If there's one thing I've learned about being a '90s kid, it's to never take the little things for granted. Something as simple as a Rugrats Burger King watch could mean so much. If you grew up in the era I did then you understand where I'm coming from.

In case you haven't noticed there's a '90s craze going on, especially since Nickelodeon unveiled The Splat, a channel devoted to all of the network's classic hits and our favorite childhood shows. However, the nostalgia epidemic didn't start there. Over the years I've seen an increased interest in our generation by social media, retailers like Hot Topic, Spencers, and many more of our favorite places to shop. Even the younger generations are coming around, maybe just for the fashion, but with this glorious new channel in progress, our kids will have the opportunity to understand the true meaning of Saturday morning cartoons.

I for one will probably enjoy this a lot more than I should but what can I say, I'm a kid at heart. Since my son was born, I've been purchasing all the seasons to my favorite '90s shows to share with him so when I heard news of The Splat I was ecstatic. Television now days just doesn't have that charisma shows like Rocko's Modern Life, KaBlam, Are You Afraid of the Dark, and Rugrats did. Always telling it how it is with absolutely no filter and no worries about the consequences. Always pushing the limits with what critics might consider distasteful, all the while delivering powerful messages that taught us many life lessons and to me, that's amazing! Or as Nigel Thornberry would say...

Kids today will never understand the simplicity of '90s. Although childhood obesity was up, partially due to the McDonald's super size fries and Rally's Monster fries, Juvenile crime rates were down. We weren't out committing crimes because we were all too busy playing hide and seek until the street lights came on, then heading home in time to join The Midnight Society for a spooky story by the campfire. It's when being a kid meant you weren't ridiculed for the strange behavior you portrayed, or clothes you wore, or the corny things you said. I don't know about the rest of you, but if Doc Brown ever came to me with a Delorean, 1990 sounds about right. Basically...

The '90s are All That!
