren & Stimpy, and Nick Arcade. They started to aim towrds the sterotypical children that were spawning from somewhere. They began covering the new "pop" (aka. crap, homo-gays, %*&*) groups that were spawning from the same place as the sterotypical children. They struck back with Invader Zim, but was canceled because the type of humor flew right over the little kids heads. It now hold the personal record by about every person in America above the age of 13 as the worst television station and ahould be plagued with head cancer.
Nickelodeon REALLY sucks now.

-Me, 1990.

A channel that has sold out to the max. Used to have great shows like salute your shorts, pete and pete, and doug. Now they have these stupid mindless cartoons that would put a kid with adhd to sleep.
6 year old kid: Nickelodeon is my favorite channel!

Me: My young friend, you shall never know.

A now horrible kids channel. It started off pretty good with Ren and Stimpy and Rocko's modern Life (even Angry beavers wasn't all shit) but promptly canceled all their good shows and started to play towards f*cking 6-year olds. Then came Spongebob and it almost completely died. It made a brief (but amazing) comeback with Invader Zim, but, of course, they cancelled it, leading to its utter doom. Now, unless they bring some good shows into their pathetic schedule, it wil soon be cancelled as well.
'Nuff said.

An Uber-retarded network that only exists to cancell its last few entertaining shows, and blatatntly mock animation.
Nick Executive:This shows ratings are off the chart, cancel it immediantly.

A television network station that once had spark and fun. Used to be made up of shows such as Rocko, Hey Arnold, Legends of the Hidden Temple, Are You Afraid of the Dark, and Clarissa Explains It All, just to name a few. This network has downgraded itself with "new and improved" clean innuendo shows such as Spongebob Squarepants and Fairly Oddparents. Tries to redeem itself with "TeeNick" network, but has not been successful. On the brink of being off the expanded cable network.
Nickelodeon is on the brink of extinction.

A great Kid's TV Channel until the mid-90's when it began to suck. It had supa-fly shows such as Clarissa Explains It All, The Adventures Of Pete and Pete, Doug, Salute Your Shorts, Ren and Stimpy, Rocko's Modern Life, Ahh! Real Monsters, Legends of the Hidden Temple, Figure it Out and etc. Then they started to slowly decline as they kept replacing the cast of All That, made a new version of Double Dare called Double Dare 2000. Their good cartoons were taken off the air and their ok cartoons such as Rugrats, got worse and worse. They occasionly had a good show like Invader Zim but was cancelled probably cuz faux-punks who shop at Hot Topic started wearing Gir and Zim pins and T-shirts. Now they just suck and show crappy shows such as ChalkZone, Fairly Oddparents, Zoey 101, and Unfabulous.
Man, i miss Old School Nick.
