Subject: Silver Age Nick (2000-2004/5) thread

Post nostalgia related to the Silver Age of Nick here.

http://img09.deviantart.net/6641/i/2009/313/2/7/nicktoons_collage_by_astep2stage18.jpg

I'm biased, but this is my favorite era of Nick. Early Spongebob and Fairly Oddparents, Chalkzone, Invader Zim, My Life as a teenage robot, Danny phantom(seasons 1-2), Avatar, Jimmy Neutron, Catscratch, Friday Night Nicktoons, U-Pick Live, ... man, those were the days.

Not to mention, at this time, they STILL had reruns(Rocko's Modern Life, Kablam, and Angry Beavers) or even new episodes(Rugrats, Hey Arnold, CatDog, Rocket Power) of the 90s shows, which created a perfect "equilibrium" of old and new.

Too bad it had to end a bit too soon (4/5 years isn't enough in my books!).

In all honesty, the Silver Age to me ended in 2006, when Jimmy Neutron and Invader Zim ended. Aside from that, I purposely agree that the Silver Age was in between 2000-2005.

So 1998-99 was pretty much a transition from the GA to the SA?

Invader Zim really ended in 2002. But for whatever reason, Nick had some episodes leftover, and they decided to air them on Nicktoons Network in 2006.

Well that's true. But nobody really saw the last episodes until 2006. Although Jimmy Neutron was worth it more, because it still had new episodes between 2002-2006.

They were already on the DVDs. Nick just likes being a bunch of lazy bastards with their TV airings, for whatever reason (for instance, they made it so CatDog took like five years to eke out just 5 22-minute episodes).

Damn. I guess maybe they were lazy at airing on TV. But yet again, Disney did the same thing in the 2000s.

I loved both growing up, but I prefer Fairly Odd Parents. I just found Timmy, while unlikable at times, to be more relatable. Having grown up with older siblings, I always wanted fairy god parents that would do anything I wished for! Also I found the show to be a little more memorable, like the time Timmy had to save his friends in a video game, or the time when Timmy went back in time to his parents, etc.



I think it began when Jimmy Neutron and Invader Zim ended in 2006. The late 2000s were more likely to be the bronze age.


I could see why 2006 is decent end year for the Bronze age. However, a lot of the changes that people usually have major griefs about with Nickelodeon (ending of 90's/early 00's Nicktoons, SNICK, Nickelodeon Studios, etc.) occurred around 2004-2005. I think it would be more suitable for the Silver Age to end probably in 2005, with the Bronze Age picking up around the same time.

It's sad that Nick Studios closed down, but to be fair, by 2001 its attendance had dropped to the single-digits. :o

Perhaps closing it was a smart business move, though it of course upset nostalgic fans who don't know how the industry works (I've found myself drifting in and out of agreeing with these fans).

Me too. It felt very chill, in a Hey Arnold way of course.

Fairly Oddparents was great... in the first two or three seasons.

Later on, around late season 3 or season 4, I think it started getting iffy. The humor got more obnoxious and lost its charm, Timmy became one-dimensionally selfish and greedy (rather than a good kid who only occasionally got full of himself), the show began to lose that "relatable" feeling you referenced, everyone suddenly began mocking Wanda for being a "nag", Cosmo ditched the "Phil Hartman" angle and became a hateable character as his voice got higher, etc.

People always say Poof was when the show went downhill, but I think it was a little before that.

Well it was a bit longer than 4/5 years. To me the Silver age of Nick would be from 1998-2005 which is around 8 years. I'm with you on being a bit biased on this era. The only time where you could watch Invader Zim, Doug, Rugrats, Rocket Power, Teenage Robot, Jimmy Neutron etc all on the same channel. Even had other things like Tiny Toons and Animaniacs running on the channel (between 2002-2005). Was a great time for Nick. Silver Age had Avatar Last Airbenders which is one of the highest rated animated shows on TV that is only matched by a few according to critics/public reviews.

Frankly, I think Zelek's view of the silver age is rather different, since he was born in the mid 90s. I for myself would rather agree with his view though, since Nickelodeon was somehow strange in the late 2000s. Between 2004-2006, when I started to watch regular Nickelodeon, it was more relaxed and consistent. Between 2007-2009, it was just when a lot of their more interesting shows were on Nicktoons Network (e.g. Kappa Mikey, Speed Racer: TNG).

A show from Nick's Silver Age I remember liking, but everyone else hated, was All Grown Up.

Honestly, even as a kid I never really liked All Grown Up. I would watch it if there wasn't anything else on, but it wasn't something I'd watch by choice. Same goes with a lot of mid/late 2000's teen targeted (although failing to even get their attentions ;D) cartoons like 6teen and Total Drama Island, they just seemed bland and unfunny to me.

Unfortunately, most people on the Internet don't actually want to talk about the SHOW, they just want about its "waifu" factor. :P

Okay, if you're talking about the people who have Jenny as her waifu, it's kinda weird. Especially when I watched the show as a kid, when I didn't know that people could have sexual attractions towards a teenage robot.

Me 3! I watched both of those shows and they were actually decent. It's a shame that both didn't last long. My Life as a Teenage Robot was gone by 2005 and Catscratch was gone by 2006.

Oh, another one that didn't last long was the X's. It seems it lasted for only a year and quickly disappeared.

When it comes to Back at the Barnyard, I actually liked the movie it was spun off from, it was a guilty pleasure. It was funny in a fratboy-type way, and had good morals for kids, that thankfully weren't too heavy-handed. Based on the reviews I've read, I may be the only one on earth who liked that movie. :P

However, I'd agree with reviewers that the show the movie spawned was cheesy and terrible, as well as destroying the morals of the movie. In the movie, Otis grew up, cut down on the mischief-making, and learned that "A strong man stands up for himself, a stronger man stands up for others". But in the show, he's back to being a cowardly moron.

I think 2005 was still silver age Nick because they still had reruns of the 90s shows, as well as their last good shows - Avatar and Catscratch - premiering that year. Not to mention, the episodes of SpongeBob aired that year or in early 06 (i.e. Fear of a Krabby Patty, Krabs vs. Plankton, Selling Out, Krusty Towers) were probably the most well-made of the post-movie era.

