Network Description & Basic Information (Source: wikipedia.org)

Nickelodeon (Nick for short) is an American cable TV network for children.

Nickelodeon has produced programs, such as Pinwheel, You Can't Do That on Television, Double Dare, Mr. Wizard's World, Hey Dude, Figure It Out, Fifteen, Clarissa Explains It All, The Adventures of Pete and Pete, Kablam!, Legends of the Hidden Temple, Salute Your Shorts, Ren and Stimpy, Rugrats, SpongeBob SquarePants, and The Fairly OddParents. Nickelodeon also became known for its iconic green slime, originally used on the Canadian sketch-comedy show You Can't Do That on Television, then adopted by the station as a primary feature of many of its shows, especially Slime Time Live.

The world's first cable channel devoted to programming for children and youth, Nickelodeon debuted in 1979 as Pinwheel (renamed to "Nickelodeon" in 1981). It was originally owned by Warner Amex Satellite Entertainment, a joint venture of American Express and the cable division of Warner Bros.; it is now part of MTV Networks, a division of Viacom.

In 1986, Nick held the Big Ballot, an award show voted on by kids that would later become the Kids' Choice Awards (http://www.nickkcapress.com/2004KCA/content/fun_facts.php). Each April, the Kids' Choice Awards show honors kids' favorites in movies, music, television, and sports, and features appropriately juvenile elements like the Best Fart award and a celebrity burp-off. Nickelodeon began producing original animated shows, known as Nicktoons, in 1991. The three original Nicktoons, Doug, Rugrats, and Ren & Stimpy, debuted that year.
