Sadly, early Nickelodeon staple “Doug” has been owned by Disney since the late 90s, meaning it won’t be joining the rest of its class anytime soon.
Classics like “Aaahh!!! Real Monsters” (which was featured in a preview trailer for The Splat),
“The Adventures of Pete and Pete” (which was far ahead of its time), “KaBlam!,” “The Secret World of Alex Mack,” “Rocket Power,” and early Nick stalwart “Weinerville” are also not on the line-up.
Though some classic Nick game shows are returning, many core game shows aren’t including ones that cemented the abundant use of slime that gives the new channel its name like “Double Dare,” “Guts,” and “What Would You Do?”
Also missing are modest hits (they had two or three seasons) “The Mystery Files of Shelby Woo” and “The Journey of Allen Strange.”
The Splat will run as a nightly block a’la Adult Swim on TeenNick, featuring the above shows along with old Nickelodeon commercials and even bring back Nick or Treat for Halloween , inviting viewers to call in to a hosted segment, hopefully hosted by a popsicle stick.
According to an interview with AV Club, TeenNick SVP Keith Dawkins said that shows not currently on the lineup may make it to air if given the demand, which leads to The Splat’s app, which will allow viewers to vote for the shows they want to see and provide added “user experience” and “content.”
Just like back in the 90s!
The Splat willing be hitting the airwaves, as they used to say in the 90s, on October 5.