In 2006, Cyma Zarghami took over, and they began filling the schedule with too much SpongeBob, and not enough old shows. Also, SpongeBob truly began to go downhill in mid 06 with the All That Glitters episode. And the unholy force known as the Naked Brothers Band were unleashed that year, with their music videos playing on Nick constantly (though their show didn't start until 2007).

That's a problem that still pervades Nick to this day - TOO MUCH SpongeBob! Other shows need love too.

Well, I did like the movie as a kid. It seemed more high quality than the TV show it spawned. Although, the first episodes were okay, but weren't as good as the movie. For anything related to Barnyard, the movie was definitely my favorite.


However, I'd agree with reviewers that the show the movie spawned was cheesy and terrible, as well as destroying the morals of the movie. In the movie, Otis grew up, cut down on the mischief-making, and learned that "A strong man stands up for himself, a stronger man stands up for others". But in the show, he's back to being a cowardly moron.


Not to mention the show had very weird references that most kids would never get. I could get some of them, since they were related towards baseball. But aside from that, they were pretty lame for most kids.

I've always loved that "Not Just Cartoons, We're Nicktoons" rap. :)

Must admit, as time goes on, it's getting harder and harder for me to grasp a world where SpongeBob was in its pre-movie phase, when the show was a global phenomenon that was beloved, rather than a worn-out institution that should be put to rest. I miss those days. :\'(

Yeah, I do.

I remember a lot of people (fans and critics alike) really HATING the Hey Arnold movie and I'm not sure why. As a kid, I thought it was fun movie. It didn't have the morals and depth of some Hey Arnold episodes, but eh, not all episodes of that show were deep. Some were more straightforward or "fun".

I guess they were mad because that movie presumably replaced the Jungle Movie, but they're making the Jungle Movie now so there's no point in complaining anymore.

This is pretty much my Silver Age Nickelodeon experience right here. I didn't watch Nick much after 2001, thought I did occasionally check out shows like Danny Phantom, My Life as a Teenage Robot, Jimmy Neutron, etc. in the mid '00s. I don't think I've watched Nick at all since 2007, though. I will say, though, as a Golden Age Nick kid, the Silver Age actually is better than most '90s kids give it credit for. Sure, I prefer the shows I grew up with, but Nick still had a lot of quality Nicktoons in the '00s like the ones I mentioned earlier, plus Invader Zim, As Told by Ginger and the like. Avatar was pretty good as well.

As for my favorite Silver Age shows, I tend to prefer the live-action shows from that era over the cartoons, as I was in middle school by 2000. I used to watch Caitlin's Way, Taina, and 100 Deeds for Eddie McDowd religiously back in the day. How about The Brothers Garcia? Does anybody remember that show? I loved it, but I feel that it's become completely forgotten over the years. Definitely an early '00s gem.

I'd say more people need to be educated on the clear difference between early 00s and late 00s Nick.

Early-Mid 00s (Danny Phantom, Jimmy Neutron, pre-movie SpongeBob, Avatar, Hey Arnold) = Good
Late 00s (Fanboy and Chum Chum, post-movie SpongeBob, Back at the Barnyard, Naked Brothers Band) = Bad

Simples.

You know it's funny, I'm reading some forum posts from back when this era of Nick was going on, and they hated it at the time! Heck, most of the ToonZone or Usenet Nick posts from 2000-2004 are along these lines:

"Klasky-Csupo sucks and needs to stop making cartoons!"
"The new Rugrats episodes with Dil and/or Kimi are terrible."
"SNICK is terrible now."
"Zim is the best show ever and he's my waifu and I hate Nick stuff if there's no zim in it."
"Spongebob is stupid and it's for babies." (yes, they even said this about seasons 1-3. Blasphemous, I know)
"Chalkzone is stupid and it's for babies."
"CN is the king of animation, they have the awesome Cartoon Cartoons, what does Nick have? They ain't got nothing!"
"Stupid Nick spootheads canceled the almighty ZIM, may doom rain down on their pig-filthy human earth stupid-heads!"
"Jimmy Neutron is a Dexter's Lab ripoff!"
"Don't watch Nick today because Rocket Power, the worst show ever, is going to air! You've been warned!"
"Anything Nick made post-1996 sucks."

Yet nowadays, I see people referring to early 00s Nick as the "good ol' days" (not just on this forum, but other places too). I wonder if, in the distant future, kids who are watching Nick now will look upon the 2010s as the "good ol' days", "back when Nick was good". :P

You know what's funny? It seems even Nick has noticed that the Silver Age has a bit of a following from a lot of Nick fans. I think it was mentioned on here before, but before The Splat was just 90s Nick shows. But from this quote from Wikipedia

The Splat is a programming block that airs nightly on TeenNick. The block shows reruns of classic 1980s, 1990s and early-mid 2000s children's programming, mostly shows that aired on Nickelodeon during their original runs. The block airs eight hours, running every night from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. Its name and logo comes from Nickelodeon's historic logo, a white brush-printed wordmark on an amorphous orange background (often manifested as a "splat" shape, but which was frequently rendered in many others), which the network used from 1984 to 2009.

So yeah now the splat includes 80s Early Nick years, 90s Golden Nick Years, and even 00s Silver Nick Years. I can easily see shows such as Teenage Robot, Invader Zim, Chalkzone, old Fairly Odd Parents, Old Spongebob etc being featured with Hey Arnold, Doug, Rocko's Modern Life etc. Probably because during the Silver Age they all were airing at the same time. The current Splat channel is literally bringing us back to the early 2000s in terms of full lineup.

In all honesty I think Nick is like Saturday Night Live - the version YOU grew up with is the best one. I even know older folks who miss when Nick was called the "Pinwheel Channel" back in the late 70s.

True. That's why they changed their name from "90s Are All That" to "The Splat", so they could include 80s and early-mid 2000s stuff in there as well.

