Nickelodeon Rewind is the brand name given to a collection of DVDs, digital downloads, television blocks, and other merchandise having to do with programs formerly aired on Nickelodeon, including shows such as Clarissa Explains It All, The Adventures of Pete & Pete, and You Can't Do That on Television. The franchise was launched in 2005. It is also currently a series of iTunes collections composed of old Nicktoons. There was also a Nick Rewind block of programming on Sundays during the summer of 2006.

After 2006, the Nick Rewind brand was essentially put on hold, with the exception of several manufacture-on-demand DVD releases, until June 2010 when a Nickelodeon Rewind feature appeared on Comcast through OnDemand, featuring episodes of The Angry Beavers, Hey Arnold!, Doug, The Ren and Stimpy Show, and Rugrats. In the UK, Nicktoons TV was, as of July 2011, airing The Amanda Show as part of the Nicktoons Rewind feature. In 2011, Nickelodeon Rewind returned to mainstream with the release of DVDs through Shout! Factory and The '90s Are All That block (and its successor, The Splat) on TeenNick.

Nick Rewind DVDs

The Nick Rewind name was used for a collection of DVDs of older Nickelodeon television shows. The first two DVDs in this collection were released by Paramount Home Entertainment on May 17, 2005 - the first seasons of Clarissa Explains It All and The Adventures of Pete & Pete. These DVDs sold so well that Paramount then released Season 2 of Pete and Pete in November 2005. The third season of Pete and Pete, as well as Volume One of You Can't Do That On Television, were set for release in the spring of 2006, but after several postponements, the releases were put on hiatus.

In 2008, Nickelodeon created a deal with to sell exclusive manufacture-on-demand DVD sets, which has included several shows under the Nick Rewind name. However, due to Nickelodeon changing its logo in September 2009, subsequent DVDs released of these shows (including those released by Shout! Factory) no longer had the Nickelodeon Rewind banner on the cover, instead using the standard Nickelodeon logo.
