Top 10 Worst Nickelodeon Moves

Here are Nickelodeon's top ten moves that are so bad, that is not right. Here are the worst moves that Nickelodeon.
The Top Ten
1 The Cancellation of Invader Zim

When someone asks you "What's the best show ever put on Nickelodeon? ", I guarantee that Invader ZiM will run right through your head at least once. Invader ZiM was one of, if not, the best shows that Nickelodeon has ever put out, with amazing writing, a cast of loveable characters, that are still adored, even to this day, hell, they are on T-shirts, they are on lunchboxes, they were on a tun of stuff. There are a lot of YouTube videos constantly replaying old clips from the show's history, because they were so iconic. I can't tell you how many times I've walked around my school, and I see girls with shirts and having bags with GIR on it. GIR is probably the most loved character on the show, and for good reason, GIR was awesome, he practically made this show! When you put GIR and ZiM together, with their amazing voice actors, you get an amazing show! It ran on Nickelodeon for YEARS! And then of course, gone! Nickelodeon, I don't understand why you're thinking here, this was one of ...more

You're probably gonna hate me for this but...I'd never heard of it until I looked it up. I haven't watched one episode of it...I don't know if it was good or not...I know that the only good shows on Nick or that were on it are Robot and Monster, SpongeBob, TMNT 2012 and Avatar the last airbender...

They cancelled Invader Zim because when it was airing, it was really unpopular and it cost about a million dollars to make an episode. But people started watching it in about 2006. They should've rebooted it then

You guys are just wining because a show you liked got cancelled in life your biggest regrets in life is what you didn't do not what did do. If you look deeper you will realize their biggest mistake was rejecting the modifyers phineas and ferb and adventure time

2 Making the Logo Plain and Boring

The old logo was better. It was more creative, and if you change something in either a game, a movie, a series, or a T.V. channel, then you have to ask yourself if
1. it's necessary
2. if it's fun
3. if it fits the subject of the game/channel/series/movies etc.

They completely ruined MQ because they were too desperate for money, and even when they were doing it wrong and we knew what they had to do they still went on desperately with all the parties and advertising for Nick shows.

The reason was the MTV Effect which broke up the Nickelodeon Channel into Sister Channels (Except Nick @ Nite). This was how the splat logo lost its purpose. Later, idiotic Cyma Zarghami failed to understand the purpose of the splat and replaced it with the current logo.

The splat was good as it was! That's what Nickelodeon is known for! Boo to Nickelodeon for getting rid of it supposedly because it was too messy.

It's garbage! Just like how every show these days on Nick are. The start of this logo = dark age of Nick

3 Taking Their '90s Nicktoons Off the Air

The great shows that Nickelodeon put out were CatDog, Rocket Power, Rugrats, and Ren & Stimpy.

Remember Rugrats? It was a simply genius show, making a sitcom out of babies. However, the babies would take everyday tasks, like taking a bath, and taking a nap, and would turn it into epic adventures.
For example: If you had to take a bath, and you didn't want to get in the water, there was a dragon in the water.

There's also Rocket Power. It was a clearly different approach, and the characters were early teenagers, and they were skateboarders. However, it was another cartoon sitcom revolving around extreme sports. This show is awesome and had extremely lovable characters, Tito had the best lines in the show's history.

Well, the time has come for me to say that Nickelodeon is dead. The crazy, cool, weird bumpers were replaced with boring CGI crap. The Nicktoons were replaced with horrible, uncreative, stupid cartoons. Acually, most of their "cartoons" are CGI now. The funny live-action shows were replaced with boring, stupid shows, about whiny teenagers. And all of their game shows are gone. They currently have ZERO game shows. Nickelodeon has gone WAY down hill ever since 2004. Congrats Nick, for screwing over all of your fans.

The good old days were when Kenan and Mel, rugrats, catdog, all that etc was on, the 90s nick shows. But NOW, Nickelodeon has gone way down hill ever since they took most of the good shows off the air. Not ALL of the Nickelodeon shows were horrible after 90s nick was off. For example, Icarly, Victorious, Drake and Josh, and bucket and skinner. But the shows that are STILL GOING ON KNOW, are horrible! For example, Henry Danger, Sanjay and Craig, Bread winners. All horrible. The only show on nickeloden I actually like that's still going on today is Bella and the bulldogs. And if someone who works for Nickelodeon is reading this, then make more shows like Bella and the bull dogs. And some shows go off to early. Like how to rock was on for a YEAR! So my three tips are:
1: Don't make stupid pointless shows
2: Make more shows like Bella and the Bulldogs
3: Don't cancel REALLY popular shows so quickly
Thanks for reading and I hope someone takes my advice!

