Nickelodeon are keeping our constant thirst for nostalgia exceptionally well watered as of late. Not only have they resurrected 17 treasures from the '90s and whacked them back on to our TV screens via the launch of TeenNick’s 'The Splat,' but now it turns out they've given the streaming site Hulu rights to many of their classic shows. This, my friends, means we can binge on as many episodes of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as our regressive hearts desire.
As if you needed to be told, this is super exciting news. The Splat, which runs childhood faves such as Clarissa Explains It All and Legends of the Hidden Temple, has done an excellent job of tapping into an audience already pining for the double denim'd days of old. However, unlike TeenNick’s airing of a couple of episodes per night, Hulu's service is essentially giving us access to back-to-back stream-a-thons on which we can gorge unrestricted.
Available now, shows such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Hey Arnold!, Sanjay and Craig and Breadwinners have all been added to Hulu's Nickelodeon page. Doug and Rugrats have also been confirmed.
For those of you unfamiliar with Hulu's service, it's essentially the same as Netflix, charging a monthly fee of $7.99 for a subscription with adverts or $11.99 per month without.
Although, admittedly, the selection of shows currently available on Hulu is nowhere near as impressive as Netflix's, hopefully this collaboration with Nickelodeon will raise the bar in terms of content and help the site gain a larger presence within the industry.
Regardless, $7.99 ain't much for a animated trip down memory lane, is it?
