    The Secret World of Alex Mack



    The show focuses on a teenage girl, Alexandra "Alex" Mack, who becomes accidentally contaminated with an experimental chemical substance called GC-161. This results in certain powers, such as the ability to "zap" people and objects with an electrical charge, move objects by telekinesis, and change her shape into a silvery liquid. Throughout the series, the owners of the chemical plant which had been researching GC-161 continuously search for the local kid who was contaminated in order to conduct experiments, although their attempts are futile. Alex's best friend Ray, and eventually her sister, Annie, help her conceal the accident and her powers from her parents and others.

    Ren And Stimpy



    Ren and Stimpy are the eponymous characters of two American animated television series created by Canadian animator John Kricfalusi. Ren Höek, a neurotic "asthma-hound" chihuahua, and Stimpson J. Cat (a.k.a Stimpy), a fat red simpleton (but occasionally intelligent) cat, wander around in nonsensical adventures reminiscent of the golden age of American animation. Kricfalusi created the characters around 1979, while working for low-budget TV cartoons after moving to the United States. The characters were originally conceived as individual doodles unrelated to one another, and it was Kricfalusi's co-worker Joel Fajnor who told Kricfalusi to pair them together.

    Double Dare

    Double Dare was a children's game show, originally hosted by Marc Summers, that aired on Nickelodeon. It is often credited with putting the then-fledgling network on the map. The show originated from the WHYY-TV studios in Philadelphia in 1986. In 1987, the show temporarily moved to New York City for a special weekend edition called Super Sloppy Double Dare. The show returned to Philadelphia in 1988; by then Viacom syndicated the show to the young Fox network. In markets where the Fox station wasn't owned and operated, or there was no Fox station, the show aired on independent stations. The Super Sloppy format reappeared the following year, and production of the show moved to Universal Studios Florida, where it remained until its cancellation in 1992. The final episodes aired in 1993.

              I used to watch these programs religiously. Salute Your Shorts is still one of my all time favorite shows. They should still show these shows on nick, I would still watch. btw, Legends of the Hidden Temple, and Guts both sucked.
