For decades, Nickelodeon has been the go-to spot for great children’s programming. Stars like Kenan Thompson and Melissa Joan Hart got their start on the channel. While it looks wholesome, there’s been some situations that dented the network’s reputation. We look at five shocking facts surrounding this channel.

What’s In A Name?

SpongeBob SquarePants has been calling Bikini Bottom home since 1999. How exactly did the town get such a peculiar name? Well, Bikini Bottom is reportedly a location near Bikini Atoll. The region is mainly known for various nuclear testing done in the ’50s. This connection is strengthened by the magazine Toxic Waste Monthly appearing in the newstands.

140 Characters Of Shame

In 2012, Jason Biggs landed the role of Leonardo in Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. One tweet nearly cost him his job. During the 2012 Republican National Convention, Biggs made a cruel joke about Paul Ryan’s wife. Since Nickelodeon was promoting his Twitter feed, the joke was seen by thousands of kids. Biggs quickly deleted the tweets, and the channel had to issue an apology.

Unfortunately, it broke the rule that no Nick show actually mentions that it’s the final one. It also broke the fourth wall with both voice actors calling each other by their real names. While the episode didn’t air, storyboard art and audio of the episode leaked online.

Crash And Burn

Teen sitcom iCarly earned seven Emmy nominations during its time on the show. Offscreen, the network was in hot water for an incident involving high-wires.