But the thing I don't like about The Splat is that they seem to just air the same five shows over and over again on a continuous loop: CatDog, Doug, Hey Arnold!, Rocket Power, Rugrats. They've occasionally shown other shows too, like ChalkZone and As Told By Ginger, but they only air those like once and never again.

Yeah, I guess Nick is one of them channels where you will only care for the era of shows you may  have experienced as a kid or eras that had shows appearing in other eras.  As for the Splat showing the same 5 shows it's the reason I don't watch the Splat very much. It's not a bad channel and I'm fine with channels that don't let shows die away into forgotten realms, but airing the same 5 shows on loop is terrible and grows tiring. Imagine is Disney made a new Toon Disney and they just reran the same 5 Disney Afternoon shows. As much as I like seeing those 5 shows the reason people REALLY liked the old eras was because of the list of shows they could enjoy. Not just a handful, but a full on playlist of shows.

You know, the episode that explained Arnold's parents' backstory and would have set up the Jungle Movie (which they're making as we speak).

But for some reason, Nick aired the episodes out of order, and the last seen episode turned out to be... Pheobe farting into a microphone.

I agree, but sometimes I feel tempted to include the second half of 2004 in the silver age of Nick. Reason being because the SpongeBob Movie came out then, and it was a very fitting farewell to old Spongebob ("Ocean mannnn, take me by the hand" ;)).

I also sometimes feel like 2005 is part of silver age Nick, because Cyma Zarghami hadn't taken over yet, there was still a variety of shows in the schedule and not just endless Spongebob reruns, Avatar TLA (one of the best Nick shows, bar none) came out that year, and Catscratch came out that year which was the last good Nicktoon imho.

I remember liking Nickelodeon by late 2004. It was after when Wild Thornberrys, Hey Arnold, and Rugrats ended, but they were still airing reruns of it by 2005. I even got a Spongebob pinata that I got for my birthday in 2004. But for 2005, it just seemed like a great year for Nick because of Avatar and Catscratch premiering that year. It was also when most Spongebob episodes were still made before the movie, even though Season 4 premiered at the time.

A near-perfect equilibrium of early 2000s Nick and mid-2000s Nick. If Avatar came out in 2004 instead of 2005, it would've been a perfect equilibrium.


For Nicktoons and slime shows 2002 or 2003. For TeenNick & live-action shows 2004 or 2005.

So 1998-99 was pretty much a transition from the GA to the SA?

Yeah

1997-98 imo... 1998-99 Silver Age nick was already there imo.

I also sometimes feel like 2005 is part of silver age Nick, because Cyma Zarghami hadn't taken over yet, there was still a variety of shows in the schedule and not just endless Spongebob reruns, Avatar TLA (one of the best Nick shows, bar none) came out that year, and Catscratch came out that year which was the last good Nicktoon imho.

Sigh... you're focusing too much on the Nicktoons. You need to focus on their programming as a whole. 2004 saw them enter their teennick phase, that pretty much ended their silver age.
2003-04 was pretty much the gap just like 1997-98 was. But to each his own, I guess. ;)

By early 2004, we already had them go with their TeenNick phase thanks to Drake and Josh. It was already over by 2007 (when they had iCarly), even though Drake and Josh was still airing until late 2008.

I don't think it would last long by then. The new Nickelodeon logo was changed by 2009, and every show that was on the Silver/Bronze Ages (aside from Spongebob and FOP) ended around 2007/2008.

It's Cyma's fault, as I've elaborated before, that the silver age didn't last longer.

Just compare Nick's schedule in January 2006 to how it was in November 2006; by late 06, there were way more endless reruns of Spongebob and much less variety in the shows.

Silver Age lasted about as long as the golden age didn't it? Golden Age was from 1991-1997/1998 so about 7 to 8 years. Silver Age is from 1997/1998 - 2004/2005 (ending with Avatar Last Airbender and Catscratch) so about 7 to 9 years.

Funny enough despite it being called the Silver Age I actually enjoy it a bit more than the Golden Age. Mainly since the Silver Age had its own shows AND all the Golden Age shows. If we're going by new shows only then maybe Golden Age wins, but if we go by everything that was available on the channel then the Silver Age wins. Sadly the Bronze age didn't keep the Silver Age shows. I assume the current heads of Nick wanted to start completely fresh. But they do have The Splat which includes both Golden and Silver Age shows. I just wish they aired more than 7 shows at once. The whole appeal of old Nick ages were that they were like Cartoon Network where they had a huge list of shows airing.

I'm not sure if this all has to do with people mainly streaming their favorite shows online. For example despite Cartoon Network only having a few shows it's assumed that people are just watching the most of the shows online. During the 1st half of the 2000s streaming online was basically non-existent for the most part. So companies decided to just fit as many shows onto a network as possible.

Well, they did have reruns of Rugrats, Hey Arnold, Rocket Power, and the Wild Thornberrys during half of the Bronze Age. Although, most of them ended when 2004 came.

I feel the same whenever I used to watch Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon growing up. They used to have a great variety of shows, while keeping everybody comfortable. It sucks that they only have to air 3-5 shows, since online streaming exists and makes cable TV obsolete.

Well, that is true. I usually watch the newest episodes of We Bare Bears on Kisscartoon (a website that streams cartoons), since it's quite awkward to see it with all of the Teen Titans Go reruns.

Right. I honestly wonder how did she even reach that position in the first place? Had the person before her still been president of Nickelodeon, then the endless reruns of Spongebob would have never took place.

If you want to know, that was one of the first things I noticed when 2006 was the current year.

If only Silver Age Nick didn't go the way of CN and Toon Disney. '06 the Silver Age was pretty much over and replaced by the new age. In '06 CN City era ended. In '06 Toon Disney heavily altered its lineup. From 2000-2005 I've noticed that these channels was being fairly consistent with the cartoons they aired.

Do you think maybe it was a change of taste with the general audience? I need to talk to different age groups. The kids who saw Nick during 1991-1997. Kids who saw Nick from 1998-2005. And the kids who saw Nick from 2005-present. Although I'm not sure if Nick is in a new era as of recently.

100% officially yes it did end in June 2007, but to me real CN City ended in April 2006. The Yes! era was just a cheaper branding that ran concurrent with the City era. The Dimensional era of CN that's been going on since last year is concurrent with the CHECK it era similar to how the Yes! era was with the City era. The Dimensional era is very downgraded compared to the CHECK it 1.0 or 2.0. The Yes! era was very downgraded compared to the City era.

I would be happy to see something like this, but it wasn't like the Yes! era was truly the best era on Cartoon Network. I've seen Nickelodeon from the mid 2000s way better than what Cartoon Network had to offer (no offense). I could like being nostalgic for CN, but I haven't been a regular fan of the network until early 2007. So most of the time throughout the mid 2000s, I just watched Boomerang with Tom and Jerry, Scooby Doo, The Smurfs, The Snorks, and the original Pokemon seasons.

Of course the Yes! era wasn't the best era of Cartoon Network, it was barely a thing but it's short lived run is still better than the eras on Cartoon Network since 2010. ayaou don't have to apologize for your opinion.

I'd take the Yes! era over CN from 2014-present but it wasn't better than CN's mini-renaissance from late 2010-2013. Late 2010-2013 was the peak of the CHECK it when it was mostly 1.0 & 2.0 style which had the best lineups in years when Adventure Time and Regular Show were the most popular shows along with action cartoons like Young Justice, Generator Rex, ThunerCats (2011), Sym-Bionic Titan, or Scooby-Doo Mystery Inc. Plus, I thought The Looney Tunes Show and MAD were pretty good underrated shows. Cartoon Planet was also great throughout 2012 and early 2013 when it was on Friday nights showed all classic CN shows for awhile.

Personally, I could take both the Yes! and early Check It eras than today's Cartoon Network. It's actually sad that CN nowadays just air countless reruns of Teen Titans Go, where it doesn't make the channel entertaining anymore. It was also around the time when Boomerang still had classic shows and blocks commemorating them.

I'd say the Dreamworks golden age was more like 1998-2004. Beginning with Antz and ending with Shrek 2. Shark Tale was what killed the golden age.

THIS.

What's ironic was that I recently saw this video from a guy named Saberspark (who makes great content btw, he's made analysis for other networks/companies on the issues plaguing them) and I pretty much agree with most of what he's said:

od-tQN8C48s

Pretty anecdotal, but its funny how for most of the first half of my childhood I actually was an avid fan of many of Dreamworks films. Heck I owned Prince of Egypt, El Dorado, Joseph Prince of Dreams, and Spirit all on VHS as a kid and I even saw Shrek 1 at friends houses and Shrek 2 a couple of times when it first came to theaters.

I'd say the Dreamworks golden age was more like 1998-2004. Beginning with Antz and ending with Shrek 2. Shark Tale was what killed the golden age.


Although Antz and The Prince of Egypt weren't that well known for Dreamworks fans (such as myself). Despite that it gave Dreamworks competition against Disney at the time, it didn't gave them a strong reputation until Shrek was released in 2001. At least maybe have it around 2000-2005, since that's when most of their well known movies were released.

Being that Shrek 1 and 2 were the strongest, while Shark Tale was the weakest out of them. Movies like Road to El Dorado, Chicken Run (despite being entirely made by Aardman), Spirit, Sinbad, and Madagascar were rather average.


I agree with you MORE. Even though, Over the Hedge (2006) and Flushed Away (2006) were good movies.


I take that back with 2006 as a Golden Age year for Dreamworks. The year was rather mediocre, since both movies weren't really that great.

THIS.

What's ironic was that I recently saw this video from a guy named Saberspark (who makes great content btw, he's made analysis for other networks/companies on the issues plaguing them) and I pretty much agree with most of what he's said:

od-tQN8C48s

Pretty anecdotal, but its funny how for most of the first half of my childhood I actually was an avid fan of many of Dreamworks films. Heck I owned Prince of Egypt, El Dorado, Joseph Prince of Dreams, and Spirit all on VHS as a kid and I even saw Shrek 1 at friends houses and Shrek 2 a couple of times when it first came to theaters. Dreamworks in its early years seemed to be a formidable adversary to Disney, heck they were technically having more financial success than Disney when the Renaissance era abruptly ended with the bomb that was Atlantis in 2001. It seemed like around with Sharktale in Late 2004, a movie that was mediocore (at best), came onto the scene Dreamwork's variety seemed to had started to go downhill. Most of their new concepts weren't sticking and the couple that did, like How I Met Your Dragon or Kung Fu Panda, weren't getting as much critical acclaim as many of Pixar's films at the time like Up and Wall E, plus Disney's comeback films since the Late 2000's like Princess & The Frog and Frozen.

Yeah, I saw that video by Saberspark as well (I'm subscribed to him) and I also agree with pretty much everything he had to saw. The Dreamworks animated movies from 1998-2004 (not including Shark Tale) were GOLDEN and will always be classics.

The Aardman movies were good but they really don't count. Dreamworks didn't have creative input on those, they just distributed them.


IDK, the Shrek movie franchise and Shark Tale were the only Dreamworks movies I liked as a kid. Which would mean 2 of the 3 best franchises in Dreamworks history would have been outside the golden age (How to Train Your Dragon and Kung Fu Panda) which were arguably better than the Shrek series. Pixar was better by several miles and it wasn't close. When it comes to CGI movies, the Disney Revival era and Illumination Entertainment have outdone Dreamworks' entire history. Even Sony Pictures Animation too.

Megamind was like a Superman parody spoof.

The movie did well in theaters, but the biggest problem was the marketing. (like toys for kids) Hardly any of the Megamind characters were marketable because many of the characters felt mature. Why was Despicable Me turned into this overrated Minions franchise? Because the Minions toys sell very well and they grab kids' immediate attention.

I think '95-'96 born is definitely still millennial, though later millennial and different from older millennials like me. They are too young for the early millennial things, but old enough to have been a young adult in a decent portion of the 2010s at least which is probably the key to them still being part of the generation. A generation is an idea and the birth years are just estimates for who falls into that overall idea of when so and so "came of age". '99 is definitely getting quite cuspy though, 2002 would definitely be pretty Z.

