Nickelodeon has announced “The Splat,” a new eight-hour block of throwback TV programming that started on Monday, Oct. 5. Instead of a channel, as originally speculated, the Splat is ‘90s TV programming that will run on TeenNick from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. ET.
So what ‘90s shows can you expect on The Splat? According to Us Weekly, there will be both animated and live-action favorites, including: “All That,” “The Angry Beavers,” “Are You Afraid of the Dark?,” “CatDog,” “Clarissa Explains It All,” “Hey Arnold!,” “Hey Dude,” “Kenan & Kel,” “The Ren & Stimpy Show,” “Legends of the Hidden Temple,” “Rocko’s Modern Life,” “Rugrats,” “Salute Your Shorts” and “The Wild Thornberrys.”
According to Variety, Nickelodeon will also launch “TheSplat.com,” a website that will host social media conversations about the programming, an emoji keyboard with emoticons, stickers and GIFs and social-media venues like Facebook and Instagram.
“We have been listening closely to our first generation of Nick kids that are craving the great characters and shows they grew up with watching Nickelodeon in the ‘90s,” said Cyma Zarghami, president of Viacom Kids and Family Group, in a prepared statement. “We designed ‘The Splat’ with fans and their requests in mind, which means we’re bringing together these beloved series and a high level of digital engagement to give fans a retro media experience they can’t get anywhere else.”
