Happy, Happy! Joy, Joy!! 

Nickelodeon is opening up its vaults and making the dreams of 90s kids come true at San Diego Comic-Con this year.

Nickelodeon and The Splat — the network’s programming block dedicated to Nick’s legendary library of hits from the ‘90s and 2000s — will host a slimetastic, immersive experience at their 1,800-square-footh booth (#4113). Th network will pay tribute to some of its most memorable shows and popular characters with activations, games, panels, talent signings and interactive design elements featuring: “Legends of the Hidden Temple,” Hey Arnold!,” “Rugrats,” “Double Dare,” “Aaahh!!! Real Monsters,” “CatDog,” “Rocko’s Modern Life,” and “Invader Zim,” among many others.

Screen-shot-2013-03-28-at-11-51-55-amNickelodeon will present four panels during the convention: Happy Happy!  Joy Joy!, a look back at 25 years of original Nick animation featuring the creators of Invader ZimHey Arnold! and other legendary series; Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles — Return to New York, an exclusive first look at the current TV season; She Made That?: Nickelodeon hosts Women in Animation, featuring some of the genre’s female pioneers of the past and present; and a special reunion of cast members from legendary kids’ sketch-comedy series All That — with a surprise from Nick’s forthcoming Legends of the Hidden Temple TV movie.

I’m especially pumped about the “All That” reunion. Cast members scheduled to appear include major players Josh Server (Walter the Ear Boy!!), Danny Tamberelli, Lori Beth Denberg and Kel Mitchell. A few surprises are also promised. 
The booth will also feature a 360-degree experience where fans can step into the world of the upcoming “Legends of the Hidden Temple” movie. There will even be a giant Olmec perfect for photo ops. There will also be a replica of the stoop from “Hey Arnold!”
And, as someone who dreamed of running the obstacle course on “Double Dare,” there is going to be supersized nose from the Pick It game! You better believe I’m getting all up in the schnoz for the perfect photo.
At past conventions, with all the “Yo Gabba Gabba” promotion and shows aimed at young children, we’ve generally avoided the Nickelodeon booth. But, this year seems like it’s definitely worth checking out. I’m already reliving Saturday nights on the couch soaking up SNICK.