But remember what happened to SpongeBob and The Fairly OddParents? Chances are, if they kept those shows, they would have turned into huge nuisances you want to take off air. Nickelodeon needs to change every once in a while. Well, actually they have, but they should learn from those mistakes. I also have a feeling that kids don't even like Nickelodeon. They only like it because the "Popular kids" like it, while I despise it.

4 What the Hell Happened to All the Slime?

The slime was what made Nickelodeon famous. The fact that they would dump slime on people. It first started with "You Can't do that on Television", every time a person says "I don't know", slime would be poured on their head. It was also used on the game shows. The only time the slime comes back is with the Kids' Choice Awards. Don't even get me started on that travesty.

The slime in 2017 Kid's Choice Awards existed now.
And still I'm watching it.
So the Slime is back in the air.
I wish in the future maybe the Nick logo will change back to normal but in a whole new level.

Yeah in 2011 there was slime everywhere and it got kinda. Annoying. Now there is no slime I feel bad. Nick deserves it, having horrible shows like breadwinner, fairy show, Fred and more!

The newest game shows don't have any slime, what Nick?

5 The Cancellation of All That

All That was a variety show on Nickelodeon back in 1994. It showed great acts like The Amanda Show, Good Burger, and others. It was so great. It had a huge cult following years after its cancellation online, having people petitioning this show to be back on Nickelodeon.

All That was awesome.

6 The Cancellation of Snick

SNICK was a Saturday night block on Nickelodeon that shows such as Ren & Stimpy, CatDog, Kenan & Kel, and All That. It was a lot like Cartoon Cartoon Fridays, except that it was on Nickelodeon, and aired on Saturdays, rather than Fridays. Just like with Toonami, it got kids really excited on a Saturday night, and just like Toonami again, it vanished. The only difference is Toonami has made its triumph in return. But at least TeenNick will bring it back. They kind of did if I'm not mistaken.

7 Choosing Fanboy & Chum-Chum over Adventure Time

Oh really! Nick got an very nice offer and didn't take it. Adventure Time is a popular show on Cartoon Network and with Gumball makes Cartoon Network at least watchable. IT SAVED Cartoon Network from being trash loaded to the garbage dump. Nick though took Fan Trash and Chump Chump. That show sucks and that show was the ultimate Nickelodeon Downfall. Nick lost popularity by a lot. Nick, what happend to Old Fairly Odd Parents, Jimmy Neutron, and Doug, Rocko and Invader Zim. Just because some idiots say that's inappropriate doesn't mean you have to replace it with crap and now you gave your special oppurtunity to at least get a watchable show and just pissed it to Cartoon Network.

Nick is now like a dry tree, just barren, which used to flourish and all the birds and animals enjoyed it. Now it is dry, lonely and dull, it is gray with none of the beauty which used to make it enchanted. Now it is ignored by the animals, ignored forever, with no hope.

Which leads ...more

This should be number one. Rejecting Adventure Time sent Nick back five years. Cartoon Network got the upper hand due to shows being attracted to it due to Adventure Time's popularity. Had Nickelodeon chosen Adventure Time, Regular Show, Gumball, and Steven Universe would all have been on the channel. 2010 is a year that will live in infamy for the channel. Nick's dead and Adventure Time's success killed it.

Nickelodeon, HOW DUMB CAN YOU BE?! I knew you were offered AT, but I didn't know that the reason you didn't air it was because you chose ' FANBOY AND CHUM CHUM over it. Adventure Time is one of the best shows ever, and it's certainly my favorite show ever. Now you are airing Sanjay and Craig, Breadwinners, and other sucky things? Adventure Time could've saved your channel, Nickelodeon, and you blew it!

I'm not really a fan of Adventure Time, but this was a really bad move made by Nickelodeon. Now that I'm older, I've realized how bad Fanboy & Chum-Chum was. The show was really annoying and childish.

8 Sanjay and Craig Sanjay and Craig Sanjay and Craig is an American animated comedy television series that aired on Nickelodeon from May 25, 2013, to July 29, 2016, for three seasons and 60 episodes. The series is about a 12-year-old boy named Sanjay Patel who owns a talking pet snake named Craig.

I personally think that whoever who came up with the idea of making this stupid pointless show is an IDIOT! This show sucks and it can be a little to offensive some times. Like all the butt comments and jokes they make in the show. Nickelodeon has REALLY gone down hill the past years!

I will bet they were trying to rip off regular show, but I feel like this show is just a compilation of lame butt jokes.

This show deserves to stay down the toilet and be flushed away for good!

I hate Sanjay and Craig the most immature humor ever.

