Nickelodeon brings back 90s favorites with "The '90s Are All That" programming block

March 11, 2011 11:27 am CST 

This fall, it's going to be cool to watch Nickelodeon again. They're pulling out fan favorites from their arsenal of original shows for a new nighttime programming block that includes shows like "Clarissa Explains it All," "All That," and "Salute Your Shorts."

"The '90s Are All That" will air from midnight to 2am (ET) beginning in the fall. Along with "Clarissa Explains it All," "All That," and "Salute Your Shorts,' it'll feature a rotating block of shows including "The Adventures of Pete & Pete," "Rugrats," "Rocket Power," "The Amanda Show," and "Kenan & Kel."

Nickelodeon made the surprising move in response to overwhelming demand from fans who want to re-live their favorite childhood shows. '90's Nick programming has 9 million fans on Facebook alone.

"There is an entire generation of young people who literally grew up on these great 1990s' series, and many of them have been vocal about wanting to see and experience these shows again," said Keith Dawkins, Senior VP and General Manager for Nicktoons and TeenNick.

"TeenNick caters to the older segment of the Nick audience, so it's the perfect place to reconnect these shows to their original fans and introduce them to younger viewers for the very first time," Dawkins continued.

Not only will fans get to see their favorites on Nick once again, they'll be able to vote for which shows they want to see using social media like Facebook and Twitter.

More shows and movies of the decade are also set to be acquired by the network and featured on "The 90's Are All That." Can we suggest some "Are You Afraid of the Dark?"?
