Nostalgia Fit: Top 5 Nickelodeon Shows!

For the record, we didn't have cable back in the day and although we have cable now there is no Nickelodeon channel. So the Nick shows I loved are limited to what shows were aired on free TV. Anyway, I got inspired to blog about this because my friend Ara blogged about Nickelodeon so there it reminded me of my favorite shows from that media giant.

5. Invader Zim

This was shown on RPN 9 weeknights at 6pm. This show is so weird from the stories to the over all look of the show. Its a dark comedy about an alien posing as a human who have plans to take over the earth. The show was short-lived, well it was too off beat for kids I guess.

4. Hey Arnold!

I love the "love team" of Arnold and Helga here! I like how Helga rapidly changers her mood from being bitchy when Arnold is around to love smitten when he is not around. And the Arnold shrine is hilarious haha.

3. The Secret World of Alex Mack

Larissa Oleynik enough said! One of my first TV crushes! I love her quirky powers! I used to watch this on weekend mornings on Studio 23. The show ended on a cliffhanger though leaving to the viewers' mind if Alex Mack decided to use the solution to go back to being normal. After Alex Mack, I last saw Alex err Larissa on 10 Things I Hate About You (wow I realized that movie was shown in 1999, 10 years ago already!). Well, I've read over the net that she continued school and graduated with a college degree. Good for her at least she did not suffer the same fate of Lindsay Lohan.

2. Spongebob Squarepants

Among the five shows here, this is only still airing new episodes. This show celebrated its 10th year anniversary this year! RPN 9 used to air this weekdays 530 pm before moving to ABC 5 /TV5. This is the type of show that even though I watched an episode a lot of times of already it never fails to make me laugh. I even liked the Filipino-dubbed version airing on TV5 right now. I must say they did a good job on the dubbing! Cheers to more years of Spongebob

1. Rugrats

Those cute babies! I started watching this when GMA 7 aired this every Sunday mornings then for a time it moved to Studio 23. I watched all three movies of this show. I love watching the babies adventures which in the grown up world are just pretty simple stuff. I love how the show perfectly captured the coloful imagination of a child. I will always have fond memories of this show :)
