Arguably, for some, the month’s best news came from a Nickelodeon announcement that was made a few weeks ago that states that a new channel dedicated to Nick cartoons and other shows from the 90s, called The Splat, would be launching on October 5, 2015.
Then, in another announcement that was made earlier this morning, Nickelodeon revealed some more details about the launch of the new network, including, the shows that made the cut for the launch.
The official statement released by Nickelodeon reads:
Millennials who crave the iconic Nickelodeon shows of their childhood, including Kenan & Kel, Rugrats, Hey Arnold! and more, can rejoice.
Starting Monday, Oct. 5, Nickelodeon will throw back to the ‘90s every day with the launch of “The Splat,” a new multiscreen content destination spanning television, seven social media platforms and a dedicated web site aggregating the most loved Nick content from the 1990s and beyond.
“The Splat” will dive deep to create a retro experience filled with landmark Nickelodeon programs; classic programming stunts like Nick or Treat, U-Pick and Super Toy Run; the recreation of specific days of programming as they aired in the ‘90s; and original promos and interstitials, including the Doo-wop Dinosaurs and the Opera Lady.
“The Splat” will roar to life across all platforms on Monday, Oct. 5, launching that night on television on TeenNick from 10 p.m. – 6 a.m. (ET/PT).
Although a comprehensive list of the shows that will be airing on the network isn’t available, here are some confirmed shows that you can look forward to watching on The Splat in just a few weeks:
