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.
