Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first oral history to salute the network that shaped a generation.

Nineties nostalgia is just ramping up. In response to massive demand, Nickelodeon is releasing many of its 90s shows on DVD and has created a nighttime block of 90s programming. An entire generation grew up on shows like Rugrats and Salute Your Shorts, and journalist Mathew Klickstein asked the creators of those awesomely irreverent programs to share their favorite inside stories. Drawing on interviews with hundreds of Nick alumni, Slimed! is more than just a nostalgic look at Nickelodeon's Golden Age; its also the fascinating story of how a ragtag group of young film school grads created a cultural force.

Synopsis:

SLIMED! An Oral History of Nickelodeon's Golden Age tells the surprisingly complex, wonderfully nostalgic, and impressively compelling story of how Nickelodeon — the First Kids' Network — began as a DIY startup in the late 70s, and forged ahead through the early eighties with a tiny band of young artists and filmmakers who would go on to change everything about cable television, television in general, animation, and children's entertainment, proving just what can be done if the indie spirit is kept alive in the corporate world of contemporary media... All from those who made it happen!
