Andre’s 5 likes: Nickelodeon Shows

Nickelodeon has been around for 43 years, along with the many tv shows, movies, sister channels, and many more. Most Nickelodeon shows were classic tv shows that everyone would remember and go back to for nostalgic purposes. However, not all of them were good. Nevertheless, Nickelodeon has been here for decades and will continue on entertaining us. Here are my 5 Nick TV shows:

 

  1. El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera (2007)

 

El Tigre is an American animated television series created by Jorge R. Gutierrez and Sandra Equihua. Set in the fictional crime-ridden Mexican metropolis of Miracle City, El Tigre follows the adventures of Manny Rivera, a 13-year-old boy with superpowers trying to choose between being good or evil. Manny’s father is a superhero known as White Pantera, and wants Manny to grow up to be good and fight evil. Manny’s Grandpapi is a supervillain known as Puma Loco who thinks Manny should go to the dark side. Emily Ashby of Common Sense Media gave the series 3 out of 5 stars; saying that, “Pre- teens will enjoy the many characters and exaggerated stories, but parents might take the issue with the young characters’ tendency for troublemaking, the absence of a strong role model for Manny, and the overall lack of repercussions for his questionable behavior.” Amid Amidi of Cartoon Brew said that “El Tigre offers hands down the most dynamic implementation of Flash I’ve ever seen in an animated TV series, seamlessly combining the cinematic possibilities more commonly associated with 3D CGI alongside the organic appeal of drawn animation,” while also stating that the series has an “annoying tendency to stage too many scenes on slants and diagonals, voice acting performances that I couldn’t understand.”

 

  1. The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron:Boy Genius (2002)

 

A great tv show with a great theme song and a great set of characters. Jimmy Neutron is an American computer animated television series created by Keith Alcorn and John A. Davis. The show follows a genius 11-year-old from Retroville, James “Jimmy” Isaac Neutron, as he goes on adventures with his friends Carl Wheezer and Sheen Estevez. Throughout the show, various mishaps and conflicts occur on these adventures, as Jimmy’s various inventions go awry. The series has been the recipient of various nominations such as Kid’s Choice “Favorite Cartoon” in 2006 and 2007, and has won an Annie award for “outstanding achievement in animated television production produced for children” as well as a Motion Picture Sound Editors “Golden Reel award”

 

  1. Kenan and Kel (1996)

Aww, here goes with the two best friends in their wacky adventures. Kenan & Kel is an American teen sitcom created by Kim Bass. Set in Chicago, Illinois, the show follows Kenan Rockmore and Kel Kimble, a pair of high school students who go on several misadventures, which usually occur as a result of Kenan devising a scheme to get-rich-quick, or avoid trouble from his elders. These schemes often foil as a result of Kel’s aloof, happy-go-lucky nature. The show employs a number of running gags. Episodes open and close with Kenan and Kel breaking the fourth wall by interacting with a studio audience, standing in front of a red curtain that is placed in front of the main set while they are still in character. A running gag of the openings is Kel never knowing what the night’s episode would be about and Kenan refusing to tell him, while the closing frequently features Kenan coming up with a new scheme, often asking Kel to get various assorted items and meet him somewhere. Frazzled both times, Kel exclaims his catchphrase, “Aww, here it goes!”. It won the “Favorite TV Show” award at the 1998 Kids’ Choice Awards.
