Ren and Stimpy had the opposite effect on me.
I second this.
Voted for Nickelodeon simply because when I was a kid I didn't have a real opportunity to watch CN shows (no cable TV and AFAIK no proper adaptation - I watched some of it on some German TV channel, but I didn't know the language), but SpongeBob, Rugrats, CatDog, Hey Arnold and Ren and Stimpy aired regularly with fantastic voice-overs. Ren and Stimply in particular had a huge effect on me. Positive effect. I love that show.
Too bad Nickelodeon seems to have gone to shit. My 11-year-old cousin watches their channel regularly and I caught a glimpse of stuff that's airing now and it seemed pretty...well, let's just say nowhere near the quality of the aforementioned stuff. And it has a ton of live-action shows with child/teen actors that seem cringe-worthy. I mean, live-action shows for kids were always cringeworthy past a certain age, but this is just bad.
As far as CN goes I did later on get an opportunity to watch some of their stuff, but nothing grabbed my interest in the long run except for Samurai Jack which I sorta kinda would like to watch some day, but I honestly doubt that will happen.
Edit: Damn it, I need to finally sit down and watch Avatar: The Last Airbender.
Nickelodeon was initially founded as an alternative to soulless garbage that "The Man" passed off as children's entertainment. Now Viacom is The Man.
Not sure I follow...what's "The Man"?
Are you ... ?! The Man! I mean, he's THE Man! How do you not know him? He's behind everything! EVERYTHING!
I'm the man!
Cheetara (as most of the others) was drawn naked in the pilot episode.
Jaga introduced them to clothes. Strange kid's show.
Bravestarr impressed me with "The Price".
**I modded Sarah Jane (Thirty-Thirty's energy rifle) into FO3.
A really cliche hippie way to say corporate America/establishment/etc.
