I'm not sure if there's anyone here who watched Nickelodeon in the late 1980s to the mid/late 1990s, but there have been a lot of people (like me) hoping that a Nick Rewind channel will come out. Last I heard, it was supposed to come out in August of 2008, and include several old Nickelodeon shows (both live-action and nicktoons). I haven't had much luck with finding a lot of old nickelodeon stuff, though there is some on youtube. Nowadays, Nickelodeon has gone downhill. I used to like some of the newer shows, but now it's just trash compared to what they used to show. So, can anyone help me out here?
That's an internet-wide rumor going around, about the Nick Rewind channel coming out this summer. But to my understanding, it's already out. Someone who used to post at the "You Can't Do That on Television" board on its official site has a connection to Nickelodeon and posted a screencap of Nick Rewind On Demand:
He posted this in late January. It's only in the experimental stages and very few people have access to it.
I was watching Nickelodeon back before I could even remember, which I probably started watching in late 1987 or early 1988. My favorite show they had was one of their most popular ones, "You Can't Do That on Television." It's one of the VERY few old shows that Nickelodeon actually seems to acknowledge when they reminisce their past.
I'm a HUGE fan of pre-1998 Nickelodeon. Other than YCDTOTV, other good shows they had on were Hey Dude, Salute Your Shorts, Alex Mack, Doug, Ren and Stimpy, Pete & Pete, Clarissa Explains It All, etc.
I remember the premiere of the very first Nicktoons back in August 1991. They played Doug, Rugrats, and Ren and Stimpy back to back.
Ren and Stimpy ended its run of new episodes on Nick early, because it had lots of inapropiate things in it. I think Rocco's Modern Life also had a few inapropriate things. Recently, Ren and Stimpy have been shown on more adult channels. I really never watched either one. I did watch some old live action Nickelodeon shows, but not a lot. I liked Rugrats, Doug, and other old nicktoons, but only older episodes. By the time 2000 came along, Nick seem to be going down hill, and I didn't realize it until recently.

I used to like to watch the Rugrats, I still try to watch them when I get the chance, I saw the 2 movies when They were in the theater I saw the Rugrats movie when I was about 5, and I saw Rugrats in Paris when I was 8 , Does anyone remember a show that was on Nickelodeon about 11 or 12 years ago called "Gullah, Gullah Island"? My family didn't have cable back then, But when my grandma babysat me back then, she would sometimes put me in front of the TV, and "Gullah, Gullah Island" would almost always be on.
I used to watch Rugrats when it premiered 16 years ago (along with Doug and Ren & Stimpy). But when I watched the new season premiere in 1997 (around the time Princess Diana was killed), I was greatly disappointed. It was evident that the show was going straight downhill. It only kept getting worse with each season and each additional character. Suddenly, it wasn't a "family" show anymore. Those newer episodes could have been put on Nick, Jr for pre-schoolers.
Some people like to say "well, it's because you got too old for it." No- play an oldie and a newer one back to back. The end.
I think some of the episodes really were shown on Nick Jr. a few times. To me, the best ones were the first three seasons. When nicktoons first premiered, it seems like some people weren't quite sure what type of a channel Nickelodeon was (the creators of Ren and Stimpy and Rocco's Modern Life for instance). It's the first kid's network, not Adult Swim. I do remember seeing at least one episode of Rugrats with a sort of inapropriate scene, but I won't go into detail on that.
