This era of TV we are in now is in no comparison to what we grew up with as kids. Back when cable was a thing. Now you have streaming services and let’s be real here, there may be more quantity as far as options go but that doesn’t always mean the movies and TV shows available are of the highest quality.

That could be a biased statement but who doesn’t remember waking up on a Saturday morning and turning on your favorite Nickelodeon cartoon with a bowl of cereal in hand? Do you even know what kids are watching these days? There is a reason why people keep talking about shows from back in the day that they loved, because the content now doesn’t hold a candle to what we had back in those days.

With that said, it’s time to get nostalgic and look back at some of the best and most iconic 90s and 2000s Nickelodeon cartoons and shows.
