    The Behind the scenes Story of the network that Shaped a generation. SLIMED! is the first oral history to chronicle the surprisingly complex, wonderfully nostalgic, and impressively compelling story of Nickelodeon, the first kids’ network. Beginning as a DIY start-up in the late seventies, the network forged ahead through the early eighties with a tiny band of young artists and filmmakers, transforming itself into a cultural force in the late eighties and nineties that would change everything about cable television, television in general, animation, and children’s entertainment.

    Would you try another book from Mathew Klickstein and/or Nick Podehl?

    I will never by another book from Mathew Klickstein. Even from the foward, you are lost.


    What could Mathew Klickstein have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    This book is extremely hard for follow if you don't remember who played Merv on Welcome Freshman, produced Pete and Pete, or the entire cast of You Can't Do That on Television. And keep in mind, most actors did not go on to bigger and better things, so googling them can be difficult. There are no introductions to each person being interviewed other than their name, and the author skips around shows and topics with no segway. I coudn't finish it.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Nick Podehl’s performances?

    The performance is fine, but an oral history doesn't take much performing.
