I remember Are You Afraid of the Dark and All That. Looking back, the latter wasn't really all that funny. And it was very taxing on Coolio's street cred. Then later, a couple people from that show got on SNL, and continued to be not funny.

But Rocko's Modern Life was good.

Snick started as I was entering high school, so I only watched it a few times (crappy part time job and social life kept me away from tv on Saturday nights). I do remember catching it a few times, and some of the shows in reruns. I did like 'Are you afraid of the dark?' for the most part. If it was out when I was younger, I'd probably have been an avid fan.

You and me both, especially the Virus one. (Though to me today, he looks like the mutant offspring of Destro and Gary Coleman.)

Man Nick used to be cool, but now it's a tween hellhole full of shit sitcoms, shit cartoons, and shit education shows

I had a grape crush on Catalina from "Space Cases" and wondered what happened to her. She ended up also being the hot mechanic Kaylee on Firefly.

Yeah ok, but keep in mind that you were a kid at the time. My 30-year-old sister always hated early-90s Nick and thought that's when it turned to shit. Kids nowadays are going to think their generation's Nickelodeon was the pinnacle of televsion compared to Nickelodeon ten years from now.

Nickelodeon never changes, people just grow up. And they still have nostalgia for the shitty things they liked when they were kids. Some of the old stuff still holds up, but Salute Your Shorts is pretty bad when you're not a kid.

To be fair, a lot of the kids shows back then could get away with more controversial stuff. I mean, these days, you can't even have a nosebleed on Batman!

It's a trade off. The kids can now show skin and make fart jokes.

The last spectacular show on Nick was Invader Zim, and look at what happened to it.......

I blame All Grown Up, that show successfully murdered all of Nick's dignity

To me Catdog was the beginning of the end for good nick shows. Zim is just ADD bullshit that quirky Hot Topic kids go nuts over.

Anyways, I watched Snick every chance I get. Good stuff on there. First two seasons of All That, Rocko, Clarissa, And of course Are You Afraid of The Dark?

I asked my friend if he ever watched Are You Afraid and he quipped, bordering on tiraded "Naw, when I was that age I was watching HELLRAISER!. why would I watch bullshit like that when I can watch HELLRAISER!"

I have a few memories of it. All That was actually pretty funny I thought (although my taste in humor's probably on the fringe...)

For some reason, I can remember the time SNICK had the Spice Girls as guest stars. They were holding a contest where at a certain time, you called in and could potentially win the SNICK couch stuffed with cash. I actually thought I'd win that. Wasn't I optimistic back then? (Moreso than now even)
