@RiotDemon@shinyhat Legends of the Hidden Temple was apparently pretty crappy to compete on.
The kids on the teams didn’t really know each other and got paired randomly, and it wasn’t really “winnable” unless they wanted to let a team win. They could always just have a guy jump out and grab a kid to end what could otherwise be a successful run.
‘Legends of the Hidden Temple’ and ‘Are You Afraid of the Dark?’ were some of my childhood favorites. ‘The Wild Thornberrys’ was a runner-up. I think my all-time favorite Nick show, however, remains SpongeBob SquarePants!
@LaVikinga@RiotDemon I think by “classic Nick Show” they meant within the first few years of Nickolodeon Studios making their own shows (which started in 1990). These were the shows that earned the brand enough the money and reputation to keep it afloat (prior to 1990 nick was a relatively unknown station that didn’t really make any of its own shows).
pete & pete definitely. still have the theme song by polaris on my ipod and have on occasion considered my own petunia tattoo
of the choices, salute your shorts would be my runner up but i also loved hey dude, clarissa explains it all, and the SNICK programming. (all that, are you afraid of the dark, & roundhouse being my favorites in that category.)
when i was younger it was PBS all the way (mathnet and ghostwriter were my faves) but nickelodeon was great for that in between phase of too old for PBS and too young for “regular” tv. i even had a subscription to the magazine
It’s amazing how many of these shows I know considering they are clearly after my childhood, and before that of my children. Many I had completely forgot about until they were brought up. Some I specifically remember for being favorites of nieces and nephews, but I can only conclude that occasionally my channel surfing stopped on some of these on my on volition.
