Why do you think Shows like Rugrats, Rockos Modern Life, Hey Arnold, and Ren and Stimpy are becoming more popular now than they were in their heyday?

I have noticed lately store like Hot Topic, Target, Spencer’s, Walmart and even Nickelodeon themselves are big on the whole Nostalgia and revival bandwagon. I have noticed these shows are becoming more popular than they were in the 90s even among kids of the modern age do you think it’s just Nostalgia or could it really be because they were better?

  • Because the stuff they put out today is garbage & people are looking to the past for entertainment. Shows like Ren & Stimpy were weird, wacky, & sometimes pushed the boundaries of acceptability in childrens' cartoons. The shows today will take no risks, are increasingly prone to coddle & condescend to the youth, they are really dumb in their writing, etc. Any show that tries to look whacky today, to me at least, it just comes off as whack. It's very contrived & milquetoast

  • There was a long survey that was sent out to a lot of people asking them what things they thought are coming back, which things should be coming back and such. Classics usually don't fade if they were actually good and retro can be a lot of fun and really entertaining.

  • Things cater to millennial for the same reason they cater to baby boomers. There are a lot of them. That’s it. Boomers were convinced they must have been the most interesting generation ever because media was always aimed -at them- And now the same thing with their kids.
