''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'', ''{{Series/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 ''Series/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?