Yeah, not to further a generation topic, but to me a mid-late millennial is someone who had a majority of their time growing up in a world where millennial culture was dominating which during the late 1990s to 2010s. And if they were an adult for most of the 2010s they're millennial. Late millennials, but millennial. A person from 96 was 18+ by 2014-2019 which is most of the 2010s. Basing it on when you matured is much more better than just saying things like "You have to remember 9/11" or whatever.

I'll admit I usually lean more with the traditionalist method (along with Eric & Marquis) that the silver age ended in Mid 2004. But I'm also okay with the theory of the era ending around Mid 2005 (the decision with Nick closing down Nickelodeon studios being major contributor).

At the end of the day most agree that the Bronze age was set in motion by the 2005-06' school year, regardless of Zarghami. Although her decisions, which took effect by Late 2006 (gotta add to the Why Late 2006 was the downfall of society lists), most certainly sped up the declining process.

I disagree with the bolded statement. I am 17 (turning 18 in 3 months - mid July), so if I was just 1 year older (more accurately about 8-9 months older) I would be able to vote in the 2016 US Presidential Election. That's not really fair. You were born in 1996 and you are 3 years older than me. However, the difference in childhoods between those born 1999 vs 2002 is greater than those born 1996 vs 1999, IMO.

Honestly the theme song is pretty good! However as a kid I always found the show a tad bit boring I guess. I'd have to give it another watch though so I could get a balanced judgement.

Good point bro! FWIW I'm pretty consistent in believing that those born from 95'-00'/01' are just a cusp of Y & Z since the earliest Millennial/Z cutoff points are usually around 1994/5 and the latter ones are usually 2000/2001. Mathematically I'd see you leaning more towards Z in that respect along with the fact that you wouldn't be able to vote until 2020. But at the same time I'd say from a cultural standpoint that If you spent most of your youth (ages 9-24, with the core years being 13-20) in 2016 & before, aka before Trump becoming president, I'd say you're safely more of a Millennial/Y. Gen Z has been described as much more conservative than Gen Y, and since Gen Z's are coming of age in a post 2016 'Trump can never win' environment. Thus they're gonna be less likely of shaking the system than their Millennial counterparts were at a similar age. So I'd say by that metric you're Y, but one of the last though...

Honestly the theme song is pretty good! However as a kid I always found the show a tad bit boring I guess. I'd have to give it another watch though so I could get a balanced judgement.


Good point bro! FWIW I'm pretty consistent in believing that those born from 95'-00'/01' are just a cusp of Y & Z since the earliest Millennial/Z cutoff points are usually around 1994/5 and the latter ones are usually 2000/2001. Mathematically I'd see you leaning more towards Z in that respect along with the fact that you wouldn't be able to vote until 2020. But at the same time I'd say from a cultural standpoint that If you spent most of your youth (ages 9-24, with the core years being 13-20) in 2016 & before, aka before Trump becoming president, I'd say you're safely more of a Millennial/Y. Gen Z has been described as much more conservative than Gen Y, and since Gen Z's are coming of age in a post 2016 'Trump can never win' environment. Thus they're gonna be less likely of shaking the system than their Millennial counterparts were at a similar age. So I'd say by that metric you're Y, but one of the last though...

I'll admit I usually lean more with the traditionalist method (along with Eric & Marquis) that the silver age ended in Mid 2004. But I'm also okay with the theory of the era ending around Mid 2005 (the decision with Nick closing down Nickelodeon studios being major contributor).

At the end of the day most agree that the Bronze age was set in motion by the 2005-06' school year, regardless of Zarghami. Although her decisions, which took effect by Late 2006 (gotta add to the Why Late 2006 was the downfall of society lists), most certainly sped up the declining process.

Question: when you say 05-06 school year, do you mean September 2005-June 2006, or June 2005-June 2006? Are you including or excluding summer 05?

I mean the September 2005-June 06' Era is where I would officially entered the Bronze Age. However, you could make the argument that it started to massively transition into the Bronze age during the Spring & Summer of 2005. IMHO, the last time in Nick's history that it still retained a fair amount of its classic 90's/early 00's aesthetic was probably the Winter of 2004/2005. Around Spring 2005 it seemed like Nick started to enter a new era. The 2003-04' school year was the last pure Silver Age Nick School Year

One possible factor in Nick's drop in network quality is that the end of 2005 is when the original Viacom became CBS Corporation and a new Viacom was created as a spin-off. This perhaps changed their business structure, and caused them to follow a new model of "Show only SpongeBob, because it's our most popular show. Show almost nothing else, because kids don't watch those boring other shows as much."

I've also heard people claim MTV went to sh*t circa 2005-2007 as well (although older people would claim it had already gone to sh*t long before that), and they're also owned by Viacom. Coincidence? I think not.

MTV was already sh*tty by 2005. It didn't really matter if Viacom split into two from CBS. I think Nickelodeon was just going through changes by the time Cyma Zarghini was president, which makes sense because it was kinda different in late 2006.

The movie actually exceeded my expectations as a kid; I never expected Fairly Oddparents, of all things, to be touching and poignant.

I think seasons 1-2, maybe 3, were the "good ones" for this show. They had a more retro feel to the humor and tone, more clever and relaxed, and not as ADHD as the later ones. For instance, Cosmo was way cooler when he sounded like Phil Hartman and was more of middling intelligence, rather than the idiot he became later on. Also I think the animation looked better when it was more jagged(?) and stylized.

I think the show took a turn for the worse around late season 3/early season 4, with Channel Chasers being the last great episode they got through the door in the early stages of the decline.

The reason I chose 2000 as the starting date for my compilation is because to normies, the golden age of Nick isn't 1991-1996 or whatever; it's the ENTIRE "90s." Thus, including any year of 90s Nick in a Silver Age Nick compilation would probably throw them off and confuse their simple non-geeky minds.

I really loved that special. Scratch that. School's Out was my favorite special from the Fairy Oddparents of all time. I loved of how they made it into where it expresses the children having lots of freedom.

Almost the entire year.

