Anybody who knows literally anything knows that Nickelodeon was airing some of the hottest shows on television back in the mid-to-late 1990s.

That’s right, I’m talking your “Clarissa,” your “Rugrats,” even your “Wild Thornberrys” — any of those stacked programs lightin’ up your TV boxes post-school day while you chowed down on chicken nuggets or SpaghettiOs or whatever Ma got you and your dumb little brother at Safeway. You remember those days. They ruled. Well, until you actually had to do your homework.

Well, Nickelodeon is reminiscing too and today, a network exec let it slip that the company is considering reviving one or some of their classic shows.

“We are looking at our library to bring back ideas, shows that were loved, in a fresh new way,” Russell Hicks, president of content and development at Nickelodeon, said to Variety today.

According to the site, Nickelodeon may begin (or has already begun) looking for ways to experiment with “retooled versions” of their classic programming in different formats, as in a movie or a one-off special.

There’s no word yet on what programs are in consideration as of yet, but we’re going to hope this is one of them. Or this one. Or this one. Okay, any of them.

Get a refresher on some of the channels best shows here at Variety.
