Snick
SNICK (short for Saturday Night Nickelodeon) was a two-hour programming block on the American cable television network Nickelodeon, geared toward general audiences, that ran from August 15, 1992 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 TEENickOn August 17, 2013, SNICK returned to The '90s Are All That for one night only, which was dubbed as "SNICK-iversary." The promos for its anniversary have continually stated that SNICK is now officially "legal", but mainly to indicate its launch was "twenty-one ears" ago rather than to emphasize the legal age for alcohol consumption, in the United States.

The original intro sequence.

The block debuted on August 15, 1992, with shows such as Clarissa Explains It All and The Ren and Stimpy Show, and even on that same night, it had also saw the premieres of shows such as Roundhouse and Are You Afraid of the Dark? This was the original lineup from August 1992 through the Sping of 1994. In 1994, it had All That and The Secret World of Alex Mack premiered. Starting from 1994 to the end of the (original) SNICK in 1999, the schedule had varied by scheduling television programs in different time slots or removing them from the schedule to make room for other programs.

In 1999, SNICK was revamped as Snick House, which was hosted by Nick Cannon and each week, a celebrity or music group made an appearance. Each week, viewers could go online to [nick.com], and vote for their favorite Snick House Video Picks and the music video with the most votes would be played during Snick House. It was equal to that of TRL.

After Snick House was discontinued in June 2001, Nickelodeon replaced SNICK's normal time slot with "Nick Flicks", or referred to the "Elevator Music" era, which were 90-minute specials. This "Nick Flicks" block lasted from July 7, 2001 to January 12, 2002, and yet again from June 29, 2002, to September 7, 2002. On January 19, 2002, the brand new SNICK began with a newly fresh lineup as: 100 Deeds for Eddie McDowd, The Amanda Show, and SpongeBob SquarePants, with a new revival series of All That was had premiered even Taina and The Nick Cannon Show were on as well. There were bumpers that now featured stills of various SNICK stars with a SNICK "talk bubble" above them, with elevator music playing in the background. 

Starting in September 2002 through June 2004, SNICK featured a series of "On-Air Dare" segments featuring the cast of All That. All but three members every week would pull a lever to determine the night's "dare", which one of the three cast members would have to do so. The three cast memembers would then have to pull the lever to determine that night's "dare." The other three cast members from All That in each segment would then have to be placed in a glass cyclinder. This segment was equal to that of Fear Factor. For example, during this era, there were dares had included: singing the National Anthem in a diaper, apple bobbling in a toilet, taking a bath with a tub full of raw eggs, eating a couple of gallons of blue cheese, and so on and so forth. During this era, the SNICK line-ups went through some major transitions including the phasing out of The Nick Cannon Show (which was on from September 2002 to February 2003), and the inclusion of Romeo!, from February 2004 to August 2004.

In 2004, during SNICK's "summer vacation", graphic design company "Beehive" created brand new bumpers for Saturdays on Nick, featuring orange SPLAT's morphing into a show's character. Instead of saying "SNICK", the announcer said "Saturday Night Nickelodeon". Their final schedule for the block was All Grown Up!, All That, Romeo!, and The Amanda Show. Instead of Snick and Saturday Night Nickelodeon, it was now reverted to TEENick for the 2004-2005 through 2009, when the name was dropped, which it was later used to (with its name changed to TeenNick) as the name for the name for the rebranded TheN. 

SNICK on The 90's Are All That

TeenNick airs 90's era Nick shows at 12:00 AM ET/11:00 PM CT through 4:00 AM ET / 3:00 AM CT, under the banner of the block entitled "The 90's Are All That". The 90's Are All That have been around since October 2011-present. The 90's shows such as Kenan and Kel and All That are the only shows on that block, that are the most promient and consistent on the SNICK lineup, to get reruns on the block. However, it was then announced during the week of December 26, 2011 until December 31, 2011, TeenNick aired every classic SNICK lineups during the 90's, and to follow it up on December 31, 2011, with a SNICK marathon and bumpers from the 90's.

On August 17, 2013, SNICK had returned to "The 90's Are All That," in which it was dubbed as "SNICK-iversary." The 90's Are All That did show the original lineup of SNICK was aired (which had consisted of Clarissa Explains It All, Roundhouse, and Are You Afraid of the Dark) with the exception of Roundhouse, which was replaced by All That.
