A channel that used to reign supreme in the world of cartoons, but is now complete trash. If Nickelodeon revived classics such as Hey Arnold!, Rugrats, Doug, Kenan and Kel, All That, etc. Nickelodeon might--just MIGHT have a chance to redeem itself from the crap it has become.
Hey Arnold
Old SpongeBob

^^Are a few of the many shows that made Nickelodeon great.

A TV channel that's mainly aimed towards children and teens that launched in 1979. It has different programming blocks, such as Nick Jr., Nick at Nite and Snick/TEENick.

I've seen other definitions of Nickelodeon on here, but all people seem to do is bash it and say stuff like "Nickeldeon sucks now!". Well, I'm not going to bash it here. It just seems that so many people jump on the "Nickelodeon sucks now!" bandwagon. I had no idea that the newer Nickelodeon was so hated until I started looking up Nickelodeon on the Internet. I mean, while I agree that the older Nickelodeon is better overall, there's still some good shows on there, such as SpongeBob SquarePants and Fairly OddParents and even Catscratch!

Seriously, you guys probably just bash the newer Nickelodeon because you just grew up and grew out of Nickelodeon. It's really stupid how you guys say stuff like "Only stupid kids watch Nickelodeon now."! The kids who are growing with Nickelodeon now will probably say the same thing about how Nickelodeon sucks now when they get older.

Now, I know how some of you guys grew up with shows like Kenan and Kel, Doug, Salute Your Shorts, Rocko's Modern Life, All That, Hey Arnold and Clarissa Explains It All. Take a show like Kenan and Kel or Rocko's Modern Life, for example. If those two shows wouldn't premiere until this year, 2008, I can bet that most of you guys would probably be bashing them. And if shows like Catscratch, Zoey 101, The Mighty B and even The Naked Brothers Band and Mr. Meaty would premiere in 1995 or something, I can bet they would be recieving much more praise now! So, please, think about that before you say stupid things like "Today's Nickelodeon are making kids stupid" or "I can't let my kids watch the crap they put on Nickelodeon today".

Personally, I'm 21 years old and while I don't watch Nickelodeon nearly as much as I used to when I was younger, I still like a few shows that's on there now, like SpongeBob SquarePants, Fairly OddParents and Catscratch, as I mentioned earlier.
Some random person who's in their late teens or 20's: I can't let my kids watch the crap they put out on Nickelodeon now!

Me: Why not? They can watch it if they like it. You probably just grew out of Nickelodeon.

invented around 1863, a piano designed to play music by itself
The only sound on the deserted street came from the nickelodeon inside the saloon.

A 1930's to 1950's (roughly)expression meaning a juke box, which was a machine usually located in diners or bars that played popular music singles on small 45 records. Most were large, streamlined, stylish speaker boxes with neon lighg bands and chrome. So called because of the company that made them, and the price of a song was a nickel.
Hey momma, lets fire up the ol' nickelodeon. I'm "In The Mood" (Popular song title of the time. Instumental "Big Band" song by Glen Miller.)

A dumbass channel aimed at suburban rich white protestant bush-supporting children. Only suburban and rich kids that are spoiled can ever get on air unless they give free trips for the "poor" children and then shows the poor children on the tv to humilate them.
Rocko's Modern Life was the shiz, as well as all of their other shows which showed alot of ooze and other sick stuff featuring a good variety of people. Now only white people are show on it unless it's some black person that is known to be "hip" and "ghetto" like.

The channel for kids ages 5-17. It has shows such as spongebob, fairly odd parents and icarly. It also aired classics such as rugrats doug kablaam ahh real monsters and catdog. It is full of fun for most ages. There is an orange loge that has been changed over teh years.
Nickelodeon is the best channel ever.
