the best of nickelodeon

Hello and welcome to Top 10 Thursday!!

I'm in the 90's mood this week, and it got me remembering all of the ever so fabulous Nickelodeon shows that we all grew to love back in the days of Snick.

Nickelodeon used to rape Disney with its shows. There was no competition. Nickelodeon was the ish and there is no denying it.

What were the best shows of the channel, though?? Well, these were the

Top 10 Old School Nickelodeon/Snick TV Shows

10. Are You Afraid of the Dark?

Well, yes... Yes I am afraid of the dark. And I was afraid of this show. However, I hear about it, and I've seen it a couple of times since I was little, and I guess it's a pretty sweet show.. If you can/could handle it.

9. The Adventures of Pete and Pete

I mean, seriously.. How awesome is it that it's about two little red-headed boys with the same name?! They were always getting themselves into trouble and we loved every second of it.

8. Aaahh! Real Monsters
If they plan on making a movie about a TV show, you know it's good.. Even if it got canceled. Finally there were some monsters we didn't have to be afraid of and we could actually laugh with. YES!

7. Rocko's Modern Life

He was one ugly character, but seeing Heffer try and squeeze into the car and drive over the hill was funny every single time. And we were able to say HEFFER with no one hassling us at a young age! I love it.

6. CatDog

Part cat, part dog?! It's the perfect pet! Sometimes they're best friends, sometimes they hate each other, but that's life isn't it? But WHO are the parents of this crazy.. Uh.. Animal?!

5. Gullah Gullah Island

One name: Binyah Binyah. How could you NOT love a show about a family and its HUGE, yellow frog?! Plus, the theme song is one of the best ever. And with it not being on like.. EVER anymore.. Absence has definitely made the heart grow fonder.

4. Clarissa Explains It All

Such a classic. It's like a less intense version of Dawson's Creek, with a mix of Saved by the Bell. Her little friend comes through the window, and she stops the show to tell you how she feels about everything. How did she know what we were wondering?! She's so smart...

3. The Secret World of Alex Mack

How AWESOME is it that she can turn into a liquid and slide under the door?! Ever get in a fight with someone and they just lock themselves in somewhere? You could get right through there if you were her! Jealous.

2. Double Dare/Wild N Crazy Kids/GUTS

Okay, they're all awesome, but they're all so much alike, so they're in one! It's the game show for kids! And you could even bring your families to some of them! Shoottt, who doesn't want to do crazy obstacle courses through slime and other awkward substances to win a cool prize?!

1. All That

The late night show for kids! It's an almost-forever show that had offered everything SNL does... For kids! Add Kenan and Kel and it's unbeatable! And with that theme song, you'll never get it out of your head, and you'll always want more.

Hopefully that took you on a nice ride down Memory Lane. :) I know it did for me!

As always, feel free to let me know what kudos/issues you have about it.
