This is definetely one of those shows that is intended for a younger audience, but is so ridiculously funny that it attracts an adult crowd.

Definetely one of my top 2 favorite cartoons (Family guy being the other. MAY 1st, WOOT!)

Haha, talking kid shows, I still enjoy watching a few of them, remember the "Dennis the Menace" show? Hehe, I watch that in the morning, I still find it fun for some reason Smile

I watch Family guy as well, but that's more grown up cartoon, like simpsons...

Sponge bob is also fun, not the swedish version though, they even re-made the theme song, translated it too! Smile And they don't call him Sponge Bob there, they call him the swedish version of it, "Skumgummi Fyrkant" or something like that, lol, horrible.

Fairly Odd Parents is one of those shows that's better the more you look at it. In one episode, Timmy is too small to go on the rides at Adrena-land, so he wishes that he had the body of a 16 year old. He's granted his wish, and says, "Alright! I've got the brain of a 10 year old in a 16 year old's body. Do you know what that makes me?"

Cosmo replies, "A supermodel?"

I love that show. Although Danny Phantom is just not as funny. Granted, it does not have cosmo, who besides Peter Griffin is one of the funniest cartoon charachters on the airwaves.

It has its moments, but I'm more of a Jimmy Neutron/Spongebob fan. Danny Phantom just doesn't do it for me. I long for my past favorites: Rugrats and Doug. Rugrats lost its charm once Dill came around and Disney's Doug just wasn't as good as the original Nickelodeon version.

I think that Fairly-Oddparents has its sights aimed at the adults who are watching with children (or without children, or with children too young to even follow it, or watching it after the children go to bed!) because of some of the hip humor in it is not going to be appreciated by the normal crowd of Nick Kids.

Any time they are in "Fairyworld," the fairy home, Timmy meets Cosmo and Wanda at the corner of Penn and Teller, David and Copperfield, or Sigfried and Roy. (I think that I saw a corner of Lance and Burton once, too, but I'm not sure.) There are other cool magic and comedy referenes, too, but these should be enough to keep magicians watching for other little things.

The writing is clever, with cultural references that are definitely beyond the scope of a 10-yr old. The guest voices (Jay Leno, Gilbert Gottfried, etc.) are people who don't NEED to be doing voice work in cartoons.

And the Jimmy Neutron/Timmy Turner tie-in movie was incredibly well-written, especially the handling of the colllision of the worlds of fantasy and rational thought. Great stuff!

I miss Rocko's Modern Life, Angry Beavers, and AHHH Real Monsters.


Also, what ever happened to the other FABULOUS Nick shows, like Pete and Pete, Clarissa, and Salute Your Shorts. Classic stuff really.

I always liked "Are you afraid of the dark". Wonder if it would ever come out on dvd. It was a good show.

"Salute Your Shorts" definitely rocked. That show was so great. "Camp Onawana (sp?). We hold it in our hearts. And when I think about it. It makes me wanna fart." That's quality.

"Hey Dude" was another Nick show from around that time, but it wasn't as good as the other.

"Are you afraid of the dark" was pretty good, too. I seem to remember a special Nickelodeon presentation where Marc Summers ends up in a big castle learning magic from a magician. Does this ring a bell for anyone else?

Yes, it does! It was called "Marc Summer's Mystery Magical Tour". It was actually filmed at the Magic Castle. I still have the entire half-hour special on tape (and have since transferred it to DVD).

It featured performances by Lance Burton and Tina Lenert, with cameos by John Astin (appearing in his "Gomez Addams" outfit) and Stan Allen. Also featured in the special is a 8-year old Shiri Appleby (any "Roswell" fans here?).

It was cheesy, but you did get to see much of the Magic Castle, and some great magic performed!

Camp Anawanna is an actual camp (and former summer camp) that sat in the heart of my service area. "Salute Your Shorts" was the best thing to happen to the camp at that period of time because it gave the camp a colorful theme song that everyone knew. I had a hard time watching it, but thought that it was head and shoulders above "Hey Dude."

A No-Prize to the poster who can post the meaning of the title "Salute Your Shorts."

Some of the Nick shows are recycled and shown on the other Nickelodeon networks (Teen Nick, The-N, Nicktoon). I know that "Pete and Pete" is in and out of the rotation on The-N, which also shows some pretty cool Canadian shows as staples in its lineup.

I seem to keep missing the "Action League Now" segments of Kablamm! that I hear are still being rerun. The superheroes are voiced by a now-defunct morning radio team in Pittsburgh, and I enjoyed this aspect of the show. Somewhere, I have a complete set of ALN superhero toys.

Salute Your Shorts reffers to when someone (hopefully not yourself) gets their undergarments stolen and raised on the flagpole, and they are saluted. (This was in one episode as I remember). Although some shows are either on "The N" or "Nicktoons TV" "Are You Afraid of the Dark" "Hey Dude" and "Salute Your Shorts" are no longer on the air. Only the beginning seaons of Are you afraid of the dark were any good, and there was a magic shop frequented in many episodes. Also, Nick Arcade with Mike O'Malley was a great show! So was Double Dare. The first "All That" episodes also had their moments.

Close enough. It is the action that THE OWNER must do because he has no choice when he leaves the comfort of his bunk to go to the flagpole and sees his undergarments hanging high in the air. There's nothing left to do at that point but grit one's teeth and salute his own shorts!

It is also the title of a parody book (printed in the style of a Michelin "Guide Vert" that gives campers the low-down on life at summer camp. This is one of the things listed in the "camp pranks" section among the wedgies, atomic situps, snipe hunts, and swirlies.

The Fairly Oddparents and Danny Phantom are both great.

Isn't it great that two of the most favorite cartoon on TV today deal with magic. You can do so much with fairies and ghosts.

Think about it....

I've tried. The ones I've met won't let me get near them. Do you use honey? Milk and cookies?

King of the Hill has magician references from time to time (like when Bobby was a magician) or when they were shopping for Bobby's secret admirer and he said "I want something frilly and romantic, like something a magician's wife would wear."
