Netflix and Nickelodeon Slime Up A Deal

Well, yesterday may have belonged to Disney+. The mouse even went as far as lowering the temperatures in the south to tongue sticking to pole cold to make sure day 1 was successful. But not to be outdone by the new streaming service, Netflix decided to flex its muscles. Nickelodeon, the network rival to Disney, announced an agreement with Netflix.

Now, before you get super excited in hopes that the complete run of 100 Deeds for Eddie Mcdowd will be available for binging, you are wrong. After the success of Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling and Invader Zim, the network and streaming service will be creating all new content with characters and IPs already under the umbrella.

As a huge fan of early 90s Nick, this is not the best move. At the time of this writing, Disney+ is being regarded in such high praise due to the nostalgia. Gargoyles was trending inn the top 5 nationally yesterday. A show that no one except your goth friends in high school remembered, but yesterday, a lot of us were just getting out of school, watching some cartoons, and eating some Totino’s Pizza Rolls. It would be a great move by Netflix to have all the Nicktoons on streaming. The best version of Doug, Rugrats, Rocko, Ren & Stimpy, Rocket Power, and even freaking Kablam would be wonderful to have on the small screen again. And the complete run, not a few episodes here and there, VRV, we are looking at you.

Will the deal be successful? Yes. But without the old content helping fuel the new content, I am wondering how far it can go.

I am Richard and I have a problem. A problem with entertaining people. I have been in the comedy world for over 10 years. I started out as an improv actor making fun and light of everything. Doing that felt rewarding, but I have to admit, I wanted more. I couldn’t get the taste of performing out of my mouth. Does that not sound a little creepy? I decided to start doing my own stand up show. I love to make fun of my family and anything that will make a normal person say what the fuck. The journey still continues, in 2009, I had a dream to create my own online magazine. This is the beautiful corner of craziness in front of you. I have been through hell in my life but being stopped is something that I will not let happen. I am a fighter and hope to make people realize it is ok to smile and think from time to time. It also helps being a nerd.
