If I worked at Nickelodeon, I would totally try to prank 90s nostalgia fiends into thinking that I was launching a new channel with their favorite 90s cartoons.
It's so easy. All you need to do is release the video you see above, chock full of clips from a bunch of 90s Nickelodeon cartoons; attach it to a name like The Splat that reminds us of the 90s Nickelodeon logo; and watch the Internet lose its goddamn mind. The only thing missing here is the smell of Gak being piped in while watching the video (please don't do that Nickelodeon; that sh*t smelled gross).
Several people are freaking out over the idea that there might be an new channel dedicated to 90s Nick. But The Splat is not that. Because, y'know, TV as we know it is dying, and launching a new TV channel right now is kind of a dumb idea. Especially when it would be exclusively showing cartoons that viewers can currently buy on DVD and watch whenever they want. Plus, this person/entity that claims to be in-the-know says it's just going to be a block on Nickelodeon:
Oh, and there's also that whole thing where The Splat's very own Twitter account says that it's going to be airing at midnights on TeenNick:
The Splat doesn't have a launch date yet, but it will be coming sometime. Probably. Unless it's all a prank.
