"The nature of nostalgia is that it seems to infuse life with a kind of added richness and charge because it’s being processed through memory. And often we sort of wish that present day life had that charge."
The 90s Are All That is such a hit for TeenNick that they have bumped it up from 12 am to 10 pm every night of the week. After midnight was an easy time slot with little competition, but starting this Friday, your nostalgia will go head to head with the likes of Jon Stewart, Conan O’Brien, Adult Swim, and everything else on at that earlier still primetime hour. This just got way interesting.
Hey Dude will now have a much-coveted spot in the lineup, alongside All That, Kenan & Kel and Doug. And Stick Stickly – aka the famous popsicle stick from the ’90s — who make a triumphant return to host a new interactive segment called “UPick with Stick.” Every Friday night, Stick (voiced by Paul Christie, who first originated the role for Nick) will highlight ’90s Nickelodeon episodes chosen by viewers via Facebook and www.90sAreAllThat.com.
The networks used to show extended self promotion ads like this all the time. Could you imagine something like this today? And now I have “American is watching ABC!” stuck in my head.
I did this. Still not sure how I feel about it.

Today’s installment comes from salvationpretty. It’s a photo of her and her Cabbage Patch Kid, looking like they are on a date. Note the hand-knitted clothes, courtesy of Grandma. My CPK’s name was Minnie Kathy. I can still smell her face (what was that?!). My brother’s CPK was named Jack Chuck. Throughout the mid-80’s we also opened our home to an adorably mulatto Koosa, and a sadly under-incubated Preemie.
Did you have a CPK? What was his/her name?
