Grab a bottle of Orange Soda and take your place on Nickelodeon's Orange Couch, as this August, NickSplat will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of Nickelodeon's iconic programming block, SNICK!

SNICK with Nick and tune into NickSplat's 25th anniversary celebration of SNICK every Saturday night during August 2017!

SNICK (short for Saturday Night Nickelodeon) was a two-hour programming block on Nickelodeon USA, geared toward older (preteen to teen) audiences. The block launched on August 15, 1992 and ran until August 28, 2004. It was aired on Saturdays starting at 8 p.m and ending at 10 p.m. ET. In 2004, SNICK was revamped as the Saturday night edition of TEENick.

The block debuted on Saturday, August 15, 1992, with a pair of Sunday favorites - the teen sitcom Clarissa Explains It All and the Nicktoon The Ren & Stimpy Show - and the network premieres of Roundhouse (a musical comedy variety series) and Are You Afraid of the Dark? (a horror fantasy drama anthology series).

In 1999, Snick was revamped as Snick House. With this came a number of changes. The block was hosted by Nick Cannon, and each week, a celebrity or music group made an appearance. The format was very similar to the former TEENick block, but was more of a party. Each week, kids could go online and vote for their favorite Snick House Video Picks. The winning music video was then played during Snick. Starting in September 2002, SNICK also featured a series of On-Air Dare segments featuring members of the All That cast.

Programming featured as part of the SNICK line-up included: The Adventures of Pete & Pete, All That, The Secret World of Alex Mack, Space Cases, Kenan & Kel, The Mystery Files of Shelby Woo, KaBlam!, The Journey of Allen Strange, Rugrats, CatDog, The Angry Beavers, Animorphs, The Amanda Show, 100 Deeds for Eddie McDowd, Double Dare 2000, Noah Knows Best, Caitlin's Way, SpongeBob SquarePants, The Fairly OddParents, Invader Zim, The Nick Cannon Show, Cousin Skeeter, All Grown Up!, Romeo! and The Brothers García.

Nickelodeon UK launched a localised version of SNICK in 1999. Airing Saturday and Sunday nights from 7-10pm, SNICK UK featured programming such as The Muppet Show, Deepwater Black and Guys Like Us.
