#TBT: 7 ’90s Nickelodeon Shows That We Grew Up Watching

Nothing takes us back like the old cartoons and TV shows we used to watch as a kid. That’s why we were so stoked to find out that you can now stream a bunch of your favorite Nickelodeon programs from the ’90s, such as Clarissa Explains It All, Keenan and Kel, Doug, Hey Dude, and Rocko’s Modern Life, on VRV’s new NickSplat channel. Here are seven shows you know and love that you can now stream on the platform.

Kenan and Kel

You might be watching Kenan Thompson on Saturday Night Live now, but back in the day, he was one half of the hilarious duo of Keenan and Kel. The teen sitcom aired on Nickelodeon from 1996 to 2001.


If you automatically starting singing the theme song to Doug upon reading this, you are not alone.  The show was a part of many folk’s childhood. It centered around 11-year-old (later 12) Doug Funnie and the life stories that sprung from his journal. Along for the fun is his dog, Porkchop, best friend Skeeter, BFF/crush Patti Mayonaise, and others.

Clarissa Explains It All


Another teen sitcom that was super cool in the ’90s was Clarissa Explains It All. The show aired from 1991 to 1994, and was all about Clarissa Darling’s teenage life.

Hey Dude

Hey Dude brought Southwestern country life into all of our homes. Set in Tucson, Arizona, the show was about the teens who ran the Bar None Dude Ranch. It’s theme song is another one that gets stuck in your head.

Rocko’s Modern Life

Rocko’s Modern Life is an animated show that aired on Nickelodeon from 1993 to 1996. Rocko is an Australian wallaby who, along with his animal friends, lives a crazy life in O-Town.

Salute Your Shorts

Camp Anawanna seemed like the coolest summer camp of all time. It was the setting of Salute Your Shorts, a comedy show that aired on Nickelodeon from 1991 to 1992. Chances are, you know all the words to it’s theme song too.

All That

Ok, I know we keep mentioning theme songs for shows, but they stick with you for years! The theme song for All That was performed by TLC, which made it that much cooler and memorable. That, and a cast of young, talented kids (including Kenan and Kel, Amanda Bynes, and Nick Cannon, and Jamie Lynn Spears) who created their own version of SNL. The show ran for a total of 10 years!
