TeenNick Fuels Fan Frenzy for "The '90s Are All That" with Addition of "Hey Arnold!" and "Rocko's Modern Life"

Two More Classic Nick Hits Join Two-Hour Weeknight Block Beginning Sept. 5

NEW YORK, Aug. 24, 2011 -- TeenNick stokes fan demand for more '90s shows with the addition of two new series to the network's buzzworthy "The '90s Are All That" two-hour programming block. The new lineup of iconic Nickelodeon '90s shows kicks off Monday, Sept. 5, with back-to back episodes of the popular animated series Rocko's Modern Life and Hey Arnold! at 12 a.m. and 1 a.m., respectively (all times ET). Added by viewers' request, Rocko and Hey Arnold! will regularly join All That and Kenan & Kel starting Tuesday, Sept. 6, in the block's 1 a.m. and 1:30 a.m. timeslots. The block also features deeply integrated, fan-driven social media components on Facebook (www.facebook.com/90sAreAllThat) and at www.90sAreAllThat.com. "The '90s Are All That" airs Monday-Friday 12-2 a.m. with replays 2-4 a.m. on TeenNick.

Rocko's Modern Life, an animated series that offers a satirical view on everyday living for an Australian-born wallaby named Rocko, originally ran for 11 years on Nickelodeon. It is further distinguished as the show where future SpongeBob SquarePants creator Stephen Hillenburg first met voice actor Tom Kenny (voice of Heffer), who would later become the inspiration for SpongeBob and create the character's inimitable voice. With its off-kilter humor and a theme song performed by the B52's, the series follows Rocko who explores his new life in the city of O-Town and his friendships with a gluttonous steer Heffer (Kenny); a neurotic turtle Filburt (Mr. Lawrence, voice of Plankton on SpongeBob SquarePants); and Rocko's faithful dog, Spunky.

One of the cornerstone animated series in Nickelodeon's successful launch into prime-time in 1996, Hey Arnold! focuses on the daily life of Arnold--a fourth-grader with a wild imagination, street smarts and a head shaped like a football. Created by Craig Bartlett, who came to Nickelodeon as a story editor for the network's hit animated series Rugrats, and later as a director for The Ren & Stimpy Show, Hey Arnold! is set in a world of subways and sandlot baseball, of bus stops and rooftops and presents a fresh look at life in the big city as seen from a kids' point of view. Arnold has been an important character in the Nickelodeon family and is part of the Nickelodeon legacy of popular, original animation.

Nickelodeon has ranked as the top-rated basic cable network with kids and total viewers for the last 16 years - since 1995, the longest run of its kind. The 1990s represent Nickelodeon's first major expansion into original programming and content spanning multiple genres - animation, live-action, preschool, game shows, awards shows, feature films, news and pro-social campaigns - across both television and the internet. The '90s also saw the opening of Nickelodeon Studios in Orlando, Fla., where the network's sitcoms and game shows were made before moving to Los Angeles; and the Nickelodeon Animation Studio in Burbank, Calif., where today more than 450 episodes of new animation are being produced, the largest amount in the network's history.

With Nickelodeon's first foray into original programming in 1991 -- the animated hit series Ren & Stimpy, Doug and Rugrats--the network launched a new television era of original programming for kids, as well as creating a pipeline of groundbreaking animation that continues through today. Nick's innovations in the world of live-action have also yielded a score of defining hits, ranging from the 1990s' All That and Clarissa Explains It All, to today's iCarly, Victorious and Big Time Rush. Nickelodeon's stars from the '90s to now have also gone on to have major entertainment careers, with a roll call of names including Kenan Thompson, Amanda Bynes, Nick Cannon, Mike O'Malley, Miranda Cosgrove, Victoria Justice, Drake Bell, Josh Peck and the members of Big Time Rush, among many others.