There seems to be a real paucity of 2005 Nick material on YouTube compared to 2000-2004 material, though. I managed to flush out nearly all the 05 Nick videos on YouTube, and it only adds up to an hour of content. By contrast, I flushed out most of the 2004 Nick videos from YT and they total six hours. :o

Even though Nick has been around now for almost 40 years, the network was really only any good from about 1991-mid 1999 at the latest. After that it became the "Spongebob channel".

Also, I wonder if it's any coincidence that kids stopped playing outside right around the same time that Nickelodeon started to suck? ???

I wouldn't really think 2008-2009 would be part of the silver age. They're more like bronze age years for those reasons. Also I believe 2007 was the last year for Nick's silver age, since that was when they still had Avatar: TLA (before it ended in 2008), Catscratch, Danny Phantom, pre-Season 6 Fairy Oddparents and All Grown Up airing at the same time.

Anyhow, Nick was way better before 1995. There is no way YCDTOTV is overrated! Compared to All That (the most overrated show of all time among dumb born-in-1991 "90s kids"), YCDTOTV is something totally obscure. Only the cool kids know it. 8)

Both very good points! For me the pinnacle of my childhood both from a mathematical standpoint (mid point between ages 3 & 12) and from a subjectively nostalgic standpoint is the years 2003 & 2004. Although I do have a lot of nostalgia for Late 2005/Early 2006 due to personal reasons (moving to a new state, meeting new friends, etc.). Really the years 2003-2007 are some of my most cherished memories being ages 7-11 during that time :)

You're right, Zelek. The late 2001 shift ended all optimism this country had. I remember looking at the TV on that faithful day and felt sad and thought to myself "I will never be happy again". The 90's ended on 9/11.

Everything ended in late 2001 but I must note that the first 10 days of September are still good 90's days, it's the last few days after the 11th that suck and brought us into the dreadful modern world. :-[ :-\\ :\'(

I'm not sure if you're joking, and if you aren't i agree. F**K 9/11! That event has brought nothing but a dark, serious and destructive tone.


And we've never left that era since. :\'( :\'( :\'(

And it's a such sad moment. I remember back in the day we had optimism; bands like Starship sang songs like "We Built This City" which evoked a sense of pride in the American people. After 9/11 (late 2001, sans the first 10 days of september, the end of the era) we lost that optimism and now we're stuck with Justin Bieber, Jonas Brothers and Hannah Montana! >:( >:(

I'm still working on my Silver Age Nick compilation, in case anyone's wondering. YouTube user uploads new silver age Nick recordings every week or so, which means my collection is ever expanding.

Just for the record, even though this era of Nick was past my time, I really do appreciate what you guys are doing. Nostalgia videos are basically my favorite thing on YouTube, and anybody who works to keep nostalgia alive and thriving on YT is cool in my book. 8)

That's strange. Jimmy Neutron ended in 2006, so you'd think that the US Nick still would have aired it up until then. I don't think our Nickelodeon is years behind the US one, but obviously there would be a few differences between the two.

You know, as time goes on I'm starting to doubt 2005 being a silver age Nick year. 2005 was better than 2006 because at least they didn't spam Spongebob yet, but in 2005, Nick was starting to focus less on the Nicktoons and more on the teenybopper sitcoms, which gave it a rather different feel from 2000-2004. Not to mention, Nick Studios closed in 2005, and the Viacom/CBS split happened in 2005 as well.

I'm going to introduce a controversial new theory. How about the late 1999 shift?! :o

I remember when school started back in late 1999 for the first time since Columbine that we had armed resource officers, metal detectors and requirements to wear clear bookbags, all of which had not been the case the previous year. Plus, students were constantly looking over their shoulder expecting some dude in a trench coat to walk in and start shooting up the class any minute. Things never felt quite the same after that. :-\\

No, because 1999 and 2000 are still 90's years. 2001 was mostly a 90's year even early-late 2001 (the first 10 days of late 2001) are still 100% 90's with Nirvana, flannel and grunge but then the twin towers collapsed and Hannah Montana/Jonas Brothers debuted and killed the golden age Disney channel.

A number of changes affected Nick in 05/06; in May 2005, Nickelodeon Studios was shut down. Later, in December 2005, Viacom and CBS split apart. As part of this re-organization of the two companies, Nick's old president Herb Scannell left and took on a new job at the BBC Worldwide.

Cyma Zarghami, who was the Vice President during Nick's silver age, took over as President in January 2006 and, some would argue, messed everything up by replacing the variety in their schedule with endless SpongeBob reruns(which still affects Nick to this day), as well as less favored shows like Naked Brothers Band, Fanboy and Chum Chum, Tak and the Power of Juju, and Back to the Barnyard. She also cancelled Danny Phantom prematurely which was why the third season was so rushed and lame.

Though, one could argue Herb was already on his way to ruining Nickelodeon anyways or at least "selling out". By Late 2004-2005, Nick was already focusing less on the Nicktoons and more on teenybopper sitcoms. SNICK, U-Pick Live, and Friday Night Nicktoons were already gone when he resigned, and he was the one who closed Nick Studios back in 05 because he didn't like Florida. Plus he screwed Invader Zim's chances of success back in 2002 and nobody liked that.

Probably. Nick, CN, and the other kids' networks went through big changes in 2004, we all know this already. Though to be fair, most of the things they got rid of had been around since circa 1997; it was seven years of more or less the same-old same-old, so they probably thought it was time for a change.

Of course they couldn't say anything bad about Bush because it's a kids network, and they would've probably lost advertisers if they did.

Part of it could be because of how popular Bush was at the time. Bush had about a 70% approval rating throughout most of 2003, especially around the time the Iraq War started. I remember the days when, if you said anything negative about Bush, you were immediately branded as unpatriotic. Nickelodeon would've been destroyed if they'd attacked Bush in 2003.

On the flip side, Trump is quite unpopular right now, really with everybody outside of his core supporters. His approval ratings is at about 40%, and I expect it to be even lower than that before long.

I'm actually surprised that they brought it back for 2016 given how controversial this election was. I would've assumed that they would've just thought it best to ignore the whole thing and avoid stirring up any trouble.

