Have you heard the news? Nickelodeon will soon start airing a programming block called “The Splat,” which will exclusively feature the network's beloved 1990s shows like Rugrats, Catdog, Angry Beavers, and more. Nickelodeon has just announced all of the details on the block, including scheduling information.
The Splat will begin on October 5 as an eight-hour block that airs daily on TeenNick from 10:00pm – 6:00am ET/PT. There's also an online component called TheSplat.com with social features, as well as a presence on most social media platforms. In a neat addition to the block, “The Splat Emoji keyboard” will launch on iTunes and Android in October.
To start, The Splat will feature classic episodes of All That, Angry Beavers, Are You Afraid of the Dark, CatDog, Clarissa Explains It All, Hey Arnold!, Hey Dude, Kenan & Kel (timely), Ren & Stimpy, Legends of the Hidden Temple, Rocko’s Modern Life, Rugrats, Salute Your Shorts, and The Wild Thornberrys. More series will begin to air as the year continues. As unlikely as it is, we're still hoping that Doug makes it into the lineup.
The Splat will also feature themed weeks. “First Time for Everything” begins on the week of October 5 and will include “fan favorite” episodes. “Rugrats Reptar Takeover” airs on the week of October 12, “Hey Arnold! Live from the Stoop” begins on October 19, and “Nick or Treat” on October 26.
