Go grab a case of totally healthy and definitely vegan orange soda, because Nickelodeon has finally revealed what all this "The Splat" business is really about. After nostalgia-proof cynics balked at the notion of an entire channel dedicated to the legendary network's esteemed batch of undeniable 90s classics before unabashedly gushing over that perfect Good Burger reunion on Wednesday's Tonight Show, Nickelodeon has announced a new eight-hour programming block of pure 90s masterpieces:
Nickelodeon will throw back to the ‘90s every day with the launch of ‘The Splat,’ a new multiscreen content destination spanning television, seven social media platforms, and a dedicated website aggregating the most loved Nick content from the 1990s and beyond.
So, what does that mean for all the hesitant cord-cutters out there? That means All That, Hey Arnold!, Legends of the Hidden Temple, The Angry Beavers, Salute Your Shorts, Rugrats, Rocko's Modern Life, Kenan & Kel, and every other imaginable 90s classic will be readily available all week long via the already esteemed TeenNick. Though this sadly means that any emotional pleas for an all-90s channel have now been swiftly destroyed, this eight-hour block should keep orange soda addicts more than satisfied:
The Splat will run from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. EST beginning on October 5, according to Us Weekly, in addition to a near-constant presence via the aforementioned "multiscreen content" on Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and a currently relatively barren official website. In addition to that overwhelming slice of joy, Nickelodeon is also planning multiple specials including Rugrats: Reptar Takeover and Hey Arnold! Live from the Stoop.
