Aaahh!!! Real Monsters

Aaahh!!! Real Monsters was the original Monsters Inc. It was also the grosser, less cute version as well. The shows share a lot of similarities, which makes me assume that Disney stole this idea from Nickelodeon. And, as we all know, Disney can basically do whatever it wants.  Aaahh!!! Real Monsters is a show about three […]

Celebrity Narrators

At some point, it became A Thing for celebrities to make cameos on children’s programming. When I was a kid, Richard Pryor was showing up on Sesame Street and pissing off my mom, who was decidedly not a fan of his brand of humor. Now Mark Mothersbaugh guests on Yo Gabba Gabba and shows kids […]

The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius

Including the brutally long title, this show had a number of annoying, unrealistic things about it. Most often shortened to Jimmy Neutron, the program was about an 11 year old boy genius and his adventures. Okay, so the title is actually very appropriate and accurate. But it doesn’t leave much up to the imagination. Jimmy […]

SpongeBob SquarePants

Every so often a quality children’s show will be released to the public. The world will make fun of it, and quickly realize how immensely cool it is. It’s a challenge to make a children’s show fun for adults and kids (and college students that are high) to enjoy, but SpongeBob SquarePants manages to tick […]


KaBlam! was one of the weirder shows that Nickelodeon aired. I think they were trying to be really creative and it just turned out to be totally bizarre, kind of scary and slightly boring. However, it was refreshing to have a show filled with animated shorts—always hoping that your favorite one would be played during […]

Muppet Babies

I was never a big fan of the actual Muppets so I don’t know what possessed me to watch the animated show portraying them as babies. My mind is just filled with absolute garbage. Muppet Babies tried way too hard to be funny. There were a lot of bad jokes and a lot of weird […]

As Told by Ginger

I feel like this show never got as much street cred as it deserved. As Told By Ginger had well developed characters, good back stories, and realistic relationships. It was slightly odd, but all good shows have to be kind of weird otherwise they won’t be memorable. Much like Doug, Ginger speaks to the audience […]

Rocket Power

The only thing better than not working out, is watching other people workout. The Nick show Rocket Power always made me feel accomplished even though I had been sitting on the couch for half an hour. It’s a program about a group of friends that live in California who enjoy surfing, skateboarding, rollerblading, and tons […]

Fairly Odd Parents

Having a fairy godmother has always been a dream for kids and grown-ups alike. Who wouldn’t want someone around to grant all of their wishes? In Nickelodeon’s Fairly Odd Parents, Timmy Turner was one of those kids with a crumby life. The CEOs in fairyland sent Timmy some fairy god parents to brighten up his […]