1995 was a great Nick year, too. I always thought 1996 was a contender as well. Truthfully, any year between 1994-1996 could be considered the best.

Very good point. If you actually go onto the videos on YouTube you'll notice that the Trump had more likes than dislikes, while the Hillary video had more dislikes than likes. I was actually pretty surprised given how Clinton was ahead of Trump in the polls for the majority of the election year. This was evident when during the election she won the popular vote by about 3 million votes.

Yeah I have to agree, the mid 90's was the pinnacle of quality for the network! Also don't worry we know you're just kidding ;D


Just to re-assure you guys, I am still working on the silver age Nick compilation.

And no this isn't like Duke Nukem Forver where it's something that will never come out, it WILL come out. I've already flushed out the 2003-2005 videos on Youtube, now on to the 2000-2002 ones.


As long as you get it out before Kingdom Hearts III and Half Life 3, I'll be happy!

Very good point. If you actually go onto the videos on YouTube you'll notice that the Trump had more likes than dislikes, while the Hillary video had more dislikes than likes. I was actually pretty surprised given how Clinton was ahead of Trump in the polls for the majority of the election year. This was evident when during the election she won the popular vote by about 3 million votes.


Probably trolls from /r/The_Donald. They bomb pretty much every Trump video on YouTube with likes. It's actually kind of sad.

I loved Kingdom Hearts 1 & 2 as well! It was either Kingdom Hearts or Final Fantasy X (don't exactly remember which) that were the first RPGs I beaten, I think around 2004/5. After that, I then played FF7, FF8, & FF9 all on PS1, however, it took years for me to beat those games, but I eventually did!

Absolutely. Bob Dole was way too old to be President by that point, and the country was in really good shape in 1996 economically, so I'm fairly sure I would've voted for Clinton if I'd been 18.

Though, it is interesting to think. If Dole had won, then George W. Bush wouldn't have been President on 9/11, which means that the Iraq War probably doesn't happen, Barack Obama doesn't get elected in 2008, and, most likely, Donald Trump doesn't get elected in 2016. Interesting how a single election can change everything like that!

Yeah those games were my childhood and got me into the RPG genre.

Also I voted for Jill Stein and I voted for Bernie during the primary. I was actually a stanch Libertarian before Bernie's run as I voted for mostly Republicans during the 2014 Midterms. However, in 2015 when I discovered Bernie was running I was skeptical at first about his 'Democratic Socialism'. However, after doing extensive research I came to fully better understand his policies and the nuance of different forms of socialism. I'll admit I used to be one of those 'Socialism is EVIL!!!' kind of people.

So if Bernie was able to convert Right-Libertarian me into a Left-Libertarian (take the political compass test to learn more and see where you stand, however based on my periceved understanding you'd probably also be a left-libertarian), then he'd have to charismatic in one shape or another. Even if you weren't a big fan of his campaign style, I understand his 'Brooklyn-Like Tell it Like it Is' swag wasn't for everybody, he just seemed to be the most authentic out of all of the candidates.

I agree about that. 2014 with the Ukranian tension, Elliot Rodger's rampage, the rise of the BLM movement (Black Lives Matter IMO is a black equivalent to the alt-right), the Ferguson riots, and the rise of ISIS really made me involved in politics even more.

I doubt that Dole would've invaded Iraq, since he very likely wouldn't have had the likes of Cheney and Rumsfeld on his cabinet. Since you would've had a two term Republican President, a Democrat probably gets elected in 2004, perhaps Gore or Kerry, and they get blamed for the late '00s recession. A Republican probably gets elected in 2008, and Donald Trump is almost certainly not President right now. In fact, Obama could actually just be taking office in 2017 under this scenario!

You know, 2016 was such a divisive election, that it's kind of made 2004 seem quaint by comparison, but that wasn't the case at the time. In 2004, Democrats hated Bush with a passion and viewed him as a stupid, extreme religious warmonger. Meanwhile, Republicans hated Kerry and thought of him as an uber liberal elitest snob who was way too soft on terrorism. I remember people basically guaranteeing that there would be another 9/11 if Kerry got elected, while others were saying that we would go to war with Iran if Bush got a second term.

Yeah people tend to forget how divisive the 2000's were politically. I vividly remember my mom,a staunch democrat all of her life, being utterly upset when Bush was re-elected in 2004.

However it seemed by around 2006, everybody, minus Republican loyalists,  seemed to hate Bush with a passion. So much so that the Democrats won back congress in 2006 and the President in 2008.

I think a similar phenomenon is currently happening right now as Trump is barely at 40% approval rating, only 4 months into his presidency!!!

The Democrats were much more united in 2006 and 2008 than today. Also, the Democratic Party has lost so many seats at all governmental levels since 2010. I have never seen the party I support so divided and "hallowed out". I don't think the Dems will win back Congress in 2018 but I do think that there will be a Democrat elected as President in 2020.

The Democrats were much more united in 2006 and 2008 than today. Also, the Democratic Party has lost so many seats at all governmental levels since 2010. I have never seen the party I support so divided and "hallowed out". I don't think the Dems will win back Congress in 2018 but I do think that there will be a Democrat elected as President in 2020.


Or unless they grow more balls around the early 2020s, where they finally get seats back in Congress and a new President. Hopefully, it would be Joe Biden who would run as president because Hilary and Bernie wouldn't be that efficient within the party at the time.

Joe Biden would be very old by then though. Heck he'd be 78 in 2020, older than Bernie was in 2016.

Btw is it just me Zelek, or did you also notice how all of the change between all of the major kid channels happen usually in or around during election years?

