Slimed!: An Oral History of Nickelodeon's Golden Age by Mathew Klickstein

An Entertainment Weekly Best Tell-All of 2013!

One of Parade Magazine's Best Books About Movies/TV of 2013!

The behind the scenes story of the network that shaped a generation

Slimed! is the first oral history to chronicle the surprisingly complex, wonderfully nostalgic, and impressively compelling story of Nickelodeon, the first kids’ network. Beginning as a DIY start-up in the late seventies, the network forged ahead through the early eighties with a tiny band of young artists and filmmakers, transforming itself into a cultural force in the late eighties and nineties that would change everything about cable television, television in general, animation, and children’s entertainment. Compiled from hundreds of original interviews with writers, actors, producers, artists, and other Nick alumni, this is the incredible story of Nickelodeon straight from those who made it happen. Whether you’ve always wondered if Sam ever fell out of Clarissa’s window, what the real story was behind Ren & Stimpy, how an entire network was built on kids-first entertainment, or you just want to relive some of your favorite television memories, it’s time to get Slimed!

I am ZIM, a perfectly normal human just like you. Even though I most definitely do NOT have a mission to conquer this dirt ball of a planet and all humans on it, if I did it would have been going quite well if it weren't for that Earth-monkey with the gigantic head: Dib!!! However, my mission, which I do not have, has been delayed for over 10 Earth years now! "Why", you ask? Because I was cancelled! Cancelled? Zim? Impossible! Fortunately, I will be returning in the form of a comic book, thus my quest to become RULER OF ALL HUMANS continues!!! I'm afraid I must be going now because GIR-- uhh... I mean my dog is messing with the power amplifier again.

Um...what do you mean pegasisters don't get the same respect as bronies? You gals get treated the same way as us bronies; loved and tolerated by other bronies or pegasisters, and sometimes hated but most of the time accepted by non-bronies/pegasisters. And as for your friends not knowing who Derpy/Ditzy is, they probably didn't see the version of The Last Round Up with her in it, since she created such a big contrevercy.

Hey. Im a brony But i'm a girl We dont get as much respect as the bronies. Thats not fair at all, is it? Today at school this guy that claims to be a brony didn't even know who ditzy/derpy hooves was! And yet some of my brony friends didn't know who she was! Only us girls did. #wewantrespecttoo Respond to **heartstrings** if you agree

hello. <br> TS - Sunset shimmer <br> RD - Lightning Dust <br> PP - Grilled Chese (upcoming episode Three's a Crowd) <br> R - (upcoming episode Rarity takes Manehattan) <br> F - To Be Determined <br> AJ - To Be Determined <br> <p> Season 4 Finale: Old rivales of the Mane Six form a friendship intent on humilating the Six like they did to Lightning Dust, Sunset Shimmer, and the rest. But without the Elements, will the Six stand a chance? <br> Spoiler Alert! <br> <p> <br> <p> In order to save her friends from the rath of Sunset and their foes, Twilight sacrifices her wings. This sacrifice creates magic enough to defeat the foes, who flee for the Crystal Empire (or someplace else) to live as friends. Twilight herself is restored to her true unicorn form, but not demoted from the title "Princess." <br> <p> You can find lots of information on the internet.
