Listen up, 90s kids.

The spiritual home of nineties nostalgia – NICKELODEON – has all but confirmed that they’ll be launching a new channel streaming nothing but 90s Nickelodeon classics, a.k.a. ‘The Golden Era’.

At some point in the not to distant future, there will (almost definitely) be an entire channel dedicated to Hey Arnold!, Rocket Power, Rugrats, CatDog, The Ren & Stimpy Show, and the greatest show of all, The Wild Thornberrys, because if it wasn’t for that then we’d never have this:

I mean, FFS, just in case you didn’t realise which demographic this new channel was aimed at, Nickelodeon went down to an actual 90s festival for gramming purposes:

But today, they’ve moved on from utterly unsubtle hints to basically just going oh fuck it, this show’s a cert, happy reminiscing, 90s kids.

“Ren’s on board… are you?”

Get your tazos / Pokemon cards / light-up sneakers / 90s token of choice ready, pals, because #TheSplatIsComing… sometime. At this point their website remains frustratingly ambiguous.