9 Closing Nickelodeon Studios in Orlando

Things started to go downhill in mid 2001. The reason was that 2 studios in Southern California opened in 1998 and most of the shows moved production there including All That and Kenan & Kel. Universal Stuidos Florida also expanded around the same time. I can imagine the studio in Orlando being reopened inn 2019 or 2020 and expanded but this time it only hosts sitcoms, sketch comedy's, and future game shows (if we're lucky enough to gat Cyma Zarghami ever gets fired) and the capsule returns to its original spot. Thank You Gerry Laybourne for all the memories (I never went to Nick Studios Orlando but I'm speaking on everyone's behalf).

Oh god, where do I start? It really grinded my gears when I heard they
closed Nickelodeon Studios (at least I was lucky enough to go there when I was 7 years old, too bad I remember very little of it) You can thank Herb Scannell for that one. I don't want to mean to the guy, or anything like that,
but I guess he just couldn't wait to start dismantling the network's presence in Florida, by starting to
move production out west 20 years ago and get rid of game shows. I'm sure if I became president of the network, I would probably be doing everything I can to reopen Nickelodeon Studios and make it work and reintroduce game shows.

The reason they closed it was it because they did not have so much money to opperate the studio anymore. By Mid 2005 they started to remove the outdoor props and its now next to a Blue Man Group building. They might bring it back. But it might not happen.

Hey American 90s kids are lucky anyway. I would've loved to have gone there when I was kid but they didn't even bother to think about building one in other countries that had the channel.

10 Cancellation of Nickelodeon Gas

Nickelodeon Gas (Games and Sports), a popular block with games and sports, was cancelled, there are no more game shows at all, Nick has sunk toward the bottom and can't float out.

The Contenders
11 Not Listening to Fans

This truly is the biggest mistake they are making. Nick is completely snubbing the advices of all the fans that supported back in the day. And the ones watching Nick now are asking for new and good. It's not like they're enjoying what they're seeing. If you were to ask them what shows they watch now that are airing at the moment, they would most likely say either a show on CTN or DC. At least those programs are listening and putting some effort. And what's really ironic, is if ONLY Nick pays just a little bit of attention to our complaints, that money they crave for would probably come! But nope, they keep denying help, and are in the puddle they are in now, because of bad corporal decisions, stubbornness, and greed.

Yet they decided to make a spin off of SpongeBob SquarePants called Kamp Koral, which shows how much Nickelodeon hates their fans & the creator Stephen Hillenburg. Nickelodeon truly doesn't care about their fans anymore, nothing but $, & they only do worse than better. They're truly sinking to the bottom & heading out of business for that reason. Disney Channel's bad now, but this makes Disney Channel look like a masterpiece.

Nick needs to start listening to fans again, what has killed their brains? Money? Well Nick needs to cut it out with the money and start making good shows again, In fact, I read news reports that they are going to reboot some of the classics again as well as some of the good modern shows, You should be happy about that, so lets celebrate.

If they listened to the fans, they wouldn't make sure every show that's not named SpongeBob or The Loud House gets utterly screwed over. IIRC, they've been doing this since ChalkZone. They only have 4 shows on the daily lineup: SpongeBob, The Loud House, Henry Danger, and The Thundermans. As a fan of SpongeBob, what a terrible lineup!

12 Getting Rid of Noggin

You Shouldn't Be Upset About That because Noggin was only for little kids.

13 Nick Getting a New President

Nickelodeon was such a great channel. I grew up with many classics which are probably about a little over 10 years old. Unfortunately, Cyma Zarghami basically ruined everything and made Nickelodeon go downhill.

Ever since Nick voted Cyma Zarghami as president, the channel went downhill, Nick needs to learn from their mistakes and fire him.

Why are people giving so much heat to her? She at least has dignity unlike Christina Miller.

Cyma is the worst leader I've ever seen.

14 Importing YouTube

Now they have Side Hustle (with 1 of the Bratayley & Chicken Girls members Jules LeBlanc), Baby Shark's Big Show & they're giving Ryan the kid & That Girl Lay Lay their own shows as well, all of which are examples of Nickelodeon not making good ideas anymore.

It's already bad enough we have Nickelodeon importing YouTube. Cartoon Network can't do the same thing that Nickelodeon is doing.

The creator of Breadwinners thought it was a joke when Nick watned to make a series out of the flash video.

Even Lucas regretted working for Nickelodeon.

15 No More Game Shows

The first awesome game show was Double Dare! Double Dare was simply amazing! You get a bunch of families, they do wacky things on stage, you get pied, you get slimed, you have crap always thrown at you, and you're always earning money. Every single game show that Nickelodeon made was amazing. They deserve some reruns.

What! This is a good thing! All there game shows last like 1 month and are lame!

Yeah! They were amazing especially double dare! But now it's plain and lame and BORING

I liked to play with them to see how many a could get right!

