    Hyped for the Rocko special. Just watched the Wacky Deli live reading and it was great.

    Which show?

    Hey Arnold! - definitely not; Craig Bartlett posts some of the new artwork on Facebook, and the characters look the same as always. Besides, it's supposed to take place pretty much right after the end of The Journal.

    Rocko's Modern Life - the only characters can can really "age" are Filburt's kids, and they did appear as adults in the last episode (well, if you don't count the Earth Day special).

    Invader Zim - doubtful, an older Dib and Gaz wouldn't be as funny.

    Rugrats (and I have not heard anything about bringing this show back) - been tried (remember All Grown Up! ?).

    I don't think Nickelodeon would want to revisit that train of thought, especially if they want their reboot-specials to be recognizable or gain any profit. I didn't like All Grown Up too much personally, though I know some like it just the same or even more than the original.

    I don't want to imagine my Arnold as anything other than a football-headed kid with a wicked bedroom.

    I used to like All Grown Up but its been a long time since I saw it. with how my opinion on rugrats has changed, I'm curious to see if my opinion on AGU would.

    man i seriously can't wait till Hey Arnold! I've been wanting this for so long, and the fact that it's actually happening is so surreal.

    Agh, I know! My favorite Nicktoon back in the day. I didn't think the show actually stood a chance to get a reboot, especially attempting to do it in modern Nickelodeon. And yet I happened. Some unknown executive out there cares about us.

    I'm really digging the semi-redesign. Wasn't it supposed to come out this year sometime? Haven't seen any trailers yet.

    Huh. Well, if the final product's anything like the concept art, I'm sold.

    Who am I kidding? I'd watch it if it was drawn by a five-year-old off the street.
    The sheer fact that Arnold's back is good enough.

    I was younger when both the original and All Grown Up were on and I liked it. But I also watched Yugioh. I didn't have good taste as a kid.

    Chances are you saw the episodes from after the original writing staff left. Those were never good in the first place, and if you were young at the time, you wouldn't have been aware of the fact that after the original 65 episodes, it was a completely different show.

    Thought I would expound on my response to this 21 months later.

    This kind of view of the show stems from half-assed viewing with preconceived notions. The Nickelodeon Doug was nuanced and sophisticated; so much so that most adult viewers miss crucial details in numerous episodes.

    Take the episode, "Doug Gets His Ears Lowered." The average viewer probably thinks, "oh, it's just about him getting a haircut. ~Yawn~," or, if they hear Doug breaking down the message at the end, they don't actually understand what he was saying, thinking, "oh, the moral is 'be yourself.' How cliched." They completely missed the actual point - that being, the episode just completely turned the expression on its ear (no pun intended), mocking the seeming meaninglessness of it and then extracting an actual meaning from the expression, with the rationale for that actual meaning being contained within the same sentence used to mock the seeming meaninglessness of it.

    Doug comes to this epiphany while arguing with the crazy British haircut lady who is telling him all the stupid things she is going to do to his hair, ignoring what he is telling her.

    Her: You'll look so fabulous, you won't even recognize yourself.
    Doug: But I don't want to not recognize myself. How would I know who I am?

    Doug leaves, finds a different barber, is glad he did, and then rephrases this pivotal moment in his journal entry.

    "Everyone was trying to make me different. But I know now that you have to be who you are. Because if you aren't who you are then...who are you?"

    The meaning, of course, is that when people say the old cliche, "it's important to be yourself," what they should really say is, "don't allow other people to dictate who you are/change you." When someone lets others dictate too many things about themselves, over time, they can get to the point where they figuratively don't recognize themselves anymore and don't know who they are to begin with. "Because if you aren't who you are then...who are you?" In the very same mocking question that can be used to mock the stupidity of the wording of the expression, "be who you are," therein actually lies the reason for not allowing others to change you. If you don't maintain your identity, you lose it...and that's the question you will end up asking yourself: "Who am I?"

    Doug recognizes other people trying to tell him how his hair should be is a microcosm of that phenomenon.

    Obviously, as most adults wouldn't pick up on the depth of this episode, neither would most kids. Nonetheless, I'm sure the network execs thought a superficial reading of it would suffice.

    Yeah, no. How is it possible for your reading comprehension to be this bad?

    1. The Nickelodeon shows I talk about were more sophisticated than anything The Simpsons has done the last 20 years or so. There's no rule here that says I have to talk about The Simpsons. Besides, it must be a children's show since I watched it as a kid in the 90s and there were tons of Simpsons-related products marketed to kids. I had a Simpsons lunch box.

    2. There is no such thing as a "children's show," outside the educational series specifically aimed at educating children. I can prove it to you. If you were to add swear words to any of these shows without changing anything else, suddenly people would say they are "adult shows." If you add casual vulgar mentions of having sex or using drugs to any of these shows, same thing. And that's absolutely ridiculous. There's a difference between "not appropriate for kids" and "an adult show." A show that is not appropriate for kids contains the aforementioned restrictions, but that shouldn't be used as the barometer for something being an "adult show." Likewise, a show lacking those restrictions shouldn't make it a "kids show."

    If a show is unsophisticated/simplistic/poorly done in whatever areas, that doesn't make it a "kids show." It just makes it a bad show. A bad show with swear words and/or sex doesn't suddenly become more appropriate for adults to watch than a bad show without those things. Two and a Half Men is no more an "adult show" than "Rocket Power." It's inappropriate for kids, whereas Rocket Power is not, but that doesn't mean an adult is watching anything more appropriate for them when they watch the former than the latter. They're both low-brow garbage and enjoying them demonstrates bad taste.

    And a bad show that lacks those restrictions doesn't somehow become redeemed as "a kids show." Whether dumb kids enjoy it or not, it's still shit.

    What's especially funny about this "adult show/humor" mentality is how the fascination with swearing, sex talk, etc. is a juvenile mindset. It's the middle school and high school kids who think those things are so entertaining. Well, there are adults who still have that mindset, but having that mindset at that age is considered to be immature.

    A show is for kids if it's aimed at kids and doesn't have any kid-unfriendly content.

    A show is for adults if it's aimed at adults and has kid-unfriendly content.

    BUT, there is not much TRUE "children's shows" in the sense of "only kids can enjoy it". Pretty much every kids show has adult appeal, outside of some of the really cheap/innocuous ones.

    You probably won't listen but
    You're a dolt with the IQ of a peabrain that probably loves lowbrow sitcoms like The Big Bang Theory, Frasier and Seinfeld to not grasp the biting satire and wit of the classic 65 (Rugrats).
