''Hop on the big orange couch, you are now [=SNICKing=]...''

'''SNICK''' ([[FunWithAcronyms short for]] Saturday Night Nickelodeon) was a programming block on Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} that ran from 1992 to 2004. This block ran from 8pm to 10pm Saturdays, making it Nickelodeon's first foray into primetime programming. This block was reserved to Nickelodeon cream-of-the-crop programming/premieres and new shows. The first four shows to air during this block were ''Series/ClarissaExplainsItAll'', ''Roundhouse'', ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'' and ''AreYouAfraidOfTheDark''. The "big orange couch" served as the mascot of the block.

SNICK was revamped in 1999 as the SNICK House. This iteration saw the block hosted by [[Series/AllThat Nick Cannon]] from a party house with special celebrity guests and musical performances. There were also kid-friendly music videos that occasionally aired.

The final version of SNICK was the SNICK On-Air Dare that was hosted by the new ''Series/AllThat'' cast in 2002. The ''All That'' cast would be "dared" to do outrageous stunts that included bobbing for apples in a toilet, being covered with raw eggs, and other gross hi-jinks. This lasted until 2004, when [[Creator/TeenNick TEENick Saturday Night]] [[SpiritualSuccessor took over the slot]].

SNICK is fondly remembered as being one of Nickelodeon's best programming blocks ever and it launched many beloved shows, such as ''TheSecretWorldOfAlexMack'', ''All That'' and ''TheAmandaShow''. The Saturday Night kids' programming template has been [[FollowTheLeader replicated by Cartoon Network and the Disney Channel]] but never duplicated.

As of 2011, three classic Snick shows (''Series/AllThat'', ''Series/KenanAndKel'', and ''Series/ClarissaExplainsItAll'') are being aired in reruns as part of a [=TeenNick=] block called "Series/The90sAreAllThat", which features the classic Big Orange Couch prominently in its ads. Can you say SpiritualSuccessor?