16 Replacing Good Sitcoms With Bad Sitcoms

Nickelodeon used to make good sitcoms in the 90s, but then Dan Schneider, the fat kid, put sitcoms on the channel that were REALLY BAD, except for Zoey 101, but all the others such as Drake & Josh, iCarly, Victorious, Sam & Cat & Henry Danger were bad, even the ones from another person were bad, like Fred: The Show, Marvin Marvin, Bucket & Skinner's Epic Adventures, How to Rock, Nicky Ricky Dicky & Dawn & Max & Shred, there is only one good sitcom unlike all the other crap that's on that has one month seasons, Every Witch Way, now THAT one is good, but all of the others are TOTAL BULLCRAP!

The best shows ever put on Nickelodeon are Zoey 101, Drake and Josh, and Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide. And now they were replaced by iCarly, True Jackson, Victorious, and other boring live-action shows.

How does Scott Fellows go from making a classic like Ned's Declassified to making shameless rip-offs like 100 Things? Scott Fellows needs to retire.

How can Dan Schneider go from the good shows like Drake and Josh and iCarly and turn them into crap like Victorious and Sam and Cat.

17 Waiting for Steven Hillenburg to die to create a Spongebob spinoff he wouldn't approve of

Please vote for this higher. Stephen Hillenburg himself said that he will not tolerate any Spongebob spin-off but after his death, Nickelodeon announced a spin-off called Kamp Koral. This is a huge disgrace to Stephen Hillenburg's grave. It makes me feel that Nickelodeon waited for Hillenburg to die so that they can take advantage and make a spin-off of Spongebob as their new cash cow. If we all love Stephen Hillenburg, we have to boycott Kamp Koral.

This is now Nickelodeon's biggest mistake. They don't care about their fans anymore & wanted him to die just to make a spin off he & his fans didn't want. It's a hate crime they're committing & one that'll never lead to charges. P.S. Now there's another spinoff show called the Patrick Star Show & it's certainly messy & something he didn't approve either.

Geez. This is so disrespectful!

18 Breadwinners Breadwinners Breadwinners is an American animated television series created by Gary "Doodles" DiRaffaele and Steve Borst for Nickelodeon. ...read more.

The only thing that's bad about it is all the butt jokes and horrible humor. If they got rid of all that, I would actually like the show.

Seriously, Nick, were you even trying with this show?

They weren't trying with this. I'm glad it's ending.

I know it's the worst

19 Cancelling Shows Like El Tigre, Jimmy Neutron, Danny Phantom, Making Fiends, and Edgar and Ellen

It was a huge mistake for Nickelodeon to cancel Danny Phantom! After the show got canceled it made way for what we now know today! Plus they removed it from Nicktoons just to put the stupid shows! I wish Danny Phantom came back but unfortunately the creator left Nick, and Nick to be revived is about 1%... Why does Nick want to be the new Cartoon Network?! I just don't get it...

Even now, I watch these cartoons very often, because the older cartoons could be interesting and funny without being inappropriate and disgusting. That is what makes these cartoons much better than the newer ones!

These shows were basically my life, I lived and breathed these shows as a kid. Nick is retarded for cancelling these shows and now they're paying for it by making crappy shows that get crappy ratings (but I think that's changing since I just saw el tigre on nicktoons every once in a while)

They cancel these shows yet continue to air other bad shows such as Sanjay and Craig, Breadwinners, Pig, Goat, Banana, Cricket, etc. Geez why!?

20 Canceling As Told by Ginger

This was my favorite why did they have to end it?

21 Getting Rid of Nick Jr.'s Beloved Mascot, Face

I loved when that came up on Nick Jr or Noggins not so good copy. It's a shame they took it away and it feels like Dora is they're new Mascot

Yes, they should bring him back.

Face was the best of nick jr.

He scared me as a child

22 Rejecting Adventure Time

Even though Adventure Time may suck, it isn't nearly as bad as the stuff that is actually on Nick these days.

The closest we have to Adventure Time on Nick, is that one Oh Yeah! Cartoons pilot.

Wether you like it or not you can't deny a lot of people like it.

They had a pilot one on nick and moved it to Cartoon Network.

23 Firing John Kricfalusi from the production of "The Ren & Stimpy Show"

Take this off the list please, that was a good decision because it was not appropriate for kids, it was an adult show like Family Guy.

I wish that boss gives a creator a chance rather than getting fired.
I think it was the writers not the creator himself

The guy who fired him is EVIL & STUPID & the boss needs to get fired as well.

I don't care if Ren and Stimpy was inappropriate. I still like the show.

24 Cancelling Catscratch and The X's after only 1 Season

Catscratch was alright but too short and underrated same with The X's

25 The Cancellation of Rugrats

I like this show, but one episode had a bad ending, which made me like it less.

I watch this show every night before I go to sleep. Maybe because it puts me in a state of mind where I don't have to be thinking like an adult.
I have every single episode
Thank you ioffer.com
