Nick Rewind on television

Nick Rewind was an hour long block on Nickelodeon that aired from 1:00 - 2:00 pm EDT every Sunday in the summer of 2006. It featured such shows as The Wild Thornberrys, Rocko's Modern Life, Rocket Power, and The Ren & Stimpy Show. It also featured old Nickelodeon bumpers and station ads.

Future of Nick Rewind

While Nickelodeon had announced plans to release You Can't Do That on Television and Season 3 of The Adventures of Pete and Pete, Nickelodeon's parent company, Viacom, was in the process of splitting with CBS. Also, Nickelodeon's president, Herb Scannell, had stepped down. It is believed that this may be the reason why these titles and any others relating to Nick Rewind have been pulled.[6] It has also been reported that the clearances for You Can't Do That on Television were too complicated for a DVD release as of yet, since it not only involves the numerous cast members who appeared on the show, but also involves the show's owner, CJOH-TV in Ottawa, Ontario, and in turn that station's current owner, the CTV Network division of CTVglobemedia.[6] The block has since stopped airing on Nickelodeon and with the phasing out of all former classic programming on Nickelodeon's web video on demand service, all future plans for archived programming are unknown. A Nick Rewind channel is unknown.
