Kids who came of age in the 90s are finally getting to relive their childhood-because Nickelodeon is bringing back their classic 90s cartoons on a new programming block known as "The Splat!"
According to Variety, the block will feature reruns of series from the network's 90s classics beginning in October-meaning that fans of shows like Rugrats, Doug, Hey, Arnold!, Rocko's Modern Life, Ren & Stimpy, The Wild Thornberry's, The Angry Beavers, Aaah Real Monsters, CatDog, Rocket Power and KaBlam! could relive their childhoods when some of these shows once again take to the airwaves.
Naturally, fans are freaking out on social media about the news, with many expressing excitement that they can finally see the shows again, after a long amount of time of having to go without them:
Nickelodeon is creating an entire new channel dedicated to airing their old shows. Excuse me while I cry out of sheer joy.
