Does anyone have any links to videos, downloads, or any cool material relating to old Nickelodeon shows from the late 80s or early 90s? Preferably, like, "Finders Keepers" "Double Dare" "You Can't Do That On Tellevision" or "Nick Arcade"? I know it's random and is probably in the wrong section, but I am just desperate to find some of this classic material.

i know almost everything about classic nickelodeon!!! i have all of kennan and kel and the agry beavers on dvd. seasons 1 and two fo pete and pete, season oen fo clarissa explains it all, and my frind has all of rocko and are you afraid of the dark
Thanks soooo much, that link set me right off on the right direction. I'm getting ready to watch "You Can't Do That On TV" for the first time in probably 17 or maybe 18 years, I used to watch it with my sister back in the day, I was a kindergardener and she was abou to go to high-school. I'm actually gonna call my sister and tell he what I'm watching!
Karma to YOU.
Anyone else wanna help feed an addiction that is going hungry?
EDIT: I'm also finding "Eureeka's Castle," "Pete and Pete," and the old Chuck Norris cartoon!
^ awesome link man! I also found a really cool Torrent site (membership only) that has allot of current Adult Swim, MTV, and Comedy Central, as well as some old school Nickelodeon, Old MTV, and HBO shows. Just the other day I found most of the "EEK! The Cat" series on there, as well as "Clarissa," "Hey Dude," "Salute Your Shorts" and some more.
I wanna take the time to thank everyone who helped me on my quest for classic Nick: Thank you.
Now, on to my next favor to ask:
Did anyone watch Finders Keepers? It had Wesley Eure (of "Land Of The Lost" and "Toolbox Murders") and was one of the best-worst tv shows ever. Wesley would make these jokes and often the crowd would boo every joke he made. It made for some truly addictive TV. I know there is an episode on Youtube linked here:
Now I was wondering if anyone knew where to find any other episodes on the net. Nickelodeon Gas used to play it 4 times a day, and recently took it off of their rotation, though it is still scheduled every day. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Note to any interested: I'm about to start recording the two episodes of Nick Arcade every day, with the intention of someday upping them to the internet. Before I can do that, I have to find the sofware for my Digital video converter.
Nah, but I wikid it and it said it premeired after 1996, which was around the time I stopped watching Nick completely. To be more exact, I stopped watching when cartoons like Hey, Arnold or Angry Beavers came out. I was more of a viewer in the days of Double Dare, Nick Arcade, You Can't Do That On TV (later seasons), Hey, Dude, and Round House.
It's called "Cartoon All-Stars To The Rescue." If you watched cartoons in the late 80's or the early 90's, you will for sure remember most of these characters. Featuring the cartoon version of Alf(!!!), Garfield, Smurfs, Winnie The Pooh, Kermit The Frog, ALvin and The Chipmunk and more. This is an anti-druq, after-school propaganda, hosted by none other than "Uncle" George, and "Aunt" Barbara. Yep, the Bush's.
YEAH I want some Are You Afraid Of The Dark sooo bad. That show was awesome!!! Also, I met Alex Mack once, she went to a private school that I attended for a semester. She was actually cool, and her boyfriend was really cool, we'd always chill in between classes.

I may be dating myself a little with this one (born in '82), but growing up, we got cable television around 1986, and there was a show called "Something Special." It may have sucked. It really can't recall that well because I was so young, but I remeber watching it EVERYDAY! I have been looking around the net but can't seem to find any of the episodes. Also, there used to be a mini-show that was played in between regular shows that featured a stop-motion glass cup (I believe there was a cowboy on the cup) that went around the kitchen interacting with other utencils. If anyone knows where to grab it online, link it up brothers! I stopped watching around the time of Clarissa and Are You Afraid of the Dark. My little brother was getting into Nickelodeon around that time, but my interest in rock music was begining to manifest itself. New obsessions arose!
