    Anybody remember that little 'toon?
    i remember it, barely since most of my early years, we lived in a cable-free zone and it was rare occasions i caught it.
    but i liked it.
    was it ever released on Home Video or even DVD?

    Were there any other shows from Nickelodeon's early days that you really wish to see again? YCDToT, seems like a gimme.


    guess i will have to :google  or go Youtube and watch what i can find for my nostalgia fix.

    The nostalgia brings tears to my eyes. I watched all of those shows (sans CatDog). :cry 
    That aside, I think Danger Mouse is one cartoon I never watched (for reasons or circumstances I don't remember).

    Danger Mouse has one of the best theme tunes ever. I also once met the guy who voiced him, David Jason. Nice bloke. :)

    Danger Mouse, Cities of Gold, Count Duckula, Pete & Pete and You Can't Do That On Television were the best things that Nick ever carried. The Penguins of Madagascar in HD has made me watch Nick again though.

    I heard that Cities of Gold is going to be continued in a new show next year by the original creators.

    Danger Mouse ruled, period. (I grew up watching that show in French aka Dare Dare Motus, along with Count Duckula another awesome cartoon)

    Double Dare was awesome. I loved the physical challenge and Marc Summers was the perfect host for it.

    I don't remember Danger Mouse, but I remember watching CatDog, Rocko's Modern Life, Rugrats, Angry Beavers and Rocket Power.

    Not the best shows, but they were okay. ^^

    Much thanks, ginrai for the link!
    and it's half off. WIN!

    My Brother in law got me hooked on Angry Beavers
    but before he did, i was hooked on Rocko's Modern Life, which i still think was aired on the wrong channel or at the wrong time slot.
    that show was surprisingly complex for its time.

    never did get into the LA stuff other than YCDToT.
    and damn, how could i forger that Nick introduced me to Mr. Wizard.
    sigh.

    Danger Mouse was AMAZING.

    Last year, I bought my the 'Best Of' DvD set for his birthday. He's 22. And lawdy, that show is good.

    Duckula, also awesome. Noteable for being the only show that you ever saw on any TV sets in 'The Bill'.

    And Rocko's Modern Life was terrifying, but awesome.

    Danger Mouse was one of the many cartoons I watched in the mornings, I always found it creepy and very different to anything else I was watching at that time.

    I watched Danger Mouse religiously as a kid. I bought some of the VHS tapes when they were released a long time ago.

    Then as the DVD sets came out I bought all of those as well.

    How has Bananaman not been mentioned in this thread at all? That show was equally awesome.

    80's/90's Nick was awesome.