1996:

-The Last full classic Year for Old a School The Disney Channel

-Last year for classic Nickelodeon shows like Ren & Stimpy, Rocko's Modern Life, Pete & Pete; the premiere of shows like Hey Arnold, Blues Clues; Nick's first theatrical film Harriet Spy

-The Last full Checkerboard Year for Cartoon Network


2004:

-Toon Disney Launches Jetix, starting the decline of its reruns of Disney Afternoon and OSM programming

-Nickelodeon ends most of their 90's reruns of Ren & Stimpy, Rocko, Doug, etc.; Hey Arnold, Rugrats, Rocket Power, and Wild Thornberry's end; SNICK ends, Last year for Classic Spongebob

-Cartoon Network transitions from the Powerhouse Era into the City Era; most 50's-80's cartoon reruns are now officially on Boomerang

Never noticed it before. Should be noted though, that many major changes to kids programming (i.e. Disney Afternoon being replaced with One Saturday Morning, Cartoon Network introducing the "Cartoon Cartoons" brand in July 1997, etc.) happened in the Late 1997-Early 1998 season, which was NOT an election year.

I was 8 in 2004 and I never payed attention to that election either, let alone politics. I was just in my peak childhood paying attention to kid stuff. The first election that I remember is the 2008 one, and part of that is because it was so historical. I believed Obama was going to win it all when I first heard about him in the primaries back in early 2008.

That's funny. I was a similar age to you in 2004, and that was the first election I paid attention to, maybe thanks to my mom. Our school had a "Kids Vote" program, and I voted for John Kerry (I was told the kids' votes were actually counted in the "real" election totals nationwide, but that was probably a lie). Mostly because my mom hated Bush and wanted Kerry to win. :P

In addition to the JibJab video mentioned above, my nana also sent us this during the election:

I guess the Democrats aren't really going to get a strong candidate by the 2020 election. For anything, I really wanted somebody other than Hilary Clinton (who's basically ammo for radical feminists) to fight for the Democrats. The 2016 election is the reason why I'm currently a political independent, since everybody who supports the Democrats are either insane feminists or people who basically attack racists for no logical reason whatsoever. The Republicans are probably more sane, but they're more supported by neo-Nazis, Klansmen, and white supremacists altogether now.

I don't know what you mean by "grow more balls" but the Dems should definitely get away from social issues and put economic issues to the forefront.

Joe Biden will be way too old in 2020 and I wouldn't vote for him.

1. "everybody who supports the Democrats are either insane feminists or people who basically attack racists for no logical reason whatsoever." That is totally false and untrue. Also, um.....if you're a racist...you better expect people attack you (not physically...verbally) for being a disgusting person.

Frankly, I wouldn't really take my previous message by heart. I didn't say that I was a racist, considering I'm mixed race and I have no other choice. But I basically say that because I don't like a lot of politics. Which is probably why I sometimes generalize both major political parties. Not to mention that both Democrats and Republicans have been bickering each other, which really dissatisfies me within politics.

Anyways, bickering is always apart of politics (besides dictatorships). That's what political parties are for...bickering over who is "right". Sometimes, one party is right over the other, sometimes both parties are right and there are other times when both parties are wrong.

Yeah people tend to forget how divisive the 2000's were politically. I vividly remember my mom,a staunch democrat all of her life, being utterly upset when Bush was re-elected in 2004.

However it seemed by around 2006, everybody, minus Republican loyalists,  seemed to hate Bush with a passion. So much so that the Democrats won back congress in 2006 and the President in 2008.

I think a similar phenomenon is currently happening right now as Trump is barely at 40% approval rating, only 4 months into his presidency!!!

Hmmm... could pop culture changing around late 2006 perhaps coincide with the Bush administration's record low popularity and the Democrats taking back Congress?

Under the Republicans' watch, we got Malcolm in the Middle. Under the Democrats' watch, we got Hannah Montana. A great difference in era, tone, and feel there, even if they were a mere 6 years apart.

You'll have some sane people in both parties.

The Republican Party, however, is supported by the alt-right and Klansmen.
The Democrat Party, however, is supported by SJWs and feminists.

Believe it or not, the alt-right and SJWs probably only make up of less than 5% of their respected parties at most. Maybe even less. Normal Republicans and Democrats don't want to be associated with either one.

That might be true, but most of them just make the country divided where it seems like a problem now. The last thing that I wanna think about is another civil war, especially since our current president thinks that the American Civil War could've been stopped with Andrew Jackson, which is false.

That is exactly their goal - to divide the country. Additionally, both the SJWs and the alt-right are power-hungry and advocate big government. Both want the government to do everything for them.

I think Nick in 2005-2006 would've felt less "bland" and more "flavorful" if those shows/things were kept around a little while longer.

Also, I would've had it so Cyma zarghami didn't take over Nick until 2007 instead of 2006, and Nick Studios would shut down in 2007 instead of 2005. Then the entire mid 2000s would fit neatly into the silver age of Nick, not just part of it.

In my ideal universe, new episodes of Danny Phantom and Avatar would coexist with new episodes of Rocket Power, creating a dynamic duo of early 2000s xtreme and mid 2000s action.

CatDog had a similar problem. It only had 8 episodes for season 4 (compared to the 20 each seasons before), and yet it took nearly 5 full years to finish airing it, finally completing in 2005. With no announcement.

All Grown Up(meh, not my favorite show) premiered its fourth and final season in October 2005, and one would expect it to logically finish up in early 2006, right? Wrong. Nick put the series on hiatus, then aired one new episode in November 2006. Then it went on hiatus again. Then they aired some new episodes in November 2007. Then it went on hiatus again again. Then they aired the final three episodes in August 2008.

Dell should've made things more cool during the mid 2000s, like having cool OEM accessories on Windows 2000/Windows XP systems. But I guess they would've been known as controversial as Packard Bell, where they put in unnecessary applications into their computers.

Nick in mid-late 2005 already did seem to be heading in the blander, teenybopper direction that it would further pursue in 2006, despite Cyma Zarghami not being in the hot seat yet. Herb also closed Nick Studios in 2005 because he hated Flordia, which was arguably one of his poorest decisions.

Honestly the theme song is pretty good! However as a kid I always found the show a tad bit boring I guess. I'd have to give it another watch though so I could get a balanced judgement.

I believe As Told by Ginger would have been more successful with the boy audience if the girls looked cute and not hideous. The show already had character development, story arcs, surprisingly mature themes, an autumnal feel, even some humor (Carl and Hoodsie), etc. which won it some acclaim, but it would've had even more acclaim with boys if it had cute and not hideous-looking girls, I think.
