I stopped watching Nick once it went down hill. I just don't care for it these days. I've been showing my kids the older shows and they enjoy them more than the crap they show today. Even Nick at Nite had some good shows even though some played in the 60s or 70s. Even MTV sucks. The only show I'll watch on it is Teen Mom otherwise I won't even watch it.80's Nick is overrated. Sure, it had some nice live action shows and those 2 great British Cartoons... but those anime. UGH! We're only starting to get Doraemon now supposedly. Instead we got a show about elves redubbed to be a crappy Smurf clone, that dumb thing about Koalas (because they actually just got koalas at some zoo in Japan, and they made 2 or 3 series). There was some real good anime coming out of Japan in the late 70's, early 80's. Too bad we didn't get any of it on Nick. And all preschool stuff? Really?! I'm sure they'd have to ruin the heck out of them in editing... but wouldn't Nick have been so much cooler with Time Bokan, Dr. Slump, Doraemon and great classics like that instead of filler programming consisting of Japanese flops?
To me, Nick didn't become Nick until balding kids daydreamed, chihuahuas slapped around cats that were masochistic and dumb enough to like it, and babies misunderstood what adults were saying.
OMG!! I LOVE that show! There was the voices of Kyla Pratt, Orlando Brown (for drying out loud... he was the star from That's So Raven), and Tara Strong (sure she started doing the cute noises of the Proud's babies and the dog, but she is now voicing Twilight in MLP - Friendship is Magic... so shocking but very cool), then they were some guest stars for the voices themselves like Mr. Al Roker, Mariah Carey, miss Venessa Williams (voicing the fictional character of Debra Williams), Lou Rawls, Raven-Symone, Miss Beyonce, ... there are so many moments of guest stars to voice for their own or their fictional character. I know this show was supposed to be aimed at African Americans, but what the hey, it was aimed at me too no matter what color you were. Heyyyy, I miss this show so darn much.Am I the only one who found The Proud Family to be a hilarious show?
They have a similar show about comedians making fun of Internet videos on Comedy Central called @Midnight, which I liked. Of course, I only really saw the episode with Eugene Mirman and Kristen Schaal.Yeah. Nick has these crappy game shows now. They have one about Web videos... and we all know how much people love watching internet videos on the not internet. At least they have the Slime.
Don't forget about Harvey the announcer.Though Double Dare did have a comeback of sorts... Sanjay and Craig had a tribute episode complete with Marc Summers.
