Nickelodeon To Break Out Old 90s Nicktoons And Series For A New TV Network Called ‘The Splat’

Nickelodeon will break out all the old favorite Nicktoons and series from the 1990s for a new TV network that will be called The Splat.

Viacom, the parent company of Nickelodeon, quietly launched a website and social media campaign teasing “The Splat is Coming” on Friday, but provided scant details about the new network.

The new site features links to its social media sites, along with the hashtag #thesplatiscoming and “follow us to be the first to find out.”

There was also big buzz about The Splat at the 90s Fest in Brooklyn, New York, on Saturday.

The posts about The Splat do not indicate which retro cartoons and series will be featured, but they could very well include favorites like Aaah!!! Real Monsters, Are You Afraid of the Dark?, Rocko’s Modern Life, Doug, Rugrats, Ren and Stimpy, Hey Arnold!, Clarissa Explains It All, and All That, among others.

A verified Twitter account for The Splat posted the following:

The Splat launched a Facebook page on Friday, as well with teasers.

On Saturday, Viacom launched a YouTube channel for The Splat and posted its first video.

In a related article by the Inquisitr, it was reported that Nickelodeon also has big screen plans for ’90s Nick cartoons.

“Paramount, which happens to be a subsidiary of Nickelodeon’s production company Viacom, is currently looking to bring five ’90s Nick TV shows into a ‘Justice League/Avengers’ style crossover film. However, despite it being all ’90s Nick cartoons, it is said to have a blend of animation and live-action. Nickelodeon’s crossover film event is said to be similar to another live-action/cartoon blend from the ’90s, Space Jam.”

Though the details are just as scant as the details for The Splat, Comicbook.com reports that Nickelodeon currently has SpongeBob: Sponge out of Water producer Mary Parent working to bring together all the copyrights for the individual shows. Parent will also produce the ’90s Nick inspired film, if it should come to fruition.
