Heads up ’90s kids: the nostalgia train is coming.
Nickelodeon has just announced that it is launching a new programming block on their TV channel called “The Splat,” which will run back-to-back old 1990s cartoons from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.

As weird as it is to admit it, this news might be embarrassingly relevant to our college campus, as a lot of us here might be at that sweet spot age where we remember these old shows quite fondly.
According to a Sept. 13 article from Zimbio, shows like “Rugrats,” “Hey Arnold!,” “Rocket Power,” “CatDog,” and “The Wild Thornberries,” are to be included.
