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)
- The Rugrats
- AAAHH! Real Monsters
- The Ren and Stimpy Show
- Hey Arnold!
- The Wild Thornberrys (Tim Curry is in this show!)
- The Angry Beavers
- Rocket Power
- As Told By Ginger
- My Life as a Teenage Robot
- The Fairly Odd Parents (I almost wrote the Fairly OodParents for all my Doctor Who fans)
- Danny Phantom
- Action League Now!
- Invader Zim
- The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius
- All Grown Up (The very bad Rugrats sequel…)
Nicktoons ~ 2005-2012
- Avatar: The Last Airbender (A must watch show. the sequel airs this Saturday!!!!)
- Planet Sheen
- Angelica and Susie’s Preschool Dayz
- The Mighty Bee!
- Tak and the Power of Juju
- The X’s

- Back at the Barnyard
- The Penguins of Madagascar
- Fan Boy and Chum Chum
- T.U.F.F Puppy
- Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness
- 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.
