    The Old Nickelodeon Logo

    I must have not been watching Nickelodeon yet, when they had this logo. Does anyone remember it? It's always been orange to me. Probably in the mid 80's, I started watching Nickelodeon.

    *something else that was on my mind*

    I was just randomly thinking of that old "Special Delivery" one day. Which showed the cartoon movies. I use to remember thinking alot of those cartoons use to be so cruded to me, back then. I kind of wondered if anyone agrees. I think I was also so young to understand them too.

    Wow, even I don't remember that one. I'm just going to guess that promo was around the early 80s (1980-1983). I don't know if Nickelodeon was around in the 70s.
    Oo-de-lally!

    How about this: the channel launched 4/01/79. That might be their first promo.

    Also, it was formerly called "Pinwheel" in 1977-1979. They changed. the name to Nickelodeon in 1979. I'm (???) when they said that they were called Pinwheel. That's just kind of confusing, since they had a show called Pinwheel too. I kind of wish there was a A&E Biography about it. They are good in explaining stuff like this.

    Here's where I read most of my stuff and where I learned about the Pinball logo.

    and this YouTube of there many logos through out the years.

    Re: The Old Nickelodeon Logo

    Does the new logo really look like that? I guess it is a nod back to the older logo but yuck.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    If you watch that YouTube video of the Many Logos through out the years, you will see the new logo (it's in the end of that video). The new logo, is just plain orange bubble lettering.

    If, that is what you are referring too, then yes.

    Re: The Old Nickelodeon Logo

    I was counting how old I would had been the other day . On the last year that they had the org. logo (1984). I would had been 6-7 years old . It's like wow, it took me that long to know Nickelodeon's existences. But it maybe right.

    ^ Really? I remember that being with the Disney Channel, but not Nickelodeon. Maybe that's why it took me a longtime to know it exist. I wouldn't understood the cable world yet.

    Re: The Old Nickelodeon Logo

    Yeah. Back when I was in elementary school in the early 80's, a friend of mine had it (back then you needed a little box where you flipped a switch to unscramble pay channels like HBO, Showtime, Disney Channel & Nickelodeon).

    We didn't pay to have Nickelodeon, so I only got to watch it at my friend's house, until I finally talked my dad into getting Nick (and Disney Channel).
