    Well, Nick as a whole has been terrible to it's shows for years. And they still air Spongebob way too much. Also, every last one of their live action shows suck. However, the network does still have a few good cartoons like "Harvey Beaks" which has a lot of heart, humor and a beautiful soundtrack and fantastic background art. And there's "The Loud House" and "Alvinnn" which are both pretty good shows, although, some episodes are weaker than others.
    But other than those three shows, not much worth watching anymore.

    As C.H. Greenblatt said in an interview, it's the animation studio that's nurturing to their shows. The network, on the other hand, does everything in its power to sabotage them, barring a few obvious exceptions.

    That's the way it is and has been for years now: networks don't give a hoot about anything other than fulfilling their own corporate agenda.

    Oh, and I forgot about "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles", that's a pretty good show too. Although, once again, they hardly ever show it anymore.
    Yeah, it's a bit like a parent raising their kid, and than the kid is excepted into a college, and the college pretends to be excited for the kid to be there, only for that college to kick that kid out on the streets because it refuses to pay for building his dorm room.

    But Nickelodeon is a special case. I mean sure, some networks treat their shows like crap (I'm lookin' at you FOX, thanks for screwing over "Firefly"), but most networks at least give some of their shows the chance to get successful, and usually they recognize when something works. Nickelodeon doesn't seem to care at all. What could they possibly be gaining by putting money into several shows a year and then refusing to give them the time of day so that it can actually earn them some money? Cartoon Network doesn't treat their shows this badly, even Disney Channel treats their cartoons that they barely air much better than Nick does.

    Rarely. It's more common for networks to go ahead and yank a show after just a few episodes if they feel it's living up to whatever standards they were holding the new show to in the first place.

    Just finished benge watching all of Hey Arnold!

    Man, those two episodes about Arnold's parents - "Parents Day" and the infamous "Journal" episode... Well, let's just say I was chopping onions while watching both.

    Anyway, more excited for "The Jungle Movie" than ever. Something like this rarely happens - a studio or network agreeing to green light a cancelled project after nearly 15 years. I have to give Nickelodeon a lot of credit here.

    I just love that show so much. One of my favorite Nicktoons as a matter of fact. You gotta love all of the characters.

    Craig Bartlett must have twisted the CEO's arm so much he ripped the flesh right off. Same goes for Genndy Tartakovsky and Samurai Jack for CN.

    Now can Craig McCracken complete the trifecta and do that for Wander Over Yonder? :D

    Spent the last few months putting this together. Every episode of Hey Arnold! to feature someone uttering the title of the show.

    Yahoo! Preview of the new Rocko's Modern Life movie - an extremely clever satire on modern technology - naturally.

    Wow, that was a hoot! It feels just like a lost episode of the show. And i'm happy the animation looks the same, except in HD! :excited:

    Am I imagining things, or do the outlines have that broken, disjointed look like ARTHUR does?

    "This is incredible! Everyone's here!"

    I was a curious about how some of the recast characters would sound. Their new voice actors all fit in beautifully.

    I was also wondering how Craig was going to fit all of those minor characters in, as promised. The solution? Put them all into one scene!

    Definitely looking forward to this movie.
