On August 11, 1991, Doug, Rugrats and Ren & Stimpy all premiered on Nickelodeon, becoming the first original animated series of the channel, also known as Nicktoons. They were followed by Rocko's Modern Life in 1993 and Aaahh!!! Real Monsters in 1994. Hey Arnold!, KaBlam!, The Angry Beavers, CatDog, Oh Yeah! Cartoons, The Wild Thornberrys, SpongeBob SquarePants and Rocket Power were the other Nicktoons released in the 90's, many of which ran until the early 00's. The 2000's saw other series join the Nicktoons club, such as As Told by Ginger, The Fairly OddParents, Invader Zim, ChalkZone, The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron, Danny Phantom, Avatar among others. In the last decade, several shows were created, but only The Loud House remains current, along with other series created in the past few years, like The Casagrandes, not to mention SpongeBob SquarePants, one of the longest-running shows in Nickelodeon, after 280 episodes distributed among 13 seasons, and with two spin-offs released this year: Kamp Koral: SpongeBob's Under Years and The Patrick Star Show (which by the way, weren't very well received by a lot of long-time fans of the franchise). Many of the Nicktoons, especially the early shows and movies derived from them, have gone on to become pop culture classics, inspiring all sorts of merchandise, memes and references that keep them alive today, years after most of them stopped airing. Several videogames have also been released featuring the Nicktoons' characters, the latest one being announced last month, Nickelodeon All Star Brawl.
UPDATE: Drake Bell pleads guilty to the charges brought upon him and faces two years in prison. Jared "Drake" Bell, best known for starring in Nickelodeon's Drake & Josh, has pleaded not guilty to endangering a child in Ohio. According to Cuyahoga County court records, Bell, 34, was charged with attempted endangering of a child, which is a fourth-degree felony charge, as well as disseminating matter harmful to juveniles, a misdemeanor. What does disseminating mean? Disseminating matter harmful to juveniles establishes that any material or performance is considered ‘obscene’ when considered as a whole. The charges stem from a December 2017 interaction between Bell and a 15-year-old child at a Cleveland nightclub, Tyler Sinclair, a spokesperson for Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael O’Malley, told BuzzFeed News. In a statement, Sinclair said the child filed her case in Canada in 2018, which authorities brought to the Cleveland Division of Police. The subsequent investigation found the alleged victim had established a relationship with Bell "several years prior" and had attended a concert of his in December 2017. "While there, Bell violated his duty of care and, in doing so, created a risk of harm to the victim," Sinclair said. "The investigation also revealed that months leading up to the concert, Bell sent the victim inappropriate social media messages." It is not immediately clear what prompted the charges, however, Fox8 News has reported that Bell allegedly engaged in an inappropriate chat with a victim ‘that, at times, was s/exual in nature.’ Bell posted a $2,500 on Thursday and was also ordered to provide a DNA specimen. "All facts will be revealed in a courtroom," Bell's lawyer, Ian Friedman, told the Associated Press. Friedman could not be reached by BuzzFeed News. Court records show Bell resides in Los Angeles and is scheduled to appear in court via Zoom on June 23. Bell has previously had run-ins with the law due to DUIs
“My experience with acting is, I’m so ashamed of the parts I’ve done in the past,” she said. “I resent my career in a lot of ways. I feel so unfulfilled by the roles that I played and felt like it was the most cheesy, embarrassing.” “I did the shows that I was on from like 13 to 21, and by 15, I was already embarrassed,” McCurdy recalled. “My friends at 15, they’re not like, ‘Oh, cool, you’re on this Nickelodeon show.’ It was embarrassing. And I imagine there’s a very different experience to be had with acting if you’re proud of your roles, and if you feel fulfilled by them.” “My family didn’t have a lot of money,” said McCurdy, whose mother encouraged her to begin acting as young as age 6. “This was the way out, which I actually think was helpful in driving me to some degree of success.” The kid actor said that “always, always, always, acting was difficult for me,” adding that her nerves often got the best of her. “Once I started to get the nerves under control was when I started to actually get some traction, but I ultimately quit after my mom passed away because with her death kind of died a lot of her ideas for my life, and that was its own journey, and a difficult one for sure,” she explained.
