The Golden Age of Nicktoons by jbwarner86 The Golden Age of Nicktoons by jbwarner86
Obviously inspired by my recent acquisition of the book "Not Just Cartoons: Nicktoons" by Jerry Beck, I did this tribute to what I consider to be the best era of creator-driven cartoons on Nickelodeon. I may do follow-ups for the Silver and Bronze ages, too.

I figure it's also worth crediting the brilliant minds who created each series...

"Doug" created by Jim Jinkins
"Rugrats" created by Arlene Klasky, Gabor Csupo, and Paul Germain
"The Ren and Stimpy Show" created by John Kricfalusi
"Rocko's Modern Life" created by Joe Murray
"Aaahh! Real Monsters" created by Arlene Klasky and Gabor Csupo
"Hey Arnold" created by Craig Bartlett
"Kablam!" created by Will McRobb, Robert Mittenthal, and Chris Viscardi
"The Angry Beavers" created by Mitch Schauer
"CatDog" created by Peter Hannan

When I was a teen, I hated, Catdog, but now after watching the new Nicktoons of today, I regret hating it.
I watched the episodes on Youtube and now I love it, it really was funny.
I'll probably buy the DVD collection soon when I find them.

I believe the golden age was anything up until Invader Zim, or at least until The X's aired.

The Wikipedia is being silly about the Ren and Stimpy Show! They think it was canceled in 1995!

Doug, Rugrats, and Ren and Stimpy all premiered on the same night - August 11, 1991. For the life of me, I can't remember if I watched it, since I was about four at the time, but I was a huge Nickelodeon fan throughout my childhood, so it's possible.

spongebob was made in 1991, that year is not in this list so spongebob is not here, yet the Thornberrys were created before catdog and they appear in the silver age list, a little error i guess
and remember, golden age doesn't mean best age (in my opinion that's the silver age)
