Thats interesting about nickeloldeon, I havent watched nick in over 11 years or so (im 24, it hasnt been good since the mid 90s to me, lol), the cool part about the old nick logo imo was that it could be anything, not just slime, but an orange blimp, airplane, and other fun stuff, this jyst looks bland cause it doesnt have a background image, and hell the orange even seems more dull.

The only thing I like is this will be a generation divide, even tho to be fair the old logo has like 3 generations of kids (80s kids from 84 and on, 90s kids and 2000s kids), but overall I dont like it of course, the old logo was perfect for a kids network.

Overall: DOWNGRADE

I agree wholeheartedly. That orange logo has an ungodly amount of brand recognition?you saw it, and you immediately knew what it was for?no matter what shape the orange background took.

This doesn't say 'fun' or 'kid-friendly' to me in any way, shape or form. Major, MAJOR downgrade.

That's because it ISN'T fun anymore. Nickelodeon died when shows like Salute Your Shorts, Hey Dude!, The Adventures of Pete & Pete and Legends of the Hidden Temple weren't shown by them anymore. End of story.

But Nickelodeon isn't being targeted to 20-somethings. It's being targeted to 3-10 year olds. You not being entertained by a kids network says more about your viewing choices than it does the quality of the network.

And while the logo isn't what I grew up with, that doesn't automatically make it bad. But it also looks a whole lot less fun than it used to.

I don't really see any reason why they would change their logo. The old one is classic and it has been around so long. It's instantly recognizable. To me this one is much more bland and boring in my opinion. It's not like they couldn't have just tweaked or updated the old logo either, ensuring that it would still be recognized by the parents of future generations. This one is totally different and barely has anything to do with its predecessor besides the "I" which I think is supposed to resemble the slime which was featured in the previous logo (but doesn't).

Somewhat true, although The Adventures of Pete & Pete is actually much better now that I'm older than it was when I was a kid.

I could see Nickelodeon looking for a new logo now that their programming isn't as splat-centric as it used to be, but this wasn't a move in the right direction. Although I do like the way the dot on the i connects to the letter, like it's all made of ooze.

I'll go ahead and be in the minority here.... Upgrade!

While the previous logo was pretty much iconic, it was almost too simple and generic. I'm good with Nick's new logo.

The logo change was the final nail in the coffin of the Nickeleodeon that me and my sisters grew up but then again when they moved thier studios to Burbank I pretty much saw writing on the wall that Nickeleodeon was changing.

Still don't understand why did use a splat logo anymore. The only time you see the iconic slime is during the Kids Choice Awards. A generation has gone by without green slime. Thanks Spongebob.

Ahh the days of Double Dare... still know the rules by heart.

I like it. Kinda goes back to the channel's 1970s roots. Might as well get away from the good ol' days at this point.

It seems like Nickelodeon has skewed younger in the last, I don't know, ten years. It was more teen-oriented, or at least covered a wider range of kids, say 3 to about 16, when I was in my Nick days (1990-96). As for watching it as a grown-up, I can go on Youtube and enjoy Pete & Pete or Ren & Stimpy, and that's really about it, because those were always fairly subversive for children's television and now we can enjoy them on other levels with the Michael Stipe/Iggy Pop/Chris Elliott cameos, or the questionable jokes that snuck through. But for the most part, nostalgia blurs a lot of rough edges. The sooner we realize and admit that most of those shows we watched as kids kinda sucked, the better.

What the hell does Spongebob have to do with a lack of green slime? If anything, Spongebob is the one show that still resembles the old Nick.

As for the supposed new logo, I don't like it. Although, maybe the new one was designed to be able to stand on its own without the splat when needed, and inside the splat for other purposes.

Spongebob sure as hell does NOT represent the old nick to me, I stopped watching nick before they introduced that crap (I never got the appeal of it).

I googled Nick after reading this and found out that they moved their studios from Orlando to Burbank a few years ago and it really made me sad. Sure I'm a Californian, but nothing beat the days when you'd hear your favorite star of your favorite show say "[insert Show Name Here] was filmed in front of a live studio audience at Universal Studios, Orlando, Florida". All I could think about was how bad I wanted to visit Orlando :P

Ten years ago I would've been the first one out front picketing this kind of change, but considering Nick went down the crapper at least a decade ago, I hardly care.
