Anyone who grew up in the '80s and '90s knows that those were the days. The days of dial-up internet, Tamagotchis, and horrible hair. Of course, as we get older we tend to engage more in revisionist history, but let us reminisce, dammit! Now check out some Millennial memes for even more relatable humor!
The 90's were something of a teen romance renaissance. From 10 Things I Hate About You to She's All That, movies really captured the wildly awkward and often mean experiences of being a confused teenager. BuzzfeedOz Editor Jenna Guillaume is no stranger to these movie experiences. In this epic and hilarious thread, the author regales us with very 90's emotional rollercoaster, complete with three-way phone calls, and, maybe more importantly, a heroic dog.
Alright 1990s kids, calm down and breathe deep. Nothing official has happened yet.
Still, there are credible rumblings that Nickelodeon might be launching a channel exclusively dedicated to cartoons from your favorite decade. You know, like Rugrats, Ren and Stimpy and The Wild Thornberrys.
Try not to hyperventilate. Again, nothing official has happened.
But let us tell you what we know.
A couple of days again, Nickelodeon put up a YouTube video promoting something called 'The Splat' with a collection of cartoon characters from the 1990s all singing about the joys of Nickelodeon. You can watch that here:
And then, to make things even more official, a website was launched, but unfortunately it only says that The Splat is coming. Still no word on when or how or what this Splat thing is.
And those are some 1990s celebrities if we've ever seen them.
At this point, yes, The Splat is probably a thing that will show 1990s cartoons. But without official word of the what/where/when, we're just left with uncomfortable waiting and the slow realization that our childhood has passed us by, underlining the ultimate fact of mortality.
According to multiple sources, Smith's production shingle, Overbrook Entertainment, is in the very early stages of developing a present-day family comedy that puts a new spin on the fish-out-of-water tale while maintaining the spirit of Fresh Prince. (An official longline is still being hammered out.)
I'm told a pitch is being finalized now and Overbrook will begin shopping it around in the coming weeks. Smith would serve as an EP alongside his Overbrook producing partners James Lassiter, Caleeb Pinkett and Jada Pinkett-Smith.
