    **SNIP** Nick News, a program that ran from 1992 to 2015 before being revamped in 2020, listed a number of cities with environmental issues. Host Jamie Yuccas said, “What do these cities have in common? They’re all examples of environmental racism, a form of systemic racism where minority and low-income communities are surrounded by health hazards because they live near sewage, mines, landfills, power stations, major roads.” “In Philadelphia, it’s hazardous waste,” continued Yuccas, who also works for CBS News. “In San Carlos, Arizona, it’s a mining project that would dishonor an Apache sacred site. But it has never been...

    Two episodes from the children’s cartoon “Spongebob Squarepants” have been pulled by Nickelodeon. Nickelodeon has pulled an episode of SpongeBob Squarepants “due to sensitivities surrounding the global, real-world pandemic,” Nickelodeon’s Executive Vice President of Communications David Bittler said. The episode, titled “Kwarantined Crab,” features a virus storyline, where a health inspector requires patrons to quarantine at the Krusty Krab after discovering a “clam flu” virus. Nickelodeon confirmed that a second episode, “Mid-Life Crustacean,” has also been removed from the network and other streaming platforms.

    Blue’s Clues, a show for kids between 3 and 5 years old, has endorsed LGBT “pride,” complete with flags for various sexual identities, including pansexuality, bisexuality, and transgender identity. While sexuality barely has any meaning for children this young, Nickelodeon has already pushed to normalize LGBT activism for preschoolers.Nickelodeon rebooted the classic Nick Jr. series Blue’s Clues in 2019, and last month, the show’s “ABC Song” featured a rainbow-colored “P” for “Pride,” and eight separate LGBT flags. The flags represent pansexual, lesbian, bisexual, asexual, gender fluid, transgender, non-binary, and intersex identities.It seems the reboot show, Blue’s Clues & You, did...

    Parents say Nickelodeon and child star JoJo Siwa have some explaining to do after one mom blew the whistle on a game marketed for young children that contains adult content. The co-branded board game “JoJo’s Juice” is recommended for children 6 and up but the content is anything but appropriate for kids that age. Seventeen-year-old Siwa rose to fame on the hit Lifetime reality show “Dance Moms” before turning into a YouTube sensation. The dancer, singer, and actress signed with Nickelodeon when she was just 13.

    On Monday, Nickelodeon suspended its programming to air a message that simply read "I CAN'T BREATHE" for eight minutes and 46 seconds, accompanied by the sound of a person breathing. The message called attention to Minneapolis man George Floyd's death. Floyd died while in police custody after an officer -- since-fired Derek Chauvin, who was later charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in Floyd's death -- kneeled on Floyd's neck for eight minutes, moments that were captured on cellphone video. In the footage, Floyd repeatedly said "I can't breathe" while being knelt on, and the words have been echoed...

  • Rocko's Modern life:Static Cling on Netflix will feature LGBTQ Themes

    Fans had their hopes dashed for a good reboot of Rocko’s Modern Life early on. It happened in an unexpected way, almost like being sideswiped by a flying cherub in a fleeting dream; it was an unreal revelation. It took place shortly after Netflix announced that a new movie based on the popular 1990s show was in the works, and fans recognized it once they landed on the Netflix page and saw the startling reveal with their own eyes. There’s an archive of the Netflix title, and right there in the genre tags it reveals that Rocko’s Modern Life: Static...

    LEXINGTON, Va. -- Mark Rush could not name the last movie in the past 10 years that gave him a belly laugh -- or made him snort or chuckle or laugh out loud, at least for any extended period of time. "The last side-splitting movies I saw were 'Caddyshack' or 'Blazing Saddles,'" the politics and law professor at Washington and Lee College said. "That was way too long ago." Rush and I were talking over dinner at the Red Hen, a farm-to-table restaurant that made headlines earlier this year for its unfortunate decision to refuse service to White House spokeswoman...

    Dan Schneider is a former actor and producer at Nickelodeon. He is responsible for nearly every one of their biggest successes in the last 20 years.

    Dissent may be the highest form of patriotism (when the GOP has power, anyway) but circulating nasty drawings of political opponents has to be the lowest form of dissent. And that’s what the left’s giant temper tantrum has come down to.   According to LA Weekly, “illustrators from studios including Disney, Sony, Nickelodeon and DreamWorks have gotten together to collaborate on the picture book Not My President. A crowdfunding campaign is in progress, and proceeds will support the ACLU, Planned Parenthood and L.A. Justice Fund.” The drawings are all too predictable: Trump as Fascist, Trump as diaper-clad infant, Trump supporters as racists. This...

    Nickelodeon, the American cable and satellite TV network aimed at kids and teens, has introduced its first animated “gay married” couple. Debuting in The Loud House — a cartoon about Lincoln Loud, an 11-year-old boy with 10 sisters — the scene features a friend coming for a stayover with Lincoln. Lincoln and his chum, Clyde McBride, have been counting down the time to the sleepover, so perhaps that’s why Lincoln announces: “Time to make history!” — before he opens the door to reveal Clyde and his two dads. Owned by Viacom Media Network, Nickelodeon targets children ages 2 to 17....
