Classic Nick Wednesday
Slimed! An Oral History of
Nickelodeon's Golden Age
August 14, 2013
Welcome back everyone! Autumn is just around the corner and I know I’m looking forward to hanging out with you guys again. As some of you may know I chose to take the summer off from my Classic Nickelodeon Wednesdays, and blog postings, but now I’m back with what I’m calling my “Season 2”. So to start off the new season I’d like to tell you about a new book called “Slimed! An Oral History of Nickelodeon's Golden Age” by Matt Klickstein.
Matt has interviewed over 250 creative VIPs involved with the creation of Nickelodeon and tells us the story of how the network began “as a DIY startup in the late 70s” to their struggles in the early eighties as they gathered together young artists and filmmakers who set out to change everything about cable television, television in general, animation, and children's entertainment.
On August 2nd their Facebook page announced a chance to win a free, autographed copy of Slimed by telling them your favorite Nickelodeon memory. The person with the "best memory" will win a free copy of SLIMED!
According to their Facebook page: “The author of the best story gets a FREE copy of SLIMED! (autographed by the author and special guests). And don't worry: Those of you who have already participated are still in the running!”
With the book scheduled to be released on September 24, 2013 Matt has decided to make this offer to the fans one more time, “especially for the MANY new folks checking in on the site and on SLIMED! these days.”
So if you think you have a winning memory check out the “Slimed! An Oral History of Nickelodeon's Golden Age” Facebook page and add your memory to the list!
