Disclaimer: I bought this book from the bookstore.

If anyone here reading this blog grew up watching Nickelodeon during the 80’s and early to mid 90’s I recommend that you go and get this book.  Slimed! is a book that features interviews with people who worked on shows, behind the scenes on shows, and even former nick executives.  While it seems like it’s a little disjointed to follow, it really isn’t once you get started reading.

The book is broken up into sections, and in each section are stories from each person. But then the stories seem to cross people. To me it feels like there were a bunch of people in a room talking and it was just written down. Which is cool.

Some of the TV shows that haven’t even been mentioned in YEARS were talked about so I was excited for that, (shoutout to Fifteen (aka the show before Ryan Reynolds got really hot) and Roundhouse (The show that LOVE to this day and that at one time I was pen-pals with one of the cast members).

I really don’t have much to say about this book, but it’s just more of a if you grew up watching Nick, and remember the original line up of SNICK and the original Nicktoons, this book is a great look down memory lane.
