Subject: The Legacy of Nickelodeon Studios

Written By: ZeldaFan20 on 06/17/18 at 9:10 am

When Nickelodeon's popularity rose immensely in the mid-late 1980s, the channel, aka "The First Network for Kids", launched many iconic Nickelodeon staples. 'Slime' via the show You Can't Do That On Television, the first Kids Choice Awards in 1988, the iconic orange 'Splat' logo debuting in 1984, and of course the launch of Nickelodeon Studios in 1990.

The purpose of this thread is to talk about the magic that was Nickelodeon Studios. For the younglins out there, Nickelodeon Studios was a real-life recording studio in Universal Studios Orlando Florida which allowed their guests (primarily kids) to partake in live games, contests, events, and other activities for many of Nick's various live action shows at the time. Most notably, shows like Legends of the Hidden Temple, Double Dare, Figure it Out, Nickelodeon Arcade and Slime Time Live, to name a few, were filmed at this awesome location.


Overall, for many Millennials growing up as children in the 1990s & 2000s, this was the equivalent of us going to Disney World (well, perhaps that's a bit hyperbolic, but I digress), as we got to see live performances of some of our favorite game shows (like the ones listed above) and even popular sketch shows/sitcoms like Clarissa Explains it All, All That, Kenan & Kel, and Taina.

This guy gives a pretty detailed analysis on the rise and fall of Nickelodeon Studios in the 1990s:
