The 80's, 90's, and 00's are All That.


Nostalgia can be a powerful thing. For almost as long as online social networking has been a thing, online petitions have been thrown up in order to convince Nickelodeon — considered by many a fan to have been in a Dork Age for some time — to resurrect its old shows in reruns.

As you could tell by this page, it worked in a way no one expected. Nick dusted off the Big Orange Couch, gave Kenan Thompson (now grown-up and a cast member of Saturday Night Live) a seat on it, and launched the block, then known as The '90s Are All That, which airs on TeenNick after the primetime hours. Essentially, this block is to TeenNick what Nick @ Nite is for the flagship Nickelodeon channel, only if they showed classic Nick series.

In 2015, the block was rebranded as The Splat, with a new longer running time and more variety in its programs. Two years later, the block changed its name again to NickSplat in order to strengthen the connection to Nickelodeon. In 2019, the entire block rebranded, again, to NickRewind and is focusing on not just 90's shows but shows from the 80's and 00's.


NickRewind has a very active online presence, as it encourages viewers to log in to their Facebook and Twitter pages, note and embrace the resulting memes (#ThingsClarissaDidntExplain, #WheresKel, #NowiGetRocko, etc.), and frequent pollings on favorite shows and related topics. In 2018, NickSplat was given a channel on VRV that housed a rotating lineup of shows.

Not to be confused with Nickelodeon Rewind, which was a brand Nickelodeon used during the Turn of the Millennium for their 90's classic shows released on DVD and on-demand, and es even a short-lived programming block on the main Nickelodeon channel.

The many shows that have aired on the block include the following:

As Nickelodeon currently holds the airing rights to Power Rangers, the block showed reruns of Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers as part of the "Mighty Morphin' Weekend" event celebrating the show's 20th anniversary, making it the first show on the block not considered 90s Nick as it aired on Fox Kids at the time.
