SLIMED! An Oral History of Nickelodeon's Golden Age
tells the surprisingly complex, wonderfully nostalgic, and impressively
compelling story of how Nickelodeon -- the First Kids' Network -- began
as a DIY startup in the late 70s, and forged ahead through the early
eighties with a tiny band of young artists and filmmakers who would go
on to change everything about cable television, television in general,
animation, and children's entertainment, proving just what can be done
if the indie spirit is kept alive in the corporate world of contemporary
media... All from those who made it happen!
*Nickelodeon was my childhood, and I still watch some of the shows that I grew up with, so I'm pretty excited about this one.
