Hey, there, everyone! I just joined the community, so I though I'd write a little something about myself.

As a little kid growing up in the 80s, Nickelodeon was one of the channels that made up my TV diet. Pinwheel Playhouse, Today's Special, The Monkees, Mysterious Cities of Gold, Mr. Wizard's World, You Can't Do That On Television, Out of Control, Danger Mouse, Banana Man, Count Duckula...they were all my favorites!

I enjoyed watching the classic shows on Nick at Nite just as much. I can clearly remember wishing I had a talking horse just like Mr. Ed, lol!

Anyway, I'm really looking forward to talking about 80s Nick with everyone here.

hello all

I'm so glad I found this community! It makes me really quite sad that what I consider quality TV shows aren't on at all anymore. My absolute favorite Nick @ Nite show growing up was Bewitched. I also enjoyed I Love Lucy, Mary Tyler Moore, and I Dream of Jeannie. I can still picture the screen they'd show with the line-up for the night from around 8 or 9 until 1 or 2 AM. And I miss Block Party Summer!!!

great great great.

I found some nick shorts from back in the day...


I'm still looking for :

Fast Food and Grace which can be described on this site http://www.crowncombo.com/articles/2006/005_nickshorts/shorts.html

anyway. Does anyone else remember the short that Pixar did in the maybe late 80's early 90's that looked like an adult something or other and a child made out of toobers and zots or something like that. anyway. I remember the kid one was acting all silly and the adult one would shake it head like "now stop that." and every time the adult one would turn around the kid would do something silly behind it's back to kind of mock it. and then the adult one would turn around real fast and the kid was acting like it wasn't doing anything....

you know what one I'm talking about?! I saw a web page about it a long time ago but I guess I didn't bookmark it because I'm lame.... :-(

Hi everyone! Just wanted to say hi and tell a little about myself. I used to survive on Nick @ Nite when I was kid. I really loved The Patty Duke Show, Laugh-In, The Monkees, The Donna Reed Show & The Danny Thomas Show among others. I would love to see these on on dvd but I guess they're too busy putting out such classics as The O.C. Anyhow, I remember this show called "Mad Movies" that was on Nick where comedians would dub their voices over old movies. I've never seen it since. I'm very happy to find this community and look forward to meeting some fellow classic TV fans.

"Hi, Bob!"

What a treat it is to find this group! Hello everyone. I'm Rich, I was born in '85, and I remember the late '80s Nickelodeon and Nick at Nite.

I remember when Nick would show Inspector Gadget (do they still?), The Monkees (Mike Nesmith's hat fascinated me as a small child, and it still does), the Star Trek cartoon (which I found boring at the time, but now I wish it was back), Total Panic, Finders Keepers (that was a Nick show, right?), The Lost Cities of Gold (or something like that. I made my parents crazy by asking them to draw it. It's a long story, LOL), The Little Prince, Maya the Bee, The Li'l Bits, Today's Special, Special Delivery (that was a show, right? I remember it as a boring 2 hours where I had to keep myself busy until the good TV came back). I don't remember Pinwheel, but I do remember when Eureeka's Castle was brand new.

And that's just Nickelodeon.

Nick at Nite was by far the single most important factor in my life. LOL! I remember Get Smart, Mr. Ed, Donna Reed, Mad Movies (I didn't "get" the show, but I remember it. I think it was on later at night, so I'd only see it if I happened to wake up in the middle of the night and turn the TV on.), Mork and Mindy (in fact, I remember that it was on both Nick at Nite AND Nickelodeon), and the two most important shows I have ever seen, the two shows that shaped my comedic identity: the old episodes of SNL and SCTV. Ooohhh, I LOVED them! And because many of the cast members of both shows had successful movie careers by then, I recognized them. Steve Martin (not a cast member, but frequent host), Chevy Chase, Bill Murray (my second-favorite Ghostbuster, behind Harold Ramis), Dan Aykroyd (my third favorite Ghostbuster), John Candy, Rick Moranis, and Martin Short.

Oh man, so many great memories. Thank you for letting me re-live them. OH! What was that show about the kid and the dog, and they were searching for something...the kid's parents I think? I remember that one too. And Kid's Court ("Fair or Unfair? UNFAIR!") Well, that's it for me for now. Thank you all once again. This is your announcer Harvey saying goodbye!
