Attention, children of the ’90s: The Internet has provided us with yet another way to relive our childhoods, and this one’s even cooler than nostalgia programming blocks on Nick at Nite: Nick Reboot, a new website that’s livestreaming vintage Nickelodeon shows — commercials included! — for your viewing pleasure.
The shows logged on the site originally aired between the early ’90s and the early ’00s, so there’s a wide range of programming to be had. There’s “Roundhouse,” “You Can’t Do That on Television,” and “Finders Keepers” on one end, and “The Fairly Odd Parents,” “As Told By Ginger,” and “The Wild Thornberrys” on the other.
It’s a particularly great resource for shows like “The Mystery Files of Shelby Woo,” “Space Cases,” “What Would You Do?” or “The Secret Word of Alex Mack,” beloved shows that haven’t aired anywhere recently and are hard to find on DVD. There’s a database of more than 50 shows that are chosen randomly to appear in the queue; naturally it also includes classics like “The Adventures of Pete and Pete,” “Doug” and “Rugrats.”
According to the site, it was designed “solely to provide a medium for commentary, criticism, educational review, and research of Nickelodeon as it was during that time period.” Watch and reminisce about the days when kids would compete for prizes like telescopes or typewriters and where Ronald McDonald starred in most McDonald’s commercials.
If you register, they’ll notify you when your favorite shows are coming up on the queue.
