I’m sorry yall, I was going to try to get this information to you yesterday but we had a big storm come through and I had to unplug the computer. Then we wound up loosing power for over half an hour and this is the first chance I’ve had to get this to you.
There are a few Classic Nickelodeon programs coming on later today (Sept. 2nd) so if you haven’t seen them or don’t remember them or whatever here’s you’re chance to see them.
The first is the remake of the original “Tuck Everlasting” which is based on the book by Natalie Babbitt about a family that lives forever. (Personally I like the original better but the remake is still really good.) This was a Special Delivery on Nick around…’82…maybe a little later.
This is the story of a family that will live forever and of young love. It stars Alexis Blebel and William Hurtly and costars Sissy Spacek. All times given are for the CENTRAL TIME ZONE so you’ll need to check your local listings.

Next is a Classic Nickelodeon reference to a Special Delivery called “Clever Jack”, a musical version of Jack in the Beanstalk, which stars Lucie Arnaz as the host and preformed by the First All Children’s Theater. Filmed in 1985 this classic stars Ben Stiller as the giant, which is where the Classic Nick reference comes in.
The Biography Channel they will air a biography on Ben Stiller entitled, “There’s Something About Ben Stiller”. The first part of the program features, of course, his younger years and growing up with showbiz parents then moves on to his performance in “Clever Jack”. (That’s him on the left with the red cape over his head.)
