Were you a big Nicktoons fan? Did you obsess over Salute Your Shorts? Do you have a sweet tattoo of Reptaur? Or even better – a really bad one? (Send pics.) If you love old-school Nickelodeon shows, we have that in common, and this article is for you!

The people at Shane.co looked at Google search and trends data to figure out the favorite retro Nickelodeon show in every state… and I’m not gonna lie, I’m a little disappointed with Massachusetts’ pick. So many great choices: Doug, Ren & Stimpy, Catdog, Spongebob Squarepants?!? None of those are Massachusetts’ favorite. Which do you think it is? We’ll get to that in a bit so think, think, think…

In the meantime I’ll give you the Most Popular Retro Nickelodeon Show in some of our neighboring states – I’ll throw in a few extra states too – then we’ll wrap it up with Massachusetts’ favorite. Let me know if you’re happy with our fav.

  • New Hampshire

    Good pick! I give it a 8.5/10

  • Rhode Island

    I’m surprised by this one. Good show but the loudness… never… ends and can get grating. I give it a 6/10

  • Connecticut

    I’m sorry but this pick stinks!! All the great shows and you picked “Chalk Zone?” 1/10

  • Maine

    For real?!? This pick is almost as bad as “Chalk Zone.” Almost. 3/10

  • Vermont

    Underappreciated but still a solid classic. And who doesn’t love the hairy armpit guy who carries around his own eyeballs in his hands? Good pick, Vermont. 7.5/10

  • Florida

    I was never a big fan – but apparently I’m alone on that so I’ll give it a 7/10

  • New Jersey

    I wonder if Britney Spears detests this show. I don’t. 7/10

  • New York


    I’ve tried to watch every Nick show since they started producing TV shows. I didn’t know this one existed until right now. I’m baffled. ?/10

  • South Carolina

    That is the Nick Toon equivalent of a musical “banger.” Very predictable so I won’t give it a 10 but… 9/10

  • California

    See Rugrats above. Spongebob is almost bigger than Nickelodeon at this point. However, it’s still on the air with new episodes so I’m docking it for not being a true “retro” show. 8.5/10


    What show won more states in the entire US than any other Nick show?

    Really? I would have guessed a good 20-30 shows before Danny Phantom. Wow. I’m out of touch.

  • Massachusetts

    Alright. Here we go. Massachusetts’ favorite retro Nickelodeon show is *drumroll*……..
