Nickelodeon's Bringing the 90s Back

The network programming dedicated to the 90s and early 2000s -- Nickelodeon and The Splat -- is answering 90s baies' prayers everywhere by opening their vaults for a "slime-tastic" immersive experience at San Diego Comic Con (SDCC). Look for booth 4113 a sprawling 1,800 square-foot piece of real estate on the convention floor to see Nickelodeon pay tribute to its most memorable shows and popular characters with activities, games, panels and autograph sessions. probably the thing that I am most looking forward to are the interactive elements featuring: Legends of the Hidden Temple, Hey Arnold!, Rugrats, Double Dare, Aaahh!!! Real Monsters, CatDog, Rocko’s Modern Life, and Invader Zim, among many others.

King Olmec from Legends of the Hidden Temple

“Those who dare to pass through the sacred gates of Comic-Con will enter a world of nostalgic treasures, artifacts and trivia from Nickelodeon's beloved '90s archives," said King Olmec, Keeper of Nickelodeon's booth. "The choice to enter is yours and yours alone, loyal fans."

During SDCC 2016, there will be a virtual reality 360-experience where fans can step into the world of the upcoming Legends of the Hidden Temple live-action TV movie; an interactive trivia game featuring Legends of the Hidden Temple’s King Olmec, Keeper of the Temple; photo opps with a life-size replica of the Hey Arnold! stoop and the nose from Double Dare; a retail area, where attendees can purchase a variety of exclusive Nick, The Splat and ‘90s-themed gear and one-of-a-kind collectibles; costumed character appearances; and autograph signings with cast members from All That, SpongeBob SquarePants’ Tom Kenny, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles voice talent, Kirk Fogg from Legends of the Hidden Temple, and more special appearances to be announced in the coming weeks.

Each day, Nickelodeon will host panels with: Craig Bartlett (Hey Arnold!), Jhonen Vasquez (Invader Zim), Butch Hartman (The Fairly OddParents, Danny Phantom) and Arlene Klasky, who along with Gabor Csupo and Paul Germain, created Rugrats on Thursday. On Friday, the extraordinary voice actors of the TMNT world: Rob Paulsen (Donatello), Greg Cipes (Michelangelo), Gwendoline Yeo (Shinigami) and Eric Bauza (Tiger Claw) will have a panel with the world premiere of two never-before-seen TMNT animated shorts presented by TMNT co-creator, Kevin Eastman. Saturday, Josh Server, Danny Tamberelli, Lori Beth Denberg and Kel Mitchell, will be discussing all things All That. I used to have such a crush on Kel and Josh Server. Needless to say, I'm pretty excited about this!

It seems as though Nickelodeon has brought their A-game!
