Nickelodeon wants to get nostalgic with you this fall. Some may remember earlier this month when the network launched a mysterious YouTube video warning us that The Splat was coming. Now, on October 5, it will finally be here. Nickelodeon will take it back to the '90s every day from — 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. EST — on TeenNick. Get ready to see classic TV shows like: All That, Rugrats, Hey Arnold!, Clarissa Explains It All, Are You Afraid of the Dark?, Rocko's Modern Life and Kenan & Kel — who reunited recently on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. This eight-hour block will celebrate Nickelodeon's heyday and attempt to re-create those afternoons you spent in front of the TV as a kid. Original commercials and programming stunts like Nick or Treat, U-Pick and Super Toy Run, will also air. We just hope Stick Stickly will also be back. Considering that Nickelodeon already launched their “The 90s Are All That” programming block back in 2011, The Splat is about more than just re-airing their best TV shows. It will also include TheSplat.com where fans can go to discuss their favorite Nick moments and encourages users to connect through their many social media channels. In addition to this, Nickelodeon will also be launching an emoji keyboard in next month. So get ready to respond to all of your text messages with Tommy Pickles and Hey Arnold! images.
Nickelodeon even brags that to make sure they weren't missing out on any nostalgia they hired their own "Splat Pack" — Nick's millennial play on the Brat Pack — to help them launch with a month's worth of themed TV blocks. This includes a week dedicated to the best Rugrats episodes featuring everyone's favorite dinosaur Reptar (Sorry Barney), and Nick or Treat where they'll play the spookiest episodes. Week one launches with "First Time For Everything," which will feature first two episodes of fan-favorite animated and live-action series and game shows like Legends of the Hidden Temple.
