Old Nick vs New Nick

Any 90s kid would say this this is not even a battle since old Nickelodeon is where it’s at. But then some good things came from the new Nickelodeon like The Legend of Korra that airs this Saturday. But how does one really compare the old vs the new like the Nostalgic Critic does?

Old Nick ~  1991-2004 Cartoons (this was the time I stopped watching Nick)

  1. The Rugrats
  2. Spongebob
  3. Doug
  4. KaBlam!
  5. CatDog
  6. AAAHH! Real Monsters
  7. The Ren and Stimpy Show
  8. Hey Arnold!
  9. The Wild Thornberrys (Tim Curry is in this show!)
  10. The Angry Beavers
  11. Rocket Power
  12. Pelswick
  13. As Told By Ginger
  14. My Life as a Teenage Robot
  15. The Fairly Odd Parents (I almost wrote the Fairly OodParents for all my Doctor Who fans)
  16. Danny Phantom
  17. ChalkZone
  18. Action League Now!
  19. Invader Zim
  20. The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius
  21. All Grown Up (The very bad Rugrats sequel…)

Nicktoons ~ 2005-2012

Some of these should be in the other list but this was the best one I could find.

  1. Avatar: The Last Airbender (A must watch show. the sequel airs this Saturday!!!!)
  2. Catstrach
  3. Planet Sheen
  4. Angelica and Susie’s Preschool Dayz
  5. The Mighty Bee!
  6. Tak and the Power of Juju
  7. The X’s
  8. El Tigre: the Adventures of Manny Rivera
  9. Wayside
  10. Back at the Barnyard
  11. The Penguins of Madagascar
  12. Fan Boy and Chum Chum
  13. T.U.F.F Puppy
  14. Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness
  15. The Legend of Korra

Now there is a huge difference between these two colons. First of all, the first colon 19 out of 21, 90%, of the shows were traditional cartoons and they took over Saturday mornings and the channel as a whole. The second colon, 8 out of 15, 53%, of the shows were traditional cartoons however they are now pushed onto their own channel were they keep replaying the same two shows (Spongebob and The Penguins).

But that is not all

Majority of Nickelodeon now is mostly live action and no Slim.

The Old nick was full of laughs, messiness, lessons to learn all the time.

Now most of the live action shows, they just yell, dance randomly and hurt each other trying to make people laugh.

It’s hard to say and this argument can go on forever. But as you can see I prefer old Nick. I’ll make another post talking about Live Action shows on nick.
