Has early 2000s nostalgia already hit the internet?:

Alot of people know that the 90s nostalgia boom has hit the internet since 2011 and the arrival of The '90s Are All That, However I can't hope but notice that alot of people have begun to be nostalgic for the early 2000s, as of late 2012. When certain people on Facebook and other media (YouTube) mention classic Nickelodeon or classic Disney Channel, they'll mention the old SpongeBob episodes, Drake and Josh, Invader Zim, Lizzie Mc Guire and Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends (They're not bad shows but just examples). Whereas a while back, shows like Rugrats and Hey Arnold were the shows that got the most attention during the nostalgia craze (They still do but seem to be overshadowed by the shows mentioned above).

Is it possible that early 2000s nostalgia has come early, or is it just me?

The nostalgia cycle is still located in the 90's. Maybe a few people are jumping the gun.

In 6, 7 years it'll be the early 2000's, definitely.

There was nostalgia for the early 90s, to an extent, back in the early 2000s. The decades tend to bleed into each other. I'm a child of the early 2000s yet I remember quite a few 90s shows fondly - CatDog, Rugrats, Hey Arnold...

If you look on Facebook, few of the 2000s shows are as popular as the 90s stuff.

In the 70's it was the 50's, in the 80's it was the 60's, in the 90's it was the 70's, and in the 00's it was the 80's. Now it's the 90's.

I wonder what people were nostalgic for in the 50s? Or 20s even...

[up] The 50's everyone was happy the 40s were over.

40s was WW2, that was on the mind more than anything.

30's everyone was nostalgic for anything from before.

the 20s everyone(rich at least) seemed to like acting like royalty and showing off, so could be almost any time period.

I mean, which decades were people nostalgic for in the 50s or 20s? I know there was a huge Dixieland revival in the 50s, so I could assume people were nostalgic for the 20s then.

It looks like early 2000s nostalgia to me. Because this stuff didn't arrive until the 2000s here. Blame RTÉ.

Yes, it has. I've seen people nostalgic for Lizzie Mc Guire, Jake Long: American Dragon, Xiaolin Showdown, and other shows that really should not be fondly remembered.

Why should these things not be fondly remembered, exactly?

It's almost entirely in the eye of the beholder. There are exceptions, like, I know someone who insists the original Thundercats show had animation on par with Disney's 2000s stuff like Kim Possible. That is most certainly not true, but that doesn't mean that they are wrong to prefer the original Thundercats.

Also, some early 2000s DVD sets are starting to show up. In the States, you can get the Weekenders DV Ds, and a Danny Phantom complete set is getting released in a week.

This is pretty much all explained in Two Decades Behind, but instead of "writers are making a throw-back to their childhood" it's "Internet users are coming-of-age and reminiscing about their childhood."

Still just awesome like that
It really is basically that a lot of young people use the internet, and more and more people who are younger and younger are using it as time goes on. Just look at how many people we have on this site who are 15 and under, for example. And, of course, since everyone on the internet is a drama queen, they all gotta be yearning for YE OLDEN DAYS OF YORE BACK WHEN I WAS A KID EVEN THOUGH I STILL AM A KID...

I'm still not sure what's worth being nostalgic over from the last decade, particularly the early part. Post 9/11 paranoia? Music-wise it was like Just Before the End for rock music (in my biased, anti-emo opinion anyway), last time I can remember listening to the radio and having the songs I liked outnumber the songs I disliked was around 2002 I suppose. Fashion-wise I think the whole baggy pants thing still bled over from the 90's.

I think the 1990s will be fondly remembered as a time of post-Cold War optimism for most people. I mean, for a huge part of the world, it was the first time in generations that the threat of global war wasn't an immediate concern.

9/11 was not the only thing that happened back then, and no offense but it had little effect on me and many others.

basically it was 90's culture 2.0, which i liked a lot. along with the video games, shows and movies that came out back then.

Xaolin Showdown was a damn awesome thing, and ya' know what oldie assholes, ...every generation says that about a generation after their childhood that just became old.

Geezers say about the 60's and 70's "If you remember 'em, you weren't there", so what did the 90's do? It celebrated the 70's, just as the last decade celebrated the very overrated, ridiculously conservative, every show is a bad toy commercial 80's.

Now lo and behold arrogant 80's-not late 90's peeps are getty huffy about people who might actually have paid attention to stuff like Digimon or Jackie Chan Adventures, the Nintendo64 and Dreamcast, Invader Zim, and good Spongebob. Same deal "You weren't there!"

It's ridiculous.

Nothing wrong with a bit of nostalgia.

I remember all those things from that time in fact I had both a DC and an N64, very good times.

Sometimes nostalgia isn't completely inaccurate.

Although I once heard somewhere that Millennials (the typical "90s Kids") are generally more nostalgic than past generations. So maybe it's justified? I don't know for sure, but it's a thought.

My theory as to the title post is that nostalgia just doesn't happen on the dot. It comes and goes as it pleases.

While watching a video of mid-90s Cartoon Network commercials I was shocked to see an ad for a "Best of the 80s" album! The decade had been over for five years and already there was a market for 80s nostalgia.

In the early 2000s a lot of sites celebrating 80s Nick, whose opinions were "It went downhill when the Nicktoons came along, " featured entries for shows like The Littl' Bits and Clarissa Explains It All, both of which debuted in the 90s.

I don't think people are nostalgic for the early 2000s necessarily, I mean people have been nostalgic for the 90s for years (as the previous poster said) but erroneously labeling it as 80s nostalgia. Also I think a lot of those shows were cultural holdovers from the 90s.

Ed, Edd n Eddy, Sponge Bob Square Pants, Rocket Power, and Courage the Cowardly Dog, while these all debuted in the 90s, are culturally not really 90s shows.

And aside from those, 90s shows that did last into the next decade were CatDog, Rugrats, Hey Arnold!, The Wild Thornberrys, Dexter's Laboratory, Johnny Bravo, The Powerpuff Girls...
