Top Ten Reasons Why Old Nickelodeon is Better Than Modern Nickelodeon

The Top Ten
1 Better shows

I was born in 2005, but still grew up with the shows of Nickelodeon's golden age (and the iconic splat, of course). Once Nickelodeon changed its logo and shows, I realized that they had lost their appeal because their modern shows have no appeal whatsoever!

They just don't have the spirit of the golden age nowadays. Shows like SpongeBob, Rugrats, Hey Arnold! and The Wild Thornberrys will always be remembered, whereas newer shows come and go, only to be forgotten once they end airing!

Some examples were Legends of the Hidden Temple, Catdog, Rugrats, Ren and Stimpy, and old SpongeBob. Today, it's crap like Breadwinners or Sanjay and Craig.

Now all the shows are about suicide or butts.

3 There was Nick GAS

And they literally screwed it up. Plus, we had Ariana Grande once on Nickelodeon. Disney is better than Nickelodeon, even though it sometimes welcomes Ariana Grande to make my ear bleed big time.

Why can't they bring back Double Dare? They brought back Figure It Out.

Now they joke about gas. I miss old Nick.

4 Better educational programming

Back in the '80s, Nickelodeon aired high-quality educational documentaries. In the '90s and '00s, at least Nick Jr. had highly educational shows. Nowadays, not even the Nick Jr. shows seem to be educational. This is what I have observed at least. - anonygirl

Blue's Clues was a crap show, but at least they didn't have Dora The Explorer at the time.

Yup. Blue's Clues and Jack's Big Music Show were great.

5 It was actually creative

You choose. CatDog and Doug or Sanjay and Craig and Breadwinners. Choose wisely or immediate death (not really).

Now they're just running out of ideas.

6 Less Nick Jr.
7 Better humor
8 Patrick wasn't such a jerk
9 More variety
10 More mature
The Contenders
11 Squidward wasn't tortured as much
12 Better movies
13 No Kids Choice Awards

There were, but they were way better.

14 Better logo

The new logo is just too boring for a channel like Nickelodeon! The old splat logo represents what Nickelodeon should be. It represents the childhood innocence and carefree, whereas the new logo is just a flat word with no heart whatsoever!

15 More timeless

So true. That goes with any other channels like Cartoon Network also.

16 Better Nick Jr. shows
17 No Loud House
18 Better sitcoms

All the Dan Schneider shows like Victorious, Drake and Josh, iCarly, the old All that, and more were good. SpongeBob was also good until Stephen Hillenburg died on November 26th, 2018. They shouldn't have continued without him.
