Classic Nick Wed. – ‘90’s Kids

If you keep up with my schedule on a regular basis then you know that this week I would normally post an article about a program that aired on Nickelodeon from the very late 1970’s threw about 1987, give or take. Well this week I’d like to post a little something for my ‘90’s Kids.

A few weeks ago, I while I was in Walmart, in electronics, I found several ‘90’s Nickelodeon programs on DVD. I took as many pictures for you as I could but some of them were down a bit far and I couldn’t reach them because my back was hurting. I tried to take pictures of the DVDs and the price. So’90’s Kids, this one’s for you!


OH, on a side note – I believe they **MAY** have Rugrats costumes out this year for Halloween but I haven’t seen them down here in Oklahoma so you may want to keep an eye out for them.

In Search of Saturday

Welcome to “In Search of Saturdays" an advertising space I’ve designed to help our members find those long-lost movies, cartoons, TV shows, toys, games and anything else that we’ve all been looking for, for a very long time.

The instructions are simple. Post your personal “looking for” list in the comments and we’ll all see if we can help you find what you’re looking for. - This will be a group effort please.

If you can’t remember the name of a show or toy that’s alright, post what you can remember and maybe someone here will be able to tell you what it is. Also, please remember that if you are listing television shows or movies please let us know if you are looking to purchase these shows or if you just want to watch them online. Then we, the members of the group, will help try to help each other and go “in search of” those items for our fellow members.

A good place to start our searches is iOffer which, in my opinion, is better than eBay because you can find lots of shows there that you can’t find anywhere else.


MY WANT LIST
This is a list of the Classic Nickelodeon programs that I’m looking for to purchase. Please note that I am a private collector who does not copy and resell my collection. The videos and DVDs that I collect are for my own private viewing here in my home or my Mother’s house where I originally watched them. If you have any of these and would like to sell me copies – for my private viewing – please contact me at peggysueclay@hotmail.com Also, IF YOU CONTACT ME VIA EMAIL PLEASE PUT THE NAME OF THE SHOW IN THE SUBJECT LINE. Thank you.

Classic Nick Wed. – Musti

In 1969 graphic artist Ray Goossens created a cartoon character by the name of Musti, a little kitten who lives his mother and father in a little house in a rural village, surrounded by a large garden with animals and trees. According to the official website, the character was developed in 1945, but there is no documentation to support this claim.

Television Series
By the 1990s Musti had already aired in two dozen countries with a total of 156 episodes but it had first been developed into an animated series in 1969 on Flemish television, with Rachel Frederix as narrator. With stories centering around young children specific stories are told in just a couple of minutes.

In 1980 Musti appeared on television the Netherlands, the narrators were Arnold Gelderman and Marijke Merckens. In the 1990s a second series was made, with a white background, with Musti's original pronunciation, Muh-sti, now changed to Moo-sti.

A new television series was created in 2007 giving the series a fresh new look. Gone were the white backgrounds and flat 2D images; now Musti, his family and his friends and even his home lived in a vibrant 3D world with Kristel Van Craen as the narrator.

Musti airs in Belgium, the Netherlands, Israel, Norway, Japan, Croatia, Portugal and the United States on BabyFirst TV. Al-Jazeera aired the series throughout the Arabic world.

Books
The Flemish publisher Standaard Uitgeverij carries an extensive portfolio of Musti children's books, targeting children aged 3-6. Dupuis printed a number of Musti children's comics in French, based on the character's appearances in the magazine Bonne Soirée.

Software
Educational software programs have been developed with Musti as the lead character. They are currently only available in Dutch. – On a side note they are also available on Android devices, I know because I have downloaded one of them.
